The west facing property is located in a most attractive rural position within the New Forest National Park occupying a prominent position overlooking the green and giving easy access to the thousands of acres of heath and woodland of the New Forest, ideal for the nature or outdoor enthusiast for walking, running, cycling or horse riding.

The area:

The popular village of South Gorley is well connected. There is an excellent farm shop and café with the neighbouring village of North Gorley having a public house. Fordingbridge provides further local facilities including a variety of independent shops and eateries, a building society, medical centre, public library and churches of various denominations. The nearby village of Hyde has a primary school, a feeder school to The Burgate School and Sixth Form in Fordingbridge. The area is well connected with easy access to a number of important centres, Salisbury is 12 miles to the north and Ringwood and Bournemouth, with its beaches, 4 and 17 miles respectively to the south. Southampton is some 18 miles.

The property:

The attractive property was, we believe, built in the mid 19th century. I was extended by the current owner in the 1970s. Now in need of extensive renovation and modernisation. There is evidence of some historic settlement. There is also damp penetration to the front of the property that can, we understand, be rectified by the removal of the red covering and replacing with lime render. The property offers the opportunity to create a stunning home in a sought after location. For planning enquiries within the National Park: 01590  646615 or
