An elegant Grade II* listed home, set in glorious gardens and grounds
Winchfield is a Georgian Grade II* listed house.
Originally mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1066, the present house was built circa 1767 by Lord George Beauclerk, 6th son of the first Duke of St Albans. Winchfield House was the seat of the Beauclerk family until the 1850s when it was sold to Spencer Charrington, in whose family it remains today.
The house has an elegant, broadly symmetrical design with interesting half-octagon projecting centre. The beautifully proportioned reception rooms, indicative of the era, are set around a central reception hall, the focal point of which at one end are two large windows and a graceful sweeping staircase at the other.
Upstairs the landing affords a sense of generous space and light, from which the principal bedrooms are accessed. There are 5 bedroom suites on the first floor. There is a half attic, housing 2 further bedrooms, bathroom, sitting room/additional bedroom, kitchenette and storeroom.
The basement, which provides hints to a bygone era with its substantial scullery, utility areas, cellars and stores, also houses an office and a self contained 2 bedroom staff flat.
The parkland surrounding the property encompasses a lake, wooded areas, pasture and formal gardens. The land extends in all to approximately 50 acres. The natural topography and historic development of the landscape give the park and its surroundings a mature and characterful identity.
There is a separate, refurbished, Grade II listed Coach House, which is beautifully presented throughout. It is currently used as one property but the layout affords the possibility of reverting back to 2 separate cottages. The Coach House has a delightful, private garden with views over the land owned by Winchfield House.
The equestrian facilities at Winchfield House include; a manege, 17 stables, tack room, feed store, hay barn, wash down area, stores and a 1 bedroom stable manager's cottage. These facilities are currently let.
