Full description

A beautiful family home of substantial size with grounds of approximately three quarters of an acre in the exclusive Leydene Park.

The current owners of the property have carried out considerable refurbishment and upgrading, and gone to great lengths to ensure there is a quality finish and specification throughout. All rooms are of generous proportions and the house is ideal for family life and entertaining as well as offering versatility. The accommodation consists of a large central reception hall with parquet themed floor. Partially glazed double doors lead in to the kitchen as well as the dining and sitting rooms where the parquet themed flooring continues. The sitting room has a beautiful feature fireplace housing a woodburning stove. The room also enjoys a triple aspect and French doors on to a patio terrace.

The recently renewed kitchen area is modern and spacious and enjoys views out to the gardens. It has been opened up to incorporate a kitchen, family dining-area and conservatory beyond. Signature kitchens of Petersfield designed and installed the new kitchen, which has underfloor heating and is finished to the highest of standards. Adjacent to this area is a very useful utility room and a boot room. The generously sized formal dining room, a study and a downstairs cloakroom complete the accommodation on this level.

Five double bedrooms on the first floor are approached by an attractive staircase and galleried landing. The master bedroom suite enjoys a delightful garden aspect and has two double, built-in wardrobes as well as a pair of walk in closets. To complement the room further there is a beautifully refitted and generously sized en suite bath and shower room with underfloor heating. The first guest bedroom also has an en-suite shower room and a pair of double wardrobes and the remaining three bedrooms also all benefit from built in wardrobes. The first floor is completed by a four piece family bathroom, a linen cupboard and an oversized airing cupboard.

The wonderful landscaped gardens, approximately three quarters of an acre, are unquestionably a great feature and perfectly compliment the property. Enjoying a South Westerly aspect to the rear of the property, two raised patio terraces benefit from unspoilt views over the grounds and far reaching views to the Solent and Isle of Wight. Stepping down from the terrace the gardens are predominantly laid to lawn and start to gently slope away from the property. Within the lawn are several grand old sycamore trees as well as some younger, smaller trees. The garden is fully enclosed, making it very appealing for those with a young family or active and inquisitive animals. To the front, twin five bar gates welcome you on to the driveway, leading to a double garage. The front garden is pleasantly enclosed by natural screening with a good degree of lawn and a small collection of mature fruit trees.

Leydene Park sits in an elevated position within the South Downs National Park and enjoys far reaching views across the Downs and out towards the Solent. An establishment of prestigious homes of varying styles and designs, Leydene Park was built by Messer’s Berkley Homes in the late nineteen nineties. The properties were built on the grounds to Leydene House, a stunning country mansion built in the years following the Great War at the request of aristocrats Lord and Lady Peel. Later, during the Second World War the property and a large amount of the grounds were requisitioned by the Royal Navy and became HMS Mercury. Leydene Park’s communal grounds are beautifully maintained and boast three separate tennis courts for the exclusive use of its residents.

The development sits above the quaint Hampshire village of East Meon. With its beautiful blend of Tudor and thatched cottages, the village boasts two inns and a village shop. The historic old market town of Petersfield is approximately eight miles away. Here, you will find a great range of independent and national retailers on hand as well as a generous choice of restaurants and bars. Petersfield has a mainline station on the Portsmouth to London Waterloo line, the fastest route to London being one hour and six minutes. There are many excellent schools in the area including Bedales, Churcher's College, Ditcham Park, The Petersfield School, and Perrins. Countryside is all around you, with countless options for walking, riding or cycling. Sailing is on hand with the A3 a short distance away providing unspoilt access to the coast.

*A mandatory service charge is applicable for all residents. This covers a range of matters including upkeep of the communal grounds, the use and upkeep of the tennis courts, and private drainage costs. Ask Homes for further information.
