A charming private country house set in 18 acres
Downton Fields is a charming example of a wonderful family home with well-proportioned light-filled rooms. The property provides ample potential.
As you enter the property you are welcomed into a reception hall which provides access to a large proportion of the ground floor as well as the stairs to the first and second floors. There is a lovely drawing room with panoramic views of the garden and grounds and is one of the multiple accesses onto the lovely gardens. The ground floor also has a snug, large study and an open plan kitchen/dining room which leads onto the garden. There is also a large utility/boot room as well as two WCs.
The principal suite is situated on the south western corner of the house which includes a dressing room and bathroom. There is 3 further bedrooms, one of which is en-suite. There is also a family bathroom.
The second floor contains the 5th and 6th bedrooms, a family bathroom and storage which would easily be converted into an additional bedroom.
This property has 18 acres of land.
Downton Fields is approached down a long, private drive that runs through mixed woodland before turning a corner to reveal a stunning view of the house, set among trees. A broad circular gravelled driveway sweeps round in front of the house, and provides extensive parking.
To one side, the driveway leads to a separate brick built garage/workshop and stabling. In addition, the drive provides access to the extensive grounds, approaching 18 acres and surrounding the house which includes a well maintained tennis court and charming walled garden and greenhouse. There is also the remains of an old swimming pool.
From these grounds, the charming aspect of Downton Fields garden elevation can be fully appreciated. Of particular note is the security of the extensive rural views, across Downton Fields own landscape of fields and woodland.
Downton Fields sits in very private and tranquil parkland and country setting, yet New Milton mainline station (direct service to London Waterloo in one hour and 45 minutes) is three miles to the west, and the amenities of the Georgian market town of Lymington, a renowned sailing resort, is a short drive to the east.
From Lymington proceed in a westerly direction on the A337 towards New Milton for nearly four miles. The entrance to Downton Fields is on the right-hand side between Everton and New Milton.
