Tenure: FreeholdTudor House is a most impressive and attractive Grade II listed house situated in the heart of the town of Romsey in Hampshire, situated in 0.3 of an acre. The property dates back to the 16th century, underwent a programme of major alterations in the 18th century and had further minor alterations and additions in the 19th century. The house has a fascinating and varied history and was formerly owned by a member of the Footner family for some 300 years. Footners (now Footner & Ewing), who now occupy the adjoining property and have a flying freehold over the drawing room, have been solicitors in Romsey since the 18th century.

The spacious entrance hall leads to the principal reception rooms, including the impressive sitting room which has a wonderful bay window overlooking the garden and swimming pool, and the large elegant dining room at the front of the property which has a hatch through to the kitchen. The inner part of the hall has a lovely period staircase rising to the first floor and double doors to the conservatory, as well as giving access to the cellar, the cloakroom, the study and secondary staircase leading to the loft.

The inner landing gives access to bedroom five and the family bathroom.
One of the many rare and stunning attributes of this property, is the exceptionally private walled garden which belies its position in the centre of the town. The mature garden is well-stocked with shrubs, trees and plants which surround the main lawn. The patio immediately to the rear of the house rises to a terrace which includes a 30’ x 20’ heated swimming pool. An inner courtyard at the northern end of the property gives access to the detached double garage which has storage above and parking in front.
