THIS spectacular estate sits in more than 30 acres in the heart of the New Forest National Park.

Bartley Manor is a Georgian manor house, a rare find in the New Forest, and could be yours for £4 million.

The property is Grade II listed and dates back to the late 18th Century with early and late 19th Century additions.

It is set in 30.98 acres of gardens, grounds and parkland.

The ground floor is made up of four receptions rooms, with the most impressive the former ball room. It has now been converted into a sumptuous drawing room opening onto a beautiful garden terrace.

The layout of the ground floor makes for a great entertaining space. Day to day living takes place between the sitting room, kitchen, breakfast room and study/playroom.

Upstairs there is a large principal bedroom with dressing room and adjoining bathroom.

There are four further double rooms and one single bedroom, sharing three bathrooms.

Attached to the house is a self-contained two bedroom flat with kitchenette and sitting room.

The coach house has undergone full refurbishment and now boasts three bedrooms and bathrooms, a large live in kitchen/dining room, family room/study and sitting room. It is currently let out on an Assured Shorthold Tenancy.

The Old Milking Parlour has been converted into a games room/gym and art studio and would make a great entertaining space, as it already has a kitchenette and shower room.

Opposite is the tennis court.

Bartley Manor Farm includes a tack room and two stables, and a large open fronted barn. This part of the estate would be suitable for equestrian use.

The garden and grounds include formal gardens, established pasture and parkland along with Andrews Copse, a wonderful nine acre ancient woodland covered with bluebells in the spring. There is also a 20-year Woodland Management Plan in place, from 2007.

Situated a few miles to the north of Lyndhurst, the centre of the New Forest, Bartley Manor is well located for road and rail communications, lying about two miles from Junction 1 of the M27. Southampton Central (8 miles) has trains into London Waterloo in 80 minutes while Southampton International Airport is 12 miles away.
