A beautifully presented, extended period cottage set in approximately 1/2 acre of delightful landscaped gardens adjoining woodland, discreetly located a short walk from the town centre.

A charming period house that historically served as part of neighbouring Parsonage Farmhouse set in stunning, verdant gardens of approximately 1/2 acre, discreetly located a short level walk from the town centre. The current owners have significantly improved the house during their time in residence and secured planning permission in 2020 for an extension that enlarged the sitting room, creating a generously propertioned reception space that enjoys a good level of natural light and outlook over the wonderful garden to the south. The remaining accommodation is flexible, with two bedrooms on the first floor and the option for a further two bedrooms (one currently employed as a study) on the ground floor, including the principal bedroom that benefits from en suite facilities. The breath-taking gardens surround the house on three elevations and have been carefully landscaped to blend areas of formal and natural garden, the latter to encourage local wildlife.

The property is discreetly yet conveniently located along the gravelled section of Green Lane, within level walking distance of the town centre where an array of shops, a cinema, a selection of pubs and restaurants, a library, a building society and medical centre are located. There is reputable primary schooling at Fordingbridge Infant & Junior School and Burgate Secondary School, which are again both within walking distance. Sporting and recreational needs are well served by Fordingbridge Recreation Ground and Sports Club located on the banks of the River Avon, which is home to rugby and football teams.

Communications in the area are good with convenient road access to the regional centres of Salisbury, Bournemouth and Southampton, all of which can provide a more comprehensive range of amenities. The regular X3 bus service serving Salisbury and Bournemouth stops at various points within the town whilst mainline rail services to London (Waterloo) are available from Southampton Parkway and Salisbury. There are airports at Southampton and Bournemouth. For the outdoor enthusiast the New Forest is close at hand, its thousands of acres of heath and woodland providing glorious walking and riding country, whilst water sports opportunities abound on the South Coast.

From the gravelled approach track a set of wooden gates open to a gravelled driveway to the front and side of the house providing turning and parking space. A second set of gates open to a second driveway to the rear of the house, which provides further parking and leads to the SINGLE GARAGE.

The enchanting gardens are an undoubted highlight of the property. Extending to approximately 1/2 acre and surrounding the house on three elevations, the garden has been a passion for the current owners, who have considerately and extensively landscaped it into distinct areas, each with its own character and sensibility. Flanking the driveway to the front elevation is an area of ‘wild meadow’ grass designed to attract insect and wildlife, alongside which is a chicken enclosure.

The ‘meadow’ gives way to an area of more manicured lawn that continues to the side elevation via an attractive rose clad arch alongside a good sized patio that in turn leads to an elevated, south-facing terrace that can be accessed via the sitting room and which is a lovely, sunny vantage point to enjoy the garden.
The lawn is interspersed with a selection of maturing trees, providing a welcome combination of sunlight and shade. The garden continues away from the house in a southerly direction to a lovely, shaded glade where the grass has again been encouraged to grow to provide a habitat for local wildlife. A series of mown pathways lead to an attractive pond with a verdant, wooded backdrop. To the rear of the house is a high quality greenhouse on a brick base and an enclosed kitchen garden with a flourishing vegetable garden and potting/display area and there is a wood shed and garden shed.
