A striking, architect designed, newly completed house in the popular Test Valley village of Grateley.
Soto House is a bespoke new home, recently completed to a high standard. Constructed of red brick and weatherboard under a clay tiled roof, it sits comfortably in the centre of its plot, with far-reaching views of the surrounding countryside.
The house benefits from underfloor heating throughout and entry is via a double-height galleried hall, from which all the downstairs rooms are accessible. These include a double-aspect sitting room with large, sliding glass doors onto the terrace and garden beyond, a double-aspect study/playroom and a cloakroom. The focal point is an impressive kitchen/living/dining room, with shaker style cupboards, ceramic butlers sink, quartz worktops, integrated double oven and induction hob, dishwasher, fridge and separate wine fridge. The far end of the room has bi-fold doors into the garden and a glass roof lantern above. The room was specifically designed by the owners to be used in three parts, with associated light settings above. There are also French doors onto the terrace. Completing the ground floor is a utility room with fitted cupboards, sink, integrated freezer and side door to the garden and garages.
An oak staircase, with glass balustrade, leads to the first floor. The principal bedroom has an en suite shower room and large sliding doors with a Juliet balcony overlooking the garden. The second bedroom benefits from an en suite shower room. Completing the first floor are two further double bedrooms and the family bathroom, with a free-standing bath and a large walk-in rain shower. Bespoke touches include an individual thermostat for the towel rails.
The house is approached from the road via a gravel driveway, through a five-bar gate and onto the parking area in front. The double garage with electric doors, are off to one side. The garden is mainly laid to lawn, with a large terrace, allowing for flower beds and further planting if desired.

You can always tell the difference between a modern house built for the owners and one that was built to sell. The subtle touches and design points set Soto House apart from many others and I would highly recommend viewing this superb new house.James McKillop
