Full description

A magnificent character property being within The Towers country house enjoying a southerly aspect in an open parkland setting. The Towers is in a central position within the sought after Meon Valley village of Soberton.

The property offers an exceptional level of accommodation with high ceilings, picture rails and cornicing to the ceilings. Notable rooms include the stunning sitting room with mezzanine level, large reception / dining hall, three bedrooms including a large master and en suite, family bathroom, kitchen and breakfast area and a cloakroom. Other important aspects are a large loft space, double garage and lawned garden. To the rear is a communal courtyard which has recently undergone sympathetic restoration.

Situated opposite the village green, the 17th century village pub and St Peters Church, part of which date back to the 12th century, Soberton Towers was designed and built by Colonel Charles Brome Bashford A.D.C.J.P in the late 19th Century. This imposing flint fronted building has had a colourful past, serving as a boys prep school for a time and later as Wrens accommodation during the war years. Retaining many period features the building has been carefully reconfigured to provide comfortable yet highly original residences.

The village of Soberton is highly regarded for its delightful rural yet highly accessible location being within easy driving distance of the major south coast centres of Winchester, Southampton and Portsmouth. The village is extremely desirable and The Towers is situated close to the Church, White Lion Pub and village green. Closeby is an access point to the historic Meon Valley Railway bridle path.

The country town of Bishops Waltham and village of Wickham are within a short drive and offer a range of shops and services from their traditional centres.
