Agents Comments

“There are so few family homes in a stunning rural setting with outstanding far reaching views across open countryside, Old Orchard is one of the loveliest examples.”


Occupying private grounds of approximately 1/4 acre, Old Orchard is a lovely modern home constructed in 1990 by a well regarded local builder and benefits from particularly sunny and light accommodation with many of its principal rooms featuring multi aspects and double doors to the extensive sun terrace. The property afford generous parking and a double garage with potential for further extension, subject to planning consents.

Landford Wood is a tranquil and picturesque hamlet of a handful of individual homes, surrounded by open farmland. Although rural, it is particularly accessible for commuters, the open New forest, local amenities in its neighbouring village of Landford and is within catchment of excellent local schooling including the revered Salisbury Grammar Schools.


A hardwood and glazed door opens to the spacious hallway where the bright and light aspect to the house is immediately apparent. The hallway accesses the principal rooms in addition to the cloaks cupboard, understairs cupboard and WC. The lounge is of excellent proportions, triple in aspect with double doors opening to the patio and the focal point of a feature brick fireplace with inset woodburning stove. Glazed doors open to the dining room which also accesses the patio via double doors. The kitchen breakfast room is also triple in aspect and is extensively fitted with eye and base level oak units and generous worksurfaces extending into a peninsular breakfast bar with inset gas hob and concealed extractor hood. Cooking facilities are also served by a double oven, small ceramic hob, indoor barbecue and deep fat fryer. Other integrated appliances include a fridge, dishwasher, tumble dryer, washing machine and water softener. The breakfast area is well sized and can accommodate a large dining table and chairs. The kitchen is supplemented by the utility room hosting further storage and space for appliances with a single door to the garden. A study completes the ground floor accommodation.

On the first floor are four double bedrooms, each with fitted wardrobes, served by the impressive family bathroom comprising a four piece suite, wooden vanity units and a separate shower cubicle. The master bedroom suite enjoys its own ensuite four piece bathroom suite, a dressing room hosting twin double wardrobes and a built in dressing table. The views to the rear are delightful, overlooking open countryside.


The property is approached from the private lane via a five bar gate and an extensive stone driveway with parking for many vehicles.

A secure wrought iron gate opens to the splendid south facing rear garden, fully enclosed and predominantly lawned. There is an excellent raised patio, spanning the breadth of the house with a brick built barbecue and wooden store.
