SUMMARY A substantial sized detached chalet bungalow on a plot approaching three acres in a most sought after new forest location within the picturesque hamlet of North Gorley. The property offers excellent equestrian suitability and offers easy access into open forest. The accommodation provides approximately 2900 sq ft of floorspace. The property also benefits from two recent lawful development certificates for ancillary accommodation, consisting of a large quadruple garage complex and adjoining office suite with kitchenette and cloak room, and a separate gymnasium. A development opportunity, subject to the necessary planning consents being obtained.
SITUATION The property is situated in the hamlet of North Gorley and within the Western Escarpment Conservation area of the New Forest National Park which forms part of the civil parish of Hyde. The nearest town of Fordingbridge is approximately two miles to the North West and Ringwood three miles to the south, both popular historic market towns in Hampshire. Within the hamlet there is a local Country Inn within a short walk, while the parish of Hyde offers a well reputed infant school, village hall as well as local country pub and a popular farm shop. For the equestrian enthusiast, North Gorley is on the doorstep of thousands of hectares of natural heathland and open forest.

EXTERNALLY The property sits on a level plot of approximately three acres consisting of the main dwelling, open paddock land, a stable block/tack room and is enclosed by post and rail fencing being fairly well screened from the road.
