A stunning period farmhouse with extensive outbuildings and secondary accommodation.
Ranvilles Farm Is exceptional Grade II* listed farmhouse of 16th century origins and great provenance. Built of brick under what is now a clay tiled roof with timber frames and herringbone brick panels the house has clearly been of great importance situated on what was once the road that led from the royal hunting lodges of the New Forest.
The house today offers exceptional family accommodation just shy of 5000 sq. ft. offering six bedrooms and three reception rooms with the addition of an adjoining one bedroom annex. The property is approached through a welcoming reception hall which provides access to all the principal ground floor rooms. There is a superb drawing room with large Inglenook fireplace and wood burner, a perfect room for entertaining with double doors that open up onto the rear terrace. The dining room is perfect for large parties, there is a separate sitting room and large kitchen/breakfast room with the obligatory fitted Aga. A large pantry/office, boot room and cloakroom complete the accommodation on the ground floor of the main house. The annex also on the ground floor is approached off the dining room and comprises a sitting room, bedroom, bathroom and small kitchen.
On the first floor the principal bedroom has an adjoining bathroom and there are three further bedrooms, each with adjoining facilities, one with a bath, two with showers. On the second floor there are two further bedrooms, a shower room and a cloakroom adjacent to bedroom five.
The property is approached off a gravel driveway that runs alongside the house and then through into a courtyard of buildings to the rear. This attractive courtyard comprises a number of barns, stables, stores and car ports providing excellent amenity and great scope for further improvement/conversions, subject to the necessary planning consents and permissions.
One barn has already been converted to create a superb ground floor cottage with vaulted ceilings, kitchen and luxuriously appointed bathroom. Doors from this cottage open out onto an area of private garden.
There is a large party barn which has been used for many events over the years, there is a farm office above which is a further two bedroom flat, perfect for staff.
The gardens and grounds are extensive, extending to in all approximately 5.13 acres with attractive formal gardens which have been beautifully tended over the years with specimen trees and shrubs and literally thousands of underplanted spring bulbs and mature hedgerows. A most attractive feature in the garden is the central courtyard, approached from the reception hall of the house, this little oasis provides an intimate setting for evening drinks or dinner.
Beyond the formal gardens is a large paddock of about 3.3 acres.
