4 Bedroom Detached House Sold
An attractive 4-bedroom house dating from 1917 requiring modernisation, occupying an excellent position alongside the open spaces of the Village Common.
Springfield House is an appealing detached house of attractive red brick elevation believed to date from 1917, with later additions, that sits in an overall plot of 0.17 acre. The house occupies an excellent position alongside the village common, which ultimately supplies access to a bridleway and footpath into the surrounding countryside and is also within close walking distance of the village shop. Offering a traditional layout that includes two principal reception rooms and four double bedrooms, the period origins of the house are evidenced by the presence of features such as fireplaces in many of the rooms, panelled internal doors and picture rails. Whilst it has been comfortably maintained, the house would now benefit from updating and modernisation and is a wonderful opportunity for an incoming owner to enhance a superb family home.

Springfield House is located in the centre of the village, with the open space of the village Common virtually on the door step. Sandleheath is a thriving community home to a shop and sub-Post Office, village hall, a church, tennis club and scout hall. The Avonside town of Fordingbridge (approximately 1 1/2 miles) offers a wider range of shops,, a building society, a library and an excellent health centre. The local area is blessed with reputable schools within both the state and private sectors; Western Downland at Rockbourne and Damerham, Fordingbridge Infant and Junior School, Burgate Secondary and Sixth Form and Forres Sandle Manor and a school bus serving the Fordingbridge schools runs through the village. The local road network supplies convenient access to the regional employment and commercial centres of Salisbury, Bournemouth and Southampton; all provide mainline links to London and there are airports at the latter two. The surrounding countryside provides myriad walking, riding and cycling opportunities via a number of paths and bridle ways, whilst the New Forest National Park lies approximately 3 miles to the East.
A shared, private gravel driveway leads to a detached DOUBLE GARAGE (19' 9 x 19' 6) with twin up-and-over doors, power and light connected with an area of concrete hard standing for parking alongside. There are two gated access points from the driveway to the house and garden, with a further pedestrian access inset to the hedged roadside boundary that supplies access to the entrance porch.
The GARDEN is located primarily to the south and west sides of the house and benefits from a sunny orientation, being laid to lawn with planting and shrubs to the borders. A paved terrace adjoining the Garden Room on the southerly elevation is the ideal spot for a table and chairs and al fresco dining.
