Main House and Annexe (with associated land and outbuildings) – Lot 1

Once a dairy with its many associated farm buildings, the property has been skilfully converted into a delightful three bedroom detached residence with numerous outbuildings offering potential for ancillary accommodation or income (subject to the relevant consents being granted.)

Converted in 1981, the main residence comprises a detached three bedroom cottage with attractive red brick elevations and casement windows set under a tile hung roof. A gabled porch entrance opens into the main sitting room which features a vaulted ceiling and Velux windows, a solid fuel fireplace and a stairwell leading up to a mezzanine area and bedroom. The kitchen again features a vaulted ceiling with Velux windows and is fitted with a range of wall and base units, as well as an Aga style cooker. Set off the kitchen, is the double aspect dining room, offering a good size space which can be used in a number of different ways. Also set off the kitchen, is a useful utility area, with a separate WC and a rear access door. From the main sitting room, an inner hallway with storage cupboard leads to the two double aspect, ground floor bedrooms, both of which feature built in vanity sinks and a family shower room.


This is a substantial building and was the former milking parlour to the farm. This is now apportioned into 3 areas including a seven room ancillary annexe a large studio and separate store. This expansive space could offer options for a variety of usages subject to the relevant consents being granted.

The property is approached via two wooden gates opening across a cattle grid onto a hard standing driveway which in turn leads to two parking areas set either side of the Dutch barn and a larger parking area by the house.

To one side of the driveway is an attractive run of established planting and to the other, a pretty, south facing tiered garden which is predominantly laid to lawn with established planting and a romantic vine clad pergola extending across the back.

The hardstanding driveway continues up to the courtyard area and beyond, where there is access to the main top paddock, which in turn leads through into a smaller adjoining paddock. On the opposite side of the drive, a metal gate opens onto a continuation of the hardstanding driveway which then leads down to the post and rail fenced sand school.

The gardens and grounds in their entirety extend to approximately 2.2 acres.

Stable Complex

Set across the courtyard is a large additional outbuilding comprising seven stables and a covered storage area.

Additional Outbuildings

Further outbuildings located towards the top of the drive include a detached workshop and store, a run of pigeon lofts and a 24’ x 20’ multipurpose store.

Located to the front of the property is a detached aviary and a magnificent 45’ x 30’ Dutch barn, again offering options for a number of usages (subject to the relevant consents being granted.)

The house and outbuildings offer a combined total area of approximately 9201 square feet.


It should be noted that a further 3.5 acres of grazing (with barn and water supply) nearby are available to purchase at a guide price of £175,000, subject to separate negotiation.

The land is split into two interlinking grazing paddocks bounded by post and rail fencing and benefits from a metered water supply. Access is via a farm style gate from the road.

Detached Hay barn: Set within the first paddock is a substantial outbuilding constructed with block and timber elevations and a concrete floor

Separate bids can be made for this parcel of land or bids to purchase both lots together will be considered.

This superb property is located in Minstead, one of the New Forest National Park’s most sought after villages. Minstead has a vibrant community, a village shop, a village hall, a pub (The Trusty Servant), and a Norman church. There is direct access onto the open forest providing a network of footpaths and bridleways for walking and riding. Lyndhurst is approximately a seven minute drive away and is the largest village within the New Forest. It is a popular tourist location with many independent shops, art galleries, cafés, restaurants, pubs and hotels. 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 along with several others across the Dorset border. Communications are excellent with east and west access to the M27 and M3 within easy reach and Southampton Parkway station giving a link to London Waterloo within an hour and ten minutes. The coastal resort town of Bournemouth is also only a short drive away.

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.
