A covered storm porch provides access into a welcoming front reception room with stone flooring, giving access to all downstairs accommodation and equally stairs to the first floor. Sliding doors separate the living which stretches the length of the house giving double aspect views, herringbone flooring and inset log burner within a brick-built fireplace.

The extended kitchen continues with stone flooring from the hallway with a well-placed and spacious dining area with decorative feature fireplace which then leads into the shaker kitchen area at the end of the room with a variety of low-lying units sat under wooden worksurface which allows for breakfast bar and chairs at the end. The kitchen area sits beautifully under a lantern glass roof allowing for an abundance of natural light throughout with further French doors leading onto the garden.

Stairs from the hallways lead to the first-floor landing where all bedroom accommodation can be found. The principal bedroom sits at the back of the house with double window views over the garden and in-built wardrobes to the side of a stunning brick-built feature fireplace.

Two further double bedrooms are offered to this floor, with all bedrooms serviced by a three-piece bathroom.

Woodlands is a particularly desirable residential area located on the north eastern edge of the New Forest National Park. Within Woodlands there is a public house, village hall and the highly regarded Hotel Terra Vina with a wider range of amenities including shops, schools, public houses and restaurants available in the nearby villages of Ashurst and Lyndhurst. The New Forest offers a wide range of outdoor pursuits and places of interest with the open forest easily accessible for walking and riding.

The city of Southampton to the east provides a comprehensive range of retail and leisure facilities. The property is well located for road and rail. Junction 2 of the M27 motorway links up with the M3 motorway for the M25 and London and the nearby villages of Ashurst and Totton offer direct rail links to London Waterloo.

A gravel drive sits at the front of the property offering off street parking for a few cars and is flanked by planter boarders with an array of hedgerow and mature bushes giving the property a lovely approach.

At the rear of the house there is a larger than average garden with a lovely patio area just off the kitchen with the remaining areas being a lovely, grassed area. Fencing surrounds the garden with large hedging at the back which gives the property a complete element of peacefulness and seclusion. The property is completed with a further outside brick built kitchen area sat on a further lovely patio area and summer house.

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.
