An idyllically positioned modern country home with separate annex in a highly sought after New Forest National Park Hamlet.
Occupying a commanding elevated position on the north west fringes of the New Forest the house boasts arguably one of the best views across open forest.
The home itself was constructed some 18 years ago by the current owners and sits amidst landscaped gardens, grounds and a paddock amounting to approximately 2.5 acres.
Upon entering the home, the quality and attention to detail is immediately apparent. Incorporating both style and functionality, the accommodation flows wonderfully and has been designed so that all principal rooms take advantage of both natural light and spectacular views of the gardens and the New Forest beyond.
The highlights of the accommodation include a wonderful open plan sitting and dining room with fireplace and doors directly onto the gardens. It makes for a wonderful entertaining space. The kitchen boasts excellent storage and an AGA with a sizeable utility room. Both the kitchen and utility room enjoy direct access to the gardens at the side, ideal for coming back from country walks.
The first floor has two bedroom suites and two further bedrooms and a family bathroom. Again, cleverly designed so all bedrooms take advantage of the extensive views from the first floor. The master bedroom has a spacious walk-in wardrobe and all three further bedrooms have built-in cupboards.
A particular feature of this impressive home is the separate ancillary accommodation. Currently designed as a one bedroom suite with sitting area and a separate studio used as a home office with shower room, but with flexibility to suit an incoming purchasers requirements.
The home is situated in the much sought after Hamlet of Frogham, idyllically and conveniently found on the north westerly edge of the New Forest National Park, famed for its wonderful walking and riding country. Within walking distance is the village centre including the reputable Foresters Arms public house and a village hall. The neighbouring village Hyde has a highly regarded primary school and popular garden centre with tea rooms. Nearby is Fordingbridge, a small market town, which has a post office, grocers, butchers, doctors surgery, cottage hospital, dentist 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).
Meadow Pipit really is all about its spectacular position. The house and annex sit centrally in the more formal gardens and are approached via a gated and gravelled driveway with parking for several cars with a paved pathway down to the house. The gardens are largely laid to lawn and enjoy mature tree and shrub planting. Lawns roll down to the paddock adjoining the house and of course all enjoying the open views beyond.
There is a lovely paved terrace directly accessible from the kitchen with an arbour above making for a rather special spot to enjoy outside dining.
