A charming Grade II listed family house in 5.39 acres.
Monks is a delightful Grade II listed period house of considerable charm on the edge of Nether Wallop situated in a wonderfully peaceful setting in about 5.39 acres. The property which probably dates back to the 14th century, was improved in the 16th Century using materials reclaimed from a former monastic building, creating genuine provenance and a charming back story. The house has been in the ownership of the current family for more than 65 years providing a very special home still enjoyed to this day. Whilst in need of updating there may be opportunities to develop the property further, subject to the necessary consents.
The house offers superb character accommodation over two floors, large reception spaces including a welcoming reception hall, drawing/dining room and sitting room complemented by a music room, study and an artist's studio. The house, which has been extended by the current owners during their tenure, also has a good-sized kitchen with Aga and the addition of a panoramic breakfast room which lies on the eastern side of the house to take advantage of the morning sun. On the first floor there is a principal suite with dressing room, a guest suite and four further bedrooms and separate cloakroom.
Extending to about 5.39 acres, the extensive grounds include formal gardens and paddocks. The House is approached over a long driveway leading past the large barn to a parking and turning area adjacent to the open front garage. A pathway leads down through the garden to the front door. The formal gardens lie to the south and east of the property, with views of the paddocks and towards the tennis court, which is now in need of considerable repair. The gardens are well established with a wealth of mature shrubs and plants, creating an idyllic setting for this fantastic home. The paddocks lie to the south and east of the house; there are four in total, all bordered by a charming stream and large stream-fed pond, believed to have once been a carp pond.
Superb barn comprising four stables, garage, feed room and large hayloft with an adjoining cart shed and horse trailer shelter. This 2,380 sq ft building would suit conversion to any number of purposes, subject to the necessary planning consents and permissions. There is also a five bay open-fronted car port, and a detached workshop with an adjoining harness room.
