An elegant first floor apartment of approx. 1200 sq. ft. forming part of a converted Victorian mansion set in gated parkland grounds on the outskirts of the town. Share of freehold & NO ONWARD CHAIN.

Believed to have been built in 1857 as the private residence of local milling magnate Josiah Reynolds Neave, Highfield Hall is a striking example of Victorian architecture. The hall has experienced a varied history, being converted firstly into a cottage hospital in 1948 and converted again during the mid-1990s into the luxury apartments of today. The accommodation is spacious and elegant, with high ceilings throughout and the conversion sensitively retained a number of prominent features, such as the large arched windows of the well proportioned sitting room. No. 4 also benefits from a separate dining room/study, two double bedrooms (the principal with an en suite shower room), a kitchen with fitted appliances and a welcoming entrance hall. Externally, there is an allocated parking space and well maintained parkland style communal grounds behind the security of a privately controlled gate.

Highfield Hall occupies a private, elevated setting on the semi-rural, south westerly outskirts of Fordingbridge, close to open countryside but equally convenient for the town’s amenities, which include an array of shops, a cinema, a selection of pubs and restaurants, a library, a building society and health centre. 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. There is reputable primary schooling at Fordingbridge Infant & Junior School and Burgate Secondary School.

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 in 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.

A secure gated entrance opens to a gravel drive that passes through the parkland-style grounds, providing ample parking and turning space for both owners and visitors, with a specifically allocated car parking space for all apartments.

New Forest District Council. Tax Band D.

Mains water, electricity and drainage. LPG gas fired central heating via boiler located in the kitchen.

We understand the current half yearly maintenance charge is £2,016.00 (October ’23—March ’24).

From Fordingbridge High Street proceed in a southerly direction bearing left into Provost Street, pass over the river bridge where the road then becomes Church Street and thereafter Bowerwood Road. Continue along this road some distance and just after where the road narrows considerably at the brow of the hill, Highfield Hall will be seen on the left hand side.
