Thought to have been built in the 1950’s the property offers generous rooms with high ceilings and features befitting of the era.

The entrance leads into a generous hallway with stairs leading up to the first floor and herringbone style flooring and a cloakroom is set off this area.

A dining room is set to one side with front splay bay windows with a chimney breast and which could be utilised as a fourth bedroom.

The herringbone style flooring runs through to a well fitted kitchen set at the rear of the property with side aspect windows and a range of shaker style units at base and wall level with coordinating worksurfaces and a useful pantry cupboard. Built in appliances include an induction hob and built under oven with space and plumbing for a dishwasher and fridge/freezer.

From here a door leads into a large conservatory with extensive glazing affording views across the rear and French doors lead out to the garden. The conservatory links into the sitting room via double doors.

The sitting room features a central fireplace with wood burning stove set on a brick hearth with wooden mantel above and benefits from wooden flooring.

The first floor landing is a good size with eaves storage and airing cupboard and large stair window and gives access to the three double bedrooms and family bathroom.

Bedroom one is set to the rear with elevated views across the garden and eaves storage with bedroom two set at the front of the property, again a good sized double room whilst bedroom three is set at the rear and currently houses a sauna which will be disposed of by the seller.

The bathroom offers a bath with shower fitments set over, along with a WC and wash hand basin.

Agents Note:

We understand there is lapsed planning for a double storey rear extension.

The rear garden is a particular feature of the property, predominantly laid to lawn with mature shrubs, trees and planting to borders and feature beds.

Immediately abutting the property there is a gravelled area ideal for seating with path that leads to the lawned areas, a further paved seating area and extensive outbuildings which include a detached garage, tool shed, storage shed and large detached barn.

To the front of the property there is extensive parking for several cars set back from the road.

Living in Minstead

Minstead is a perfect village in miniature. Tucked down a maze of country lanes and surrounded by woodland, it is tranquil and unspoiled, yet surprisingly and accessibly close to junction one of the M27 at Cadnam.

For a small village it punches well above its size in terms of community and history. Overlooking its delightful green is a popular country inn, The Trusty Servant Inn, and a village shop and cafe tea room that serves as a community hub. There’s also a quirky parish church which is the resting place of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, creator of Sherlock Holmes. Nearby are what are thought to be two of the oldest oak trees in the Forest as well as the Rufus Stone, marking the spot where King William II was shot by an arrow.

There’s a busy village hall (the largest in the Forest) which hosts regular antiques and collectors’ markets and the Minstead Players. However, what makes Minstead particularly special are its community-minded organisations including Minstead Study Centre with its sustainability focus and Minstead Training Trust which also runs Furzey Gardens - first planted in 1922 they are ablaze with colour in spring and feature an award-wining garden and ‘fairy doors’ among the trees.
