Broad Oak is a small rural hamlet tucked away adjoining Odiham Woods and the Basingstoke Canal yet remarkably within one mile of Odiham High Street. It is a no through road with mainly period houses set back from the common in a picturesque setting. Oak Lodge is well positioned in the centre of Broad Oak with screening provided by a combination of its own grounds and adjoining common land to the front. There is access to the Basingstoke Canal via the local footpath/bridge which leads to the towpath or Odiham Woods/Common where there are extensive country walks.
Local shopping is nearby in Odiham where there is also schooling from infant to secondary level. As well as the Odiham schools, there are a wealth of well-regarded private school in the vicinity including Lord Wandsworth College, Daneshill School and St Nicholas School.
More comprehensive shopping and recreational facilities can be found in the regional centres of Fleet, Farnham, Basingstoke, Reading and Guildford. Broad Oak is strategically well placed for local and regional communications being within 2 miles of Junction 5 of the M3 and with easy access to local mainline stations at Hook and Winchfield both serving London Waterloo.
Oak Lodge is accessed via a timber 5-bar gate over a gravelled drive extending to a parking area adjoining the detached double garage. From the rear and side of the house is a substantial sun terrace leading through formally laid out rose and shrub beds contained by low level clipped box hedging. Extending from these formal beds the garden is predominantly laid to lawn interspersed with a number of mature oak trees, a substantial pond framed by a grass bank. Beyond a folly ruin is a well-stocked orchard set in a small meadow with grass paths meandering through to the stream being located in the north east corner of the garden.
The equestrian land, contained with post and rail fencing are the paddocks and a 20 x 40 manege (sand and rubber). The paddocks have two access points with one directly off the lane and the other through the stable yard which comprises 2 loose boxes and a hay barn. In all the gardens and grounds extend to approximately 3.5 acres. Riders can hack 'off road' directly from Oak Lodge.
