Set within approximately half an acre and surrounded by glorious countryside, Pepperbox House is a detached period house with a classic brick and flint façade. Having originally been two farm cottages, dating from around 1850, it is now a spacious, well planned house, retaining many original features and character.
Carefully updated, the house forms a perfect family home with well proportioned accommodation including five bedrooms, and excellent reception space, balanced by generous gardens and grounds that extend to about half an acre. The added benefit of a separate office offers ideal work from home space or the possibility of creating a separate annexe (subject to the necessary consents).
Set at the head of a private lane, the house occupies an attractive elevated setting with views across gardens and paddocks to the New Forest beyond.
Well presented and full of natural light, the accommodation leads from the central entrance hall and includes a fine Sitting Room which features an attractive open fireplace and casement door to the garden. With a beamed ceiling, mellow parquet flooring and open plan Study area, it forms a perfect room for entertaining and conveniently leads to the separate Dining Room.
There is a third reception room in the form of a Playroom / Snug which makes for an ideal family room and offers further flexibility to the living space.
The Kitchen/Breakfast Room is light and bright and has been fitted with a comprehensive range of cream units, including a matching dresser and there is plenty of room for a generous table and chairs. Fully equipped with Britannia electric range style cooker and integrated appliances including refrigerator, freezer and dishwasher, there is also a large larder cupboard.
An inner hallway gives access to the downstairs cloakroom, a lobby area acts as a boot room and the utility room offers further appliance space.
On the first floor, all five bedrooms have built in storage and enjoy lovely views, with the large Master Bedroom having the benefit of en-suite bathroom; there is a family bathroom including a separate shower cubicle.
A curved drive leads through the grounds to the house, which is set well back into the plot, looking out over spacious lawns and beautifully planted borders. With ample private parking and turning space, the original garage has been converted to an extremely useful, detached Office. With light and power connected, there is loft storage space and potential to convert to an annexe (subject to the necessary consents).
The Gardens are a feature of the property, mature and well stocked, adjoining countryside and private land, they surround the house and provide a wonderfully verdant backdrop. Sweeping lawns are backed by established hedges and trees, whilst flowering and evergreen shrubs and herbaceous planting provides colour and interest throughout the seasons.

Central to the garden is an enclosed swimming pool and terrace which enjoys the south facing aspect and is heated via solar matting.
