Forest Edge

Over 40% of our Scheme on the Edge of The New Forest Already Matched with Buyers

Off-plan sales are well over the 40% mark at our Forest Edge scheme, which is in the small riverside town of Fordingbridge, known as the northern gateway to The New Forest. Featuring a mix of 63 houses and apartments, the first homes at the highly popular Hampshire scheme should be ready to move into from spring 2023.

The exclusive new development is close to the River Avon, near to the Dorset and Wiltshire borders. Fordingbridge town centre, which features an array of independent bars, restaurants, boutique shops, convenience stores, community and leisure facilities, is less than a mile from the development, which is accessed off Salisbury Road.

Only two homes are still available for sale within the first tranche of Forest Edge, which will be completed in spring 2023. Homes 12 and 13 are both three-bedroom semi-detached houses, each offering 1,012 sq ft of luxury accommodation.

A range of two-bedroom apartments and three- and four-bedroom family homes are newly on release, in advance of build completion dates scheduled for summer and autumn 2023.

David Oakley, our Sales and Marketing Director, said: “The early success of our Forest Edge development is a reflection of how special the opportunity is to live in this highly sought-after riverside town. Fordingbridge offers a range of good schools and The New Forest’s rich tapestry of family attractions and activities. The vibrant neighbourhood is also popular with holiday makers and second homeowners.

“With a range of apartments and family homes available we are receiving enquiries from a wide range of prospective purchasers. There are now only two three-bedroom houses still available for occupation next spring, so we would urge those in the market to contact us as soon as they can.”

The spacious development plan for Forest Edge features two play areas and a purpose-designed dog agility course, all surrounded by mature woodland trees. Footpaths leading to inspiring Forest walks can be joined right from the development boundary. The traditional architecture and red brick elevations of the houses and apartments are inspired by the local vernacular.

The headquarters for the Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust, which runs an annual programme of events and tours, is only a mile from the Forest Edge development. New Forest Water Park is three miles away. Travel beyond Fordingbridge is convenient, with the A338 located within easy reach. Salisbury is 12 miles north, while Southampton is 22 miles to the east. Bournemouth Airport and the coastal towns of Bournemouth and Christchurch are located 18 miles south. A bus stop is conveniently located within a few minutes’ walk of the development.
