About this property

  • A delightful family house, dating from the 1920's, with a brick and oak-clad extension sympathetically added in 2003. The flexible accommodation includes a dual-aspect dining room with original pine floorboards and French doors on to the terrace and a gracious drawing room with oak floorboards, an open fire and, again, double doors to the terrace. The kitchen, with a quarry tiled floor, has an oil fired AGA, gas hob, electric oven and a range of oak cupboards with integrated appliances. A study, utility room and shower room complete the ground floor.

    Upstairs, the dual-aspect principal bedroom has a large bay window framing the expansive views over the Avon Valley and an en suite bathroom. There are four further bedrooms, one with an en suite shower room, a family bathroom and a separate WC.

    The Guest accommodation, formerly a pony and trap stable, has a kitchen, two bedrooms and a shower room and opens on to its own private terrace.

    An imaginatively designed, oak-clad double garage has a large loft space above, with the potential (dependent on the relevant planning consents) to create a further room. Adjacent to the garage is a guest bedroom, and separate WC, overlooking the garden.

    The house sits in a striking elevated position, overlooking the Avon Valley and the downland of the Cranborne Chase beyond. Behind the house is direct access on to Woodgreen Common and the New Forest. A particular feature of the property is an expansive terrace that wraps around three sides of the house overlooking the gardens to the west and south, providing stunning far-reaching views of the countryside beyond. The extensive sweeping lawns are bordered with an abundance of mature trees, including beech, liquid amber, walnut, oak, mulberry and maple, creating a very private and protected space. An additional lower area of lawn, formerly a vegetable garden, has a Holly hedge boundary.

I love that this is tucked away so privately, with amazing views and easy access directly into the New Forest.
