"With its own trout river, Bossington Mill is a paradise for fly fishermen or anyone who likes messing about on the water" Sid Smith, The Times 2011

One of the most striking and elegant houses in the Test Valley. A mill on the site was recorded in the Domesday Book. The present Grade II building was constructed in the 18th century and remained a working mill until the 1930s when it was modified to generate electricity for the Bossington Estate and finally converted in to its present form in the 1960s.

The classic Georgian elevation on the south side is incredibly handsome and striking. This wonderful family home sits proudly alongside the Test and is an iconic house in this popular valley. Bossington Mill has been transformed into a well-proportioned family home without losing any charm or character. The front door leads to a generous reception hall with a separate sitting room/study to the east. The principal reception rooms are on the first floor and enjoy fabulous views of the garden, the mill race and river. The drawing room is absolutely charming with a wealth of natural light and an open fireplace. The dining room and kitchen/breakfast room share these marvellous views and are perfect for family life.

The principal staircase leads from the drawing room to the second floor. The master bedroom with ensuite bathroom is on the southern elevation and has a commanding view of the garden and surrounding countryside. There are two further bedrooms and one bathroom in the eastern wing of the house. Further bedrooms are accessed via a secondary staircase next to the kitchen leading to 2 further bedrooms and a bathroom from a charming little sitting room.

Surrounded by the most beautiful countryside, Bossington Mill is situated in the heart of the Test Valley between Houghton and Horsebridge. Kings Somborne is approximately 1 mile to the north and the popular town of Stockbridge approximately 2.5 miles. Winchester and Salisbury are a little further afield and provide more extensive amenities. Road and rail links are excellent with the A303 to the north providing access to both the West Country and the national motorway network. Mainline stations from Andover and Winchester provide regular services to London Waterloo. There are numerous good private schools in the area; prep schools such as Farleigh, Twyford and Pilgrim's. Public schools such as Winchester College and St Swithun's in Winchester, King Edward's in Southampton and Godolphin in Salisbury.

The gardens and grounds lie either side of the quiet Horsebridge road. The pretty garden to the south of the main house is attractively situated between the main river and the mill stream. It is enclosed by estate railings and fencing and provides single bank fishing of approximately 244 yards.

LOT 2 - Subject to negotiation.

The remaining gardens and outbuildings are to the northern side of the attractive village lane. This provides further parking, pretty period outbuildings, garaging and storage. Beyond these brick built buildings is the hard tennis court and a further waterside garden adjoining the river Test. The fishing on this side of the road belongs the Houghton Fishing Club.
