Set within an idyllic location on the outskirts of this picturesque village, in the very heart of the Meon Valley and with far reaching views across the adjoining countryside, this pretty four bedroom detached cottage dates back in part to the 18th century having then had later additions. The property also comes with a wealth of both charm and character including original beams and a beautiful open fire place.

Accommodation on the ground floor, briefly comprises of a 21ft drawing room, sitting/family room, large kitchen/breakfast room and utility/cloakroom. On the first floor there are then three double bedrooms and one single, a modern en-suite and family bathroom. Additional benefits include a pretty patio/courtyard, larger than average rear garden and detached stable block which now incorporates four useful store rooms, one of which is currently used as a studio. The property also enjoys panoramic views over the Meon Valley and adjoining countryside. Soberton itself is conveniently situated close to the pretty market towns of Bishops Waltham and Wickham with neighbouring Newtown and Droxford also being close by. The historic Cathedral City of Winchester which has a mainline railway station is only 20-25 minutes away as is Petersfield, Southampton Airport and all main motorway access routes are also within easy reach. 

INSIDE The house is approached via a gate and pathway which lead to a wooden front door leading directly through to an entrance porch which has windows to each side and a set of doors with patterned stained leaded glass that lead through to the hallway. To one side of the hall there is a door which leads through to a beautiful family room which has windows to both the front and rear, with the room also benefitting from oak flooring and painted beams.

The drawing room has two windows to the front with the main focal point of the room being the beautiful open brick fireplace with inset wood burning stove. The room also has painted ceiling beams, original exposed timbers along one wall, wall lights and a door at one end. This leads through to a beautiful light and airy kitchen breakfast room which has two windows overlooking the pretty courtyard/patio, a further window to the front and a door to the rear. The kitchen itself is fitted with a matching range of traditional styled wall and base units with cupboards and drawers underneath. There are oak worktops, a double width Rangemaster cooker as well as built in Miele dishwasher and further appliance space. The room also has ceramic tiled flooring, exposed ceiling beams and complimentary tiling to one wall.

From the drawing room a further door then leads through to a rear hallway which has windows and a door providing access to the rear, ceramic tiled flooring, exposed beams along one wall and an oak staircase leading to the first floor. A door at one end of the hall then leads through to a useful utility room which has a window to the rear, fitted oak worktop, Butler sink unit, plumbing space for a washing machine, separate dryer and WC.

On the first floor landing there is a window to the rear and a door leading through to the master bedroom which is a dual aspect room with lovely views across adjacent paddocks and surrounding countryside. The room benefits from two single fitted wardrobes and a further integral cupboard to the opposite wall (which could be converted to further wardrobe space). Bedroom two which is also a good-sized double room, has been previously used as the master bedroom, and has a fitted cupboard to one side (could be converted to wardrobe space). A door then leads through to a modern en-suite shower room which has a window to the rear, a fitted wardrobe, shower cubicle, wash hand basin, WC and heated towel rail. Bedroom three, which is also a double room, has a window to the front and exposed beams, with bedroom four also overlooking the front of the property.

Towards the end of the garden there is a pretty, cobbled seating area which makes the most of the wonderful views, with a detached building at the end of the garden (formerly a stable block) which is now used as store rooms and a studio (see floorplan).
