To the north of the house lies a small park surrounding Ballard Lake and approximately a mile further north are the open spaces of the New Forest, with Barton-on-Sea’s superb clifftop walk and beach just a mile to the south. The beautiful, sandy beaches of Highcliffe are 3.5 miles away. There is also a superb choice of sailing facilities at Mudeford, Christchurch and Lymington.

A light oak floor runs throughout the property and large windows flood the main reception areas with light. The kitchen, which has been recently refitted with high-gloss fronted units, has space for a double American-style fridge/freezer and a Rangemaster stove. There is also space to dine and the room has a glazed “conservatory” styled addition with doors to the garden. The sitting room has a double height ceiling with exposed beams and impressive floor to ceiling windows on the east and west elevations, which flood the room with light. There is a large wood burning stove which lends a cosy atmosphere to the sitting room, beyond which lies a dining area with French windows to the garden. From here, stairs lead to a mezzanine floor which overlooks the sitting room. These stairs also access a bedroom with a recently refitted en suite. The ground floor leads to a hallway with a cloakroom and utility area as well as further stairs to the first floor.
The master bedroom overlooks the garden and has a range of fitted wardrobes and an en suite bathroom. On the first floor there is another double bedroom with a newly fitted en suite bathroom and also a further occasional bedroom/office.
The property is approached through remotely operated electric gates leading to a block paved driveway where the house has two parking spaces and a car port.
