Barnfield is a small New Forest estate on the edge of a village in the area known as South Weirs. The house has an interesting provenance – built in 1939 for the niece of then Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain at the outbreak of WWII. The original thatched roof was replaced when the property was damaged 10 years ago as part of a huge renovation project undertaken by the owners, who have been in residence for almost 40 years.

The accommodation comes to around 3,743ft and is arranged in a split level format over a total of four floors so that all the principal rooms enjoy fine views out over the gardens and associated paddockland with its backdrop of mature woodland. The house also comes with a useful two-bedroom lodge, a heated swimming pool and an extensive range of outbuildings in the form of store barns and stabling.

Accommodation in total comprises: entrance lobby, reception hall, sun room, dining room, kitchen/breakfast room, pantry, drawing room, games room, cloakroom, cellar; upstairs are the four bedrooms including the main master  bedroom suite.
