Reception Rooms: 4
A unique character property located in a lovely semi-rural setting on the edge of the South Downs National Park. It has been designed with generously proportioned rooms throughout, making this house equally ideal for entertaining en masse, or simply for a growing family with a requirement for space.
Overall, the property benefits from being on a private and secluded plot. Wooden entrance gates open to a block pavioured driveway offering plenty of parking and double garage, with electrically operated doors. French doors from the house open onto the attractive southerly-facing garden, which has a lawn and is surrounded by mature hedging. The expertly landscaped garden includes an inviting paved seating area, mature planting and a selection of shrub and lower borders. To the rear of the property, the kitchen and dining room open to a atmospheric provencale-style courtyard garden, which is frequently used for outdoor entertaining.
French oak flooring graces the stunning entrance hall, continuing into the sitting and dining rooms. A bespoke staircase ascends to the first floor galleried landing. Doors lead off the hall to the various ground floor rooms, which include a sizeable kitchen/breakfast room with Aga, sitting room, orangery, cloakroom and study. The French oak flooring extends into the formal dining room as well as the extra-large sitting room, which has a log burning stove. A stunning oak-framed garden room/orangery with logburner can be used throughout the year and has French doors opening to the garden.
Upstairs is a wonderful open galleried landing, from which doors lead off to the bedrooms. There is a bath/shower room and four double bedrooms, two of which have en-suite bath/shower rooms. The master suite boasts a dressing area and a south facing balcony with field views. A notable feature of the property is the huge amount of storage available as cupboards, wardrobes and eaves storage.
Being located amidst beautiful Hampshire countryside and close to the National Park, there is plenty of choice for dog walking and longer distance treks.
