About the property
TWO BEDROOM TOP FLOOR APARTMENT.
Highfield Hall is a fine example of a late Victorian residence which we believe was built in the late 1860's by a local milling magnet, Josiah Reynolds Neave, as his family home. The Neave family were well known and respected in the area as they owned a large milling business in the town which gave much needed employment to the community. In addition to their milling interest they were pioneers of baby products whose patrons included the Russian Royal Family.
Highfield House, as it was originally known, became a cottage hospital in 1948 and when it ceased being used for this purpose it was turned into a nursing home. Skilfully converted in 2002 Highfield Hall comprises a high quality development of eight apartments and a two storey maisonette by Cranbrook Homes (Southern) Limited.
Highfield Hall enjoys a delightful rural location approximately a mile or so west of the Avon town of Fordingbridge and is approached through an impressive gated entrance. The converted country house stands in delightful parkland surroundings of approximately 3.75 acres with many mature indigenous trees.
Highfield Hall is accessed from the Fordingbridge/Alderholt Road (B3078) through a pillared entrance with remote electrically operated wrought iron gates with intercom phone. A sweeping gravelled drive flanked by lawns with mature trees leads up to the building. There are allocated parking spaces for each apartment together with a generous number of visitor spaces. The extensive gardens and communal grounds extend to about 3.75 acres and are maintained within the annual maintenance charge.
Nearby Fordingbridge provides excellent local facilities including a variety of specialist shops, a building society, public library and churches of various denominations. There is an excellent medical centre together with infant, junior and secondary schools.
6 Highfield Hall is a most elegant apartment with high plain plastered ceilings and the benefit of its own roof terrace. The accommodation comprises a generous size entrance hall, dual aspect sitting room with doors opening to the roof terrace, well equipped luxury kitchen with integrated appliances, two very large double bedrooms with fitted wardrobes and en suite bathroom to the master bedroom and ?Juliet balcony to bedroom 2, and family shower room.
A particular feature of the property is the magnificent private terrace which provides a wealth of outside space and glorious views over the private grounds and countryside views beyond.
