Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A substantial former barn occupying an exceptionally attractive rural location with landscaped grounds extending in all to approximately 5.8 acres with distant views. The barn is beautifully appointed and has been carefully extended by the existing owners to take full advantage of the stunning setting. Meadow Barn now provides a very interesting and spacious rural family home whilst still retaining all of the inherent character of the original barn with a wealth of exposed oak timbers, oak doors and slate tiled floors.

The extensive living accommodation is light and spacious with multiple aspects from many of the well-proportioned rooms over the surrounding grounds to the countryside beyond.

The very large drawing room with a vaulted ceiling with exposed oak beams and sliding doors opening out to the loggia is a magnificent room and forms the heart of the barn with a central fireplace and a wood burning stove. A dining room and recently re-fitted sitting room with custom made cabinets
provide further space for everyday family living and entertaining.

The accommodation is beautifully complemented by a farmhouse kitchen with a bespoke range of French themed cabinets and electric dual plate Aga.

The further accommodation is very flexible and could be arranged for a variety of different purposes. A recently updated sitting room / study and ground floor bedroom with a lovely en-suite bathroom with a roll top bath provides potential annexe accommodation or an ideal further guest suite.

The principal bedroom accommodation includes three bedrooms to the ground floor with a Jack and Jill shower room to bedrooms four and five as well as a family bathroom. There is a very impressive principal bedroom suite with a vaulted ceiling, exposed beams and floor to ceiling windows together with a further guest bedroom with an en-suite shower room to the
first floor.

Meadow Barn is a very comfortable and appealing home of great character with the considerable benefit of under floor heating to the ground floor with individual room thermostats, air management system, solar panels for domestic hot water and
double glazing.

Situation

Meadow Barn occupies an exceptional location about a mile from the centre of the village with long views over undulating Hampshire countryside. The village has an active community with a number of village clubs and societies, primary school, public house, shop, hall, cricket green and church. The market towns of Alton and Alresford both provide a good range of facilities with two secondary schools, sixth form college and a station to London Waterloo at Alton and the well renowned Perins secondary school at Alresford. The regional town of Basingstoke and the cathedral city of Winchester collectively provide a wider range of facilities as well as mainline railway stations to London Waterloo.

Outside

The gardens and grounds are a very special feature of Meadow Barn and have been landscaped to take full advantage of the superb southerly facing aspect with stunning views of the surrounding countryside.

There are formal areas of garden, paddocks and a pond. A paved terrace and BBQ area provide an ideal outside seating area and adjoin the loggia, drawing room and dining room.

The formal garden is set around a level lawn with a central stone fountain with young and mature trees and a variety of specimen shrubs and plants to the borders. A quadrant of box hedging and pergola with climbers is set to one corner together with a Hartley Botanic greenhouse (with power and water).

A small copse provides a natural woodland walkway to a very well-positioned garden seat overlooking the garden and with views towards open countryside. The further areas of garden
are laid to lawn with mature yew hedging. An integrated watering system is set within the borders and the well-tended level lawn.

The property is approached via a pair of electric gates and a broad shingle driveway and parking area with beech hedging and a selection of young and mature trees. An under croft provides access to the partly walled courtyard, double garage,
store/ workshop and further parking area with areas of lawn and well-established borders. There is a further store room housing the oil tank and wood store adjacent to the under croft.

There are three paddocks to the western end of the grounds with interlinking gateways and post and rail fencing.

The detached timber stable block with two loose boxes, store and a tack room stand adjacent to the paddocks with an area of hard standing. Power and water.

There are lovely views from many parts of the garden over the surrounding countryside.
