8 bedroom property for sale

Guide price £2,750,000

The Avon Farm House Estate is a truly magnificent Grade II listed Country Estate, with development potential, spanning in excess of 10,000 SqFt inclusive of outbuildings, with river views, on a parkland like setting of approximately 3 acres. Offered for sale with no onward chain.

Situated within the New Forest National Park, between the market towns of Ringwood and Christchurch, The Avon Farm House Estate offers an incredible blend of coastal and country living. A beautiful stretch of coastline is just over six miles south, featuring Avon Beach, Mudeford Quay, Christchurch Quay and Town Centre, with its various bars, pubs, restaurants and historic 11th Century Priory, Hengistbury Head and a continued stretch of blue flag sandy beaches of Bournemouth. Plenty of forest walks and public footpaths are close-by, with a brilliant selection of local pubs, one specifically to note is The New Queen, just a two-minute walk away.

Christchurch railway station provides a mainline commute to London and Bournemouth Airport offers a range of European and some International flights. The A31 is easily accessible, providing fast access to the M27 and M3 motorways for commuting. Ports at Poole and Portsmouth provide links to France and the Channel Islands.

Entranced via a sweeping driveway into the courtyard, the imposing Avon Farm House Estate is steeped in character and charm. Currently divided into multiple properties, the Estate consists of the following:

The Farm House
Situated centrally in the plot, the Farm House exudes character and charm, with beautiful far-reaching South-Westerly views across the River Avon. The Ground Floor comprises dining room, kitchen, two studies, WC, sitting room, conservatory, and a living room, with a beautiful inglenook fireplace. The First-floor surmises five large double bedrooms, the main bedroom featuring a bright triple aspect with fantastic views, and three bathrooms.

The Dairy House
The Dairy House is a picturesque cottage, with kitchen, living area and WC to the ground floor, and three bedrooms served by a family bathroom to the first floor.

The Coach House, The Stable, Shelter Shed, Barn and West Range.
Providing extensive external storage, outbuildings, and potential for ancillary accommodation, planning permission was granted in 2020 (ref 18/11595) for conversion of the West Range Barn to a 3 bedroom single storey dwelling (approx. 1650 sq ft) and the stable to a further 2 bedroom dwelling (approx. 1400 ft sq).) to be used in as an annex to the main house. This consent has since expired and a further application has been submitted for renewal (ref 23/10037) and it is anticipated the property will be sold with this consent. It is also considered that it may be possible to remove the restriction for the stable to be used as an annex and further there is the possibility that the Coach House could be converted to a separate dwelling, but no assurance can be given, and a purchaser should not rely on any further development other than that in the application currently under consideration.

Externally to the rear of the Farm House, is a South-Westerly facing patio and lawns down to the pond, and onto the River Avon. We believe the grounds to extend to approximately three acres.

N.B. The South Field is being retained by the current family. Further information available on request.
