This charming character home is one of the original properties on Wood Road which has remained in the current family's ownership since its construction in the early 1900's.

Owners Comments

"The house has always been a welcoming family home; we've had lots of parties and barbecues, and have many happy memories - if one of us had a young, growing family we would keep it in the family. It will be nice for another family to move in and make it their own."

"There are great schools in the area for children of all ages, a playground and forest to explore! It's great to be able to walk straight into the forest, or just a short trip by car to the beach. Shops and pubs are close by in the village, and it's easy to go further afield to Southampton, Bournemouth or London - there's a regular train service and easy access to the motorway."

Introduction

The accommodation is well proportioned, offering four double bedrooms and two reception rooms with a large conservatory/utility area which overlooks the private rear garden. There is scope to reconfigure and modernise with possible extension subject to planning. A block paved driveway provides off road parking fronting the generous integral garage with remote up and over door. Wood Road is ideally situated in the heart of the desirable New Forest Village of Ashurst.
