The Stables is situated on the edge of Romsey yet is neither isolated nor remote. The town centre is two miles away and easily reached by car, or a pleasant cycle ride which in part follows the old canal path. On offer is an excellent range of amenities which include Waitrose, an eclectic mix of shops, bars and restaurants, and bus and rail stations with direct links to Salisbury, Southampton and Winchester. There is also good access nearby onto the M3/M27 interchange for London, the south coast, and Southampton International Airport which connects to London Waterloo in around 70 minutes from the adjacent Parkway Station. The area is also well served by excellent schools for all age groups in both the private and public sectors.
The main entrance opens into a spacious reception hall from which radiate the principal ground floor rooms and adjoining which is a cloakroom with WC, a very useful coat and shoe cupboard, and the stairs to the first floor. The large triple aspect sitting room has a feature fireplace with inset log burner, bay window to the front, and French doors opening onto the sun terrace, whilst the cosy and more informal family room opens onto a small terrace to the front and has oak flooring and an inset log burning stove.
A particular feature of The Stables is the kitchen/dining room which is a wonderfully light and open space and features an open vaulted ceiling above the dining area and twin double doors opening directly onto the expansive sun-terrace overlooking the rear garden. The kitchen area is extensively fitted having spacious granite and solid wood work surfaces, a central island, and integrated hob, oven and microwave. Adjoining the kitchen and approached through a stable door is the utility room which has a door to the side, the requisite appliance space and plumbing in addition to space for a fridge/freezer, and the oil fired central heating boiler. A good sized study completes the excellent ground floor accommodation.
The first floor is equally impressive and has the added benefit of an extension above the family room, completed in 2012. The master bedroom has a Juliet balcony enjoying an exquisite view overlooking the garden, and has a fitted dressing room and en-suite which includes a bath and separate shower cubicle. There are three additional double bedrooms and a spacious family bathroom which also has both a bath and separate shower cubicle.
There is additional accommodation in the annexe above the garage, completed in 2015, which comprises an open plan living area with Juliet balcony and kitchenette, and a stylish shower room. Teenagers will love this space as will visitors and guests, but it would also be ideal for use as an office for anyone working from home.
The property is approached through a security intercom and a remotely controlled sliding wooden gate, installed in 2016, which opens onto an expansive shingle driveway with space to stand numerous cars plus caravan, boat, trailer etc. The large garage (22' x 20'3") has an electric roller door and has been sensibly designed to accommodate large 4x4s including a long wheelbase Land Rover and Discovery 4. A patio adjoins the family room at the front of the property, with paths providing access on both sides to the rear.
The grounds have been extensively landscaped with the majority of the gardens sweeping away from the rear of the house and opening out into a wider area which was formerly a paddock and can also be accessed separately via a right of way over the adjoining driveway if required. There is a large paved sun terrace adjacent to the kitchen/dining room and is perfect for entertaining and al fresco dining. The expansive lawns provide a safe and idyllic environment for young children and have been designed to provide fun and pleasure but with ease of maintenance. Animals have been kept here in the past by the current and previous owners, so could be again with the facility to erect stables, pens etc if desired. There is an abundance of bird and wildlife creating a truly magical environment for all to enjoy. In all, the grounds extend to over one acre with the rear of the property benefiting from a west facing aspect to take full advantage of the afternoon and evening sunshine.
