Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A charming 4 bedroom semi detached character cottage having period origins with later additions situated in an enviable location with direct forest access and being sold with no forward chain.

Arden Cottage is believed to be some 250 years old and boasts well proportioned accommodation as a result of later extensions in sympathy with its origins. Benefits of the cottage include oil fired central heating, an electric Aga in the kitchen, attractive fireplace in the sitting room with wood burning stove, panelled internal doors and a very useful outbuilding, originally a garage and more recently used as a studio. The garden to the rear is well stocked and adjoins private farm land over which there are attractive views. The current owner has for the past 10 years benefitted from holiday let income whilst spending the summer abroad, many returning year on year, testament to the appeal of the location.

The cottage is peacefully positioned between the New Forest villages of Woodgreen and Godshill. Between them the villages have a range of local facilities, including a shop, Post Office, public houses, village halls and cricket grounds. In addition, private and state schooling for all ages is catered for in the area. Fordingbridge,3 miles away, offers comprehensive shopping facilities, banks, library and health centre. There is easy access to the regional centres of the area; the B3078 crosses the forest from Godshill to Junction 1 of the M27 for Southampton, whilst the A338 links to Salisbury and Bournemouth. All three have mainline rail services with airports at Southampton and Bournemouth. The outdoor enthusiast can enjoy the thousands of acres of heath, moor and woodland literally on the doorstep for walking, riding and cycling.
