    About this property

    • Daisy Down Farm is an exceptional brick and flint detached barn conversion which has been painstakingly created by the current Vendor to offer beautifully proportioned 5-bedroom accommodation over 2 floors with the additional benefit of a large cellar. The property, formerly known as Waters Down Farm was part of the Leckford Estate. It is situated in an unrivalled position with 360o views over some of Hampshire's finest countryside.

      The principal rooms of the property are exceptionally impressive, featuring a substantial vaulted 50' drawing/dining room with its slate flooring, large feature fireplace and galleried study area. The room is perfect for entertaining with doors that open up onto the rear terracing, and also access from here to the large vaulted cellar. The office is equally impressive with its bifold doors that open on its southerly aspect and double doors that open to the rear. This room has superb views to north and south, and a door from here leads to a separate cloakroom. To the southern end of the house is a kitchen/breakfast room fitted with a range of units and an Aga with additional 4-ring gas hob. There is a separate utility room, a further cloakroom and an attractive sitting room completes the accommodation on the ground floor.

      The master bedroom suite benefits from incredible views and also an adjoining shower room. There is a further guest suite with en suite bath and shower, bedroom 3 with adjoining bathroom and 2 further bedrooms and a further family bathroom. Many of the principal rooms benefit from the property's outstanding position with views across the gardens to fields beyond.

      The property is approached through electric wrought iron gates which in turn lead up to a sweeping driveway which terminates to the front of the property, providing a large parking and turning area. Lawns border the driveway, with a very large expanse of lawn on the southern side of the house. Steps up lead to a large paved terrace adjacent to the front door, providing excellent entertaining space. A 5-bar gate provides access through to the rear of the property and a secure parking area, and a further 5-bar gate leads on beyond the property to the rear of the plot. The gardens and grounds, which extend in all to approximately 2.2 acres, continue around to the north-western side of the house where there is a further expansive gravel terrace which is adjacent to and provides access to the drawing room itself.
