5 bedroom country house for saleCorhampton, Hampshire
Discretely hidden, East Wing of an imposing country house set favourably within the Meon Valley; a designated area of outstanding natural beauty.
Corhampton Court is an attached home forming just part of a landmark period building, nestled within attractive gardens punctuated with specimen trees and offering beautiful vistas across neighbouring landscapes. Initially the property is accessed via an Entrance Vestibule that connects the main house to converted outbuildings that provide versatility and a range of potential uses, namely a Guest Suite (as present) or potentially as Homes Offices.
Classical splendour is immediately apparent once you cross the threshold into the main residence with notable and inherent features comprising impressive ceiling heights displaying ornate plaster cornice, mouldings and ceiling roses together with deep skirting boards, wide doorways and architrave. Deep bays with sash windows and integral window shutters are prevalent throughout the home, as are wooden floors, cast iron fireplaces and the occasional wood burning stove or open fire. Attractive, period cast iron radiators provide ancillary room heating to the principle rooms.
The impressive room proportions are accentuated further once you arrive into the Dining Hall. A truly fabulous and decorative low rise staircase gracefully winds its way up the outer perimeter to a galleried landing atop this vast double-height room that has been and will surely continue to become the focal point for all home entertaining.
Character and practically is repeated in two other formal reception rooms. Essentially there is a formal Drawing Room that enjoys a wide double aspect across the lawns in addition to a sizeable Sitting Room or Morning Room that could be considered as a great location to relocate a fabulous live-in style Kitchen (due to its once use and disconnected plumbing and services). Currently the existing and adjacent Kitchen has both courtyard and Cellar access and would make an ideal Study or Utility Room (should someone wish to reconfigure).
Upstairs, there are 4 Bedrooms and a Bathroom, plus a separate Shower Room, in addition to the vast galleried landing space above the Dining Hall. Each space conveys the same classical proportions and detail found on the ground floor and the elevated views across the grounds and countryside beyond are quite uplifting.
The attached Guest Suite or Home Offices are conveniently connected to the Entrance Vestibule by a linked room with ample storage and a boiler cupboard housing an oil fired boiler serving both domestic hot water and central heating throughout. The adjacent cupboard has plumbing and space for domestic appliances (again should someone wish to reorganise). Two flexible rooms would make ideal Home Offices or at least a Bedroom and Living Room for guests (as presently arranged) both served by a Cloakroom/Shower Room.
