About this property

  • This distinctive property was constructed by the current owners in 2009 resulting in a fabulous living environment. This impressive home offers a real lifestyle opportunity with some really interesting and open plan living spaces. The front door opens into an entrance vestibule which in turn opens onto the principal hall, which makes a real impact as it is open plan to the living/dining room which in itself has a wealth of exposed oak beams and a bank of glazed double doors and windows overlooking the rear garden. This light and bright area adjoins the kitchen which comes with a range of floor and wall mounted units including cupboard and drawer sections with work surfaces over. This open plan arrangement gives a great feeling of space and connectivity throughout the ground floor. There are large doors that open out on to the principal sitting room with its large central fireplace housing a log-burner and there are again double doors giving access on to the rear garden. This well-proportioned room, again with large exposed oaks, is a fantastic living space. A study at the other end of the property provides a great space for home working as well as the potential to double up as a fifth bedroom. A utility room provides a practical everyday space with range of floor and wall mounted units and space for appliances, Out of the main hallway, a turning staircase rises to the first floor with the bridge and gallery area from which there are fantastic aspects up to the cathedral like ceilings.

    The master bedroom with walk-in wardrobe and en suite bathroom is a particularly interesting space with its own doors out onto a rear balcony from which there are fine views to be had. There are three further bedrooms on this floor including a guest bedroom with en suite shower room. The two remaining bedrooms are serviced by a family bathroom. The overall feeling throughout the property is one of great light and open areas which really flow throughout the property.

    The property is approached via a driveway which leads up to the rear of the property culminating in a turning/parking area. The gardens at the rear lead around to the side and front of the property where there is a large expanse of lawn as well as a decent terrace which is well-placed for access through to the main kitchen/living area, as well as a fantastic vantage point from which to enjoy the views out over the River Test. A superbly placed and interesting family home enjoying some really fine views within the sought after Test Valley.
