Thought to be the Dower House for the nearby Hamptworth Lodge, Langley Wood House was completely rebuilt in the early 20th century. Constructed of flint and red brick under a slate tile roof, it is typical of properties in this area. This handsome home has well-proportioned rooms, good ceiling height throughout and functional utilitarian space which makes for flexible accommodation to suit the needs of modern day family life.

The ground floor flows extremely well with the central entrance hall being the heart of the home with impressive Jacobean style panelling and a wide sweeping staircase. The hall opens up into the main reception rooms and kitchen/breakfast room. The drawing room is of a good size with south and westerly facing views across the gardens and with a large red brick fireplace. Further reception rooms on this floor include a dining room and sitting room, both of which are south facing and look out to the garden at the front of the house.

The kitchen/breakfast room is light and airy with two large skylight windows and an easterly facing window onto the woodland beyond. Fitted wooden units and a large Welsh dresser offer ample storage and a gas fired Rangemaster cooker and central island make for a functional kitchen with a back utility and the potential to create a walk in pantry/larder from the existing back office, as this room is north facing and would be particularly cool.

Previously used as a bed and breakfast, Langley Wood House offers generous upstairs accommodation. The are seven bedrooms all of which are spacious and have en-suite bathrooms. There are three staircases leading to the first floor which not only makes for a functional flow to the house, but also offers the potential to separate a bedroom should you need accommodation for staff. The seventh bedroom is located on the ground floor with a wet room which has been fitted to suit disabled needs and can be easily accessed from the front door

Positioned well within its grounds, Langley Wood House has an impressive presence with a symmetrical façade. The house is situated next to a Site of Special Scientific Interest and lies within the New Forest National Park.

The larger village of Downton is just over three miles away which caters for further everyday needs and offers a wonderful selection of shops and services including a Co-op, post office, bakery, library, village hall, church, several public houses, dentist and doctors' surgeries and a coffee shop, to name but a few. A more extensive range of facilities is available in the nearby cathedral city of Salisbury.

There is a double garage with electric doors and two additional garden stores which could also be used as outdoor dog kennelling as there is a dog run in situ. There are two additional sheds on the eastern edge of the property and a larger outbuilding which houses the biomass boiler system.

The garden is mainly laid to lawn with established fruit trees and flower beds. Surrounding the perimeter of the lawn to the rear of the house is woodland made up of a mixture of deciduous trees which offers shade in the summer and shelter in the winter months. Additionally there are also paddocks which are available by separate negotiation. A right of access through the woodland (currently occupied by Natural England as a nature reserve) would give pedestrian access to the paddocks directly from the property.
