Owners Comments

“We love living in Nomansland and have amazing family adventures in the open forest, which is a few minutes' walk from our wonderful family home.”

“Our local schools are excellent and the tennis courts, play area and football pitch down the road are an added bonus - not to mention the pub and French Restaurant!”


Versatile in its layout, the property enjoys surprisingly spacious accommodation of four well-proportioned bedrooms, with two stylish modern bathrooms. Of particular note is the impressive open plan country style kitchen diner which enjoys a dual aspect and cosy under floor heating. The sitting room, also dual in aspect, centres upon a freestanding Clearview wood burning stove. The light and airy living space delightfully hosts the period features associated with its era including sash windows, attractive chimney breasts and ornamental fireplaces. Externally, the property features a pea shingle driveway with an attractive, easy to maintain walled garden and impressive York stone sun terrace ideal for summer entertaining. The gardens are complemented by the nearby New Forest National Park just a short walk away with its variety of recreational pursuits making this home the perfect country retreat for those seeking an idyllic village lifestyle.


A UPVC glazed door provides access to the welcoming entrance hall with engineered oak flooring which extends into the principal open kitchen diner with underfloor heating. Hosting original features including a rounded bay window and fireplace recesses, there is ample room for a family dining suite. The kitchen has been upgraded to include wooden work surfaces and painted matching eye and base level cupboards incorporating a ceramic one and half bowl sink and drainer, integrated electric Kenwood range style oven and cookerhood with space for a dishwasher, supplemented by a utility area. There is an extensive sitting room which is dual in aspect and features an attractive ‘Clearview' wood burning stove set upon a slate hearth providing a stunning focal point to the room. The playroom is a versatile space and could easily be utilised as a fourth double bedroom and is served by the recently modernised ground floor shower room suite with under floor heating.
