A wonderful grade II listed home situated in the village of Breamore with unspoilt views over the water meadows.

Willow & Marshgate is a Grade II listed property and was originally four workers cottages which date back to the 17th Century.

The property is available with no forward chain.

Locals recall that at one time it housed the village school. Sold by the Breamore Estate into private ownership in the late twentieth century, in recent years the property has undergone extensive renovation to create a lovely family home finished to a very high standard. Many of the original period features have been retained including a large inglenook fireplace and flint walls.

The front door opens on to a light entrance hall with a Victorian fireplace. The cosy kitchen is the heart of this pretty home. The twin burner Rayburn is a range oven and also fires the hot water and central heating systems. The solid oak floor, hand-built kitchen and Belfast sink add further character to this room. A pantry/utility
room leads through to a downstairs shower room.

A further feature room of this house is the sitting room. Central to this room is an impressive inglenook fireplace with a recently installed Clearview wood-burning stove and original bread oven.

A quirky addition, installed by Dalbergia Cabinetmakers of Fordingbridge, is a hidden cupboard cleverly built to look like a book case.
The study has been fitted with a handmade desk and shelving, also by Dalbergia, and boasts beautiful views over the marsh. The back door opens on to a boot room with flagstone floors and plenty of hanging space.

In the south wing of the property there is a particularly light and airy dining room for a property of this age, looking up the pretty garden and over to the rolling countryside beyond.

A downstairs family bathroom, serving bedrooms 3 and 4, complete with central egg-shaped bath and
underfloor heating, completes the accommodation on the ground floor.

On the first floor, there is a dual aspect master bedroom with a walk in wardrobe, four further bedrooms and a family bathroom. All the bedrooms have good ceiling heights and
wonderful views.

Willow & Marshgate is situated in the centre of the pretty and private acre plot of around one point four acres. The garden is largely laid to lawn, bordered by established trees and shrubs providing the perfect space to entertain or children to play. To the rear of the house is a large south-westerly facing terrace that makes the
most of the afternoon and evening sun. Part of the garden has recently been planted to create an orchard with a variety of fruit trees, including
apples, pears, mulberries, walnuts and gooseberries. To the rear of the garden is a wooden garden shed.

Willow & Marshgate is approached through a wooden gate to a graveled area with ample parking in front of a double garage with adjoining
wood store.

From Salisbury, take the A338 towards Downton and Bournemouth. Continue to follow the A338 for
approximately 8 miles. Shortly after entering Breamore, turn right opposite the Village Hall. Follow the road around the water meadows for a third of a mile and Willow and Marshgate is the first thatched house on the left.

From Woodgreen or Ringwood, after entering the village go past The Bat and Ball on your right, take the next left turn opposite the Village Hall and
proceed as above.

Location
Willow & Marshgate is situated in the pretty and sought after village of Breamore in the Avon Valley. The property has views over Breamore Marsh, a manorial green which is a Site of Special Scientific Interest, home to protected species of flora, grazed by a flock of geese, and also home to the village cricket team in the summer. Breamore
lies to the east of the Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the boundary of the New Forest National Park runs through the village, although the property itself is just outside the park. There is therefore easy access to the facilities of the national park.

The popular village of Breamore has an active village community with the Hulse Hall hosting a number of social events monthly. The village pub, The Bat and Ball, is a pleasant walk from the
property and the Woodgreen Community shop and Post Office is five or so minutes away by car.
