Tenure: Freehold

A particularly fine Grade II Listed manor house in grounds of approximately 7 acres, with an additional field and copse of approximately 8 acres available by separate negotiation.

DESCRIPTION:
Sherfield Manor, an attractive 18th century former shooting lodge with substantial 19th century additions, is set in mature grounds of approximately 7 acres, with an additional field and copse of approximately 8 acres available by separate negotiation. This particularly fine and substantial (over 6000 sq ft) Grade II Listed property has many period features including original fireplaces and well-proportioned rooms with high ceilings. The interior of Sherfield Manor has been renovated in recent years and meets the requirements of a modern homeowner. With large windows, the accommodation is very light, and the two principal reception rooms benefit from wonderful views over the gardens and fields beyond.

The welcoming reception hall provides a feeling of space and light which is reflected throughout the house, and the drawing room benefits from a large fireplace and a south-easterly aspect. There is a large formal dining room and a spacious kitchen/breakfast room with an Aga, a central island unit and extensive fitted cupboards. The ground floor also has a good-sized study, cloakroom and utility/laundry room from which the cellars are accessed.

On the first floor are a spacious master bedroom with several fitted wardrobes, a separate dressing room and an en-suite bathroom, three double bedrooms, a smaller bedroom and two bathrooms. On the second floor there are two additional bedrooms, one with an en-suite bathroom, and two attic rooms.

SITUATION:
Sherfield Manor is situated in the village of Sherfield English 5 miles from Romsey. The village has a shop with a Post Office, a public house, church, garage and sports ground. The attractive market town of Romsey, with its Norman Abbey, has a railway station and a good range of shops, restaurants and cultural amenities, whilst Southampton and the cathedral cities of Salisbury and Winchester offer more extensive facilities.

The area is known for its excellent schools. Private schools nearby include Pilgrims and Twyford prep schools and Winchester College and St Swithun's near Winchester and Goldolphin, Chafyn Grove and The Cathedral School in Salisbury.

The surrounding countryside provides many sporting amenities. There is excellent fly fishing on the River Test which flows through Romsey, racing nearby at Salisbury and the South Coast and Solent are just over 40 minutes away to the south. There is also fine pheasant and partridge shooting and golf available locally. The area provides great opportunities for walking and riding both in the immediate vicinity and also in the nearby New Forest National Park.

Communication links are excellent: the local road network brings Winchester (14 miles), Southampton (12 miles), Salisbury (9 miles) and the business centres along the M27/M3 within easy reach. There is a fast, frequent rail service to London from Romsey (88 minutes to Waterloo) and Winchester (57 minutes to Waterloo), and Southampton Airport is approximately 15 miles away.
