Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Remote but not isolated, a unique and unspoilt 17th century Listed farmhouse, range of outbuildings, at the end of a long private lane surrounded by its own land and National Trust woodland.

The rural hamlet of Hinton Ampner is a small farming village lying in some of Hampshire’s finest unspoilt countryside, south of the A272 in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty just to the east of the villages of Kilmeston and Cheriton, and close to Hinton Ampner House which is owned by the National Trust. Cheriton has a shop, public house and a primary school whilst the small Georgian town of Alresford has an excellent shopping centre catering for most everyday needs. Road and rail communications are excellent with Winchester having a mainline station to London Waterloo; the property has easy access on to the M3 and eastwards the A272 links with the A32 south to the M27 whilst the A3 at Petersfield also provides a fast link to London.

Sporting facilities in the area include golf at Alresford, Winchester, Corhampton and Petersfield; fishing on the Rivers Alre, Itchen and Meon; sports centres at Alton and Winchester and the south coast is readily accessible with marinas and sailing on the River Hamble, Solent and Southampton Water. The surrounding countryside provides wonderful opportunities for walking and riding.

The farmhuse and its outbuildings are Listed Grade II. The house dates from the early 17th century and has a classic timber frame with narrow brick infill elevations, the main part encased on the ground floor in rubble flint with brick and stone dressings, leaded light and casement windows beneath a thatched roof which was re-thatched three years ago. The interior is rich in character with a wealth of highly polished timber and panelling, beamed walls and good ceiling heights and it has been carefully refurbished and updated.

The property lies in most beautiful countryside in the centre of its own land surrounded by National Trust woodland on three sides and tucked away up a long private drive off a no-through lane. Black House Farm and its buildings lie in a remarkably special position and is the perfect unspoilt farmstead.

An application has been submitted by Huw Thomas Architects identical to Application No. 09/00443/FUL, Reference 13326/02 granted by Winchester City Council 28th July 2009 and only subject to agreement with the National Trust. For plans of the proposed conversion please refer to the Winchester City Council website.


Outside
The property is approached at the end of a long private drive off a no-through lane terminating on the western side of the farmhouse where there is ample car parking. The unconverted outbuildings are presently used as a party barn and storage. Additional buildings include a former chicken shed comprising garaging, store and workshop, Dutch barn and a three bay barn used as a garden machinery store.


Agents’ Note
There is a footpath which leads down the drive passing the farmhouse and continuing into the countryside to the south.

The Gardens
Adjacent to the farmhouse there are formal gardens with a large pleasure lawn bordered by clipped hedges and specimen trees and a productive orchard. There is also a large sheltered brick paviour courtyard between the farmhouse and the outbuildings with triangular raised shrub beds and terrace. The paddocks which have two stables on skids and the grounds, including an ancient dew pond, entirely surround the property which in turn is sheltered by broadleaf woodland.
