Emery Down is one of the New Forest National Park’s most sought after villages, with its vibrant community, a village hall, a pub (The New Forest Inn), and church. Lyndhurst is within two miles and is a popular tourist location with many independent shops, art galleries, cafés, restaurants, pubs and hotels.

For those with a keen eye on sailing Lymington is within ten miles with its attractive local architecture and popular marina. Southampton is a vibrant, modern city which has the popular West Quay shopping centre and many attractions.

The surrounding areas of Southampton and Winchester have a wide selection of well respected private schools. Transport links are excellent with east and west access to the M27 and M3 within easy reach. This provides access to London and the south coast. The coastal resort town of Bournemouth is also only a short drive away.

The spectacular reception hall sets the tone for this wonderful home with, at its centre, the beautiful French polished turning staircase leading to the galleried landing above. A Chesneys fireplace and elegant tiled floor by Artisans of Devizes exude a welcoming sense of calmness. This feel has been expertly continued through the entire house with high ceilings and elegant flooring being a common feature. The main living room includes a fireplace at its heart and a deep bay with French doors leading to the principal gardens. The adjacent sitting room is currently used as a snooker/pool room, with fireplace and two sets of French doors.

The kitchen/dining/conservatory area is the hub of the home and is a fantastic area to socialise and entertain. The kitchen has been meticulously planned and hand crafted for living, relaxing and entertaining by world renowned Smallbone. The hand painted kitchen includes streamlined storage solutions. The central island unit boasts granite worktops and includes a 4-ring induction hob, ceiling extractor, two gas rings and a bar stool seating area. All of the kitchen appliances are by Gaggenau, and include two integrated self-cleaning ovens, two plate warmer draws, coffee machine, microwave oven grill and a double fridge/freezer, two wine fridges, and a dishwasher. There are four integrated pantries designed to keep clutter in the kitchen to a minimum along with a Quooker hot water tap and a filtered water tap. The conservatory area features impressive high vaulted ceilings filling the entire space with natural light whilst providing a delightful outlook and direct access over the gardens.

Returning to the hallway, there is an office with an outlook to the front of the property and an impressive cinema room, beyond which is a utility, separate W.C. and a triple garage with electric doors. The garage and utility room both provide direct access to the garden and there is a useful ‘gardeners W.C’ in the garage.

The property has been thoughtfully designed for modern living with a ‘Control 4’ smart home operating system, HIK Vision security cameras, integrated ceiling speakers, Cat 5 enabled and underfloor heating to the ground floor.

The staircase leads to the first floor where there is a spacious galleried landing overlooking the entrance hallway. The master bedroom suite is an impressive room with fabulous views over the garden from the Juliette balcony and a particularly generous en-suite bathroom. This bathroom has been designed by ‘Dream Design’ and includes Antonio Lupi bathroom furnishings including a double sink basin, freestanding bath, W.C, and a walk in rainfall shower.

There are a total of 7 bedrooms, two of which are currently used as ‘his & hers’ walk-in wardrobes which were designed by Dream Design. Bedroom two is located above the garage and offers a particularly flexible space which could become a self-contained apartment benefiting from the close proximity of the second staircase leading to the ground floor hallway and a second front door entrance.

The House In The Trees is a stunning family home designed by the architect Michael Warren ARIBA. It is set within beautiful gardens providing a peaceful sanctuary within the trees. It offers expansive accommodation which has been exceptionally well considered; providing superb reception rooms including a magnificent drawing room with deep bay and attractive central fireplace, a most elegant room with high ceilings and lots of light. The dining room is equally impressive, again with extremely generous proportions with high ceiling and attractive cornicing. A further area to the house which lends itself to fine family living is the kitchen/breakfast room which measures 45′ x 15′ 5” and is a particularly useful space for everyday living and entertaining. Under floor heating runs through the ground floor.

The master suite is an impressive room with fabulous views over the garden and a particularly generous en suite bathroom. Whilst all other bedrooms are equally worthy of mention, one in particular is bedroom 2 which sits over the garage area and offers a particularly flexible space which could be a self-contained apartment with the room itself measuring 32’10” x 19’7”. The house has been thoroughly thought through and the arrangement of accommodation is not only attractive but also particularly practical for family living. The west wing of the house at ground floor level incorporates the utility areas and garage block, which has 3 bays and is ideally arranged for the motoring enthusiast. There is a further garage block to the front of the property.

Outside

Upon entering the immaculate garden, the flora and fauna aroma immediately greets you in bountiful measures. The gardens have been designed with great expertise, in order to blend perfectly with the neighbouring forest, to which it has two gated access points. In amongst the spectacular planting schemes there is a large area of woodland, a fern garden with a working well, two ponds (fed from the well), large expanses of lawn and patio and a separate double garage with manual up and over doors. (Planning permission has lapsed for a third garage and room above).

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.
