A fine detached, character home on the edge of the popular village of Whiteparish with wonderful views of open countryside. New Manor Farmhouse sits wonderfully in its grounds and enjoys a feeling of space and privacy whilst not being isolated.
This pretty, brick built house enjoys a wealth of character features typical of its period (built in 1909) including ornate fireplaces and high ceilings. The house can be accessed by both a central front door into the impressive and spacious entrance hall or for convenience via the utility/boot room straight from the driveway. The ground floor accommodation has every eventuality catered for with both formal dining and entertaining rooms as well as a comfortable kitchen/breakfast room and an Amdega conservatory from which to enjoy the gardens and views beyond. There is a wonderful feeling of natural light as you move around the home, helped by the sizeable, and attractive wood windows and further enhanced by the wonderful roof lantern on the first floor giving a further feeling of space and openness. The four large bedrooms all enjoy excellent views. The cellar, accessible from the hallway and via an external staircase, is a good space for day-to-day storage as well as a suitable wine store.
Whiteparish is an active and thriving village, and its location midway between Salisbury, Romsey and Southampton make it one of the most sought after villages on the Hampshire/Wiltshire border. The village has a popular Primary school (rated 'Outstanding' by Ofsted 2013), a shop/Post Office, doctors surgery with dispensing pharmacy and two pubs (The Parish Lantern and The King's Head). Proximity to Salisbury and Romsey mean more amenities and services are close at hand.
The area is well known for its excellent selection of schools at all levels. Whiteparish is within the catchment area for South Wilts and Bishops Wordsworth Grammar schools in Salisbury and private school options are a plenty and include Norman Court, Farleigh, Hampshire Collegiate School, as well as The Godolphin School, Chafyn Grove and The Cathedral School in Salisbury. Communication links are also excellent with good road access to Salisbury and Romsey. Whiteparish has a regular bus service to Salisbury and Southampton, and is further supported by a range of specialist school buses in the weekday, term time mornings and evenings.
Easy access on to the A36 brings Southampton and the other business centres along the M27/M3 corridors within easy reach and Salisbury and Southampton have fast, regular trains into London Waterloo.
Beautiful gardens of approximately two thirds of an acre surround the house with open views beyond, giving a wonderful feeling of space in the pretty Wiltshire countryside. A tarmac driveway, leading to the spacious garages and workshop, offers ample parking for several cars and is gated from the road. A terrace leads to the day-to-day entrance to the rear of the house. The main door is approached by a tiled pathway and the house is set back from its country lane with sizeable mixed hedging. Attractive planting in the gardens give a wonderful sense of care to the grounds over many years with established borders against the house itself and across the garden, along with interspersed, mature trees. There is a wildflower meadow style area to the rear, a productive vegetable garden and a lovely level lawn for garden games.
