A rare opportunity to acquire a property with land in this renowned and popular location. Hound Nurseries, as the name suggests, was formerly a nursey and market garden and was utilised for growing a wide variety of fruits and crops. More latterly the owners have run a small farm shop from the property and a small camping and touring caravan site. The property also has scope for a wide variety of other uses including private equestrian and many others subject to necessary planning permissions being obtained.

The bungalow was built around 1990 and in October 2021 the Agricultural Tie was removed. The extensive range of self-built outbuildings are in need of updating, and the bungalow itself would benefit from some internal modernisation.

Hound Nurseries is set well back from the road which leads down into Hamble Village which has a range of amenities including, local public houses and restaurants and a good secondary school. It lies alongside the beautiful River Hamble which is now a mecca for those who have an interest in many types of boat and water sports. There are lovely river walks for birdwatchers and nature lovers as well as fishing opportunities, boat trips, windsurfing, cycling, golf and horse riding.  The Royal Victoria Country Park also lies nearby and has lovely walking areas and scope for other sports. The property is also readily accessible to Southampton to the north and the M27 motorway (junction 3).
