A wonderful elevated and mature plot of approximately 0.25 acres and a beautiful, peaceful and tranquil location, are just a couple of features of this stunning Grade II Listed thatched cob cottage.

Keepers Cottage sits comfortably at the front of its mature and private plot which is in excess of 0.25 acres with informal lawns that slope upwards from the cottage to the rear of the plot, affording simply breath-taking elevated and far reaching views.

It has been respectfully and sympathetically improved by the current owner and is being offered for sale in excellent condition (in our opinion). Some of these improvements include a new combed wheat read thatch in 2019 and electrical re-wiring in 2018.

Both bedrooms are snug doubles and served by a crisp white modern family bathroom while the ground floor comprises a fabulous cosy sitting room/snug with feature Inglenook fireplace. A sympathetically fitted farmhouse style kitchen/dining room completes the ground floor.

This fine home further benefits from oil fired central heating, LPG gas hob and shared sceptic tank drainage and no forward chain.

Located within the grounds and a very useful addition to the space in the cottage is a converted stable which is used as ancillary accommodation, either an additional bedroom, study or studio (has certificate of lawful use) with bathroom. There is also an outbuilding/utility room with a sink, plumbing for a washing machine and a separate WC, this useful area could serve a variety of purposes such as a home office or music room. The remainder of the grounds are laid to lawn with established flower and shrub beds, trees and hedging with numerous private seating areas.

To the front is a driveway providing parking for a few cars. A picket fence and path leads to the enclosed front porch.

Keepers Cottage is ideally situated in the desirable location of Frogham which is on the north westerly edge of the New Forest National Park which is well known for outdoor pursuits such as walking, riding, and mountain biking. Within a short distance is the village centre which has an excellent local public house known as The Foresters and there is also the village hall and cricket green. The adjacent village of Hyde has a highly reputable primary school and a popular Garden Centre with tea rooms. Fordingbridge is a short drive away which is a small market town and has many amenities which include a post office, gourmet grocers, butchers, Italian restaurant, Cinema (The Regal) doctors, dentists, cottage hospital and a range of other shops.
