Owner Comment

“The location has always been the ultimate reason for living here. We have enjoyed the tranquil setting, the south facing garden, listening to the birds and watching the wildlife across the adjoining paddock. The village community, pub and school has also been a big part of our life here.”


This impressive family home occupies a wonderful position, within lovely ground approaching 1/4 acre overlooking open paddock land to countryside beyond. The property enjoys a rural setting yet is within easy walking distance of the popular village amenities of Nomansland including the well regarded school, revered French restaurant and popular local pub. The open New Forest affords picturesque surroundings and recreational facilities whilst the rural hamlet of Hamptworth is equally accessible. The house offers a homely feel with many traditional features including exposed beams and trusses, an impressive Inglenook fireplace and feature timber finishes. Although designed in a country style, there are a host of modern luxuries including underfloor heating, contemporary sanitary ware and integrated audio.
