About this property

  • Hill Garth was built in 1962 of brick elevations beneath a tiled roof and the current owners have owned the property since 1993. Until recently they ran a private garden nursery business on the premises.

    The entrance hall leads through to the large L-shaped sitting/dining room, with wood burner in an attractive wood surround. This living space is glazed to the southerly aspect and has sliding patio doors opening up to the balcony/raised terrace. This provides an excellent space to entertain guests, with delightful views across open forest in the background. From the sitting/dining room is an opening to the conservatory, with fitted blinds and views over the gardens on three sides. The kitchen is located adjacent to the main living space, with a range of modern fitted units, work surfaces, sink and space for the usual appliances, together with room for a small breakfast table and chairs. There is a door to the utility room within which there is a cloakroom.

    At the opposite end of the property are four double bedrooms, two with built in vanity units. They share a family bathroom and separate shower room. A small study area completes the accommodation.

    You are immediately struck by the wonderful views across the valley as you approach Hill Garth from the lane. Entrance is via a 5-bar wooden gate over a cattle grid to a gravel track leading up to the property, where there is ample parking for several vehicles.

    The gardens surrounding the property are largely laid to lawn, with a variety of mature trees and shrubs and flower beds. A balcony/raised terrace to the front and pergola covered patio to the rear provide the perfect space for outside living/entertaining. There are two separate areas of planting beds, remnant from the current owners' former nursery business. There is also a small paddock and a pretty ‘dell' at the bottom of the grounds, providing a haven for flora and fauna. The outbuildings comprise stables, a field shelter, workshop and tool shed, providing a useful space for the keen gardener to use accordingly.

I love this part of the New Forrest, full of bridleways, footpaths and offering lovely vistas. The property is designed to take advantage of this unique location.
