This contemporary property is positioned to maximize the benefit of its unique elevated position and has outstanding far-reaching views over the countryside beyond.
Nestling in a peaceful rural location, this contemporary property offers flexible and well laid-out accommodation extending to just under 3000 sq ft. The property is positioned to maximize the benefit of its unique elevated position and has outstanding far-reaching views over its own paddocks and the countryside beyond and direct access to extensive off road riding across the Cranborne Chase.
A wide entrance hall offers access to the dining room and the drawing room. The latter having an open fire and a set of French doors onto the garden, with a second set of double doors through to the impressive sitting/breakfast room (known as the sun room). This south-facing, dual-aspect room is truly the heart of the home', with two fully glazed walls, framing far-reaching rural views towards Whitsbury Downs and the Cranborne Chase. This room benefits from a wood-burning stove, two sets of sliding doors onto a terrace and also access through to the kitchen, with French oak units, an oil-fired AGA, double Belfast sink and integrated oven, hob, dishwasher and fridges.
The adjacent utility room, with a door to the garden, has a Belfast sink, fitted cupboards and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer.
The principal bedroom has an en suite shower room, as does the second bedroom. The property has four further double bedrooms, one currently being used as a home office, a family bathroom with travertine floor tiles and marble surfaces, and a family shower room.
Approached via an unmade road and into a private in and out' driveway, Hunters Chase has a large gravel parking area in front of the double garage. The house sits centrally within attractive gardens of approximately one acre, planted with a variety of trees and shrubs, such as lavender, heather and buddleia, acers, cherry and silver birch. There are raised vegetable beds and herbs planted within the deep borders. New timber decking has been added outside the southern elevation of the house, creating a stepped-terrace out from the sitting/breakfast room, with wonderful views.
The property benefits from approximately four acres of paddock surrounding it, with post and rail fencing, along with a range of stables, with tack room, feed store and hay store. The stables are set around a central hard-standing yard, with gates directly onto the floodlit, 20m x 40m all-weather manège, installed by Total Equestrian. There is separate vehicular access to the stable yard directly from the lane, in addition to access from the driveway.

I love this stretch of countryside, full of bridleways, footpaths and offering lovely vistas over open fields. The property is designed to take advantage of this unique location.Matt OrchardProperty agent
