Located towards the end of a no-through road, Shelwood is an attractive, cottage-like detached 1930s bungalow, recently extended to provide comfortable four-bedroom, 2 bathroom accommodation.

The property is nearing the end of an extensive programme of renovation and updating, which includes the addition of a fantastic, double aspect, open plan living room/family room/kitchen: the kitchen itself is fitted with a superb range of high end cabinetry, built-in appliances (double oven and hob with hood, fridge-freezer, dishwasher) work surfaces and an island incorporating a breakfast bar. The utility room has matching cabinetry and space for laundry appliances.

Further works have included complete re-wiring as well as complete re-plumbing and the installation of a new Worcester-Bosch gas-fired boiler, full double glazing (including patio doors) off the living area on to a large 3.5 metre decked terrace and the re-fitting of the family bathroom, ensuite and utility room.

Shelwood has a private drive which extends to the side of the bungalow with excellent parking. To the front of the house there is security lighting with camera which can be viewed on a smartphone or tablet. The front garden is fully enclosed by a mature hedge and the rear garden is an excellent size, fully enclosed with a sunny aspect; presently there is a large shrub bed to one side, extending the length of the garden, and a footpath. The rest of the garden will be levelled and prepared for turfing.

The village of Alderbury is situated approximately three miles to the south east of the cathedral city of Salisbury, to the east of the River Avon and is on the edge of the New Forest. Local facilities include a village hall, a primary school, two shops (one of which is a post office), two public houses and tennis and football clubs. Salisbury offers a comprehensive range of shopping, recreational, cultural, educational and medical amenities including a theatre, cinema and arts centre. Salisbury's mainline station serves London (Waterloo, journey time approximately 90 minutes) and the West Country and there are good road links to Southampton (27 miles) and Eastleigh Airport via the A36 and the M27 and London via the M3.
