The ground floor is accessed via a porch entrance that in turn leads into the main hallway with stairs leading to the first floor. At the front of the property as you enter the hallway are two separate living rooms that are ideally versatile for a more formal living room and possibly a study or play for the other with the second reception room also giving you access to the grounds via a single door.
Continuing through the hallway you find a downstairs shower room/cloak room which sits opposite the door that then leads you into a beautiful country style kitchen which offers ample storage through both low lying and eye level units. A further separate utility room sits at the end of the kitchen with a further single door leading to the garden.
Leading from the kitchen is a particular feature of the house as you are greeted with a fantastic, vaulted ceiling living/family room with floor to ceiling windows, exposed brickwork walls, wood beamed roof, further Velux windows and French doors leading onto the gardens which floods this room with stunning natural light. All rooms to the ground floor as you walk through afford the luxury of wooden beam ceilings and character features throughout.
Stairs from the main hallway leads to the first-floor landing to four main bedrooms with family bathroom. The main bedroom sits at the end of the house with an adjoining room that could ideally be used as a dressing room and further access to a mezzanine gallery overlooking the sitting room and also giving access to a three-piece en suite.
The property is approached via a long track from the Romsey Road and is set within 3.5 acres of land offering both garden and paddocks giving the house both a great family feel and equestrian route.

The property is located adjacent to the M27 beyond the far rear boundary behind a high bank.
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.
