Highfield Hall enjoys a delightful rural location approximately a mile or so west of the town of Fordingbridge. Highfield Hall is approached through an impressive gated entrance and stands in delightful parkland surroundings of approximately 3.75 acres with many mature indigenous trees.
A sweeping gravelled drive flanked by lawns with mature trees leads up to the building. There are allocated parking spaces for each apartment together with a generous number of visitor spaces. The extensive gardens & communal grounds extend to about 3.75 acres. Nearby Fordingbridge provides excellent local facilities including a variety of independent shops and eateries, a building society, public library and churches of various denominations. There is a medical centre together with Infant, junior & The Burgate school and sixth form centre. The town, which lies on the banks of the River Avon, is within a short distance of the New Forest Park boundary, provides easy access to a number of important centres. Salisbury is some 11 miles to the north (where there is a mainline rail station to London Waterloo approximately 100 minutes), Ringwood and Bournemouth are some 6 and 18 miles respectively to the south, and Jct 1 of the M27 can be reached at Cadnam, approximately 10 miles to the south east via the B3078.
Highfield Hall is a fine example of a Victorian residence built by Josiah Reynolds Neave during the mid 19th Century, a member of a local Quaker family who did much to expand the family milling business, one of the major employers in Fordingbridge which benefited greatly from the arrival of the railway in the mid1860s. Highfield Hall later became a cottage hospital in 1948 and then a private nursing home which was sold and converted into apartments in 2002.
