ANNEXE & OUTBUILDINGS - An attractive 1920s house with large detached annexe, offering spacious and versatile accommodation, set in extensive gardens within a semi-rural location.

The current owners have also built a detached garage complex which incorporates a useful two storey studio, with adjoining triple bay carport.

THE SITUATION

Situated along a quiet road within the hamlet of Burgate, located on the western edge of the New Forest National Park. The hamlet is situated on the A338 road. The nearest town is Fordingbridge, which lies approximately 0.5 miles to the southwest, and offers a wide range shopping amenities and sporting facilities. The A338 provides a direct route North to Salisbury and south to the historic market town of Ringwood, from here the A31 provides links to both Bournemouth and Southampton.

THE LOCAL AREA

Fordingbridge, with its distinctive seven arch bridge spanning the River Avon, is a former market town enjoying an idyllic location between the heath and woodland of the New Forest and rolling chalk downlands of Cranbourne Chase. The Avon Valley long-distance footpath from Salisbury to Christchurch runs through the town, meandering beside the Avon. The town has a high street of interesting independents, including an art gallery, bookshop and boutiques, and essentials such as butchers and bakers. There's also a great selection of country pubs and restaurants in the area, as well as excellent local schooling. The easily accessible A338 gives access to the cathedral city of Salisbury, with mainline railway station (approximately 8 miles north), and the bustling coastal towns of Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole (approximately 18 miles south). Southampton is approximately 20 miles east (via the M27), and London approximately a two hour drive (via the M27/M3/M25).

The entrance hall features a beautiful original circular window and is finished with Travertine tiled flooring which continues through to the Dining Room; a well-proportioned room with staircase to the first floor, and attractive modern sash windows (which feature throughout the house). The adjacent living room has a delightful double aspect, with French doors and a brick fireplace with wood-burning stove and Victorian style tiled hearth. An inner hall gives access to the kitchen/breakfast room, which is fitted with a range of gloss units with granite effect work surfaces over, with a curved Oak breakfast bar and appliances including an electric oven and hob, integrated dishwasher and space for a fridge/freezer.
