Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Formerly ancillary accommodation to North Houghton manor, this characterful Grade II listed property has undergone various changes and extensions over the years. Currently the property is arranged over two floors with the majority of the accommodation found on the ground floor offering a great deal of flexibility in how it could be utilised and offering the capacity for a self contained annexe. The front door leads to a substantial reception hall forming part of the original building and boasting exposed timbers and a dual aspect to both the front and rear. Accessed from the reception hall is the cosy sitting room with further exposed beams, an open fire and a window seat set into the bay providing a delightful spot from which to admire the lovely gardens to the rear. Beyond the sitting room is a triple aspect drawing room extending to over 23 ft. with doors to the garden and a further open fire creating an attractive focal point. Forming the hub of the house is a kitchen breakfast room equipped with wooden units with breakfast bar and an oil fired Aga. The area also provides space for a small dining table and features patio doors opening onto
the rear garden. To the eastern side of the property is a utility room with access to the front of the property and two further rooms suitable as either additional reception space or as bedrooms served by the shower room at this end of the house.

On the first floor there is a double bedroom leading in turn to a Jack and Jill bathroom which connects in turn to a further double bedroom at the western end of the house. Accessed from the landing is a family bathroom which serves the further two bedrooms on this level with the furthest bedroom joining a substantial attic space.

Situation

Set in the favoured enclave of North Houghton just 1 mile south of Stockbridge High Street. Stockbridge offers a wide range of local amenities including independent boutiques and eateries as well as convenience store and post office, church and Doctor's surgery. The village is set within the Test Valley and offers a range of country pursuits from walks or riding along the abundance of footpaths and bridleways to shooting and first
class fishing on the River Test. For commuters links to London can be found at Grateley (8 miles) or Winchester (10 miles) whilst the A34, A303, M27 and M3 road networks are also a short journey away.

Outside

The property is set well back from the lane accessed from a long driveway which passes the western paddock that extends to approximately ½ acre and is edged by post and rail fencing. Beyond the paddock the drive splits to the detached garage and the front of the house. The formal walled gardens lie to the south of the property and have been beautifully cultured to include shaped beds comprehensively stocked with a wide range of plants and shrubs providing an excellent display of colour and form through the spring and summer months. A paved terrace adjacent to the house provides a wonderfully sheltered and sunny spot or
outdoor entertaining which connects to the drawing room and kitchen breakfast room. To the north of the property is a further area of paddock, believed to extend to approximately 1 acre edged
to three sides by post and rail fencing and including a pond fed by a natural spring. To the eastern boundary there is a small brook and a further small area of garden.
