Guide price

Bedrooms: 5
A truly exceptional opportunity to acquire a period property with adjoining barn dating back over 200 years. The property is currently split into three luxurious units offering impressive flexibility along with potential to create an even larger residence with conversion of the barn STPP. The garden is split into two sections with a courtyard lawn and garden in the front part and then a truly stunning rear garden benefiting from sweeping lawns, generously planted mixed, herbaceous and rose borders and fruit and vegetable gardens, all directly overlooking the New Forest. The Old Coach House really does offer fantastic town and country living.

The property occupies a substantial plot which is located within the beautiful New Forest National Park, with nearby access onto the open forest - offering thousands of acres of natural heath and woodland, ideal for riding, walking and cycling. The popular market town of Ringwood is approximately 1.3 miles away, providing an excellent range of high street and independent shops, boutiques, cafes and restaurants as well as supermarkets, two leisure centres and excellent state and private schooling. The easily accessible A31 offers routes to the large coastal towns of Bournemouth and Christchurch (approximately 12 miles south via the A338), and Southampton (approximately 18 miles east via the M27). London is approximately 1.5 - 2 hours drive via the M3 heading north east.

The gardens are a particular feature of the property. Designed in the English country garden style, the courtyard garden features a formal brick edged lawn backed by a deep main border with herbaceous and mixed shrub and rose planting for year round interest. Shrubs and a beautiful lilac compliment the large barn wall. Generous paved seating areas serve both downstairs properties. In the large secret garden at the back of the large barn, the former paddock has been designed to emulate Hidcote-style garden rooms, comprising a rose garden, oval lawn garden surrounded by shrubs and herbaceous planting, and separate fruit and vegetable gardens - all backing onto The New Forest with a paddock and horses beyond. Productive raspberry, blackcurrant and strawberry beds are matched by fig, apple, cherry and pear trees. Stunning roses and clematis tumble over arches and trellises, with established herbaceous borders and shrubs provide highlights in every season.
