About this property

  • The Bourne is a very attractive Grade II listed Georgian property situated in an idyllic Hampshire village location. The property is entered via a splendid Georgian Tuscan columned porch into a reception hall, which sets the scene of the character found throughout the house. Understood to have been built in the 18th Century, The Bourne does require upgrading and provides a wonderful opportunity for renovation. The drawing room has an impressive inglenook fireplace and French doors that open out to the rear garden terrace. The dining room is a grand room with a high, beamed ceiling, open fireplace and bay window overlooking the front gardens. The conservatory, is an inviting space, which enjoys views out to the garden. The kitchen is fitted in the traditional style with an AGA. There is also a traditional butlers kitchen adjoining the dining room. On the first floor there is a open landing which accommodates a library. There is a triple aspect master bedroom, which shares a shower room with the guest bedroom in a jack and gill style. There is a further bedroom and a family bathroom and on the second floor is another bedroom and with wash hand basin.

    Gardens and Grounds
    The Bourne has a gravel driveway, which provides parking in front of the house as well as in front of a barn with two double doors providing garaging for two cars which adjoins the house.
    In front of the conservatory is a rose garden and to the rear is the main garden, which is mainly laid to lawn with mature borders and trees.
