Little Harrow is believed to date from the 1850’s with later additions from the turn of the 19th century at which point it was turned into a Victorian model farm. Over a period of 25 years the current owners have re-furbished and restored
the property to create a stunning family home set within its 15 acres of grounds.
The house is an exceptional mix of beautifully restored original features and modern convenience all within an immaculately presented and imposing country house.
The accommodation is as shown on the floor plan and comprises a range of stunning reception rooms and kitchen on the ground floor with 6 principal bedrooms in the main part of the first floor. The house is incredibly flexible in its use and for day to day living provides a luxurious 6 bedroom family home. In addition, on the first floor are three further bedrooms with an additional four bedrooms on the second floor, all beautifully presented and providing superb accommodation for larger families or for guests.
The house is approached through electric iron gates into an attractive gravelled turning and parking area. The large oak front door opens into an impressive entrance hall with wonderful wood panelling, wooden flooring and wood burner set within a superb carved fire surround. Adjacent is the spacious morning room/music room with wooden flooring, open fireplace, decorative plaster work and French doors opening out onto a small terrace with the croquet lawn/double tennis courts beyond. Adjacent is the library/TV lounge, again
with wooden panelling, superb large picture windows, double aspect, decorative ceiling work and woodburner.
Across the entrance hall is the inner hall with an area for seating and a decorative Victorian Stove, providing a link from the easterly reception rooms to the 2 studies and the dining room. The dining room is quite exceptional, measuring 25’
x 20’ it has a southerly aspect, a beautiful marble fireplace and the most exquisite original decorative plaster ceiling and cornice work. The room is beautifully light with two large south facing windows that flood the room with light.
A corridor, complete with original foldable wall mounted serving tables, links the dining room to the butler’s pantry (cloakroom with its excellent storage) and the former servant hall, (now used as a play room) and the kitchen.
The owners have created a unique kitchen which echoes and reflects a Victorian kitchen whilst providing all modern conveniences. To one side is the original (and re-discovered) Victorian cooking range set within a ceramic tiled chimney
breast. The modular oak free standing units, created by Dream Designs house double under counter fridges, integrated dishwasher, microwave and electric back grill. A 4 oven oil fired Aga with companion unit sits opposite the old range and compliments the kitchen perfectly. Two large
walk in pantries are adjacent to the kitchen, with the scullery (now a utility room) beyond. The scullery includes a restored traditional wooden sink, and plumbing for additional dishwashers and for washing machines.
A rear door from the scullery provides access to the plant room, stores, tank room and the adjoining art studio.
From the entrance hall the main staircase, which is flooded with light from the large window above its half turn leads to the main suite of bedrooms.
The two easterly bedrooms are exquisite, both have large windows overlooking the croquet lawn and excellent ceiling height. Both have fireplaces and bedroom 2 has an en-suite with free standing bath and separate walk in power shower. A second door to the en-suite enables this bathroom to be used as a jack and jill bathroom if required.
Three further double bedrooms, all with southerly aspect, run along the front of the house, with bathroom, w.c. and shower room opposite. The master suite includes two walk in wardrobes,
a main bedroom space with fireplace and south facing windows together with a luxurious and spacious en-suite comprising free standing bath, walk in power shower and plenty of storage.
Adjacent to the master en-suite is another bathroom which serves the three double bedrooms on the western side of the house.
A second staircase leads from these bedrooms to the second floor where four further beautiful bedrooms and the tank room are located together with large areas of storage cupboards.
Just to the north of the house is the pool room with its heated, fully air conditioned and de-humidified 6m x 12m pool with side roman steps for easy access. The pool includes double Olympic swim jets for continuous swimming and a deep and shallow end. At the far end of the pool room
is the changing area with shower, w.c. and plant room.
Folding retractable doors allow the pool to be opened to the beautiful gardens beyond and to the Canadian style, heated cedar hot tub.
To the north east of the house is the croquet lawn/former tennis court with an area of attractive woodland beyond. This leads to a terraced area, with water features betweenthe house and the pool room and from there onto a further area of landscaped gardens. These include a box avenue
which leads to a viewing hole of the paddocks beyond the garden. There is also a gardeners’ store and further area of terracing by the pool room. Adjacent is the walled garden
including lawn and orchard and with Victorian greenhouse.
The gardens compliment the house and provide a beautiful and tranquil backdrop to Little Harrow.
To the south west of the house are the former farm buildings which include attractive brick under slate storage areas and the original stables, together with stable boys room and loft over which is accessed by an external staircase.
A separate range of brick buildings provide a garage and two workshops together with an open fronted storage area. A detached double garage together with an open fronted timber framed and slate roof feature building complete the main yard complex.
The farmyard has a separate access from
the public road if required. Away from the main yard is a further very useful barn which is clad on 3 sides and provides excellent machinery/livestock storage.
Little Harrow is surrounded on three sides by its land which includes 3 grass paddocks and an area of very attractive mature, mainly deciduous woodland. The land is enclosed by mature hedgerows and is predominantly level and well suited to the grazing of horses.
Bransgore is on the southern edge of the New Forest National Park within 10 minutes drive of the beaches at Christchurch, Mudeford, Highcliffe and Barton-On-Sea.
The area, known for its country pursuits and sailing on the South Coast, offers a huge range of recreational activities. The award winning Chewton Glen Country Club is only a few minutes drive away with extensive facilities including gym, tennis, golf, spa and leisure. The sailing centres of Lymington and Christchurch are both nearby with Lymington also offering a ferry service to the Isle of Wight.
