Full description

Tenure: Freehold

An attractive new-build detached family house beautifully presented in a traditional style with brick and flint elevations beneath a tiled roof. The spacious internal area extends over 4700 square feet with the house designed with an abundance of entertaining space.

The impressive central entrance hallway with oak staircase links to a number of rooms including the naturally light bespoke kitchen with vaulted ceiling. There is a central island with quartz worktops, Bosch appliances, an induction hob with pop-up extractor, boiling water tap and wine fridge. The open-plan area off the kitchen is currently arranged as a snug. Both rooms have wooden flooring and bi-fold doors out onto the patio and garden creating a very light space. The sitting room also has bi-fold doors to the back garden, a Stovax log burner and floating ceiling with LED strip. To complete the ground floor there is a formal dining room to the front, TV room, study, gym, utility room, boiler room, two cloakrooms and coat cupboard. There is underfloor heating (water heated) to the whole of the downstairs.
CAT 5 cabling and intelligent lighting throughout. Wired surround systems in some rooms.

Upstairs there is a wonderful master bedroom suite which has a vaulted ceiling with oak beams, balcony and far reaching views over the garden and countryside. There is also a dressing room and en suite wet room. There are a further three bedrooms, two with en suites and a family bathroom. A second staircase, at the far end of the house, leads up to a large room which is currently being used as a games room but could easily be converted into a separate annexe as there is already a further bedroom and cloakroom.

Durley is an attractive and sought-after village with two public houses, a primary school, village hall and church. Further facilities can be found in Bishop's Waltham or Botley which are roughly equidistant, with Botley and Hedge End providing railway services to London Waterloo. The cathedral city of Winchester is about 10 miles away with a range of shopping and leisure facilities including a theatre, cinema, tennis and squash club, a number of restaurants and bars together with a mainline railway station serving London Waterloo in about 1 hour. The area also offers a wealth of country pursuits on the doorstep with footpaths and bridleways in abundance.

There are a good selection of state and private schools in the area including Twyford Preparatory, Pilgrims, Prince's Mead, King Edward's, Winchester College, St Swithun's and Peter Symonds Sixth Form College.

To the front is a large gravel driveway with parking for several cars as well as a double garage with electric doors and carport. The main garden is to the rear with a patio extending across the back of the house with steps up to a large lawned area and paddock beyond.

There is a separate building which currently consists of a double and single garage, log store and an office with a cloakroom and kitchen area and with its own boiler and heating system. This building has the potential to be converted into an annexe, subject to planning consent.

Adjacent to the paddock there are three stables and a large barn/workshop with a mezzanine floor above.
