Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Individual barn-style house, full of character in a remarkable hilltop position, 360º views over glorious unspoilt countryside deep in the Meon valley in the South Downs National Park.

Warsdown Cottage lies on a hilltop in a glorious valley between the villages of East Meon and West Meon now forming part of the South Downs National Park. There are the most incredible 360º views of the adjoining countryside and what can only be described as a “big sky” with the headwaters of the River Meon flowing through a meadow in the foreground. Directly from the property there are wonderful walks throughout the valley and woods.

East Meon and West Meon are thriving villages with churches, village stores/post offices, primary schools, public houses and a range of sports teams, clubs and societies. East Meon, the larger of the two villages, is in one of Hampshire’s loveliest and most beautiful parishes, the largest in East Hampshire, and in 1986 the 900th anniversary of the Doomsday Book, it was nominated Britain’s Doomsday Village. The former market town of Petersfield is about six miles to the east and has an excellent shopping centre, mainline station to London Waterloo and access on to the A3 northwards to Guildford, the M25 and London or south to the A27 coastal road. There is a bus route connecting Winchester to Petersfield.

Warsdown Cottage replaced an original farm dwelling and is best described as “barn-style”. It has brick and horizontal weatherboarded elevations under a tiled roof and has been designed to take into account the contours of the land and therefore the accommodation is arranged over three half levels. It is full of character and the majority of the rooms have unrivalled views over the adjoining countryside. From the porch an oak front door opens into a hall with terracotta tiled floor, there is a cloakroom and two bedrooms, one has an adjoining bathroom and the other could be used as a second sitting room. A short staircase rises up into a magnificent green oak barn-style sitting/dining room with the kitchen at the far end, with a massive oak frame and glazed along the south and western sides. The main living room has an oak floor, various fitted cupboards, wood burning stove and French doors to the terrace. The kitchen is fitted with bespoke pine units and polished granite work surfaces, there is an Aga and various integrated appliances. A door leads through into the utility/boot room which has a range of units and a walk-in larder. From the living room a short flight of steps leads up to the upper floor with the principal bedroom which has a balcony and adjoining shower room and there are two further bedrooms and a family bathroom.

Outside
On the northern side of the house an exterior staircase leads up to an office/study. Outbuildings include a former milking parlour/dairy, partially converted into an annexe comprising a bedroom and bathroom. The other half of the building is a garage which could also be converted. There are two stables, hay barn and a greenhouse.

The Gardens
Warsdown Cottage lies at the end of a private lane and a tree lined driveway leads up to the house and provides ample parking and turning space. The mature gardens are principally lawned, studded with trees and shrubs and there is orchard area. The gardens adjoin open countryside and paddocks and extend in all to about 1.1 acres (0.45 ha).

Additional one and a half acres of grazing land available by separate negotiation.
