Amberwood is an attractive and well presented house with six bedrooms that offers either a large comfortable family house or possibilities for a self contained annexe or for three bed and breakfast rooms in a separate wing to the family rooms. The principal rooms enjoy a superb outlook over the gardens and valley to the heath land beyond. The house windows are double glazed and there is oil fired central heating.
Amberwood sits at the far end of a private road located towards the upper end of Abbotswell Road, an elevated position that allows for lovely views over the valley towards Chilly Hill, Blissford and the open forest. Frogham has a popular country pub and village hall, whilst neighbouring Hyde has a reputable primary school, church, garden centre with tea rooms and cricket pitch. The Avonside town of Fordingbridge (approximately 2 miles) has facilities for most everyday needs, including local shops, a health centre and a choice of state and private sector schooling. The local road network draws the Cathedral City of Salisbury, the market town of Ringwood and the regional centres of Bournemouth and Southampton within commuting distance. The latter two both have airports and there are mainline rail links at Salisbury, Bournemouth and Southampton. Frogham is an ideal stepping stone for further exploration of the New Forest and thousands of acres of moor and heath land are literally on the door step at Abbotswell.
