Situated in the peaceful village of Hordle and being close to the local shops and school, this five bedroom property offers five bedrooms, ample off-road parking and a garage, as well as a generous garden and a paddock. Forming part of the original country home which was commissioned to be built by Admiral William Cornwallis in around 1815, Arnewood House is an intriguing example of 'Strawberry' Gothic Pre-Georgian architecture and enjoys many period features including high ceilings and open fireplaces.

Patio steps with an outside light and wrought iron railings on both sides lead to the double wooden doors with obscure leaded picture windows to the side and above. This then leads into the entrance hall with a delightful lunar window, picture tiled marble flooring and a double Victorian style storage cupboard. To the right of this there is a cloakroom comprising a WC and wash basin. Leading off from the hall to the left is the dual aspect kitchen/breakfast room which is fitted with a range of Shaker style floor and wall mounted units including a plate display cabinet, double built-in larder cupboard, space for a fridge/freezer, space for an oven, space/plumbing for a dishwasher, one-and-a-half bowl stainless steel sink and drainer with ample wooden work surfaces. There is a fitted window seat with storage below and an ornate serving hatch to the hall. The dining room enjoys part wooden and glazed double doors which provide access to the rear garden and paved patio with matching wooden blinds and an ornate wooden fire surround with open fire and matching hearth and back, as well as double door built-in storage cupboard to the side and natural wood flooring. The intriguing sitting room enjoys three wooden and double glazed double doors giving access to the garden and terrace, marble fire surround with wrought iron battier and an open fireplace, again with natural wooden flooring.

The staircase leads up to the mezzanine/landing where there is double door built-in cupboards for books or displaying ornaments and there is a study/bedroom leading off from here. The fabulous main bedroom enjoys three part wooden and double glazed double opening doors, each individually opening out onto the Juliet balcony which overlooks the delightful gardens with paddocks beyond. There is also marble fire surround with wrought iron back hearth and a triple built-in wardrobe. Bedroom two has part wooden and double glazed windows to the rear and a range of built-in wardrobes, as well as an en suite shower room which comprises a WC, vanity unit with wash basin and cupboards below, a walk-in shower enclosure and wall mounted ladder style radiator. Adjacent to this is the family bathroom which comprises obscured picture windows to the front, WC with concealed cistern, wall mounted wash basin and panelled bath with Victorian style mono taps and wall mounted shower over, further double radiator with adjacent towel rail.

A further staircase then leads up to the second floor landing where the third bedroom is situated and this benefits from having an en suite shower room comprising a WC with concealed cistern, corner mounted wash basin and walk-in shower cubicle with handheld shower. A further wooden spiral staircase then leads up to the loft room which has two Velux windows to the side and access to the eaves with a recessed storage area, as well as a further en suite shower room.

The property is accessed via a courtyard area which has been laid to shingle for ease of maintenance and provides off-road parking for several cars. There is a single garage to the middle/side which is conveyed with the property and accessed by stone steps to a basement which runs under part of the property and could provide additional storage or accommodation (STPP) if so required. The formal rear garden is enclosed on both sides and to the rear, in part by timber fencing and mature hedging. There is a paved terrace adjacent to the sitting and dining rooms and the rest of the garden is laid to lawn and stocked with a variety of mature shrubs, trees and bushes. A patio and path leads to the end of the garden which has access to a wrought iron gate leading out to a paddock which measures approximately an acre; ideal for a small pony, an additional garden or small holding.
