Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This charming village house is understood to date back to the early 19th Century and is Grade II Listed as being of special architectural and historic interest. Construction is of stuccoed and colour washed walls to the front with a pillared porch and to the rear of colour washed brick, part tile hung, under a tiled roof with a slate roof to the extension. Over the last few years the house has been updated and now presents a lovely family house.

Planning Potential
A previous planning permission 10/02110/FUL was granted for partial demolition and alteration of an existing outbuilding and erection of 1 two storey detached dwelling (within the curtilage of a Listed building).

Stedham House lies just to the south of the centre of this delightful, unspoilt Meon Valley village of Droxford which in turn is surrounded by some of the finest countryside in Hampshire. There are first class amenities within the village including a local store and post office, primary school (further school at the nearby village of Meonstoke), church, garage, doctor's surgery, antique shop, two pubs inclulding the award winning Bakers Arms, a bakery, part time fire station and recreation ground. The Meon Valley forms part of the South Downs National Park and offers a good range of outdoor pursuits.

The local villages of Bishop's Waltham and Wickham offer further comprehensive amenities and there are mainline railway stations serving Waterloo at both Petersfield and Winchester. Southampton International Airport is situated on the outskirts of Eastleigh just off the M27 together with a further railway station. The A32 links to the A272 which in turn connects to the A3, giving access to London, the South Coast and the west. The village is served by Meonstoke Church of England Infant School which leads to Droxford Junior School; both considered outstanding by Ofsted. For preparatory there is Twyford, Boundary Oak, Dunhurst and Pilgrims whilst at senior level Bedales, Churchers College, Wykeham House School, West Hill Park, Winchester College and St Swithuns.

There are several golf courses within the area including Corhampton, Swanmore and Wickham. Sailing is well regarded on the south coast for the Solent and the Hamble and some of the country's best chalk stream fishing can be done on the rivers Meon, Itchen and Test. The South Downs National Park provides a network of bridleways and footpaths for both equestrian and walking pursuits which include the South Downs Way and The Wayfarers Walk.

The garden lies to the rear of the house and has been created and planted to provide a most attractive feature with colour all the year round. There is a pretty sunken Yorkstone terrace surrounded by raised flower and shrub beds with steps leading up to a very secluded area of garden laid to lawn with well stocked shaped borders, box hedging and screened by mature hedging including a mature yew. There is also ample parking to the rear of the property.
