Enjoying a beautiful location on the banks of the River Avon, this historic property also benefits from being in the heart of the popular village of Downton which is located on the edge of the New Forest and approximately 8 miles from Salisbury. The village provides an excellent range of day to day facilities which include a Coop, post office, butchers, gift shop, café, library, pharmacy, a doctor's surgery and a dentist. There are also over 32 clubs and societies. The Cathedral City of Salisbury offers a wide range of cultural shopping and entertainment facilities including several theatres, a cinema and a City Hall. The New Forest National Park provides a wonderful variety of leisure activities which include walking and riding.

The local Downtown CofE Primary School is rated as 'Outstanding' by Ofsted, while The Trafalgar School at Downtown is also wellregarded. Salisbury offers very good Grammar Schools for both girls and boys.

Nearby Salisbury has a mainline railway station with direct trains to London Waterloo (90mins). Communications are excellent with the nearby A36 provides access to London airports and the national motorway network via the M27 and M3.

The property benefits from an integrated single garage, with one off-street parking space in front. The property also owns the rights to a parking area located in front of some nearby cottages. At the rear of the property a landscaped garden overlooks the river, and meadows on the opposite bank. A bridge leads from the main garden across to a private island. The garden seamlessly blends with the surrounding countryside, and there are

opportunities for riverbank fishing from right outside the property.
