The property is situated in the village of Hordle and epitomises the peace and tranquillity of the New Forest. Hordle, is a semi-rural village between Lymington, a popular market town famed for its river and marinas and New Milton which offers comprehensive leisure and shopping facilities with excellent schools nearby. To the north east is the New Forest village of Brockenhurst which has a mainline railway station providing a half hourly service to London Waterloo with a journey time of approximately 90 minutes.
The house sits on a wide, quarter acre, south facing site, which requires landscaping. Access is via a five bar gate with the house slightly offset in its pot allowing for vehicle access down the left hand side. There is a gravel frontage behind high mature bushes which offers privacy from the main road. A right hand side lean to offers the prospect of a garage or car port. The rear of the plot is shielded by mature trees and there is evidence of a historic pond.
The front door opens in to a central hallway with twin reception rooms positioned either side of the staircase. The lounge and dining room both have open fireplaces and wooden sash windows. The kitchen, at the end of the hall, over looks the rear garden with a range of dated work tops and cupboards, one which houses a modern gas boiler. A rear door opens in to a lean to with downstairs cloak room and a spacious utility room. The whole of the rear of the house would benefit from a two story extension. The stairs rise to the first floor landing with two double bedrooms positioned above the ground floor reception rooms. The original third bedroom has been divided into two to create a enclosed shower room and a separate bathroom with south facing window. Overall the property requires considerable improvement but offers a great opportunity to create a spacious family home on a lovely sized plot.
