Description

A beautifully presented detached period home, the original section of which is formed from two cottages believed to date from the late 1700’s.

Owner's Comments

“We have had some great parties and barbecues here since the house and gardens make such a sociable space. There’s plenty of room for friends and family to stay the night too. We have found it to be a house for all seasons. Bracing walks in the forest in autumn, winter evenings by the fire, watching the birds nest in the blossoming apple tree in spring and sundowners by the fenced fish pond in summer.”

“It’s wonderful to be able to just walk (or ride) out of the house straight into the forest just a few yards away.”

Introduction

Set within pretty landscaped secluded gardens in the heart of the popular village of Nomansland just yards from the open New Forest and village amenities. Moonrakers has been sensitively refurbished in recent years to retain much of its intrinsic period charm including exposed ceiling beams, oak flooring, feature fireplaces and authentic latch doors. Central to the accommodation is the lovely triple aspect open plan kitchen dining room featuring painted wood cabinets beneath granite worksurfaces and an attractive fireplace with a cosy Morso log burning stove. There are two further reception rooms and five bedrooms to the first floor offering spacious accommodation to suit both families and couples, principal and second homes owners. Complementing the living space is substantial parking and a large integral garage.

Description

A solid oak door opens to the large study where there is also an integral door to the substantial garage featuring power, lighting and storage. Oak flooring flows through the hallway with access to a useful utility room also hosting a separate WC. The hub of the home is the delightful triple aspect, open plan kitchen living room, partially separated by a central feature Morso fireplace with inset woodburning stove. The kitchen has been sensitively refurbished in a range of traditional painted cabinets with ample granite worktops. There is a door to each of the rear courtyards and integrated appliances include an induction hob, range, Bosch dishwasher and butler sink. Oak flooring extends throughout and white painted exposed beams and timbers create a cosy feel in the kitchen dining area and sitting room. There is an understairs cupboard and the inner hall leads to the dual aspect sitting room which is centred upon a feature painted wood fireplace with tiled surround and freestanding log-burning stove. Double casement doors open to the pretty gardens via a patio terrace.

On the first floor, the dual-aspect master bedroom has an ensuite shower room. There are a further four charming bedrooms, one with fitted wardrobes and another with spacious under-eaves storage, served by the stylish family bathroom which comprises a roll top freestanding bath, contemporary wash hand basin with vanity unit, low level WC and double shower cubicle. The master bedroom is dual in aspect and also benefits from a refitted ensuite shower room.

A five-bar gate opens to a resin bond driveway fronting the home and double garage. There is also a good sized secure lean-to shed to the side. A gate leads to the secluded private garden which has been beautifully landscaped to include lawn, decking, stone and shingled areas screened by specimen trees and shrubs to create the most tranquil of garden areas accessed by adorned pergola walkways. A patio area leads to the summer house with covered seating area and ornamental pond which is an idyllic resting or entertainment venue. To the rear are two sunny secluded courtyard areas with raised flower beds. There is a small garden shed neatly recessed from the patio garden fence.
