Full description

Tenure: Freehold

PROPERTY: Snowdrop Cottage comprises a three/four bedroom cottage with two/three reception rooms, a farmhouse style kitchen with an oil fired Aga, a detached thatched garage all set in about 1/3 acre of landscaped gardens. There is a charming little running brook at the end of the rear garden which overlooks open fields, next to an elevated decking area shaded by a mature Weeping Willow. The current owners since 1999 have upgraded, imaginatively improved, and added considerable value to the cottage in using the space available, to the extent of commissioning a carpenter ( who resided at the cottage for 6 months ) to hand build many of the fixtures and fittings, wardrobes and doorways. The main feature of the property might be the large inglenook fireplace with a solid fuel burner and original bread oven in the dining room, this dates back around 400 years.

AREA: The area offers many beautiful walks and great cycling, and is famous for its free roaming ponies, donkeys and cattle. The small market town of Fordingbridge is close by, with its renowned stone arched bridge, plenty of shops, pubs, a caf� and riverside location to enjoy, as is the larger town of Ringwood, with its selection of individual shops, pubs and restaurants. Christchurch Harbour is a great area, less than 10 miles away. The coast, with Blue Flag beaches at Bournemouth and Poole, is within easy reach, as is the city of Salisbury with its medieval cathedral. There are many places of interest for families, including Marwell Zoological Park, the New Forest Otter and Owl Wildlife Park or a day out at Beaulieu Motor Museum. Further afield, but worth the trip, are Monkey World and the Tank Museum near Wool, and Southampton with its maritime history and West Quay shopping centre. Shop 3 miles and pub 1� miles.

Snowdrop Cottage was used as the subject of a Lilliput Lane model for the Queens Silver Jubilee � (see http://www.jrsaville.co.uk/harbridge.htm) The owners have an original of this limited edition model.

When the owners were refurbishing the cottage, some years ago, they were fortunate to meet up with a lady who had lived in the cottage 50 years previously as a child. She had some drawings which had been produced by an uncle of the original inglenook fireplace. The owners stripped back the fireplace, and have restored it to what it looked like originally.

The thatch was reworked in November 2011 by Nigel Turton, a local thatcher. The ridge of the property and the garage thatch were also completely replaced at this time.
