Owners Comment

“We lived in Silverdale for 5 years, before moving overseas. We found it to be a great home for raising our children and for entertaining family and friends. Being in the heart of the village, we always felt a strong sense of community and enjoyed attending social functions in the tin church which is a stones throw from the house. We also loved taking the dog to the open forest which is within walking distance.”


Offered with no onward chain, this spacious home will suit the largest of families with up to six double bedrooms available as well as a sitting room, study and an impressive open plan live in kitchen dining area. The property would benefit from some cosmetic updating. Set within mature front and rear gardens ample parking is available on the gated driveway with a pedestrian side gate leading to the rear garden which enjoys a tree lined backdrop, a brick built summer house and workshop/garden store. The open forest is just moments away as well as a local shop and Post Office, public house with schooling in the village. Commuter links are easily accessible with the M27 motorway less than three miles away and direct rail links are at Ashurst, Totton or Southampton Airport Parkway.


A part glazed UPVC front door opens into the spacious front porch with glazed French doors into the welcoming entrance hall which hosts the feature turning staircase to the first floor. A large storage cupboard provides ample space for coats and shoes. The charming sitting room overlooks the rear garden with a door onto the patio. An ornate coal effect gas fire place provides an attractive feature to the room with floral tiled surround and timber mantle. The study is accessed from the sitting room and leads to a large double bedroom. The impressive open plan kitchen diner offers a social open space and features a range of shaker style wall and base units with contrasting oak block worksurfaces and central island set on a slate floor. The extensive range of units provides a generous amount of storage and incorporate display cupboards, a wine rack, range style cooker, dishwasher and plumbing for a washing machine. Two further dual aspect double bedrooms are situated on the ground floor as well as a family bathroom with airing cupboard.

The first floor landing is bright due to two Velux windows with room for a seating/study area whilst serving the three double bedrooms, all of which benefit from extensive fitted wardrobes and storage.
