The property occupies an outstanding position tucked into the hillside of Pentons Hill, a short walk from the open spaces of picturesque Hyde Common. Frogham is one of several peaceful hamlets and villages located in the uppermost north western corner of the New Forest National Park, where ponies and donkeys frequent the village lanes and open forest. There is a popular public house and village hall within Frogham, whilst Hyde has a highly regarded primary school, garden shop and The Potting Shed cafe, all of which are within walking distance. The Avonside towns of Fordingbridge (approx. 1.5 miles) and Ringwood (approx. 6 miles) have an excellent range of local shops, health centres and reputable state primary and secondary schools, with Moyles Court and Forres Sandle Manor serving the private sector.
For those seeking a balance between a 'work-from-home' and office-based environment, communications in the area are excellent. The local road network, including the A338 and A36, draws the regional centres of Salisbury, Bournemouth and Southampton within striking distance. There are mainline rail services from Salisbury and Southampton Parkway (90 minutes and 71 minutes respectively) to London Waterloo and international airports at Southampton and Bournemouth.
Those seeking outdoor pursuits will undoubtedly be satisfied by the wonderful location and the glorious walking, riding and cycling countryside virtually on the door step. There is a choice of local golf and angling clubs in the vicinity and sailing opportunities abound on the South Coast and at Spinnaker Sailing Club at Blashford Lakes, near Ringwood.
To the front of the double garage a driveway approached via a cattle grid provides parking for two vehicles. A pedestrian gate inset to a surrounding picket fence provides access to the property and gardens, which are predominantly situated to the rear and side.
The hillside gardens are an undoubted feature of the property and incorporate two tiers of manicured, level lawn with well-stocked shrub and flower beds that are linked by wide stone steps and a series of raised, rockery style beds. Each tier has a patio/terrace area for seating and al fresco dining and entertaining and there is a particularly fine outlook from the upper section of garden in the direction of Frogham Hill. On the southerly side of the property is a delightful, sheltered courtyard patio, which can be accessed from the kitchen and principal bedroom, and which serves as a sheltered sun trap.
