Sandleheath is a thriving community home to a shop and sub-Post Office, village hall, a church, tennis club and scout hall, whilst Rockbourne is home to a popular public house and reputable primary school (Western Downland).

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; as well as the aforementioned Western Downland, Fordingbridge Infant and Junior School, Burgate Secondary and Sixth Form and Forres Sandle Manor are in the vicinity.

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.

The property is approached from Rockbourne Road via a 5 bar wooden gate that opens to a generous driveway that leads to the barn and adjoining yard where there is ample parking and turning space for a number of vehicles, including horse boxes.

The well tended garden is located primarily to the rear of the house where there is a generous brick terrace with steps down to a stone patio, both ideal for al fresco dining/entertaining and blessed with a lovely outlook over adjoining paddock. Beyond the patio is a large expanse of lawn sporadically interspersed by mature trees including an impressive oak and a number of raised vegetable beds. The lawn runs to the side of the house where there is a private section of garden serving the annexe which can be accessed from the principal garden or front of the house.
