Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Situated in the centre of the sought after village of Rockbourne, a 3 bedroom semi-detached house occupying an appealing elevated position with farmland views.

2, Minty's Hill is one of six semi-detached houses privately located in an elevated position within the village. The house is believed to date from 1948 and is of whitewash brick elevations under a tiled roof. The accommodation is laid out over three floors, with a useful loft room forming the upper level; the first floor is home to three bedrooms and a cloakroom, whilst on the ground floor is a sitting room with open fire place, a good sized kitchen/breakfast room and bathroom. Externally there are front and rear gardens with easy access onto a footpath for countryside walks and the house benefits from some lovely countryside and village views, oil fired central heating and predominantly double glazed windows.

The high ground of Mintys Hill sits centrally within the sought after Downland village of Rockbourne amidst lovely rolling countryside, much of which is a designated Conservation Area. Rockbourne is home to a thriving community that benefits from a reputable primary school - which is within close walking distance - a village hall, a church and popular public house. The Avonside town of Fordingbridge (4 miles) provides a comprehensive range of day to day services, including schooling, a medical/health centre, a good range of local shops, banks and a library. The excellent communications network allows ready access to the regional centres of Salisbury, Bournemouth and Southampton; all have mainline rail links to London Waterloo and there are airports at the latter two. A myriad of footpaths and bridleways exist in the surrounding area and there is magnificent out-riding to be had on Whitsbury Downs; the contrasting moor, heath and woodland of the New Forest is approximately four miles to the East.
