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 close 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 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 four miles to the East.
A low brick wall bounds the village road with double gates opening onto a gravel drive, which provides a good parking and turning area and leads to the Double Garage 6.86m (22ft 6in) x 5.18m (17ft 0in), with twin sets of double doors and roof storage space. The attractive mature garden extends to 0.33 acre overall and has been well landscaped and maintained with a large lawned area interspersed with well planted beds, trees and shrubs. Adjoining the house are two areas of terrace and a covered paved area, and there are two garden sheds and a greenhouse.
New Forest District Council. Tax Band: G.

Leave Fordingbridge towards Sandleheath and Damerham on the B3078. On reaching Sandleheath, turn right at the crossroads sign posted to Rockbourne and proceed into the village. Minty's Farmhouse will be found on the left hand side shortly before the entrance to the village school.
