Hale Farm is a mellow red brick farmhouse dating from the 17th century on the outskirts of Hale in Hampshire. The property is a traditional family farmhouse approached via a long gravel driveway and has very good family accommodation.

The large family kitchen is the hub of the house and has a four-oven Aga, and the well-proportioned drawing room has excellent views out over the grounds, while the dining room has a charming open fireplace, and direct access to the kitchen. A playroom/study is also a useful versatile space.

Upstairs are six bedrooms, including the master bedroom suite, the guest suite and four further bedrooms, as well as a family bathroom.
