This property is unexpectedly re-available and certainly worth viewing, as it is set in a pretty village with a beautiful garden.

Lime Tree Cottage is a beautifully presented, detached period property offering light-filled flexible accommodation arranged over two floors, which has been sensitively modernised to combine the amenities of modern living with character features including exposed beams and brickwork, latch doors and an open fireplace. The accommodation flows from an entrance porch into an elegant drawing room with an inglenook fireplace with original bread oven and wood-burning stove and onto a spacious dining room, currently used as a study area, with exposed brickwork and beams.

There is also an open-plan kitchen/breakfast area with wooden flooring and access to the garden and terrace via French and sliding doors. This contemporary kitchen with integrated appliances, stainless steel and wooden worktops give this kitchen a modern, bespoke feel. The adjoining breakfast area offers ample space for a family dining table. The kitchen benefits from underfloor heating. A door from the kitchen also gives access to the front of the house and garden. There is an integral door which leads to a utility area and downstairs cloakroom and then onto the garage.

An oak turned staircase leads to the first floor where there is a spacious and light principal bedroom with exposed beams, wooden flooring (with under floor heating) and a glazed balcony from which to enjoy stunning views of the garden and the countryside beyond. There are three further bedrooms, all with built in storage and one with an en-suite shower room. There is a family bathroom with bath and separate shower.


This attractive red brick and weatherboard cottage has an established hedge-bordering the front lawn with side pedestrian access to the rear garden. Mature trees, specimen planting, a large lawn and a secluded paved terrace are set against the backdrop of the rolling downs and countryside beyond. There are two sheds, an outside store and a further log store. There is a single garage and parking on the driveway.


Martin is a picturesque village in the New Forest, surrounded by rolling countryside having a super network of bridle ways and country paths on the doorstep.

Martin has a village shop, a church and village hall making for an active community. Travel networks are good with the A354 allowing easy access to Blandford and Salisbury.
