A particularly fine family home with separate self-contained annexe, set in grounds of approximately 5.5 acres and located just yards from the open New Forest.
Pond Cottage is located in one of the most prestigious locations in the area, at the end of a gravel drive off Canada Road, close to the open New Forest at Canada Common. The house extends to about 2300 sq ft, together with over 1000 sq ft of annexe (kitchen, sitting room, bedroom and bathroom) many other useful outbuildings and wonderful gardens and grounds of about 5.5 acres.
The property itself is in excellent order and the layout would suit the demands of the modern homeowner with there being a large kitchen/breakfast room with an AGA, separate utility room, a welcoming entrance hall, two generous reception rooms as well as a large conservatory. Upstairs there are four double bedrooms, the master with an en-suite bath/shower room and a family bathroom (again with a separate shower cubicle).
The annexe is accessed independently by electric double gates and offers kitchenette with fitted appliances, shower room, sitting room and bedroom heated via electric radiators. The accommodation is largely first floor positioned over a double garage block and adjacent to a large car port with spacious turning area and separate garden.

From Romsey proceed to Ower and take the A36 towards Salisbury. On reaching the roundabout at West Wellow take the first exit into Canada Road. Proceed for a little over half a mile (if you reach the Rockingham Arms you have gone too far) and take a track on the left hand side, right to the bottom where you will find Pond Cottage.
