    About this property

    • Meadows is an exceptionally attractive detached character home believed to have been built in the 1930s. The property offers wonderful family accommodation over two floors with many of the principal rooms enjoying stunning views over the Itchen Valley.

      The approach to the house is excellent along a tree lined driveway that leads down through the property to a large parking and turning area immediately adjacent to the front of the house. The accommodation is beautifully proportioned and approached through the entrance vestibule leading through to a welcoming reception hall. From here access can be gained to the three principal reception rooms, the drawing room, study and dining room. An inner hall provides access to the rest of the ground floor accommodation. The drawing room is an excellent size with a feature fireplace at one end and double doors that lead out to a veranda at the other end. The room is double aspect with views to the south and the rear gardens. There is a large dining room again with a feature fireplace with double doors that lead out onto the rear terrace. The study is a good size and again has double doors on to the Veranda. The hallway provides access to the Butler's pantry, cloakroom and the secondary staircase. It also leads through to a utility area. The kitchen has been beautifully fitted with a range of units and an opening from here leads through to the large breakfast room with double doors leading out to the south facing terrace. From the utility room there is a door to a boot room and then from here, access to a self-contained annexe consisting of a sitting room/bedroom, a bathroom with shower and a utility room. On the first floor, the principal bedroom is a very good size and has an adjacent bathroom. There are five further bedrooms, a family bathroom and separate cloakroom.

      The gardens and grounds at the Meadows are indeed exceptional extending in all to about 3.2 acres. The gardens are beautifully mature with well-established hedgerows, specimen trees including a rather magnificent Indian Bean tree, a small wooded copse, a protected area for the swimming pool, an orchard and a large south facing rear terrace. The rear lawns are delightful and extensive and the views extremely impressive. There is an attached double carport with studio/office over and two secure storerooms behind. Attached to the western side of the house is a workshop and separate store.
