Situated in an enviable position on a quiet cul de sac within the desirable village of Downton is this well presented five bedroom home. The property is an ideal family home, practical and light with generous parking. In addition, there is a large double garage and private gardens with a plot extending to in excess of 1/4 acre providing a perfect south facing venue for relaxing or entertaining. The property is in close proximity to excellent local schooling and traditional village amenities, on the fringes of the New Forest National Park.


A large hallway with attractive ceramic tiled flooring leads to the principal reception rooms in addition to the cloakroom and cloaks cupboard. The triple aspect sitting room is beautifully bright, displaying a feature fireplace with wood burning stove. The kitchen breakfast room features an excellent range of cream coloured eye and base level units complemented by wooden worktops with the centre island hosting a breakfast bar. Integrated appliances include a Bosch dishwasher, cooker hood and there is space for a range oven. The kitchen is the hub of the home and is supplemented by a useful utility room with space and plumbing for further appliances. From the kitchen there is a door to the generous dual aspect dining room with access via double glazed French doors and attractive views over the gardens.

The staircase leads to the first floor landing which is very generous in size and much light is afforded from Georgian style windows. The master bedroom suite is impressive in size featuring extensive fitted wardrobes with ensuite facilities. The family bathroom serves the remaining four bedrooms, also all with fitted wardrobes.


The property is approached by an extensive gravel driveway with ample parking and turning area leading to a double garage and is enclosed by a beech and laurel hedge. A side gate leads to the established rear garden which is mainly laid to lawn and is fully enclosed by panel fencing with established mature trees providing excellent privacy.


Downton is a thriving village with a long-standing community with a strong sense of identity. There are good local facilities in the village which include shops, doctors, dentist, tennis club, the Borough Cafe, churches, schools and four popular public houses, as well as the famous Cuckoo Fair held each May. There is easy access to the main regional centres of Salisbury and the B3078 gives access to the M27, thus Southampton and the M3 corridor. The wide ranging opportunities of the New Forest are only two miles from the village. There is first class schooling in the village with its own primary and secondary school. In the state sector, Salisbury has retained its grammar school status (Bishops for boys and South Wilts for girls) which offer excellent Ofsted statistics.


Upon reaching Downton, turn right into The Borough signposted B3060 and continue up towards Lode Hill. Turn right a Moot Lane and take the first left directly opposite the Doctors Surgery into Saxonhurst.
