Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Offering scope for refurbishment or redevelopment (stpp), a spacious 4 bedroom chalet style home set in approximately 2.5 acres situated in a superb New Forest location with views of the surrounding forest and heathland. Suitable for cash buyers only.

Hollybank is believed to originally date from the 1930s, although has been extended at various intervals since, notably with the expansion of the ground floor and latter addition of the first floor. The layout is versatile, with a range of living rooms and bedrooms on the ground floor complemented by the spacious master suite on the upper level, and a number of rooms benefit from a southerly aspect over the garden. Notably the master bedroom opens onto a balcony providing stunning views of the garden and forest beyond. Though well maintained there is scope for refurbishment or redevelopment, subject to gaining all necessary planning permission.

Hollybank occupies a truly wonderful location at Gorley Lynch between the village of Hyde and small forest hamlet of Ogdens. Hyde is one of several peaceful villages in the immediate vicinity that populate the upper North West corner of the National Park, home to a reputable primary school overlooking Hyde Common and Hyde Garden Centre, where there is also a small shop and Tea Rooms. The Avonside town of Fordingbridge (approximately 2 1/2 miles) offers a range of educational, recreational and health facilities to cater for most everyday needs. Communications and access to the wider area are good. The A338 provides a convenient route to Salisbury, Ringwood and Bournemouth and the B3078 crosses the forest to link with Junction 1 of the M27 for Southampton and beyond. Airports are located at Bournemouth and Southampton and direct rail services run from all three principal centres to London Waterloo. The outdoor enthusiast is equally well catered for and with the New Forest quite literally on the doorstep some wonderful walking, riding, running, and cycling opportunities are to hand.
