About this property

  • The property is a superb Edwardian detached family property believed to have originally been built in 1910 with later extensions. The house offers wonderful family accommodation over two floors with stunning views over the Itchen Valley and open countryside. The property is approached over a gravel driveway through the front garden leading to a large parking and turning area in front of the house and the garaging. The accommodation is approached through a large welcoming reception hall from which access can be obtained to the principal reception rooms. The reception hall is a very good size with a staircase leading to the first floor and an attractive fireplace. Four reception rooms can be approached from the hallway, the drawing room with its open fireplace and wonderful views over the valley, glazed doors from here lead through to the delightful morning room. There is a study and superb dining room, again with wonderful views, and there is access to a cellar from the dining room. A small lobby leads on to a large kitchen/breakfast room fitted with a range of units and appliances including an Aga. A door from the kitchen/breakfast room takes you through to a separate sitting room. From the kitchen area, steps lead down to a wonderful garden room providing a beautiful link from the house into the garden.
    On the first floor, the master bedroom is a very good size and has a large bathroom with shower. There is a guest suite with bathroom, three double bedrooms and a family bathroom.

    OUTSIDE
    The gardens to both front and rear are extremely mature with specimen shrubs and plants. The garden immediately adjacent to the rear of the house has a large terrace, a superb area to entertain and enjoy balmy evenings admiring the stunning views over the Itchen Valley. Steps down lead to a large terraced lawn, steps down from this to a water garden and steps from this leading down to a small and attractive area of orchard/paddock. A gate at the bottom of the paddock leads onto a pathway which takes you into Shawford Station and the Bridge public house.

    Outbuildings
    A large double garage is situated at the front of the property with both internal and external access to a studio and ground floor shower room. The studio is currently used as a billiard room but could be adapted to any number of purposes.
