About this property

  • Oakwood House is a charming Grade II listed period home offering a versatile family accommodation across two floors of around 3057 sq. ft. The property further benefits from additional outbuildings of around 504 sq. ft, currently used as a studio gym/games room. The property dates from the late 16th century and was formerly a hall house, which was later converted into two farm workers cottages as part of the Hursley Estate. It was converted into one building and in recent years further extended, with the current owners having further enhanced the overall property including a re-fitted kitchen. On the ground floor there are three excellent reception rooms, including a drawing room with two sets of double doors leading out on to the brick paved terrace. The breakfast room, which is adjacent to the kitchen, leads into an impressive timber framed orangery, which was added to the house in 2008 and has attractive flagstone flooring, wood burning stove and doors out on to the garden. The heating system includes underfloor heating within the impressive orangery, adjacent breakfast room and the drawing room. Furthermore, there is a dedicated study, utility room and a cloakroom.

    On the first floor there is a superb principal bedroom with dramatic vaulted ceiling and exposed timbers and original floorboards, a built-in wardrobe and en suite bathroom with separate shower. There is a guest bedroom with dressing area and en suite bathroom and two further double bedrooms and a family bathroom. An additional staircase leads up to the top floor where there is a good-sized fifth bedroom.

    A private gravel driveway leads to an extensive parking area to the front of the house. There is a large outbuilding, providing secure garaging, studio/gym, storage and workshop space. The house occupies in all about 1.68 acres of beautifully maintained landscaped grounds; these are bordered by a range of established mature hedging, trees and lawn areas.

    There is a further opportunity to acquire a paddock of about 5.7 acres, by separate negotiation (Lot 2).
