Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Located in the heart of the sought after village of Sandleheath a fully refurbished 4 bedroom, 3 bath/shower room chalet style family home of about 1,500 sq. ft. with garage.

Over the preceding ten years Latchmore has undergone a radical transformation at the hands of the current owners, who have cleverly evolved the original 1960s bungalow into the stylish home of today. The frontage belies the accommodation within, and single and first floor additions have created a surprising depth of accommodation. A welcoming, spacious entrance hall leads to the sitting and dining rooms, a superbly fitted kitchen and two ground floor bedrooms, one of which currently serves as an office. A galleried landing leads to a bathroom and two double bedrooms on the upper level - the master having the benefit of a luxuriously appointed en suite - whilst there is a shower room on the ground floor. The principal living rooms and bedrooms all benefit from a high degree of natural light via a dual aspect or Velux windows and the standard of finish is impressively high throughout, with particular attention given to the specification of the kitchen and bathrooms, the level and quality of internal lighting including spot lights and uplights, and oak internal doors and flooring. Externally there is ample driveway parking, a single garage and an enclosed, partially south facing rear garden.

Latchmore stands in the centre of the village, within walking distance of the open space of the village 'Common'. The thriving community of Sandleheath is home to a shop and sub-Post Office, a church, tennis club and scout hall, whilst the Avonside town of Fordingbridge (approximately 1 1/2 miles) offers a wider range of shops, banks, a library and an excellent health centre. The local area is blessed with reputable schools within both the state and private sectors; Western Downland at Rockbourne and Damerham, Fordingbridge Infant and Junior School, Burgate Secondary and Sixth Form and Forres Sandle Manor and a school bus serving the Fordingbridge schools runs through the village. The local road network supplies convenient access to the regional employment and commercial centres of Salisbury, Bournemouth and Southampton; all provide mainline links to London and there are airports at the latter two. The surrounding countryside provides myriad walking, riding and cycling opportunities via a number of paths and bridle ways, whilst the New Forest National Park lies approximately 3 miles to the East.
