2 Bedroom Flat For Sale
An elegant 2-bedroom ground floor apartment with private garden forming part of a beautiful country house conversion. SHARE OF FREEHOLD. NO ONWARD CHAIN.
Highfield Hall is a fine example of a Victorian country house built in 1866 by Josiah Reynolds Neave, a member of a local Quaker family who did much to expand the family milling business, one of the major employers in Fordingbridge at the time. Highfield Hall later served as a cottage hospital in 1948 and then a private nursing home which was sold and converted into 8 apartments and 1 maisonette in 2002. The building underwent a major refurbishment in 2016 with the roofs being replaced at that time. Number 1 is located on the ground floor with access from the
main entrance hall and a private pedestrian gate leading into the attractive, private garden. The accommodation is extremely well appointed with spacious, elegant rooms that uniformly benefit from gracious ceiling heights and features such as the ground floor portion of a hexagonal turret that forms part of the impressive master bedroom. Further benefits of the apartment include an entry phone system, an allocated parking space directly to the front of the Hall and use of the lovely parkland style communal gardens.

International airports are at Southampton and Bournemouth. Situated on the fringe of the New Forest National Park, Fordingbridge is the ideal stepping stone for further exploration of the thousands of acres of heath and woodland the forest has to offer.
