    About this property

    • Chilcomb Manor is a beautifully proportioned detached period family house, situated on generous grounds with the benefit of a neighbouring paddock. The property offers extensive accommodation over two floors with the additional benefit of a good-sized cellar and the potential to extend further into the roof space, subject to the necessary planning permission and consents.

      Approached via an entrance lobby leading to a welcoming reception hall which runs the width of the property, the scale of the property becomes immediately apparent. From the reception hall, there are doors to the drawing room and the
      dining room and a further door to the office. Access can also be gained to the kitchen/breakfast room, cellar, and cloakroom. The drawing room has a double aspect, predominantly over the front gardens, a feature fireplace and a door leading through to the dining room. The combination of these rooms works perfectly for entertaining in style. The dining room is again double aspect, of similar proportions to the drawing room with double doors that lead out to the rear terrace and veranda. The office is fully fitted with a range of modern furniture and there is certainly more than enough room for two desks if required. There is a large kitchen/breakfast room fitted with an extensive range of units including a central island and appliances, ample space for a breakfast table and
      double doors to the rear terrace. There is a door from the kitchen to the utility room. At the rear of the house is a wonderful family room overlooking the garden with doors and windows on three sides.

      On the first floor the principal bedroom suite benefits from an en suite bathroom with a large shower, and a spacious dressing room which could easily be adapted to become the fifth bedroom. There are three further large double bedrooms, one with an adjoining shower en suite and a very good sized family bathroom.

      OUTSIDE
      Approached over a gravel through driveway, which leads up past the front of the house beyond the parking area to a further parking and turning area in front of the garage. The gardens to the front are laid to lawn and a variety of specimen
      shrubs and trees, including a magnificent magnolia. From the
      front of the house there is a wonderful aspect over the paddock, which lies to the West, and across towards the city of Winchester.

      The gardens to the rear of the house are generous in size, the
      overall plot extending to approximately 1 acre. The beautiful
      professionally landscaped grounds include terracing directly behind and to the side of the house with an oak framed veranda providing an excellent outdoor dining area. At the southern end of the rear gardens there is a wildflower meadow
      interspersed with grass paths and flowering trees.

      The paddock which lies to the west of the property totals
      approximately 2 acres with post and rail sheep-proof fencing.
