Summary An outstanding four double bedroom detached period style residence presenting Michelmersh brick faced elevations and tiled roof, with hardwood double glazed casement windows and doors. Approached over a ‘carriage driveway’ providing plentiful off road parking and leading to a large traditionally built detached double garage with a first floor studio room above. The well planned accommodation is arranged over two floors with nine zone underfloor oil fired central heating serving the ground floor accommodation, and the added advantage of fibre broadband wired directly to the house.

Situation This wonderful family home is located within the New Forest National Park, with direct forest access onto the Hale Purlieu forest area, and benefitting from forest commoning rights of pasture. The house is about half a mile West of Woodgreen with its well known common, where livestock roam freely, and from where spectacular and far reaching views can be enjoyed, including a fine distant view of historic Breamore House. The community at Woodgreen is served by The Horse and Groom public house and a village shop. South of the village are the earthwork remains of Castle Hill, believed to be the remains of a 12th Century siege castle. The property is well placed for access to the A338 for the market town of Fordingbridge (about 3 miles) and the Cathedral City of Salisbury (about 9.4 miles). The nearest railway station is at West Dean (about 10 miles) on the Wessex Mainline serving Romsey and Salisbury- there are regular direct rail services from Salisbury to London Waterloo in about one and three quarter hours.
