Full description

From our High Street office proceed in a westerly direction into St Thomas Street joining the one way system in the right hand lane and proceeding out of Lymington in a northerly direction on the Southampton Road. Continue over the traffic lights, past the Monkey House (public house) before crossing over the mini roundabout. After passing under the railway bridge turn immediately left after the roundabout into the entrance of Passford Farm.

The Property

Passford Farm is a truly picturesque grade II listed period cottage steeped in history and hearsay. It is difficult to date exactly but it is believed to have been built around the turn of the seventeenth century although mentioned in some records going back earlier. Much has been written about this intriguing property. The main house has a wealth of exposed timber ceilings and wall beams, plus an inglenook fireplace, and has been tastefully restored with superbly fitted kitchen/breakfast room, charming living room and large ground floor bedroom suite. Outside there is an extensive range of ancillary accommodation to include a converted barn and detached self contained chalet, detached self contained lodge and three studio apartments. Set in enchantingly landscaped gardens and grounds with many features to include a large pond, medieval well, running brook (Passford Water) with an area of paddock and two extensive areas of gravel parking. Behind the farm is a raised area which incorporates the swimming pool and pool room delightfully situated overlooking the grounds and paddocks at the rear. The grounds extend to somewhere in the region of three acres, the whole making a unique package being one of the most noted and photographed local properties appearing on many publications such as calendars and postcards. Suitable for a number of uses to include bed and breakfast, the property would also appeal to two/three families as well as those looking to create a home with an income having extensive ancillary accommodation.  We also understand that the lodge at the rear could be sold off as a separate entity. We thoroughly recommend a viewing of this intriguing property to fully appreciate its full potential. 

Location

The cottage is approached via an electronic gate and stands well back from the road with a gravel driveway bounded by raised banks of flower and shrub borders and continues on to a large turning circle at the side of the property giving extensive parking. Flanking the driveway are areas of delightful landscaped grounds incorporating a large pond with feature willow and established boundaries. Over the years an extensive program of planting with various trees and shrubs provides excellent screening to the front. 

The rest of the grounds lie to the rear being principally of meadow with an access road leading to the chalet, lodge & studios and a further extensive area of gravel parking. The grounds are superbly screened by banks of established tree boundaries and are a particular feature which we believe extend to somewhere in the region of three acres and complement this delightful property.
