About this property

  • The property is a substantial Grade II listed family home offering some extensive accommodation and occupying a landmark position at the heart of Hambledon village in Hampshire. The property has been in the same family ownership for well over a century and the property was once an old brewery owner's house, with the first part being built around 1805 and added to between 1810 and 1812. The resulting accommodation is extensive and extends to approximately 4,125 sq ft.

    At ground floor level there are a total of five principal reception rooms offering great flexibility and space for larger families. The drawing room with its attractive open fire with marble surround is a really generous room and an ideal space for more formal occasions. The large sash windows to both front and side of the property makes a particularly light and bright living space. The dining room which again is particularly well-proportioned offers a fantastic space for formal entertaining and links into the kitchen/breakfast room which has a range of floor and wall mounted units including cupboard and drawer sections and work surfaces over. A central island provides further storage space and work surface area. Other notable reception areas include the family room, study and morning room, all of which provide an excellent area for those with larger families. At first floor level there are a total of six/seven bedrooms, depending on one's own requirements including a large principal bedroom with en suite shower room and doors out onto a rear verandah. A large family bathroom serves the remaining bedrooms.

    The gardens to the rear of the house, provide a fantastic area for families with a more formal walled garden immediately adjoining the terrace to the rear of the property, which has been attractively planted providing a good degree of interest throughout the year. Behind this area is a swimming pool and the more park-like grounds extend up towards the far boundary. These grounds come with an array of mature trees and shrubs which provide a fantastic backdrop.

    Lot 2 – Stable Yard and Paddocks
    The stable yard consists of loose boxes, hay store and tack room and the paddock land beyond, extending to about 2.7 acres. There is separate access off the lane meaning this land can be integrated in with the main property or could easily stand alone as an equestrian holding with limited impact on the main residence.
