An elegant and well-proportioned 5 bedroom family home located within a pretty conservation area village with easy access to key commuter routes.
Fyfield is a rural village which is located approximately 5 miles to the west of Andover and is influenced by a range of factors which contribute to its appeal. The village contains a strong community which congregates regularly for a number of village events. There is an excellent selection of schools in the area. Local preparatory schools include Farleigh and Rookwood whilst, in addition to good local primary schools, the state sector provides for example the Wellington Academy near Tidworth and Peter Symonds Sixth Form College in Winchester.
Developed in 2005, Saddlers Mews is a private development that lies within the Fyfield conservation area. This classification required the developers to build sympathetically on the site which was formerly a racing yard managed by the late Grand National winning trainer Toby Balding and located in the grounds of Fyfield House. The end result is a small group of houses which have individual character and traditional detail but which also benefit from the installation of modern services and ergonomic layouts.
The countryside immediately beyond the village contains a network of footpaths and bridleways which can be accessed without having to get into the car and which are perfect for exercising dogs, horses and children. Winchester, Salisbury and Marlborough are all within easy reach of the house and provide wider access to the arts whilst day trips to the beaches or sailing centres on the south coast are also perfectly feasible.
Accessed through electrically operated wooden gates and with just under 3,000 square feet of buildings set in more than a quarter of an acre, Shire House is a substantial family home. Tastefully decorated throughout and with three reception rooms and five double bedrooms (two en-suite) with the master bedroom benefitting from a dressing room. The property boasts a large kitchen which is spacious enough to accommodate a dining table and sofa. The house neatly combines a traditional style with elements of modernity. Granite work surfaces in the kitchen/breakfast room and a Welsh slate tiled floor running through much of the ground floor provide a luxurious feel while the pressurised water system, pre-wired CAT E5 cabling throughout and heated towel rails are evidence of the attention to detail employed by the developers. High ceilings and plenty of light combine well with the room dimensions to generate a feeling of space which is evident throughout the house. For those with a requirement to work from home, there is also a separate office which is attached to the main house.
Similar attention to detail has been given to the gardens. Originally landscaped by Hambrooks of Southampton and accessed from all the primary rooms, the south west facing gardens are a pleasure to be in and encourage outside entertaining. The lawns, a variety of planted beds, a gazebo and an excellent stone paved terrace make them a wonderful place to be in the summer but they are also supported by the more practical elements which allow relatively easy maintenance and storage for garden equipment. A two bay garage with room above and sufficient parking for the owners and guests complete the picture outside and compliment the quality of the house and its location.
