Owners Comments

"This rural and picturesque setting, far from the hustle and bustle of daily life is the setting for this beautiful period home which was previously fully upgraded several years ago but retains its period splendour.''

"The views from the gardens are stunning. The grounds offer much delight and include a large pool, outbuildings and formal gardens.''

Introduction

Thoughtfully

restored and extended by our client in previous years now with further

potential to be realised. Nursery Farm

Cottage originally dates back to circa 1750 and features generous accommodation,

steeped in character, with exposed timbers, feature fireplaces and beams. There

are three versatile receptions rooms enhanced by a stunning bespoke oak and

glass sunroom in addition to an adjoining annex and there is an array of

outbuildings including a large garage and games room. The cottage enjoys the

most interesting of grounds, having been originally designed by our client and

divided into distinct areas, wonderfully planted with a variety of specimen

trees, shrubs and herbaceous beds. The property affords generous parking accessed

via three sets of double wrought iron gates, with a separate annex adjoining

the main house. Of particular note is the hand crafted farmhouse style kitchen

with granite and slate worktops and vast sitting room with an imposing Inglenook

fireplace hosting a wood burning stove. The property will appeal to potential

purchasers seeking an opportunity to create their ideal home, in a particularly

peaceful and private setting.

Description

The

covered oak porch opens into the entrance lobby with period charm immediately

apparent, including exposed brick walling, ceiling timbers and quarry tiled flooring

which flows through to the kitchen accessed via glazed wooden double doors. The

kitchen dining room is a vast social space centred upon the original Inglenook

fireplace with inset Rayburn, extensive granite worktops, an inset double

butler sink and farmhouse style stripped pine units. A delightful breakfast

area with views onto the garden from the crafted window seat is a charming

venue, complemented by an additional spacious dining area with ample room for a

family dining suite. The sitting room is both grand and substantial in size,

hosting an attractive Inglenook fireplace complete with wood burning stove from

where you can also access the study with fitted Lebanese Cedar units. The sun

room is the undoubted show piece, crafted from green oak and glazing, embracing

the rear elevation and providing lovely views and access to the gardens. The feature oak staircase leads to the vaulted

landing which accesses two large bedroom suites. The master suite is

magnificent enjoying a dual aspect, featuring French patio doors onto a balcony

area. The most impressive dressing room provides ample storage supplemented by

extravagant ensuite facilities complete with Lefroy Brooks roll top bath with

claw feet, double shower cubicle with travertine tiling and chancel style wash

hand basin. The guest room is also impressive appreciating the exposed brick

work and original fireplace opening also with ensuite facilities. From the

landing a further staircase leads to a small second floor landing and loft

room, with potential to create further accommodation if desired. Accessed independently is a ground floor

annexe featuring a kitchen, living area and shower room. This could provide income potential or could

be incorporated into the existing living space.

Outside

Set

within mature grounds approaching one acre and surrounded by rolling

countryside, this really is an idyllic setting.

The grounds have previously been a stunning backdrop to the property but

have been neglected in recent times.

They have since been cleared and offer an open canvass for those wishing

to restore the gardens to their former glory.

There is a plethora of outbuildings all with their own unique potential,

including an excellent double garage with workshop, a large timber shed and old

games room which is an ideal space but does need refurbishment. There is a 40

foot wildlife pool which would require alterations for conversion to a swimming

pool and various lovely seating areas.

Landford Wood within the New Forest National Park. The open New Forest is just
