A classic listed country cottage surrounded by open countryside and mature woodland close to excellent amenities and the sea.
The cottage lies in unspoilt countryside off a quiet country lane in the triangle between New Milton and Barton on Sea to the west and Hordle/Downton to the east with the coast due south. There are fine views over open countryside and the cottage is also protected by mature woodland known as Furzy Mount. New Milton is a lively country town of great charm and character set among tranquil country lanes on the edge of the New Forest with a wide selection of shops, restaurants and public houses. Walking over the golf course to the sea is the seaside town of Barton on Sea famous for its scenic stretch of coastline with safe swimming and from the golf course are views from Milford on Sea to Hurst Castle and the Isle of Wights famous Needles. There are excellent independent schools within easy reach including Ballard School and Durlston Court School. At the end of the lane is an eventing and livery yard and excellent riding, walking and cycling in the area and throughout the Forest. There are railway stations at New Milton, Sway and Hinton Admiral and locally some of the finest sailing around the Island and the Solent.
Sansomes Cottage is a quintessential Grade II listed thatched cottage, part Georgian and Victorian, possibly of earlier origins but now with a 19th century mellow brick façade. There are sash and casement windows and on the front are two fascinating small square projecting bays with Gothic arched windows. The main roof was re-thatched in water reed in 2011, in January 2016 it was re-ridged and combed and the flat roof to the rear was replaced and certain lead work renewed. Other works have included the relaying of new drains, replacing the power shower, redecorating throughout and rebuilding the garage and adjoining barn. The interior is full of charm and character. A ledged front door opens into a Georgian sitting room which has a fireplace and clay oven and a wide arch and steps lead down into the Victorian sitting room making one room, ideal for entertaining. Off the rear hall is a breakfast/dining room which houses the boiler and this rooms opens directly into the fitted kitchen which has oak panel fronted units and various appliances. Additionally on the ground floor is a study which doubles up as a fourth bedroom and on the opposite side of the hallway is a shower/utility room. On the first floor are three good bedrooms and a bathroom.
From the lane a pair of five bar gates give access to a gravel driveway which leads up to a weatherboarded single garage, attached to the rear is a barn/carport with storage over. There are also two garden sheds.
Surrounding the cottage are charming gardens, lawned with mature shrubs and hedging and a bridge gives access into the most beautiful natural woodland garden on the south and western sides. Pathways have been cut to provide woodland walks amongst some very old oak, beech, ash and hazel trees plus a mass of holly and rhododendrons. The gardens extend in all to about 1.21 acres (0.49 ha).
