Property description

A six bedroom Victorian/Edwardian country house offering well-appointed accommodation with many period features. Located in a much desired hamlet within the New Forest, the property comes to the market for the first time in 34 years. Substantial standalone annex next to the main building.

Situated in a country lane, some three miles east of the market town of Ringwood, Hampshire, the property enjoys direct access to the New Forest, offering opportunities for equestrian and other countryside activities, whilst enjoying privacy, and thereby security, in a land area approaching three acres.

The house is set in a traditional heritage garden with sweeping lawns, formal gardens and fruit trees, with a large vegetable plot (also available for other purposes), all complemented by a natural woodland.

Internally the property has been meticulously maintained by the present owners, who have carefully nurtured its original structure whilst improving its facilities to meet modern standards, and now offers well-appointed accommodation in keeping with its historical background.

As a family home, Shobley House is warm, light and welcoming, and very rare to find in the present property market. Equally it also offers ideal facilities for social and business entertaining with its accommodation, dining facilities, lawned areas and ample secure car parking. The substantial annexe lends itself to a variety of uses, for business, leisure and family purposes.

The Grounds are made up of formal landscaped garden and natural woodland gardens. The lawns sweep towards the rear boundary enveloping two sides of the house. There is a range of fruit and mature trees, shingled paths and a small path leading through a bluebell wood. Set aside from the formal gardens are around two acres of wild garden of which the current owners have made a path to enjoy the various species of flora. To the rear of the Garage and the Workshop there is a sizeable vegetable plot supported by a greenhouse and an outbuilding for all garden machinery tools.

Shobley House is now reluctantly offered for sale by the present owners. In their own words, "We have lived in this wonderful house for 34 years. The seasons are magical with the lawns and woodland, garden parties and festive occasions that young and old never forget".

Location : The property is ideally located in an area of outstanding natural beauty within comfortable driving distance of Southampton, Winchester, Salisbury, Christchurch, Bournemouth, and Poole, and the internationally acclaimed beaches and marinas of the English south coast. There is easy access further afield via the motorway network, easily reached from Shobley.

There is a 1-hour fast train service to Waterloo from Southampton and the two regional airports of Hurn and Southampton for European and connecting international flights. The two ferry ports of Portsmouth and Poole offer easy access to mainland Europe and the Channel Islands.
