Enchanting Grade II listed former farmhouse with glorious gardens situated in the heart of the Hampshire countryside

About this property

  • Pullens, dating from the mid-1600s, is a fine Grade II listed former farmhouse built of Selborne stone and brick and has been sympathetically restored over the last few years. These renovations have included complete re-wiring, new heating system, new bathrooms and kitchen. There are many original features including fireplaces, doors, cornicing, shutters, tiled flooring and sash windows.

    Pullens is entered via double doors to a pretty porch leading into a spacious and welcoming reception hall. From here the character of the property and quality of restoration becomes apparent. The house is very light with lovely views. The charming drawing room and library, with original fireplaces and shutters, are on the south side of the property. The centrally located dining room is a magnificent room with original tile floor, beams and impressive inglenook fireplace with log burner
    stove. The inviting kitchen/breakfast room with a vaulted ceiling and exposed beams has lovely views over the main garden. The recently fitted kitchen features quartz works tops, Franke sink, Miele dishwasher and a Rangemaster induction hob cooker. A very useful 2nd study/playroom is entered from the kitchen and from here a staircase leads to extensive full height cellars with boiler room, wine cellar and storage. The kitchen also leads to a well-equipped utility/boot room with
    original slate-shelved walk-in larder, cloakroom and outside access to annexe, garaging and gardens.

    The main staircase leads to the first floor which comprises 5 double bedrooms (2 en suite), a family bathroom and a large airing cupboard. A secondary staircase leads from the hall to the main bedroom allowing the flexibility to use bedroom 2 as a dressing room forming a master suite with bathroom, with independent access.

    Gardens, Grounds, Studio & Outbuilding
    Pullens is accessed via a gravel driveway, to a courtyard and through an archway to the main turning circle, ornamental well and ample parking for several cars. From here there are lovely views of the main gardens and fields to the side. The barn–style double garage is accessed from the main drive area. Both the front and rear gardens are very private and well planted with areas of lawn, specimen trees, shrubs and rose pergola .The fully walled front garden is laid to lawn with well
    stocked flower borders. The rear garden has been landscaped to include yew hedging and a glorious array of flowering and evergreen plants.

    The independently- heated annexe/ studio is a great space with a ground floor office/gym space and first floor studio with space for a bathroom if required. The main garden store is attached to this building. There is an additional single garage with adjoining storage area and two further useful storerooms. Attached to the main house is a sunny greenhouse and terrace.
