One of the finest Georgian houses in the proximity of Winchester, Grade II listed with generous and classically proportioned accommodation.
This is one of the finest Georgian houses in the proximity of Winchester, being Grade II listed and offering generous and classically proportioned accommodation extending in all to approximately 6,200 sq ft in the main house.
Dating back to the 17th Century, the house benefits from the proportions and character typical of a house of that era. The accommodation, which is arranged over three floors together with two cellars, is typically elegant which is immediately noticeable when entering the magnificent reception hall. There are five principal reception rooms: the drawing room, morning room, dining room, study and office, and an excellent kitchen/breakfast room with fitted Aga. There are numerous other domestic offices and store rooms. To further add to the flexibility of the property there is a one bedroom annexe on the northern side of the house.
On the first floor there are six excellent bedrooms including a wonderful principal bedroom suite which overlooks the garden and has an adjoining bathroom. There is a family bathroom and separate family shower room on this floor. On the top floor there are two excellent attic rooms and, as already mentioned, the house also benefits from cellars.
The property also benefits from an excellent outbuilding, The Coach House, this has planning permission for conversion into an annexe cottage.
To the front of the house is a gravel parking area for numerous vehicles. The gardens to the rear are laid predominantly to lawn; however, they are beautifully bordered and interspersed with maturing trees, shrubs and hedgerows providing a wonderfully established feeling to the gardens, having been beautifully tended by the current Vendors. Immediately adjacent to the rear elevation of the property is a large brick and stone terrace which provides wonderful entertaining space adjacent to the rear of the house. A pathway leads down the northern boundary of the garden, passing the coach house, to the swimming pool area, which can be found at the garden's westernmost point beyond a further beautiful mature hedgerow. This area is also perfectly suited to entertaining, and is equally well stocked with a variety of specimen trees and plants. The gardens benefit from an aspect to the south and west of the property and are beautifully protected on all sides.
A superb coach house can be found beyond the property which currently consists of two garages, one a double and one a single, with a loft area above. The outbuilding currently has consent to be converted into a detached annexed cottage to the main house.
