Upon entering the property through a good size porch, the welcoming entrance hall leads to the open plan family room/dining room, sitting room, cloakroom WC and study room and stairs leading to the first floor.

The family room/dining room which was added in 2018 sits the full width of the property and enjoys the south-easterly aspect with views across adjoining paddocks and direct access to the private garden.

The kitchen is of good proportions with a partially wood and tiled flooring and was extended in 2009 giving further storage and work surfaces. The kitchen has both a gas fired Aga plus separate gas hob, double butler sink, space for dishwasher, space for under worktop fridge/freezer and a stable door with access to the front driveway. A useful utility providing storage for coats and shoes, a further butler sink and housing the gas boiler plus cloakroom WC is located off the rear of the kitchen.

The lounge sits off the family/dining room through double doors and gives views to the stables to the side of the property and a wood burner for those winters evenings.

A good size study with decorative fireplace and further cloakroom WC with wash basin completes the ground floor.

Upstairs on the first floor are three good size bedrooms, each with a decorative fireplace and an en-suite shower room with WC and wash hand basin complements the principal bedroom.

All bedrooms are light and airy and of good proportions with fitted wardrobes and views across the adjoining paddocks. Off the hallway is situated a useful walk-in airing cupboard with built in wardrobes, additional cupboard space and hot water tank.

The family bathroom completes the first floor accommodation with two piece suite consisting of show cubicle and original freestanding bath and there is a separate WC with hand wash basin.

The second floor has two further good size bedrooms with elevated views to the Isle of wight and Sway Water Tower. A walk-in storage cupboard sits between the fourth bedroom and generous landing with further fitted cupboards.

The property enjoys a lovely semi rural setting with lovely views across the gardens to fields beyond. The village of Hordle is a close neighbour of the small and busy town of New Milton to the west, and the popular Georgian market town of Lymington to the east.

A general store is complimented by a selection of further shops on Stopples Lane, two local pubs and an ‘Ofsted’ outstanding Hordle Primary School. For leisure activities, the choice of wonderful coastal walks at Milford on Sea is matched by the New Forest, which provides an area of outstanding natural beauty with ancient woods and heathland enjoyed by riders and walkers alike.

A total of four acres incorporating five paddocks, two stables, barn and two field shelters all in very good condition with post and rail fencing. Superb mature garden with hedge boarders gives plenty of privacy and a wonderful vegetable patch with greenhouse. Double garage with off road parking for several vehicles.

Living in Hordle

Hordle is a little known gem of a village: a scattered settlement that is perfectly situated between the New Forest and the coast, west of Lymington. The parish of Hordle also includes the villages of Tiptoe and Everton and part of the hamlet of Downton.

Hordle is a popular destination for home hunters. Families are attracted by the village primary school and nursery that is consistently rated ‘Outstanding’ by OFSTED and described as ‘a happy school where everyone smiles’. Business people like its situation between two mainline stations at New Milton and Sway. Retirees are drawn to the range of useful facilities, among them good country pubs (such as The Crown at Everton), local shops (including a co-op, garage, hair salon, pet store and pharmacy), and strong community spirit. Sports pavilions and recreation grounds at Hordle and Everton provide local hubs with activities ranging from cricket to football, gardening to yoga, and walking to wine appreciation groups.

Property provides something for most house hunters, including old thatch cottages, farmhouses, stylish new builds and grand country houses. However, the area mostly comprises quiet leafy roads of chalet bungalows and family homes built from the mid-century onwards, and edged by a countryside of field and woodland with that easy access to open Forest and the Solent.
