Built in 2015 to the standards of the Sustainable Homes Code (Level 4), Honeysuckle Farm is an individual detached country residence set within approximately 6 1/2 acres amongst the rolling countryside on the edge of Rockbourne. The house has been built to the individual design of the current owners, who have created a well planned home which capitalises upon the superb outlook of the setting, with bi-folding doors, large picture style windows and a balcony to the master bedroom designed to draw one's eye to the surrounding countryside.

The sought after village of Rockbourne sits amidst lovely rolling Downland countryside and much of the village is a designated Conservation Area. The thriving community benefits from a reputable primary school, a village hall, a church, popular public house and cricket field. The Avonside town of Fordingbridge (4 miles) provides a comprehensive range of day to day services, including schooling, a medical/health centre, a good range of local shops, banks and a library. The excellent communications network allows ready access to the regional centres of Salisbury, Bournemouth and Southampton; all have mainline rail links to London Waterloo and there are airports at the latter two. A myriad of footpaths and bridleways exist in the surrounding area and there is magnificent out-riding to be had on Whitsbury Downs; the contrasting moor, heath and woodland of the New Forest is approximately 5 miles to the East.
A long driveway leads to the property and opens out to a large parking and turning area with access to the OUTBUILDING, which is divided as follows:
Home Office: 5.49m (18ft 0in) x 4.88m (16ft 2in) Water and drainage connected.
Double Bay Car Port: 6.4m (21ft 0in) x 5.49m (18ft 0in)
Tractor Shed: 6.93m (22ft 9in) x 5.49m (18ft 0in) Commercial size roller door, light and power connected and mezzanine floor reaching over car port for storage space.
The garden surrounds the house on three elevations and is principally laid to lawn with a series of patios and terraces accessed from various points within the house, all of which enjoy a wonderful country outlook. There is also a rockery garden, greenhouse and sapling orchard planted with a variety of apple trees. Much effort and consideration has gone into the landscaping and planting of the outer boundaries with, for example, numerous young willow trees and hornbeams sited on the eastern and northern boundaries. There is also a 10,000L rainwater harvester located beneath a section of decking in the far corner of the garden with a pump feeding the water to the orchard. Wood store along the back of the outbuilding.
A Ha-Ha separates the garden from the land, which also benefits from gated access to the driveway and three separate water connection points. Beyond the upper paddock is a strip designated as a wild flower 'meadow'.
