Property description

An exceptional country residence situated in an idyllic location in the heart of the New Forest National Park. The property offers spacious accommodation extending to over 5,000sq ft. And further benefits from 3.5 acres of garden and paddocks and a triple garage complex with accommodation above. Epr: D

Located in Minstead, one of the New Forest National Park’s most sought after villages. Minstead has a vibrant community, a village shop, a village hall, a pub (The Trusty Servant), and a Norman church. There is direct access onto the open forest providing a network of footpaths and bridleways for walking and riding. Lyndhurst is approximately a seven minute drive away and is the largest village within the New Forest. It is a popular tourist location with many independent shops, art galleries, cafés, restaurants, pubs and hotels. Southampton is a vibrant, modern city which has the popular West Quay shopping centre and many attractions. The surrounding areas of Southampton and Winchester have a wide selection of well-respected private schools along with several others across the Dorset border. Communications are excellent with east and west access to the M27 and M3 within easy reach and Southampton Parkway station giving a link to London Waterloo within an hour and ten minutes. The coastal resort town of Bournemouth is also only a short drive away.

This delightful country house is beautifully appointed within approximately 3.5 acres of tranquil grounds including paddocks, a tennis court and separate triple garage complex with converted first floor. Constructed in a classic style, Acres Down House takes full advantage of its setting, enjoying delightful views over the grounds and Forest beyond. The setting, we believe, has only been occupied by three owners in the last 100 years, testament to its natural forest beauty. It should be noted that the accommodation has been configured to allow for bed & breakfast accommodation however the current owners built the property in such a way as to make it relatively straight forward to re-configure the first floor accommodation if required. Glazed double doors provide an elegant entrance to the entrance lobby with cloakroom. Further doors give access to the reception hall which enjoys views over the rear gardens and access to the well-proportioned, principal reception rooms namely the drawing room, sitting room and dining room. The kitchen is accessed from the central hallway or breakfast room which has views over the grounds. The kitchen is well designed with a central island, separate butler's pantry and utility room. Adjacent to this is a further music/family room.From the reception hall a bespoke oak staircase takes you to the first floor family accommodation. A second staircase leads on to first floor guest accommodation and a games room on the second floor. The first floor family accommodation comprises; five bedrooms including the master suite with en suite bathroom and a second bedroom with en suite and the family bathroom. The spacious landing also gives access to a balcony over the loggia that overlooks the grounds. The oak staircase continues to a second floor bedroom with en suite bathroom and views over the forest and gardens. A corridor provides a link with the games room. The second staircase and a corridor from the main landing lead to the three guest bedrooms all with en-suite shower or bathrooms. The staircase further leads to a games room with front and rear views of the grounds.

A second entrance gate leads to the triple garage and ample parking for several vehicles. The garage has a side entrance with stairs to an open plan area, WC and further room with adjoining shower room. This would lend itself to further guest or staff accommodation subject to consent.

The front gardens are laid primarily to lawn with two gravel driveways leading to the front of the property and to the garage complex. An attractive brick wall divides this area from the rear gardens.

The formal rear garden slopes gently away from the house with established shrubs and tree borders and incorporate a tennis court, and a large paddock bounded by post and rail fencing. The property enjoys direct access onto the open New Forest and has five access points in total.
