West Common, Southampton

Guide price

Bedrooms: 5

Featuring an impressive plot measuring (approx.) 3.75 acres and set within a highly favoured position on the edge of The New Forest National Park, this detached property provides an excellent potential purchase for the equine enthusiast who's looking for something to make their own! The house has been empty for some years and is in need of complete renovation. However, the paddocks have been used until recently and are presented in good condition. We strongly advise a site visit to fully appreciate the exceptional potential on offer within this appealing equestrian home. Viewing by appointment only please.
