Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Lower Pitham House is a stunning property, one of three Grade II listed attached properties originating from the 17th and 18th centuries with many features of the period at its heart. It is situated within farm and woodland. The early leaded fenestration, brickwork and timbers gives much character to the property. A later extension of the playroom and master bedroom with its separate staircase, was cleverly built to match and enhance the earlier dwelling.

Agent’s Note: The paddock opposite the property is part of the Stratfield Saye Estate and will not be for sale. The current owners have rented the paddock in front of the house continually for the last 20 years.

From the tiled porch, the front door opens into the elegant dining room with an inglenook fireplace housing a multi-fuel stove and Fired Earth ceramic flooring. The drawing room can be glimpsed and is accessed through upright timbers. This is a spacious timbered room with windows on two sides and a multi-fuel stove in a corner.

The kitchen/breakfast room, with its attractive slate flooring, was designed and created by Mark Wilkinson with bespoke units and granite worktops with inset butler sink. The cream coloured, oil fired Marshall provides not only for cooking but also doubles as the boiler providing hot water and central heating. Around a corner is a fitted bench providing seating and storage.
Off the rear lobby is the cloakroom with recessed shower and beyond (in the newer extension) is the family room with Amtico flooring and French windows opening to the enclosed side garden. Stairs lead up to one of the bedrooms above.

From the main staircase off the dining room the first floor offers a further three bedrooms. An unusual feature in the two double rooms are the functioning wood burners providing a snug environment in the winter. The bathroom is at the rear of the house and concealed in a corner cupboard is plumbing for the washing machine and dryer. In the wide landing one wall has an expanse of bookshelves.

Odiham 9.5 miles, Hook 7 miles, Reading 10 miles, Basingstoke 8 miles, Fleet 9 miles, mainline rail stations at Hook 7 miles and Winchfield 7 miles, M3 (Junction 5) 7 miles. (All distances are approximate)

Lower Pitham house is situated on the outskirts of the small hamlet of Heckfield deep within the Stratfield Saye Estate.

Day to day facilities are available at the nearby villages of Hartley Wintney and Hook, while the larger centres of Basingstoke and Reading offer an extensive range of recreational and shopping facilities. Good selection of state and private schools in the area. Wellington Country Park and Riding in Bramshill Forest are nearby offering great outdoor leisure facilities.

Communications in the area are first class with the M4 and M3 within 6 miles offering direct access to the national motorway network.
Commuters are well provided for with road access along the A33 to the south at Basingstoke with its access to the M3 and to the north to Junction 11 (of the M4). Both the M3 and the M4 connect with the M25 in the east and the West Country and the A34 north-south access in the west.

Heathrow is 33 miles away and Farnborough Airport has executive jet facilities. The area is particularly well known for its range of excellent schools including Wellington College, Eagle House, Danes Hill, Sherfield, St Neot’s and Lord Wandsworth College.

French windows open from the family room to the side of the house to a lawned garden enclosed by picket fencing. Accessed through a side door is the wood store and a further grassed area. Around the corner from the drive at the front of the house (owned by Little Pitham House) is a shared drive to a row of garages, the right hand garage belongs to the property.
