Bedrooms: 3
A spacious period cottage set in approximately an acre of grounds, situated in a stunning and sought after New Forest setting with beautiful far reaching views. The property retains much of its original character including open fireplaces, some original oak beams and exposed floorboards. It has been sympathetically extended to offer spacious accommodation, including; three double bedrooms, three bath/shower rooms, an open plan kitchen/dining room, living room and ‘Van Duke' conservatory. There is further scope to extend this property and previously had planning for a two storey extension which has now expired (original plans available to view on request). In addition, this individual home comprises a large parking forecourt and a triple garage complex with studio space above which could be utilised as additional accommodation and also including a separate building used as a home office/studio.

The cottage is situated in an enviable position in the peaceful Hamlet of North Gorley, within the north-part of the magnificent New Forest National Park; offering thousands of acres of woodland and heathland ideal for outdoor pursuits, particularly horse riding. There is a superb farm-shop and excellent country pub within walking distance. The town of Fordingbridge is conveniently just 2 miles away offering a good range of shops, and the larger market town of Ringwood is approximately 5 miles away, comprising a wide variety of shops, cafes, restaurants and leisure facilities; both towns offer excellent schooling. For commuters, the easily accessible A338 provides direct links to the historic city of Salisbury, approximately 10 miles north, and the larger coastal towns of Bournemouth and Christchurch, approximately 12 miles south. The A31 links to the M27 to Southampton (approx. 20 miles east).
