If you are moving house, looking to start a new life in Hale or retiring to Hale, we can help you.
Right on the edge of the New Forest National Park lies a little gem of a village, with a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and a Conservation Area right at its heart.
Hale has an extraordinary array of protected stuff to its name.
Most noticeably there’s a village green at the centre, which was adopted by the parish council in 1975 when no owner could be found for it.
The green is often grazed by wild ponies and is surrounded by pretty thatched cottages. It is here you will find the modern village hall next to the Victorian school building, home to the flourishing and very successful Hale Primary School.
Nearby there is a modern sculpture created to mark the Millennium.
Lying partly along the River Avon and partly on the Hampshire/Wiltshire border, Hale is a scattered community with the centre of the village being Hatchet Green. This delightful open space is enjoyed by residents and visitors alike.
Other notable landmarks in the village are Hale Park House, rebuilt in about 1715, St Mary’s Church and Hale Purlieu, a stunning common in the New Forest, owned and managed by The National Trust. There are 260 properties within the parish boundary and a population of approximately 470.
Hale House is a large 18th century mansion which was the country house of architect Thomas Archer, who also rebuilt Hale church in 1717.
The house, which sits in the gorgeous Hale Park estate, is now a popular venue for weddings, meetings and other occasions.
In 1631 the classical architect Inigo Jones was commissioned by Sir John Penruddock to remodel the medieval church or St Mary’s in Hale as a Tuscan temple along the lines of St Paul’s, Covent Garden. It has long been suspected that the church was Jones’s, but the proof was only recently discovered by Kate Bennett in a manuscript in the Bodleian Library recording a Latin inscription in the hands of the Penruddock family attributing the church to Jones.
Next to Hale is the National Trust common of Hale Purlieu. Hale Purlieu is an area of heath and valley bog with typical flora and fauna. It was for centuries outside of the New Forest – the word ‘purlieu’ means an area which has been “disafforested” and is not subject to forest law. It was brought within the boundary and the Verderers’ jurisdiction under the New Forest Act of 1964 (the Verderers are the ancient court of the Forest).
Properties in Hale had an overall average price of £420,400 over the last year.
The majority of sales in Hale during the last year were detached properties, selling for an average price of £395,500. Semi-detached properties sold for an average of £520,000.
Overall, sold prices in Hale over the last year were 4% up on the previous year and 38% down on the 2008 peak of £677,500.
This is an active village despite its small size, with a primary school, village hall and clubs and societies.
