    About this property

    • Nelson House is a wonderful Grade II listed house, built in the mid-19th century of Flemish bond brick. It has been sympathetically extended over the years and beautifully refurbished by the current owners, creating the perfect combination of a characterful period house with modern services. From its position in the village, the house enjoys stunning south facing views over the River Ebble and countryside beyond.

      The downstairs accommodation is accessed from the central hallway with flagstone floor and fireplace with a log-burner. The dual aspect sitting room lies to the right; an elegant room with open fire place and stripped timber floor boards. There is a cloakroom and a private study which overlooks the beautiful garden. Stairs lead from the hall to the upper floors. Also accessed from the hall is the fabulous kitchen/dining room, with oak flooring and south-facing windows which let in plenty of natural light. The kitchen is fitted with base and wall mounted cupboards and marble counters; the double butlers' sink faces south with views over the village churchyard. There is an oil-fired Aga, and separately, a conventional electric oven with induction hob. There is space for a large fridge/freezer and microwave within the fitted units. There is ample space for a dining table and the snug is just off.

      Through the snug lies the utility room, with a separate WC and door out to the rear terrace and garden. The family room inter-connects with the games room to create a fantastic open plan space, both with access to the pretty gardens. The games room is superb, with vaulted ceilings and fireplace with a log-burner.

      Upstairs, the landing offers far reaching views over the garden, River Ebble and water-meadows beyond. The principal bedroom is dual aspect, with a walk in dressing room and en-suite bathroom. There are three further double bedrooms on the first floor, sharing a family bathroom with bath and shower. There are two further double bedrooms on the second floor, sharing a further bathroom.

      Outside
      There is a small area of lawn to the front of the house, with off-street parking and a single garage which is attached to the house and accessible from both the village lane and the rear garden.

      To the rear is a lovely deep flagstone terrace, with box topiary and a charming outlook over the lawns, flanked with flowing herbaceous borders leading down to the lower gardens. A wendy house is nestled into one of the beds. A mature beech hedge provides further structure to the gardens, separating the kitchen garden, with raised beds, and the outdoor swimming pool. The heated swimming pool is 20m long, enclosed and has a changing room, WC and plant room, with open south facing sitting area. Espaliered fruit and pleached hornbeam provide further colourful structure to the gardens.
      There is a large garden shed for machinery and tool storage, with a studio adjoining. A further area of lawn leads through to the orchard and informal gardens, with areas of wild flower leading down to the River Ebble. The property has riparian rights.
