Enjoying an idyllic village location, Andrews Farm is a beautiful detached property that was initially built in the 1800s as a pair of semidetached cottages that were then knocked together in the 1970s to form the substantial family home that it is today. Finished to an exacting standard, the property offers wellpresented accommodation that has retained a number of original features whilst also exuding a bright and contemporary feel. The porch leads through to a generous reception hall with feature wooden staircase. To the left lies a formal dining room and, beyond, a spacious sitting room, both of which centre around inglenook fireplaces with exposed brick chimney breasts and alcoves. The sitting room also features large patio doors providing access to the rear terrace and gardens. The large kitchen/breakfast room is an exceptional space that is ideally suited to both family living and entertaining. It is comprehensively fitted with a range of modern base and wall mounted units and integrated appliances including a cream AGA cooker and separate oven with tiled splashback. Attached to the kitchen is also a utility room. The ground floor accommodation also benefits from a large study with dual aspect, and a well-appointed family shower room.

Upstairs, there is a galleried landing. The master bedroom has an ensuite shower room, and overlooks the rear garden and beyond. The remaining four bedrooms are of a good size and are serviced by a well-appointed family bathroom.

Martin is an idyllic and highly sought after village close to the New Forest that is comprised mostly of traditional buildings and is surrounded by unspoilt countryside. There are numerous walking and riding opportunities in the area, particularly in the nearby Martin Down, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The New Forest offers 140,000 acres of ancient forest and heathlands. Martin village has an active and thriving community and nearby Damerham has an infant school and a popular public house. Fordingbridge caters for most daily requirements, whilst the cathedral city of Salisbury offers a comprehensive range of retail and leisure facilities, as well as a direct rail service to London Waterloo (90 minutes). The property is also conveniently situated for motorways with the M27 linking to the M3. The area is renowned for its excellent schools

including the Grammar Schools for Girls and Boys in Salisbury, and state schools in Burgate and Downton. There are also numerous private schools nearby including Forres Sandle Manor and Moyles Court.

Andrews Farm sits on attractive grounds of a substantial size. The property is fronted by hedging, with a pedestrian gate to the front that leads up to the front door. For vehicular access and parking, a five-bar gate to the side of the property opens inwards to a large gravel driveway that leads up to a turning area and garage. The beautifully landscaped garden wraps around three out of the four sides of the house and is predominantly laid to lawn with established trees, hedges and shrubbery to the borders. To the rear there is also a paved terrace with al fresco dining space and views of the local church and surrounding countryside.
