Outside, the property is accessed through wooden double gates, leading to a substantial shingle driveway accommodating a double garage and providing ample off-road parking. The front garden features a manicured lawn and a charming magnolia tree, while access to the rear garden is available from both sides of the property.

The rear garden offers a tranquil retreat, with a terraced area adjoining the property and a captivating wisteria-clad wall running through its centre. One side of the wall hosts the formal garden, adorned with flower beds and expanses of lawn, while the other half boasts a wooden shed, an orchard area, and is bordered by a mature hedge. Here, you’ll also find the heated swimming pool, adding a touch of luxury to this idyllic outdoor space.


Upon entering, you’re welcomed by a spacious foyer, adorned with a staircase leading to the upper level, a convenient boot room, and a downstairs cloakroom. Transitioning from here, you step into the stunning kitchen/breakfast room, which underwent a full refurbishment just two years ago. This space now exudes elegance and contemporary flair, featuring ample storage cupboards, integrated appliances including fridge, freezer, and dishwasher, along with provision for a range master. Glass doors provide access to the rear garden, while an adjoining pantry offers further storage space and laundry facilities.

On the opposite side of the entrance hall, the luminous dining room awaits, offering dual aspect views of the property’s surroundings and access to the rear garden through glass doors. Adjacent to this is the inviting sitting room, boasting a cozy log burner and an abundance of natural light pouring in through its double aspect windows. Continuing seamlessly from here, the garden room leads to the conservatory and study, offering versatile spaces for relaxation and work. Additionally, on this level, you’ll find a generously sized drawing room, currently utilised as a media room, complete with ample storage and an additional cloakroom.

Ascending to the first floor, five spacious bedrooms await, each offering delightful views over the rear garden and beyond. The principal suite is a haven of comfort, featuring ample storage, dual aspect windows, and a fully fitted ensuite comprising a walk-in shower, twin sinks, a low-level WC, and a luxurious freestanding bathtub. The remaining bedrooms are serviced by the family shower room, which is positioned at the end of the hall and comprises a spacious shower cubicle, hand wash basin and WC.

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.
