Off the hallway is the living room, kitchen and access to the first floor accommodation and includes under stairs storage plus an additional built in storage cupboard. The L-shaped living room, dining area and kitchen are of lovely proportions with a bright and airy feel from the large double aspect windows and French style doors off the dining area leading to the rear garden. There is a wonderful penguin wood burner with integrated small oven above situated in the corner of the living room giving a great focal point.

The kitchen comprises Neff oven with sliding drawer beneath and Neff induction hob with extractor over. Plenty of storage throughout with space for freestanding fridge/freezer and dishwasher. A breakfast bar complements the kitchen giving further work surface and additional storage beneath.

To the far end of the kitchen sits the utility, offering further storage, a further stainless steel sink with drainer and space for the washer/dryer. Access to the rear garden and loft hatch above to a small loft space. From the utility a small hall leads to the downstairs shower room with three piece white suite which acts as an en-suite to a superb size ground floor bedroom with views over the side garden and across the adjoining paddock.

There is a family bathroom including WC, wash basin and bath with shower over which completes the first floor.

The popular village of Bartley is situated within the boundaries of the New Forest National Park offering acres of beautiful countryside to enjoy. A wide range of amenities are close at hand including Bartley junior school, village hall, shop, hairdressers and local pubs. A large superstore is located within three miles with Lyndhurst, Totton and Ashurst nearby providing further amenities. The M27 is less than 3 miles away providing fast road links to London, the South Coast and beyond. Mainline rail links can be found at either Totton or Ashurst with direct services to London Waterloo.

The property is set in a quiet corner plot of a residential cul-de-sac with parking to the front for multiple cars and a single detached garage. The garden is mainly laid to lawn and sits to the rear and side of the property with beds stocked with beautiful shrubs and flowers.

To the rear is a superb vegetable patch and a greenhouse and seating area to the side. The stable is timber built and is positioned near the entrance to the paddock for ease of access. The paddock is fenced with post and rail and bordered with mature trees to one side.

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.
