Emery Down is a small village clustered around a hilltop overlooking Swan Green and Lyndhurst, which is approximately one and a half miles to the southeast. The village has a church, village hall and a pub recommended for its good food. Ponies wander through its streets, and the surrounding New Forest offers plenty of superb walking, riding and cycling routes. Southampton, with its bustling centre, excellent shopping and choice of restaurants, cafés and bars, is just eight miles away. Despite its pretty countryside location, Emery Down is well connected by road, with the M27 just five miles away, and Ashurst mainline station, four miles away, providing direct services to London Waterloo (1 hour 35 minutes).

The property is approached across a cattle grid, to a gravel driveway, which leads to a spacious parking area to the front of the house, and then further to the side, to the double garage and other outbuildings. There is a very large barn, a wood store, a workshop, a summer house, hay shed and coal store. The property's walled

south-facing gardens are beautifully presented,

with pristine lawns and mature trees helping to

create a relaxing, peaceful environment. There

are flowerbeds bursting with colour and life,

paved seating areas in which to relax, and a

productive vegetable garden with a greenhouse.

The property has commoners grazing rights,

although it has its own pony paddocks.
