About Apartment 11, Northerwood House, Emery Down
A spectacular south facing first floor apartment extending to some 1900 square feet with a balcony and an amazing roof garden. Northerwood House is superbly converted Grade II mansion and occupies one of the finest positions in the New Forest. We believe this to be a unique opportunity to acquire a very special property.
Proceed around the one way system and take the sign-posted route to Christchurch. Turn left, following the road towards Christchurch then take a right-hand turning by the cricket pitch. Proceed to the brow of the hill and then take a right-hand turning towards Northerwood House. Please observe the speed limit and parking can be found opposite the building. Apartment 11 can be accessed via the door on the left hand side.
Northerwood House is a stunning Grade II mansion, sensitively converted into spacious apartments at the end of a long private driveway. It is situated in an elevated position in Emery Down and has magnificent panoramic views over the New Forest and to the Isle of Wight beyond. This specific apartment benefits from a wealth of accommodation including three bedrooms, a separate dining room and a superb drawing room. Enhanced by high ceilings and large windows offering grandeur from a bygone era. The amazing vistas can be enjoyed from the windows and private balcony, which is accessed from both the drawing room and master bedroom. A jewel of this apartment is the private roof garden which offers a high level of privacy and tranquillity.
This south facing apartment takes advantage of the well maintained stunning communal gardens and the New Forest beyond. With the benefit of a double garage, apartments such as this, which blend the level of accommodation and private outdoor space, are seldom available on the open market. We recommend an internal inspection to appreciate this unique opportunity.
