To the front of the property is a large area of brick paved driveway providing off road parking for multiple vehicles and access to the integral garage.

Set to one side of the driveway is a planted border with fence panel boundary and to the other, an area of level lawn flanked by pretty, low level brick walling and box hedging to two sides and an established hedgerow to the far side.

The charming rear garden features a central area of lawn garden flanked by mature planted borders and interspersed with steppingstones leading to the two outbuildings. Set within the garden are raised brick planters and built-in seating areas from where to enjoy this lovely space.

Located at the rear of the plot are two outbuildings, comprising a large summer house offering an ideal space for a working home office to one side and a useful, timber chalet/shed to the other.

Located within the New Forest National Park, The Gables occupies a semi-rural plot of almost 0.2 acre, with stunning views over open fields to the front. The village of Winsor is ideally placed for the commuter providing easy access to the M27/M3 motorways, several mainline train stations and international airports at Bournemouth and Southampton. General day to day amenities can be found within a short drive in the neighbouring village of Cadnam, whilst the village of Winsor provides a highly regarded public house and a farm shop.

A covered entrance porch opens via a partially glazed, wooden front door into a welcoming entrance hall, from where doors link to the principal living spaces and a stairwell ascends to the first floor.

The magnificent sitting room features a polished stone fireplace and hearth with woodburning stove and a window overlooking the lovely front aspect. Open to the sitting room is lovely, double aspect Music room offering space for a baby grand piano. From here, French doors open out onto the rear terrace and barbeque area.

To the other side of the hallway is an impressive family/media room which offers options for a variety of uses and enjoys views across the front aspect.

At the end of the hallway is the kitchen/breakfast room, which extends across the back of the property and enjoys views of the rear garden. The kitchen is fitted with a range of modern units, built-in appliances and a central island unit, with space for a large fridge/freezer.

Open to the kitchen/breakfast room is a utility area with storage facilities and space and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer. Also open to the kitchen area is an excellent, triple aspect garden/dining room with French doors opening out onto the garden.

The ground floor layout is completed by a useful, fully tiled shower room, fitted with a beautiful modern suite comprising a large, walk-in shower with glass screen, wash basin and WC.

To the first floor, a spacious landing with window to the front aspect, links to the bedroom accommodation. The sumptuous, double aspect principal bedroom features a range of built-in wardrobes and stunning elevated views across the open fields set across the lane, in front of the house. This bedroom also benefits from a modern, en-suite shower room comprising a glass shower cubicle, wash basin and WC.

There are two further bedrooms to this level, both of which enjoy elevated views across the front or rear aspects respectively. These two bedrooms are served by a family bathroom, comprising a white suite consisting of panelled bath with shower attachment over, 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.
