Idyllically located just a stones' throw from the open forest, this attractive three bedroom bungalow has recently been extended and refurbished to a high standard throughout by the current owners, who have created an immaculate family home which would also provide an ideal country retreat for those searching for a tucked away New Forest bolt hole. Energy Performance Rating: D

The property is situated along a quiet lane in the picturesque village of Hyde, within walking distance of Hyde Primary School, country pub, village hall, garden centre/tea rooms and church. The neighbouring towns of Fordingbridge and Ringwood offer further amenities including independent and high street shops, supermarkets, leisure centres and cafes/restaurants. Hyde is located in the stunning New Forest National Park, providing thousands of acres of natural heath and woodland, ideal for a range of outdoor pursuits, particularly walking, cycling and horse riding. The easily accessible A338 takes you to the cathedral city of Salisbury, with mainline railway station (approximately 10 miles north), and the bustling coastal towns of Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole (approximately 18 miles south). Southampton is approximately 20 miles east (via the A31/M27) and is London approximately a two hour drive (via the M27/M3/M25).

The property now comprises a stylish open plan kitchen/dining room which has been beautifully refitted with a range of modern white Shaker style cabinets under attractive granite working surfaces, which incorporate a ceramic sink and a range of integrated Bosch appliances including a ceramic hob with extractor over, combi microwave/oven, separate oven and dishwasher, plus a fridge/freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer. In addition, there is a cupboard housing a Worcester oil fired boiler. This is a naturally light and airy room, which also benefits from inset spotlights and under cabinet lighting, whilst attractive grey Porcelanosa floor tiles flow seamlessly throughout and into the spacious dining room, which has bi-folding doors that open to the garden. There is a useful storage cupboard and an access hatch with ladder leading to a large part-boarded loft space with lighting and a window, which could provide additional potential, subject to any necessary consents. From here access is provided to one of three double bedrooms and to the sitting room; a lovely dual aspect room which centres upon a cosy cast iron log burning stove and features a bay window with French doors opening onto the front garden. A hallway leads through to the rear lobby which houses an airing cupboard and provides access to bedroom two plus the master bedroom, both of which enjoy lovely views over the rear garden. The master bedroom has the benefit of a fully tiled en-suite shower room with corner shower featuring both rain-head and hand-held shower facilities, a wash hand basin in a vanity unit, WC, heated towel rail and anti-mist mirror. In addition, there is a beautifully refitted family bathroom which has a white suite comprising a bath, separate walk-in shower with both rain-head and hand-held shower facilities, WC, wash hand basin in a vanity unit plus a heated towel rail and heated anti-mist mirror, whilst three alcoves with inset spotlights provide useful storage areas.

Outside, the property is approached via a quiet lane through a five-bar gate which opens onto a gravel driveway providing parking for several vehicles. To the front of the property there is a pretty brick edged lawn with a raised railway sleeper border housing a mature hedgerow. Pathways lead either side of the property to the rear garden and to a large paved terrace located adjacent to the dining room which creates a perfect space for outside dining and entertaining. The rear garden is fully enclosed by fencing and mature hedging and features apple and chestnut trees, whilst the remainder is predominantly laid to lawn. There is a large detached timber outbuilding (with power and light) which could easily be used as a single garage subject to the driveway being modified to create vehicular access.
