A superb family house with all the toys' set in an extremely private position and direct access to the New Forest.
Herrington House is believed to once form part of the Trafalgar Estate and has been extended and adapted over the years by the current owners. It is built largely of handsome brick elevations under a tile roof and is not listed. In 2014 planning permission was granted to provide an extension beyond the kitchen to create two further reception rooms and two bedrooms and a further bathroom above 14/09839/FUL.
Internally, the house offers well-proportioned rooms, which are light and ideal for displaying larger furniture. It retains many original period features including cornice, marble fireplaces, French windows and oak floors. The accommodation is well laid out, typical of the period and ideal for family living or entertaining. The Kitchen / breakfast room has a range of bespoke cupboards with 4 oven Aga, dishwasher, Bosch 4 ring calor hob and central island. The breakfast area and the sitting room beyond have under floor heating.
On the first floor there are 4 good sized bedrooms and 3 bathrooms and a useful attic /play room on the 2nd floor. The property also benefits from a wine cellar and separate boiler room, serving as useful additional drying space. Please see the floor plans for room layouts and dimensions.
The property is approached through woodland over a long drive to a gravelled turning and parking area on the north western side of the house. A spur off the drive leads into a yard which incorporates a barn, 1 bedroom cottage, workshop and home office. This is nicely fitted out with cupboards, shelving and a wood burner. In addition there is an artist's studio, a great space constructed of oak and glass. Beside the house is a garage with annexe above which is ideally suited as additional guest accommodation, with sitting room, bedroom and shower room.
The gardens provide a lovely setting for the house and have been extensively planted and landscaped by the owner. They have a charming southerly aspect including a large south facing terrace with formal rose and kitchen garden beyond. To the east is a heated swimming pool with changing and pool plant room. Adjoining is a hard tennis court. From the gardens there are a number gates leading directly into New Forest woodland. Surrounding the property are several post and rail paddocks. In all the grounds extend to about 7.95 acres.
