What the present owners say:

Jennie and I have lived here for over 40 years, bringing up our family of four boys and enjoying the many blessings of living in Sarisbury. We bought it from the family estate when our Grandfather passed on. He had been born here and then spent his whole life here, growing strawberries! Indeed the house name melds both his and his wife’s birthplace - Hamble + Sarisbury = Hambury!
Over the years the house has evolved and been developed to embrace all our family activities including many sports as well as classic cars and family gatherings. The back lawn has hosted many a football, croquet and badminton tournament! And we have regular visits from the local wild life, including deer!
But - Time for us to move on now - to join our son down in the New Forest so that we can benefit from his care and also join in with his family and their lives.
So this house will suit you particularly if you have either a large family or need multigenerational living, maybe with Mum and Dad or adult children still living at home.
The garages and workshops are ideal for any petrol heads in the family!
And don’t forget the scope for working from home, now suddenly such a sought after feature, which I have been able to enjoy for all these 40 years!
It’s a peaceful, quiet, little spot, close to everything you need for modern life, but with a true country feel.
The house is in good decorative order with a recently refitted kitchen, but no doubt you will want to update decor, carpets, curtains, perhaps two of the bathrooms and maybe extend the existing kitchen to provide the large family living space that is so popular these days.
We very much hope that Hambury will continue to look after another family for another 40 years!
Paul and Jennie
