Hidden away in the centre of this sought after Meon valley village, a listed late 18th century period house, well restored, full of charm and character, set in mature private gardens.
The property is situated at the end of its own long drive in the very heart of the charming village of West Meon which lies on the A32 in the Meon valley and the South Downs National Park, between West Meon Hut and the villages of Warnford, Exton and Corhampton. The village dates back to the Iron and Bronze Ages. It has a thriving community including a village shop, café and post office, butchers shop, doctors surgery, village hall, public house, primary school and a large number of clubs and societies. Everyday amenities are available in Bishops Waltham, Alresford and Petersfield. The latter has a mainline station to London Waterloo and access on to the A3 which links with the M25, the airports and London or south to the coast. Glorious countryside surrounds the village which is perfect for walking, cycling and riding.
The property is a very handsome detached Grade II listed village house dating from the late 18th and early 19th centuries. It has painted brick elevations, the southern elevation was once symmetrical and the rear wing is flint with brick dressings. It has sash and small casement windows under a tiled roof. Full of character and much architectural detail, the front door and porch lie at the eastern end and open into an L-shaped entrance hall off which is a vestibule, cloakroom and turned staircase rising to the first floor. There are three charming main reception rooms, the drawing room, dining room and sitting room. There is a fully fitted kitchen/breakfast room with Aga and a door leads through to the utility room and larder and off the rear hall/boot room is a study and store room which houses the boiler and could be simply converted into additional living space. Indeed, this end of the house with the rooms above could be reconfigured to provide a self-contained annexe. There is a useful cellar with two rooms and on the first floor six bedrooms, two bathrooms and a dressing room.
The house is approached from the High Street by a long driveway which sweeps around to a four bay barn-style garage. Three are used as garaging and the fourth, which is enclosed, provides storage for garden mowers, implements, etc. Established private gardens surround the house, there are sweeping lawns, some particularly fine trees, shrubs and a small vineyard. The gardens extend in all to about one acre.
