Enjoying the most tranquil and picturesque of settings surrounded by rolling countryside in the New Forest village of Landford, is this impressive four bedroom character cottage offering beautifully light and bright accommodation.
“Kings Cottage has been our family home for the past 38 years and needless to say holds many special memories for us, being in the New Forest National Park without having to suffer the disadvantages of tourism and its ease of access to both Salisbury and Southampton have all added to the reason houses come up for sale rarely down North Common Lane.”
“A very special place with many memories, Sunday walks through the woods to the Cuckoo, the many dog walks in the New Forest, croquet in the peace and quiet of the garden, despite the competition, the many barbecues enjoyed with family and friends and the winter walks followed by an open fire.”
Kings Cottage was constructed in 1874 and features a stunning mature plot of approximately 3/4 acre comprising delightful formal gardens and paddock. There is an impressive array of outbuildings including a studio and well proportioned double garage which offers conversion potential to an annex, subject to planning permission.
