Ash Hill Common, Sherfield English, Romsey So51

5 bedrooms

A period cottage largely extended during the 1980s providing comprehensive family accommodation in and elevated rural position benefitting from total seclusion with mature gardens and grounds extending to about three acres together with useful outbuildings

Property Details


A period cottage constructed of brick/part slate clad elevations beneath a slate roof with a substantial extension added during the 1980s of brick under slate.  Whilst the property is a lovely family home currently, there is significant scope for further improvement and extension, subject to all the normal required consents.  The private grounds extend to about three acres and comprise a completely private garden, wooded paddock and an attractive piece of woodland backing onto farmland.  The outbuildings include a large garage and car port, stable block and workshop/home office.

Agent’s Note:  In our opinion the property offers an excellent family home with gardens and grounds providing a wonderful playground for youngsters and space/facilities for pets and ponies with immediate access to surrounding countryside for outriding, walking and cycling.


The property is situated within Wiltshire close to the Hampshire border in a rural setting off a private track on the edge of the village of Sherfield English, located between Salisbury and Southampton with Romsey 6 miles to the east and the New Forest to the South running down to the South Coast.  Sherfield English has a post office/store, public house, church, playing field, village hall and excellent car repair garage.  A particular benefit is also being within the catchment area for the grammar schools in Salisbury.  The surrounding towns of Winchester, Salisbury and Southampton (all within a 30 minute drive) offer excellent public and private schooling as well a comprehensive range of shopping and leisure facilities and mainline railway stations providing services to London.
