A carefully crafted, bespoke oak-framed home in a stunning forest position with a wonderful outlook and a range of versatile outbuildings.
A wonderful opportunity to purchase a recently built, bespoke, oak framed property with fabulous views over the New Forest heath land and forest, as the name suggests, in a position that is secluded but extremely accessible. Hidden Oak is deserving of a feature in Homes and Gardens as a result of the owners' every attention to detail. Not only has the house been carefully crafted and designed, but also the gardens. These have been landscaped professionally, and planted with a considerable number of mature trees and shrubs for instant effect and all year round interest and enclosed by deer fencing. Within the garden is a heated swimming pool surrounded by flagged terraces at varying levels.
As would be expected, the property incorporates a high quality specification throughout with all rooms featuring oak. This in turn exudes immediate warmth with a contemporary flavour. The majority of the ground floor is open plan, in part with vaulted ceilings, yet has a natural flow allowing personal areas to be created, and at the same time facilitating a wonderful area for entertaining that would spill onto the south facing terrace. Under floor heating generated by an air source heat pump, solid oak internal doors, double glazing, oak flooring, security system, bespoke bath and shower rooms, wood burning stove, balconies from each south facing bedroom, hand built kitchen with integrated appliances and an electric Aga.
The EPC was generated under the property's original name of Joycol, which was subsequently changed to Hidden Oak.
