Discreetly positioned within the highly sought after New Forest village of Hyde is Honeysuckle Cottage, a quintessential, yet deceptively spacious cottage offering an abundance of flexible accommodation. Dating back to 1820, this glorious family home is an original Cob cottage boasting charming character features. The current owners have meticulously cared for the property over the years and have carried out a programme of careful modernisation and expansion maintaining the highest standard of finish throughout. The accommodation is arranged over two floors and consists of a sizeable, split level open plan kitchen/dining room. The lovely kitchen boasts a light and airy ambience and is fitted with a range of eye and base level units with solid wood work surfaces, slate floor, exposed wooden beams and French doors leading to the front garden. Steps lead down from the kitchen area to the spacious dining room that has dual aspect windows and boasts an abundance of light. The sitting room is accessed through the dining room and is also dual aspect with a lovely feature wood burning stove and a traditional cottage style wooden door. Concluding the ground floor is an entrance hall and versatile garden room with period beams and French doors leading to the garden that could be a super study/playroom. There are three sizeable bedrooms found on the first floor, the master bedroom benefits from a contemporary en-suite shower room whilst a stylish family bathroom services the remaining bedrooms.
Detached from the house is a useful brick and timber constructed cabin ideal for use as a home office or additional accommodation and is the ideal entertaining space. The cabin is complete with a large triple aspect reception room complete with feature log burner, kitchenette area, wet room, and storage on the first floor.
Houses of this calibre and of this location are rare and we highly recommend a viewing of this charming family home to fully appreciate the scope of the accommodation on offer.
The cottage is situated in the village of Hyde in the New Forest National Park, famed for its wonderful walking and riding country. Within the village there is a garden shop/general store, as well as a superb primary school (Ofsted Good 2014) and two wonderful pubs within walking distance. Nearby is Fordingbridge, a small market town, which has a post office, a number of banks and a variety of other shops. Shopping centres and a wider range of amenities are available a short drive away in the cathedral city of Salisbury to the north and Bournemouth to the south. As well as the leisure opportunities in the New Forest, the property benefits from easy access to Poole, Christchurch and the Solent ports for sailing and water sports. There are numerous good schools nearby including the prep school Forres Sandle Manor and Moyles Court. An excellent range of schools in both the public and private sector are located nearby in Salisbury. Hyde is also very well placed for commuting to the business centres in Salisbury, Southampton and Bournemouth, all with good train services to London Waterloo (Soton Parkway 68 minutes).
The property is approached via a gravelled driveway leading to an ample parking area for several vehicles. The gardens are arranged into two principal areas. There is a formal garden area adjacent to the right of the home with a gravelled and paved area perfect for al-fresco entertaining. This leads to a large area of lawn which has been planted with pretty flora and shrub borders with the opportunity to be further landscaped and post and rail fencing and mature hedged boundaries providing a degree of privacy. There is also a vegetable patch, log store, timber shed and cabin to the rear of the garden with scope to build a garage, subject to usual planning consents. There is access on each side of the home. To the left of the property is a paddock area laid to lawn with a small stream running through. In all the gardens amount to just over a third of an acre.
