About the property
Set within a majestic plot of approximately 3 acres is this wonderful detached family home providing spacious accommodation that offers a degree of versatility and multi-generational living capacity. The property enjoys an idyllic and tranquil setting within park like grounds, with far reaching views over open fields from every angle the majority of which have a southerly aspect. The centre piece of this stunning home is the 21'9" x 20'2" sitting room open plan to the 28'5" x 18'9" kitchen/dining space, complemented by a further sitting room, snug, study, bathroom, utility and cloakroom to the ground floor as well as 3 bedrooms. The main bedroom suite on the first floor provides spectacular panoramic views and a walk in wardrobe and en-suite, together with 2 further double bedrooms and bathroom. Within the grounds are substantial outbuildings which subject to the normal consents could lend themselves to a number of uses to include stabling for equestrian enthusiasts or homeworking. The double garage is of cavity construction, insulated with a storage room over. Positioned at the end of a private track Buddys Barn is very much part of the picturesque village of Ampfield which itself benefits from a local Public House, Ampfield Golf & Country Club, Church, Village Hall and Local School.
