A period village house, excellent versatile accommodation, outbuildings and land about 2.71 acres situated in this highly sought after village.
The extremely popular village of Cheriton lies in the South Downs National Park about eight miles to the east of the city of Winchester, between the A31 to the north and the A272 to the south. The village has a church, public house, shop/post office and village school. About three miles to the north is the small Georgian town of Alresford which has an excellent selection of local shops, secondary school, other amenities, restaurants and public houses, whilst a wider range of facilities can be found in the city of Winchester to the west, or Alton and Petersfield to the east. There are good communications in the area and access on to the M3 at Winchester (Junction 9), Basingstoke (Junction 6) and the A31 provides a fast link to the A3, M25 orbital motorway, London and the airports. There are mainline stations at Winchester, Alton and Petersfield, all on the London Waterloo line. Also in the area are some notable private schools including Princes Mead, Pilgrims, Twyford, St Swithuns and Winchester College and at Petersfield are Churchers and Bedales. Surrounding the village is some beautiful countryside which also provides a variety of sporting and recreational facilities.
The farm is an exceptional detached village house, the original part dates back to circa 1870 and the house has been subsequently extended and remodelled three times. The house has pebble-dashed colour washed elevations with inset small pane casement windows under a slate and dormered roof. Full of character, the accommodation extends to just over 3000 sq ft. From the entrance porch the front door opens into a charming dining room which has old oak panelling, an open fireplace with a double sided wood burning stove and by the main staircase a useful study area. The sitting room has a fireplace (not in use) and flagstone floor. The drawing room has the benefit of the wood burning stove and French doors to its own terrace and gardens. The kitchen/breakfast room fitted with Shaker style units have oak work surfaces, an Aga and space for various appliances. A wide archway leads through into the secondary kitchen which has further units, an oil fired boiler, and a door leads through to a part vaulted rear hall which has a spiral staircase leading up to the first floor and bedrooms 5 and 6 which potentially creates an area of separate accommodation at this end of the house. Off the kitchen there is also a full wet room and a boot room which has an African slate floor and a stable door to the drive. Well placed off the secondary kitchen is a large family room/playroom which has French doors to a terrace and the gardens and on the first floor there are six bedrooms, four of which have fitted cupboards and there are three bathrooms and a further cloakroom.
From the village road a five bar gate gives access to a gravel driveway which leads past the western side of the house and sweeps around a raised brick circular bed. There is a range of outbuildings including a single garage and adjoining former stables.
Surrounding Marriners Farm are mature established gardens with sweeping areas of lawn studded with a variety of specimen and broadleaf trees. There is a pond, mature shrubs and adjoining the house two paved terraces. On the northern side of the gardens are the post and rail paddocks laid out in four enclosures, their boundaries are screened by a belt of mature trees and there is also a corrugated barn arranged as three stalls, ideal for livestock but currently used as storage for machinery. The property extends in all to about 2.711 acres (1.097 ha).
