Sitting room, dining room, kitchen, ground floor bathroom and 3 bedrooms.
Gardens, garage and driveway parking.

Description:
The Lodge is being sold for the first time in 70 years and was once the Lodge to Castle Malwood which used to belong to Daniel Hanbury son of Sir Thomas Hanbury gardener and philanthropist. It is an excellent opportunity for a buyer to restore a fine nineteenth century detached property in grounds of approximately 0.75 acre. The property has an ornate porch with a part glazed door that leads to the hall where there is a staircase to the first floor and doors to the sitting room, dining room and through this room to the kitchen and bathroom. The first floor has three bedrooms. Outside are grounds which are overgrown and need tending but offer potential. The property also has a garage and driveway.

Situation:
The Lodge is in the sought after village of Minstead which benefits from a superb community spirit and provides day to day activities including a village shop and tea room, public house, village hall and 12th century Norman church where Sir Arthur Conan Doyle is buried. The property is adjacent to the A31 providing access to the coast and the network of motorways accessing London and the airports at Southampton and Bournemouth.

Directions:
From our office in Lymington proceed out of the town on the A337 in the direction of Brockenhurst. On leaving Brockenhurst continue towards Lyndhurst and once in the village follow signs to Cadnam and the M27. On reaching the Cadnam roundabout turn left in the direction of Bournemouth on the A31. After about 1 mile the property will be found at the top of the hill just past the turning in to the village of Minstead. For safety reasons it might be sensible to turn left towards Minstead village, park just after the cattle grid and walk to the property.
