Situated in a prime location within one of the premier roads in Sarisbury Green and tucked away within a private estate, a truly exciting opportunity to acquire this much loved family home, which extends to over 200 square metres and was occupied by my client and their family for over 90 years. The property is in need of updating and offers numerous development opportunities from refurbishing to rebuilding, subject of course to the necessary consents. A particular feature of the property is the setting; It is totally unique, tucked away within a completely private setting amongst glorious land extending to over 4 acres, offering complete peace and tranquillity. The property is approached via a sweet chestnut lined driveway with chestnut ranch style fencing flanked by ‘John’s Wood’ and the ‘upper slope’. The sweet chestnuts are truly impressive and date over 300 years producing an abundance of edible chestnuts in October. The row of oak trees bordering the far side of John’s wood were planted
in the 1950s. Entering the property along the driveway you become aware of how
impressive the setting is, nestled in part walled gardens with its origins
dating back to 1729. The land was originally a walled garden of the old Sarisbury Court House. Along the south wall there is an allotment area where the present family have grown their own fully organic fruit and vegetables for many years. The gardens are truly spectacular with two orchards, the far orchard is planted with rows of a variety of daffodils, the near orchard has established apple, pear, plum, cherry and apricot trees. There is a sea of camellias, rhododendron and hydrangeas, impressive rose beds, azaleas, acers and magnolias. There are several delightful woodland walks within the woods where there are various specimen trees including Canadian pines, eucalyptus, tulip tree, ginkgo biloba, Judas tree and an magnificent Cornus Kousa. A further wood leads down to the stream which borders Holly Hill Parkland. The bird song is all you hear within this glorious woodland oasis yet you are within easy strike of amenities, road and rail links, with no compromise on accessibility. The River Hamble is literally a stone’s throw away with direct access from the property itself leading down to the tow path, from which there are superb walks along the river to pubs and restaurants.
