Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Offered to the market for the first time in just under 40 years, an attractive village house of character occupying a central yet private position in the picturesque village of Soberton in the heart of the Meon Valley. The house benefits from a wealth of retained period features and a traditional layout totalling in excess of 3,300 sq ft with the welcoming entrance hall leading onto the delightful drawing room with fireplace and French doors that in turn lead onto the croquet lawn. The dining room also benefits from a fireplace and is a marvellous room for entertaining. The farmhouse style kitchen, complete with range, serves as the heart of the house and features a walk in larder. The utility room leads to the cloakroom as well as the basement which is currently configured as a home office. The rear lobby gives access to the comfortable sitting room which has a wood burning stove and French doors leading out to the rear garden.
The six bedrooms, two bathrooms and shower room are located on the first floor with the main bedroom being of a generous size as are bedrooms two, three and four whilst bedrooms five and six are ideal for children. An enclosed staircase leads to the large attic space which offers scope to create further accommodation if required (subject to the relevant consents).

Outside

A gated path leads to the front of the house with the pretty front garden opening onto the croquet lawn which lies to the side of the house and benefits from a south easterly aspect as does the sheltered terrace which is ideal for summer entertaining. Extending to 2.5 acres, the grounds are a glorious highlight of the property and comprise vegetable garden, orchard, wide expanses of lawn, tennis court, paddock, copse and a useful range of outbuildings.
The driveway is shared with a neighbour and runs to the south east of the property before terminating in a parking and turning area exclusive to the property whilst also providing access to the gardens and paddocks which is ideal for trailers and horseboxes.

Situation

Soberton is a classically pretty village with a thriving community centered around the church, St Peters, the village hall and The White Lion public house. Set in the South Downs National Park, there are a wealth of footpaths on the doorstep offering wonderful walks into open country. For day to day amenities there is a local shop in Droxford (1 mile). More comprehensive amenities can be found in the attractive market towns of Bishops Waltham and Wickham (5 miles) both of which offer an excellent variety of independent shops, boutiques and well regarded restaurants and pubs. The cathedral city of Winchester and commercial centres of Southampton and Portsmouth are also within driving distance. For commuters, main road and motorway links are easily accessible whilst rail links to London can be found in Botley, Fareham, Winchester or Petersfield. Southampton International Airport is also just 17 miles away.
