Owners Comments

“We have enjoyed living at Westward House over the past 26 years. The house is spacious and provides flexible accommodation. Our children have now mostly flown the nest so we have decided it is time to downsize.”

“The location provides easy access to local shops, towns and villages and is just a few steps from the New Forest. It is convenient for busses to schools and sixth form colleges in Southampton, Salisbury, Brockenhurst, Romsey and Winchester. It is not unusual to see various wildlife (Hawks, Woodpecker, Hedgehogs, Deer etc) in the garden.”

Introduction

Set back within its beautifully maintained garden, perfectly screened from the thoroughfare, Westward House features four bedrooms on the first floor with three versatile reception rooms, one of which could serve as a ground floor fifth bedroom. Delightfully maintained, each room is of excellent dimensions afforded much natural light yet the property still offers significant scope for further extension if required. Situated in a convenient location in the popular village of Landford with ideal commuter access and in catchment for excellent local schooling, Westward House is just a short stroll from the open New Forest and an array of traditional amenities.

Description

An arched porch leads to the bow- glazed front door which in turn accesses the grand entrance hall featuring oak flooring and a half turn staircase with storage beneath. The kitchen breakfast room has been attractively fitted in a range of oak units with granite worktops extending into a useful breakfast bar. Integrated appliances include an induction hob with hood, double oven and dishwasher. The kitchen is supplemented by a substantial utility room providing further storage and plumbing with a door to the garden. A feature of the house is light and space with all of the rooms being of generous proportions and glazed oak double doors to the principal rooms. The dining room enjoys large sliding patio doors providing views and access to the lovely gardens and can accommodate the largest of dining tables. The lounge is centred upon a brick fireplace with tiled hearth, inset woodburning stove and a bow window to the front south facing perspective creating much natural light. The additional reception room serves as an ideal family room or fifth bedroom if required. The downstairs cloakroom completes the ground floor accommodation.

The landing is equally bright and spacious with double doors opening onto a private balcony. The master suite is impressive, equipped with a host of built in furniture and dressing table served by a walk through dressing room and ensuite bathroom comprising ‘his and hers' sinks, a corner bath with power shower over and WC. The remaining three bedrooms are all of excellent proportions and are served by the family bathroom and a separate shower room.

Outside

The property is approached from the thoroughfare via a private lane and double five bar gates opening onto the extensive brick paviour driveway providing parking for many vehicles and fronting the double garage which offers storage over. The grounds at Westward House are delightful, enjoying much width either side of the property. The rear garden is stunning and particularly private with an extensive patio area adjacent to the house. Predominantly lawned, the garden is beautifully maintained, studded with trees and shrubs and bordered by well stocked borders with specimen flowers and shrubs. There is a large studio, summer house which could also provide a lovely entertainment venue and the timber store is in a discreet courtyard area.
