A superb detached family house situated in the heart of the village in walled gardens and adjacent to The Wallop Brook.
The house is a beautifully presented detached family home, set in 0.37 of an acre, situated in the heart of this sought-after Test Valley village. The property is approached over a small bridge across The Wallop Brook opening into a large parking and turning area adjacent to the garaging and across the front of the property. The house itself is approached through a welcoming reception hall with doors leading into the principal reception rooms, the ground floor cloakroom and with stairs up to the first floor. The drawing room is an exceptionally good size with views to the front and rear over the pretty gardens. A door provides access out onto the rear terrace. The dining room can be accessed from the sitting room and the main hallway and there is a very large kitchen/breakfast room with an electric Aga, sitting area and adjoining utility room. On the first floor is the large principal bedroom suite with adjoining shower room, three further bedrooms, with bedroom two having a substantial eaves storage area. The bedrooms are all at the rear of the house and overlook the gardens. A family bathroom and separate cloakroom complete the first floor accommodation.
The current owners have permitted development for conversion of the garage with rear extension, plans available.
The property has a particularly fine setting in the heart of the village within walled gardens with an attractive backdrop of the village church. To the front of the property is an extensive parking and turning area, which is approached from the village road via a small bridge over The Wallop Brook, through a pillared entrance. The gardens start at the front of the house wrapping around the northern boundary through a wrought iron gate with a low hedgerow.
The gardens to the rear which are south-facing and an exceptionally good size have been beautifully stocked and maintained by the current owners with a wealth of specimen shrubs and trees, large borders, terraces, one immediately adjacent to the rear of the house, another large decking area close to the beautiful summer house and a further terraced area at the rear of the garden where a BBQ/Bar can be found. There is a large area of lawn and a side gate that provides access through to the Church Hall. Access can be gained to either side of the property, the gardens are exceptionally secure and provide a perfect backdrop for a house of this calibre.
