Stocks Cottage is found in the picturesque village of Damerham, much of which is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Amenities-wise the village can provide a Public House/Inn, Church and Primary School, whilst the nearby Avonside town of Fordingbridge (about 4 miles) has the facilities to cater for most everyday needs, including well respected Primary and Secondary schools. Furthermore, the property is well placed for access to the regional centres in the area. Salisbury, Bournemouth, Southampton and Winchester are all within convenient driving distance; all can supply mainline rail services to London Waterloo. For the outdoor enthusiast, a number of bridleways and footpaths exist in and around Damerham, whilst the New Forest, with its thousands of acres of walking and riding country, lies about 6 miles to the East.
Stocks Cottage is approached through a set of high double wooden gates, over a gravel driveway that provides parking for numerous cars and leads to the DETACHED DOUBLE GARAGE ideal for the car enthusiast having an inspection pit and newly istalled LED lighting and some fitted shelving.
The GARDEN is a feature of the property and extends to about 1/2 an acre. Immediately adjoining the house is a large paved terrace with a well with pump and water feature, and pillar lighting. Beyond this the gardens are principally laid to lawn with a very attractive pond. The whole is enclosed by mature hedging and fencing with a number of mature trees and shrubs . The garden adjoins the Allen River at the rear boundary, which is fenced.
The LODGE which is immediately adjacent has recently been run as a successful holiday let but could equally provide ancillary accommodation or office/studio space.
