Fine & Country New Forest are delighted to be representing this striking Edwardian home on the borders of The New Forest. Comprising 3 spacious reception rooms, 6 bedrooms and a plethora of characterful features, this home really does epitomise family, country living.The secluded private driveway delivers you to the large, automated gates of The Ferns. As the wrought iron panels swing open, you catch your first glimpse of the substantial Edwardian home. To the front of the house there is suitable parking for between 3 and 5 cars as well as 2 further parking spots under the wood constructed car port. The gravel pathway to the front door is lined with mature shrubs and bushes and accompanies you subtly to the threshold.
Once inside, the hallway oozes elegance with the period feature of the mahogany staircase and stone tiled flooring really give you a warm welcome. From the hallway, the main vein of the ground floor, branches off to, firstly, to the living room with its large bay window looking over the front of the house and its warming log burning fire. Following the hallway further brings you to the office. Another light room with views over the side of the property and the abutting field, where it is not uncommon to see horses grazing. At the end of the hallway is the beating heart of the property, the family room. A later edition to the property, this room is the hive of activity and combines living space, dining space and kitchen space all in one. With its vaulted ceilings and bright décor, this room of the house gives you an almost overwhelming feeling of space and light. The room is given context by the wooden beams and kitchen with dark granite work surfaces accompanied by the fashionable range cooker.
Taking the wide, Edwardian staircase to the second floor, youre greeted by two bedrooms, one being bedroom 5 and the other being the Master Suite. With views over the front of the house through its sash windows, offers a double aspect and a well-equipped ensuite shower room. Also found on the First Floor is a further large double bedroom and the recently and tactfully refurbished family bathroom. Climbing the staircase to the Second Floor gives you access to more sleeping accommodation in the form of two double bedrooms, with ensuite shower rooms and the added benefit of a playroom which adjoins the bedroom towards the front of the house.
Surrounding the house, youll find its gardens. To the front, the gravel driveway and parking area flanks a beautifully kept lawn of the south facing aspect, enabling you to enjoy the sun from dawn til dusk. To the rear of the property there is a substantial decked area along with a courtyard-style patio area and a fruit cage. The exterior of the property also benefits from a double car port as well as a summer house complete with power and light.
