Presented to the market for the first time since being redeveloped is a millennial Grand Designs-esque 6 bedroom detached residence situated in one of the New Forest's blue chip locations. The original part of this home was built over 200 years ago, of which the current owners have sympathetically extended; creating a wonderful mixture of period and modern, hence the formation of two staircases and wings provides a great opportunity for multi – generational living as well as ample space to work from home. The property is perfectly situated in its completely private and manicured gardens with direct forest access on the edge of this quintessential New Forest village with its very own pub within a short walk. In our opinion, the property offers some of the most expansive and far reaching north Forest views locally that we have seen.

This desirable home is situated in the beautiful village of Frogham, which is located in the parish of Hyde and is only 1.3 miles from the town of Fordingbridge. The market town of Ringwood is a short drive away, offering a superb range of shops, Waitrose, boutiques cafes and restaurants as well as good access via the A31 to both Bournemouth and Southampton. The village of Frogham forms part of the New Forest National Park, which offers 140,000 acres of open heath and woodland; perfect for outdoor pursuits including walking, riding and has the convenience of a quality local pub, the Forester's Arms. The sailing waters of Lymington and Beaulieu are within easy access and boast delightful Quays and Marinas. The larger city of Salisbury is approximately 8 miles away, offering a mainline railway station running to London Waterloo in just under 90 minutes. There are excellent schools, both state and private, in the area.
