Hollybank is a quintessential and remarkably spacious country home in the heart of the New Forest National Park and sited in a elevated position amidst enchanting gardens and grounds of approximately 2.6 acres.

The home is believed to be 1930s in its original part and has been subject to extension in recent years to now provide 4 bedrooms, 2 reception rooms and offer annexe potential. There is ample scope to further develop or extend subject to usual permissions. Holding a discreet elevated position taking full advantage of the views across its own land and the New Forest beyond, the rooms are of excellent proportions and provide family orientated, versatile accommodation over two floors. The ground floor accommodation is excellently balanced for space and practicality with a stunning dual aspect sitting room with a log burner and French doors leading to the rear terrace, spacious dining room and a heart of the home sizeable kitchen/ breakfast room completing the living accommodation. In addition there are 3 generous double bedrooms, one with an en-suite including his and hers sinks and the remainder serviced by a family bathroom. Completing the ground floor is a sizeable porch/ boot room. On the first floor there is a superb master suite, complete with walk in wardrobe/ study, en-suite shower room and a private balcony with stunning rural views.

The property is approached through a wooden gateway with pedestrian access leading down to a hard standing area, that in turn provides access to the detached garage and useful timber frame car barn. There is ample parking for several vehicles. The property is positioned to the north of its plot, with the expansive gardens, grounds and paddocks enjoying a southerly aspect gently sloping away from the rear of the home. The gardens themselves are divided into functional areas. Adjacent to the rear of the home is a paved terrace that is ideal for entertaining and enjoying the open vista over the gardens beyond. The formal gardens adjoin the terrace and are majority laid to lawn with a perfectly positioned summerhouse, pond and a multitude of established specimen trees. A gate then leads through to the bottom paddock and brook beyond. To the side of the home steps lead to the kitchen garden where there are fruit cages and fruit trees. The stables and outbuildings can then be found beyond. There are two timber construction stables, useful brick built outbuildings and a further paddock can then be found with a separate access over a small cattle grid offering further parking for cars, boats or caravan. The paddocks all have post and rail boundaries. A third paddock could easily be created out of the formal gardens.

Properties of this calibre are rarely available and is ideal for those wishing to combine the benefits of rural living whilst being able to access all the local amenities of a thriving village.
