Introduction

Furzecroft is a wonderful family home occupying secluded and immaculately tended grounds approaching one acre in the popular village of Landford. Offering substantial accommodation which has been beautifully upgraded, the property has Victorian origins which have been delightfully fused with impressive modern additions to create an excellent social flow. The kitchen living room has been recently extended, enjoying a triple aspect and elegantly styled with a fully integrated kitchen, twin sets of doors to the feature sun terrace and ceiling lantern which affords much natural light. The master bedroom suite is vaulted with a Juliet balcony overlooking the gardens and a luxurious en suite shower room. The house is well screened from the road and benefits from extensive parking as well as a double garage and is ideally positioned for excellent local schooling and commuter links, being located just yards from the open New Forest.

Description

A porchway with composite and glazed door opens into the entrance hall where oak flooring flows through to the principal rooms. The sitting room enjoys features from its Victorian heritage, having been traditionally styled by the owners and includes a feature brick fireplace with stone hearth and oak mantle. A Victorian bay window with shutters faces the fore with an inset window seat. The room is of excellent proportions yet still offers a cosy feel. The kitchen breakfast room is delightful, bright and light with twin sets of doors to the terrace and a large ceiling lantern over the sitting area. Attractive flagstone flooring with underfloor heating offers a modern ambience and the kitchen is beautifully styled with bespoke traditional cabinets and generous Corian worktops. There are ample handmade larder cabinets, drawers and cupboards and a large central island hosting a five burner hob with discreet extractor hood over. Integrated appliances include a tall fridge, double oven, warming drawer, microwave, dishwasher and under counter freezer. The room flows elegantly via a square arch into the formal dining room which is also of generous proportions with further French doors to the sun terrace and glazed doors back to the hall. The utility room supplements the kitchen storage but also hosts the airing cupboard, plumbing for appliances, water softener and door to the side. There is also a ground floor cloakroom and large storage cupboard. A study with the original cast iron fireplace completes the ground floor accommodation.

The master bedroom is wholly impressive, vaulted with sliding patio doors from a Juliet balcony overlooking the tended grounds. There is ample storage with double wardrobes and loft space. A nicely fitted ensuite shower room comprises shower cubicle, pedestal wash hand basin and low level WC. Bedroom two and bedroom three enjoy ensuite facilities with bedroom two overlooking the gardens and hosting a recessed wardrobe. The two remaining bedrooms are well sized, one with the original fireplace and built in storage. Both are served by the family bathroom which is luxurious, fitted with an eclipse bath, pedestal wash hand basin and low level WC.

Outside

Furzecroft is beautifully screened from the road via mature firs and laurel hedging to create exceptional privacy. Double automated gates open into the extensive gravel driveway with generous parking and turning space fronting the double garage with automated up and over doors and storage over. There is a well to the fore and a laurel hedged pedestrian pathway to the front door. The gardens are approaching one acre and are beautifully tended with a tiered patio adjoining the rear elevation and a further one with pergola behind the garage. The grounds are predominantly lawned with mature hedgerow providing a high degree of privacy and seclusion and well stocked pretty flower borders. An evening sun deck is an ideal venue to enjoy all day sunshine. The large timber store is also well screened and hosts power and lighting and has recently been re-roofed. To the rear of the garden are delightful squared flower borders and an excellent productive area of raised beds, shingled patio and green house.

Location

Landford is an attractive village and civil parish situated on the Hampshire Wiltshire border equidistant from Southampton and Salisbury enjoying New Forest National Park status. Straddling the A36 the village features a wealth of amenities, many of which are only acquainted by locals. There is a choice of immediate public houses, a village primary school, excellent shop and Post Office providing a surprisingly diverse range of products and proximity to the stunning New Forest countryside. Its appeal has been enhanced in recent years by its excellent commuter access and its catchment to the popular Salisbury Grammar Schools which has subsequently attracted a more diverse community yet retaining its friendly and sociable atmosphere.

Agent Note

The property is served by mains gas and mains drainage. It is also double glazed throughout.

Directions

From the Ower roundabout, take the A36 towards Salisbury and continue through the villages of Wellow and Plaitford. Take the left hand turn into New Road, sign posted Nomansland and Furzecroft can be found approximately 1/2 mile on the left hand side.
