Full Details

Believed to have been built in the 17th Century, Ford Cottage was the farm house for Ford Farm, one of four farms within the Chandler's Ford area during this time. From 1885 until after the Second World War it was farmed by the Fortune family, hence the postal address 'Fortune Court'. The home graces the cover of 'Chandler's Ford, A Pictorial History' and is mentioned/pictured in many other books about the history of the village.

The kitchen is fitted with a range of cupboards and drawers, chest level fitted oven, gas hob with extractor hood over and integral fridge/freezer. A door leads into the conservatory which overlooks the rear garden. The sitting room and dining room are both located at the front of the home and both offer generous living spaces.
