Introduction

Having been in the same family for the last 50 years, this charming detached forest residence is offered to the market with no forward chain. Enjoying a favoured position in the heart of the desirable New Forest village of Cadnam, the property is set on a mature and generous plot offering four well proportioned bedrooms with the principal bedroom situated on the first floor enjoying ensuite facilities. The property has been previously extended with the last addition in the mid 90's with further scope to modernise or reconfigure. A sizeable triple aspect sitting room features a working recessed fireplace accessed from the most welcoming reception hall along with a separate formal dining room. A family bathroom and three of the bedrooms are situated on the ground floor along with the kitchen breakfast room overlooking the lovely rear garden via sliding glazed doors. Set back from the road, a mature tree punctuates the shaped lawn and extensive driveway extending to the detached single garage. Cadnam offers a variety of amenities which include a garage, shop, public house, garden centre and of course beautiful forest on the doorstep. The proximity to the M27 makes this a great location for those buyers seeking easy commuting.
