Situated within the village of Hale in the New Forest National Park, Brambly Hedge dates back to 1910, with later additions. The approach is over a private driveway, which leads to a large parking area. On the ground floor are a number of elegant reception rooms, many of which benefit from views over the gardens. Brambly Hedge benefits from three well-proportioned bedrooms, two with en-suite facilities and a family bathroom to complete the spacious first floor. The grounds are a delight, offering high levels of privacy and extending to some three quarters of an acre, with the majority laid to lawn with mature trees, ponds, shrubs and a securely capped well operated by a hand-pump. Within the grounds are a number of superb outbuildings, comprising large garaging, a home office and excellent summerhouse. The open Forest can be found a short stroll away down the private driveway.
Hale is situated in the northern part of the New Forest National Park and is a particularly quiet, unspoilt area of natural beauty. Whilst fabulously rural, Hale benefits from excellent communication links to the Cathedral cities of Winchester and Salisbury. The larger commercial centres of Southampton and Bournemouth, with their international airports, are served by the M27 and A35, the junction of which is a ten minute drive.
