Nestled on a desirable country lane in the New Forest hamlet of Winsor is this delightful period cottage with origins dating back to the 1750's.


This much loved home offers an attractive blend of character features which include exposed beams and an Inglenook fireplace with contrasting modern day influences evidenced in the bright and airy family room. The bespoke kitchen breakfast room with granite work surfaces and island include a range style oven and hob and from here, the three generous receptions and study radiate. The mature grounds extend to 1.2 acres of well tended gardens and a paddock to the rear with a stable currently utilised as a games room. The pool area is perfectly situated to capture the sun and features a pool house and area for a hot tub. Extensive parking is available as well as a 46ft garage, timber workshop, shed and greenhouse. The charming hamlet of Winsor is ideal for commuters, situated just a short drive from Ashurst or Totton station providing direct rail links to London Waterloo.


A timber front door with leaded glazed insert opens into the entrance porch providing a useful space for coats and shoes with an inner gate latch door into the charming entrance hall. Perfect for dining, this spacious room is rich in features dating back to its origins of 1750, which include exposed timber beams, oak flooring accompanied by an ornate, traditional radiator. The dual aspect drawing room features an Inglenook fireplace and log burning stove providing an impressive focal point to the room whilst enjoying views over the front and rear gardens. The kitchen breakfast room offers an extensive range of storage within quality wall and base units complemented by the granite work surfaces and central island. The elegant range style cooker and attractive hood form the centre piece of the kitchen with integrated appliances including a dishwasher and fridge. The adjoining utility area provides additional storage and work surface space with plumbing for a washing machine and dryer as well as a pantry and access to the rear garden. A useful cloakroom is fitted with quality sanitary ware and is adjacent to the study. In contrast the bright and airy family room has a modern feel with bifold doors to the garden and a bespoke shelving and drawer unit with TV recess.

The split level landing serves all four bedrooms and the tiled family bathroom which comprises a bath with mixer shower over, pedestal wash hand basin, low level WC and heater towel rail. The wonderfully light master bedroom boasts fitted wardrobes and a fully tiled ensuite shower room with additional storage. Bedrooms two, three and four are generous, double in size, with an optional fifth bedroom or dressing area providing access to bedroom four.


Situated on a quiet country lane, the property is approached via a gravel driveway providing off road parking for several vehicles fronting the 46ft garage. The mature front garden is predominantly laid to lawn punctuated by mature trees and flanked by edged borders and a gravel seating area which abuts the property. A side gate opens into the private rear garden which features well tended lawns and various seating areas with a timber workshop and shed at the rear of the garage. The gated pool area is perfectly situated to capture the sun and boasts a spacious sun terrace and pool house fitted with power and light. To the rear of the garden is the paddock which includes what was once the stables and is now utilised as a games room with power, light and wall heaters.
