Extending to 1385 sq ft, this beautiful attached character cottage offers spacious accommodation across three floors and is available with no forward chain. Located within Queens Road, one of the most desirable locations within Lyndhurst, benefitting from easy access to the open Forest and the amenities of the village.
From our office in Lyndhurst proceed out of the High Street bearing left onto Southampton Road. Take the first left into Queens Road. Continue for a short distance and Westover can be found on the right hand side just before the bend.
Westover was constructed in the 19th century and has remained within the same family ownership since 1921. The accommodation is particularly spacious with two good sized reception rooms, both with characterful fireplaces, and a refitted kitchen and bathroom. The bedrooms are all doubles, with two situated on the first floor adjoining the family bathroom and a further attic bedroom with good ceiling height. Externally, there is an enclosed rear garden mainly laid to lawn with a patio area. We believe this is an excellent opportunity to acquire a characterful cottage situated in one of Lyndhurst’s most desirable roads, with easy access to the Forest and the village, and will suit a wide myriad of purchasers. An internal inspection is highly recommended.
