Follow us and begin to imagine your own next adventure. Let us show you round this ideally positioned house, whether you are looking for a holiday home or a permanent base. Travel here by car though the New Forest or fill your lungs with the fresh air of the seaside. Turn into the driveway and on into the private gardens .Rivers, fields and meadows surround the area, providing some gorgeous backdrops to strolls around the village and country but the A338 is close by and runs directly to Salisbury and to the coast should you want larger shops, theatres or restaurants.
This is an exclusive development for over 55's so it's a peaceful and relaxing area with gardens that you can truly enjoy. There is plenty to do locally with a good number of friendly clubs to join, catering for most tastes. Your first view of its setting is breath-taking itself and doesn't do enough to prepare you for what's inside.
Step inside and enter a bright and spacious entrance hall, with stairs to the first floor ahead, running parallel to a short passage leading to the downstairs bathroom. We'll return here shortly but for now, take the door immediately to your right to enter the living room.
You'll first notice how much space the room has, with a large bay window offering fantastic views of the front of the property and allowing plenty of light to reach inside. Wall mounted lighting adds atmosphere at night and there is a gorgeous fireplace with a marble base and surround. It's a long room with pale walls and carpet with double glass panelled doors at the far end that can be closed for cosiness or left open for views right through to the back garden and the river that you overlook.
Cross the threshold to enter the dining room, which continues the style and décor from the living room but is perfectly shaped and placed for a large table for all your meals. Just beyond this are more glass panelled doors leading to a conservatory or utility room. This space can be used however you want, with room for chairs and a small table or as a utility room, with plumbing for a washing machine already available. There's also the door to the back garden and its patio.
The third door in the dining room leads to the kitchen. Tiled flooring and partially tiled walls complement the wood cupboards at floor and wall level, which are topped with bright counters. It's a smart and stylish look with counters on three sides, offering plenty of space to get let your culinary skills come alive! An integrated oven and electric hob sit on the far wall with an extractor fan also installed, providing everything you need. You also get a view to the rear of the property with its river and trees.
Return to the entrance hall and, before taking the stairs, head down the short corridor to the bathroom. A bright room with a toilet and sink but plenty of storage, including access to the cupboard under the stairs and further space in the wall just beyond. Very practically placed.
Take the stairs to the first floor and enter the door immediately on your left to find the main bathroom. A large bathtub with overhead shower attachment and shower screen sit on the left with a matching toilet and sink. The walls are partially tiled and the window looks to the back garden. There's a large towel rack on the right-hand wall, as well.
Right next to the bathroom is the first of three bedrooms in this property. With views to the rear and the river, this room is large enough for a good-sized bed and furniture, with two doors along wall leading to further storage space, keeping everything neat and tidy.
Continue along the landing to find the second bedroom, which is front facing, towards the Church. This room also features a built-in wardrobe as well as plenty of space for a large bed and furniture. The ensuite includes a shower cubicle, toilet and sink with partially tiled walls and a towel rack.
At the end of the landing are the stairs to the second floor but there's a good amount of space here, as well as a window. This can be useful for bookcases with maybe a chair to sit in and read in a quiet spot of the house or a great space for a desk or study for any work or hobbies. Take the stairs up again to find another bathroom with a toilet, sink towel rack and angled window in the eave.
Beyond this we find the final bedroom, the biggest in the house. It takes up the rest of the second floor and is an impressive size, stretching from front to back of the property. The eaves on either side don't impact the space at all, as there's plenty of it to utilise. You can fit a huge amount of furniture here as well as any size bed you want and being close to a bathroom saves you walking up and down stairs all the time.
Head back to the ground floor and take the door at the back of the house to see the back garden. With the River Avon running just beyond the lawn area, you'll have a real sense of community here as the boundaries are few and space is shared with other residents but the views you'll enjoy are beautiful, with fields and meadows not far away. The running water adds a soothing backdrop to enjoy those sunny afternoons with friends or family. With the communal gardens, maintenance, the services and an on-site manager provided by Cognatum, the management company, we understand that there is a quarterly management charge of circa £832.
Church Leat overlooks the beautiful St Lawrence's Church. Downton has a long history, having been a key settlement for 7000 years. The village has a good range of shops including a Co-op, Post Office, various pubs, hair dressers, doctors, dentists, churches, sports clubs and a library. Services include a resident manager, attractive gardens and grounds.
With such stunning views and a great amount of space, this property won't be around for long. Call us 24x7 or go to our website to book a viewing now, to avoid missing out on this great home.
