5 bedroom detached house for saleEast Wellow, Romsey, Hampshire
Gable Wood House is an extraordinarily beautiful house, set within about 5.5 acres of gardens and private woodlands. Only eight years old, it was imaginatively designed to look old and full of character, cleverly fusing the old with contemporary. With a square footage of 5498 plus many outside terraces, some of which are covered, the spacious house is a fun family home. The clever design includes economical and environmentally kind Air Source heat pump and bio digester. Most of the house has built in Sonos sound system, and the drawing room has built in surround sound for the television.
The moment you sweep up the long private tree lined drive and approach the house, you start to get a feel of the house. Attractive Michelmersh brick and Keymer tile hung, the house exudes charm and warmth. Large oak doors open to a spacious and exceptionally light reception hall. The glass lantern roof throws light down past the first floor and the hall. Ahead of the front door are French windows to the gardens, glass doors to the kitchen/family room, and the drawing room. This makes a large welcoming hallway, with light oak floors, and immediate views of the gardens beyond.
To the left is a cloakroom and a study and beyond a large kitchen/breakfast room/family room. Split into clearly defined areas, the kitchen has a range of beautifullysunken wok burner, a centre island and breakfast bar areas. Windows and French doors surround this room, which has a dedicated family/sofa area, a chimney breast and a dining area with high vaulted ceilings where light flows in from the glass atrium. French doors lead directly onto two terrace areas, one of which benefits from an infrared heater. A window faced boot room leads to the laundry room, triple garage (with three sets of windows to the gardens) and back stairs to the area above the garage. Currently used as a games room, this room has Juliet windows to the garden, a contemporary shower room and could easily be changed to become an annexe, subject to any necessary consents.
The beautiful drawing room has windows to three sides of the house, two sets of French doors to the terraces and an open crafted built in units, integrated, five ring induction hob which includes an imaginative fireplace; the room is cleverly split to make the most of the space by a wonderfully unusual internal fire pit with suspended cast iron chimney, separating the dining area.
The lantern glass roof steeps the first floor landing in light. On this floor there are two storage/airing cupboards, and five double bedrooms, all of which have fitted wardrobes and ensuites (three have contemporary shower rooms and another has a bathroom). The majestic master bedroom has a vaulted ceiling, windows on three sides, three sets of double wardrobes, and a wonderful large ensuite bathroom which has a double shower cubicle, egg shaped freestanding bath, three long built in storage cupboards, all off set with burnish bronze tiling and inset lighting.
Outside, the gardens wrap around the house, each of the downstairs main rooms have French doors leading to terraces and decking areas, and onto the lawns. There is a small lake with a children’s zip wire over, dedicated woodlands areas with wonderful rhododendron lined walkways, two separate automated gated driveway entries with intercom to the house, and even has a large bonfire pit on permanent standby for the disposal of garden cuttings throughout the year. There are play areas, terraces, sun traps and even areas where you can ride quad bikes on rough terrain, whilst still being in a safe environment.
