The sought after Downland village of Rockbourne sits amidst lovely rolling countryside, much of which is a designated Conservation Area. Rockbourne is home to a thriving community that benefits from a reputable primary school - which is within walking distance - a village hall, a church and popular public house. 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, a building society and a library. The local road 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 outriding to be had on Whitsbury Downs; the contrasting moor, heath and woodland of the New Forest is approximately four miles to the East.
A track running to the side of the cottage provides access to a parking space for a single vehicle alongside the cottage. The track continues parallel to the garden and opens to a large gravelled parking and turning area (potentially suitable for a garage/car port, subject to planning consents). From the parking area there is access to a Greenhouse and Shed.
Adjoining and accessed from the kitchen is a small paved yard with pedestrian gate to the village road and a brick path leads along the side of the cottage to the rear, where the principal section of garden is found. The garden has been beautifully landscaped and benefits from a south-westerly orientation. A large terrace immediately adjoins the cottage, with steps leading to a central lawn flanked by well-stocked, colourful flower and shrub beds and a pergola. A picket fence divides the garden from the parking area.
