NO FORWARD CHAIN - A stunning period home ideally situated in the pretty village of Breamore, with superb views over the adjacent water meadows. Willow and Marshgate is a Grade II listed property which was originally four cottages dating back to the 17th century. The property has recently undergone extensive renovation to create a stunning family home finished to a very high standard whilst still retaining many of the original features.

The cottage is conveniently located in the idyllic rural village of Breamore, which has its own popular local pub, and delightful primary school, with the secondary school nearby at Burgate. Other highly regarded schools within the locality include; Trafalgar School, Hampshire Collegiate School, Chafyn Grove, Salisbury Cathedral School, South Wilts Grammar School for Girls, Godolphin and Bishop Wordsworths. The historic city of Salisbury is approximately 8 miles north via the easily accessible A338, offering a wonderful array of high street and independent shops, cafes and restaurants, and the charming market town of Ringwood is just 8 miles south. The surrounding New Forest is a beautiful, renowned National Park consisting of approximately 140,000 aces of natural Heath and woodland ideal for walking, cycling and particularly riding for the equestrian enthusiast.

The front door opens on to a light entrance hall with a Victorian fireplace. The cosy kitchen is the heart of this pretty home. The twin burner Rayburn is a range oven and also fires the hot water and central heating systems. The solid oak floor, handbuilt kitchen and Belfast sink add further character to this room. A pantry/utility room leads through to a downstairs shower room.

A further feature room of this house is the sitting room. Central to this room is an impressive inglenook fireplace with a recently installed Clearview wood burning stove and original bread oven. A quirky addition, installed recently by Dalbergia Cabinetmakers of Fordingbridge, is a hidden cupboard cleverly built to look like a book case. The study has been fitted with a handmade desk and shleving, also by Dalbergia, and boasts beautiful views over the marsh. The back door opens on to a boot room with flagstone floors and plenty of hanging space.

In the south wing of the property there is a particularly light and airy dining room for a property of this age, looking upon the pretty garden and over to the rolling countryside beyond. A downstairs family bathroom, serving bedrooms three and four, complete with central egg-shaped bath and underfloor heating, completes the accommodation on the ground floor.

On the first floor, there is a dual aspect master bedroom with a walk-in wardrobe, four further bedrooms and a family bathroom. All the bedrooms have good ceiling heights and wonderful views.

Willow and Marshgate is situated in the centre of the pretty and private 1.46 acre plot. The property is approached through a wooden gate to a gravelled area with ample parking in front of a double garage with adjoining wood store. The garden is largely laid to lawn, bordered by established trees and shrubs providing the perfect space to entertain or children to play. To the rear of the house is a large south-westerly facing terrace that makes the most of the afternoon and evening sun. Part of the garden has recently been planted to create an orchard with a variety of fruit trees, including apples, pears, mulberries, walnuts and gooseberries. To the rear of the garden is a wooden garden shed.

Please note: the shepherds hut is excluded from the sale.
