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 driveway gives access to a parking area immediately in front of a pair of GARAGES with up and over doors, with light in both and power in one. To the side of the garages there is a useful TIMBER SHED.

Staddles is set to the rear of its plot of 0.3 acres to take advantage of the attractive outlook over the garden that enjoys a southerly aspect. A full width paved patio leads onto the GARDEN which has been a passion of the current owner for some years incorporating sweeping lawns offset by a variety of established trees and shrubs, flower beds with perennial and herbaceous plants along with spring bulbs and a SUMMERHOUSE. In addition there is a good size vegetable garden with a fruit cage and greenhouse. The whole plot is very private and enclosed by hedging and fencing.
