Handsome family house in desirable village.


The picturesque village of Chilbolton provides a range of amenities, including an excellent shop/Post Office, the Abbots Mitre pub and a village hall. The village hall is the focal point for many activities and social clubs, while regular church services are held at the Parish Church of St Mary-the-less. Also, within a short distance of the property is the Mayfly, an attractive riverside pub. Walkers and nature lovers can enjoy the area's varied landscape, from the wetlands of Cow Common on the River Test to the ancient and historic woodland of Harewood Forest. West Down, an open grassland area and Nature Reserve, is popular with dog walkers, while the River Test provides world-renowned fishing.

Situated in the heart of the Test valley, the property is close to the pretty Georgian market town of Stockbridge. Within Stockbridge can be found a large variety of boutique shops, restaurants, pubs, post office, church and several state schools.

Schooling in the area is excellent; there is a reputable primary school in the neighbouring village of Wherwell as well as several well-regarded private and state schools nearby. In addition the historic city of Winchester is a short drive away and offers excellent schools both in the state and private sector.

The property is also well located for easy access to the A303, M3 and M27 while the mainline stations of Winchester and Andover serve commuters to London.


Melbury House is a handsome brick built detached house with a slate tiled roof, the original part dating from the turn of the 20th century. The accommodation, which is arranged over two floors, is both spacious and light and incorporates a number of period features of the era, including sash windows, fireplaces and dado rails. There is a large entrance porch giving access to a spacious hallway, from which the main reception rooms lead. There is a well fitted kitchen with French doors leading onto the delightful rear garden, and adjacent to this is a large garden room with wooden floor and beautiful views over the rear garden. A large archway leads through to the sitting room so that it can be incorporated as one space if so desired. Leading off the garden room is the study, currently used as a gym with French doors to the rear garden.

On the first floor the principal bedroom is spacious and light with a well fitted en suite shower room and a walk-in wardrobe. There are four further good sized bedrooms.

The property is approached via a gravelled carriage driveway; the front garden features a lawn and shrubbery, with hedging marking the boundaries. The gravelled driveway continues alongside of the property and gives access to the rear garden. The rear garden is a particularly appealing feature of the property, being attractively laid out and of good size with a soft fruit area, mature trees and shrubs. There is decking for outside entertaining, adjacent to which is a brick built log store. A gravelled pathway leads to the far end of the garden where there is a brick-paged patio and useful screened compost area. There is also an integral garage and ample off-road parking.

Square Footage: 2,999 sq ft
