Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 4
With origins dating back to 1874 this attractive Victorian cottage boasts a characterful range of single storey accommodation, which would equally be suited to family living or provide an ideal rural retreat. This delightful country residence has been in the ownership of the same family for almost 40 years and has evolved over time to create a lovely family home, which could still provide potential for further development, subject to any necessary planning consents. The property is enviably positioned within a private plot of approximately 3/4 of an acre, including an adjacent paddock and is located along a quiet single track lane on the eastern boundary of the New Forest National Park. Energy Performance Rating: F

Landford is a traditional forest village located on the eastern boundary of the New Forest National Park, conveniently positioned for ease of access onto the A36, A31 and M27 road links to the commercial centres of Salisbury, Southampton and Bournemouth. The village provides day-to-day amenities including Post Office/village store, the Landford Poacher public house, village hall and New Forest Primary School, which is conveniently located within the catchment area for the renowned Salisbury Grammar Schools. The neighbouring village of Nomansland boasts direct access onto the open forest, plus The Lamb Public House and Les Mirabelles French restaurant.

Access to the property is via a covered veranda and through an original leaded glass door to the main hallway, which provides access to the extensive dual aspect sitting/dining room. This is a bright and airy reception area centering on a stone open fireplace which is flanked by built-in shelving. There is also a dining area with serving hatch to the kitchen and a wide archway leading to the conservatory-style garden room with French doors opening to the garden. Adjacent to the dining area is the cosy kitchen which has been fitted with a range of oak cabinets incorporating a dresser unit, with integrated appliances including a Bosch oven/grill, microwave, ceramic hob with extractor canopy over, plus a stainless steel sink. There is an electrically operated Velux-style roof window and a step down to the utility room which houses an oil fired boiler and has plumbing for a washing machine with space for an additional appliance. Doors lead to an enclosed courtyard and to the guest cloakroom which has been fitted with a white suite comprising low-level WC and pedestal wash hand basin, with a cupboard housing the hot water cylinder. There are Jack and Jill style doors leading to both bedroom 4 and to the master bedroom. The master bedroom has been extended by the current owners to create a spacious room with built-in wardrobe cupboards and French doors leading to an enclosed garden with a circular terrace, which is also accessed from bedroom 4. Both bedrooms 2 and 3 benefit from a dual aspect providing lovely views over the gardens. In addition, there is a family bathroom which has been fitted with a white suite comprising a bath, separate shower cubicle, low level WC and pedestal wash hand basin, with a heated towel rail and an electrically operated Velux-style roof light.

Outside, the property is accessed from a single track lane via arch wrought iron gates which open to a concrete parking area. A pedestrian gate leads to the paddock (shared with the adjacent neighbour) which wraps around three sides of the cottage. A detached double garage/workshop (with power and light) provides additional parking and storage facilities, whilst a further detached brick-built outbuilding (with water, power and light) would provide an ideal studio/home office. In addition, there is a large timber summerhouse (with power and light) which has a lovely decked terrace, plus a garden shed and greenhouse. A pretty wrought iron gate leads from the lane to a paved pathway, through lawned gardens to the front door of the cottage. The garden is enclosed by mature hedgerow and has been mainly laid to lawn, featuring well-stocked flower/shrub beds, interspersed with a variety of Fir and Beech trees. A pretty archway leads through to a circular terrace which is enclosed by hedging and has a pedestrian gate leading to the rear paddock. There is grapevine laden pergola covering a paved terrace, which features a built-in barbeque area and provides a perfect area for al-fresco dining.
