Guide price

Bedrooms: 4
This eye-catching 'Arts & Crafts' style residence retains a wealth of original features from its 1916 origins and provides well-proportioned accommodation boasting an impressive, flexible arrangement of rooms. This includes four generous bedrooms, a variety of pleasing reception areas, a kitchen/breakfast room, two bathrooms and a ground floor WC. The imposing home is set on a mature, well-maintained plot (which includes a sizeable double garage along with other outbuildings) and the attractive grounds extend to approximately 0.62 of an acre enjoying a southerly aspect as well as an enviable outlook across surrounding woodland, grazing land and even Southampton Water. This unique dwelling truly must be viewed to be fully appreciated.

LOCATION The property is beautifully positioned within a hamlet called Ashlett Creek, a small tidal creek which benefits from direct tidal access to Southampton Water and is therefore home to various sailing boats and a picturesque public house called The Jolly Sailor. The village of Fawley is just a short walk away and offers a variety of day to day amenities including local shops, take aways and another pub. The New Forest National Park is within easy reach allowing many outside activities to be enjoyed. There are also activity centres nearby at Calshot, Gang Warily and Lepe Country Park. A regular bus service provides access to the surrounding towns and villages including the market town of Hythe (with its historic pier, train and passenger ferry) as well as the busy maritime city of Southampton.
