Occupying an enviable position in a highly sought after New Forest village is Yew Tree Cottage, a quintessential, yet deceptively spacious cottage offering an abundance of flexible accommodation.
Dating back to the late 1600’s, this exceptional family home boasts charming character features and beautiful cob qualities. The current owners have meticulously cared for the property and have carried out a programme of careful modernisation and restoration. The home offers its next owners circa 1587 sq. ft. of flexible accommodation that balances modern convenience with the character and charm of a period village residence.
The accommodation is arranged over two floors and consists of a sizeable dual aspect sitting room boasting exposed beams, oak flooring and a feature full width Inglenook Fireplace with wood burning stove. Adjacent to the sitting room is the drawing room with an original pillar beam and stairs leading to the first floor. The dual aspect kitchen/breakfast room is the perfect entertaining space. This room is comprehensively appointed with an array of wall and base units with oak worktops and central butchers block, gas range cooker and space for a dining table and chairs. Double doors lead through to the useful utility/boot room that in turn gives access to the ground floor shower room.
There are four generous bedrooms, one of which has double fitted wardrobes, found on the first floor all arranged around a split level landing as well as a well-appointed family bathroom.
The home is located in the popular New Forest village of Landford located to the south east of the Cathedral City of Salisbury.

The beautiful New Forest provides the perfect setting to enjoy walking and cycling whilst those with a love of golf can be occupied at the popular Hampworth Golf and Country Club located a short drive away.

To the front of the home is a pretty area of lawn which is beautifully decorated with mature hedging and pathways leading to the rear of the home. The gardens and grounds of the property are a particular feature and sit predominantly to the rear of the home.

There are an array of outbuildings adding to the homes already generous accommodation including the glazed garden room, a converted telephone exchange which is currently used as a stunning home office but could be perfect as an annexe and brick storage sheds.
