Full description

Tenure: Freehold

In the heart of the village, a handsome period house with 4/5 bedroom accommodation of about 2,220 sq. ft. over 3 floors set in 0.62 acre with outbuildings including stables and a barn.

Originally under the ownership of The Manor House, Shrimptons is a most attractive period home of red brick elevation under a clay tiled roof. The house has been remodelled and modernised by the present owners yet the heritage of the original dwelling has been sensitively retained. At its heart is a fabulous kitchen/breakfast room open to the dining/family room and leads to the formal sitting room as well as a play room and good sized study, either of which could serve as a ground floor bedroom if required. Two upper floors are home to four bedrooms, the master en suite, and a family bathroom, both of which have been refurbished. Externally Shrimptons sits in a plot of 0.62 acres and benefits from an array of useful outbuildings ranging from stabling, a barn and store.

Shrimptons is located within the picturesque conservation village of Martin. Bordering the village to the South-West is Martin Down National Nature Reserve where a network of paths and bridle ways provide lovely walking and riding opportunities. Martin is home to a church, village hall, from which a local shop is run, and a village club. Neighbouring Damerham has a primary school, garage and public house. The Avonside town of Fordingbridge (approx. 6 miles) has services to cater for most everyday needs and the area is blessed with an array of reputable schooling including Bishop Wordsworth's and South Wilts Grammar Schools, Godolphin and Chafyn Grove in Salisbury. Communications in the area are good and the A354 supplies convenient access to Salisbury and Blandford. The outdoor enthusiast is catered for not only by the surrounding countryside but also the New Forest National Park, which lies a short distance East of Fordingbridge.
