Full description

Quintessential thatched country cottage enjoying an elevated position on Frogham Hill with superb views and providing an extremely flexible arrangement of three/four bedroom family accommodation which would also satisfy those purchasers with a requirement for a ground floor annexe wing.

Enviably positioned on the village fringes falling inside the cattle grid with ponies and donkeys quite literally outside your gate, Frogham is a sought after village with a tremendous community most of which centres around the popular public house.  Also playing host to a cricket green and village hall, a reputable primary school can be found at neighbouring Hale whilst the market town of Fordingbridge and its more widespread amenities is approximately 1.5 miles away.  The cathedral city of Salisbury and its mainline railway station is only a short drive away with main roads and motorways  readily accessible too making this an ideal location for those seeking a convenient country environment without being isolated  Open heath and woodland, flora and fauna, wildlife and a plethora of footpaths and bridleways quite literally engulf this highly desirable location whilst the area is also renowned for its wealth of educational, cultural and recreational amenities.  

With origins dating back to the mid 1700s together with more recent additions, a most deceptive arrangement of versatile accommodation can be found within this period thatched cottage and which is likely to suit both families and couples alike.  Unlike the majority of thatched cottages, the interior benefits from good ceiling heights whilst the principal rooms also enjoy dual aspect outlooks.  A wealth of character features and detailing have been retained whilst the property has also benefitted from further improvement in more recent years.  The ground floor includes a lovely sitting/dining room centring on a large inglenook fireplace whilst a family room/separate dining room which forms part of the later Victorian addition is another lovely spacious room.  The kitchen breakfast room has been attractively fitted in a complimentary country style and which can also be comfortably dined in.  A study links directly with an adjacent shower/cloak room and in turn a separate utility room and back door and which has previously been used as self contained ground floor annexe wing adding a further and very flexible dimension to the ground floor living space.   Upstairs the accommodation continues to surprise with three sizeable bedrooms, all of which are of generous doubles together with three bath rooms, two of which are en suite including a most spacious bath/dressing room to the master complete with roll top bath, twin pedestal wash hand basins and ample space for dressing.  Lovely far reaching views are enjoyed to the front aspect over the surrounding countryside whilst the elevated position also ensures excellent privacy from the lane.

The gardens are a total delight extending to one fifth of an acre and arranged over differing levels.  Beautifully planted with mature shrubs and trees creating interest and colour throughout the seasons, they have been designed in such a way in order to avoid high maintenance.    The front garden is of an excellent size whilst its elevated position from the lane ensures excellent seclusion and privacy.  Laid to lawn a lovely slate terrace enjoys a sunny southerly aspect and provides the perfect spot to enjoy the lovely views.    Wide tiered areas can be found immediately to the rear of the property laid principally to lawn and interspersed with mature shrubs.  An outdoor heated swimming pool enjoys a discrete and tucked away position and perfectly positioned for all day sunshine.  The top garden plays host to a quite superb thatched round house, another perfect place to while away the hours, alternatively would make a great home office/studio and from where the views really are unsurpassed.  In addition a separate summer house can also be found nestled in another corner.  Other outbuildings include two timber stores and log store whilst immediately adjacent to the lane is a detached single garage together with an enclosed and gated parking area.
