A versatile family house with a lovely partly walled garden in a private close and edge of village setting.

THE PROPERTY Maple House is a well planned family home with great living space located on the edge of the village in a small private close. The house has three main reception rooms, with the study/family room opening off the generous kitchen/breakfast room and doors out into the garden, providing good day to day living area. The dining room, sitting room and conservatory provide versatile entertaining space and there is a lovely aspect looking into the beautiful garden from the conservatory. Upstairs the five bedrooms are set off a central landing with an en suite bathroom to the main bedroom. There are plenty of fitted cupboards for handy storage.

OUTSIDE An outer area of shared drive leads to a private entrance to the house with plenty of parking and double garage. There are shrubs providing mature screening to the front with access either side of the house to the partly walled rear garden which is a delight. Landscaped in tiers, there is an extensive area of level lawn behind the house with a paved terrace and steps up to raised borders and a vegetable area. There is a wilder area of lightly wooded garden which is gently sloping incorporating some beautiful trees (several of which have TPOs) underplanted with spring bulbs. A useful gate opens off the back corner of the garden to a rear footpath which leads to other parts of the village. Overall it is a garden which provides an interesting outlook to the house throughout the seasons but as well as great space for children or keen gardeners to enjoy. In all about 0.7 of an Acre (0.285 Ha).

LOCATION Droxford is a lovely village community well positioned in the lower Meon Valley and within the South Downs National Park. There are excellent amenities in the village including a post office/village store, several pubs, doctors' surgery, local filling station with convenience store, active church, several social and sports clubs, Montessori school and well regarded junior school. The River Meon meanders through the eastern side of the village and to the west unspoilt rolling farmland. There are many footpaths in the area for anyone who enjoys walking and the Meon valley bicycle trail follows the old railway line connecting Wickham to West Meon, which can also be walked.

The old market towns of Wickham and Bishops Waltham are within easy reach with their wider range of local amenities and shops. There are educational choices in the independent sector with Boundary Oak and Portsmouth Grammar School locally and further afield Petersfield is just over 13 miles and has a mainline station with train services to London Waterloo. The larger centres of Winchester, Portsmouth and Southampton are also all within reasonable driving distance and the M27 locally gives easy access to the Solent and the South Coast as well as links to the A3 and M3.
