Derrydown is a Herbert Pool house constructed in circa 1935 and extended in the 1950s. It offers generous accommodation and is available on the open market for the first time for about 40 years and requires modernisation. The house is set above its acres of gardens and grounds and the original architect ensured that the main reception rooms and most bedrooms face in a southerly direction.
The oak front doors open to a vestibule. The spacious reception hall has, set in an alcove, a fold-away cocktail cabinet and the main stairs to the first floor. The three principal reception rooms all interconnect with double doors and also are accessed from the hall. The drawing room is an elegant room (currently housing a concert grand piano with ease) and has a fireplace with carved wood and marble surround. A picture window looks down the garden beyond the raised terrace. The French windows in the morning room open onto the terrace. The dining room has a fine polished wood floor and access to the garden room.
The kitchen/breakfast room is very much in the 1950s style, with scalloped cupboard doors and a converted four door gas-fired AGA and electric Neff oven and ceramic hob. In a corner is a seating alcove and within the peninsula bar are two stainless steel sinks.
Accessed beyond the kitchen is a secondary staircase to the first floor. A door leads to the former servants' quarters with a sitting room, bedroom and bathroom with a door opening to the drive.
The master bedroom with windows on three elevations is approached past a dressing room with an extensive range of wardrobes. There are six further bedrooms, one of which is currently fitted as a study.

Derrydown is located off Bagwell Lane about a mile and a half from Odiham's historic High Street. Odiham has a wide selection of shops together with local services including doctors surgery, Cottage Hospital, restaurants and public house and other social and cultural pursuits. The area is also well known for both state and independent schools for all ages including Robert Mays, Lord Wandsworth College, Sherfield, St. Neots and Daneshill to mention a few.
There is a series of footpaths that radiate from the adjoining Odiham Common and beyond which provide excellent walks into the adjoining countryside and along the Basingstoke Canal providing wonderful towpath walks.
More comprehensive shopping and recreational facilities can be found in the regional centres of Farnham, Basingstoke, Reading and Guildford.
There are excellent communications in the area with Junction 5 of the M3 within a mile connecting with the motorway network. A fast mainline service is from Basingstoke to London/Waterloo or from Hook and Winchfield for the more local service.
The house is approached through imposing double gates leading to a sweep of driveway encircling a mature palm tree and beyond to the double garage and further parking area.
The panoramic view down the garden and grounds is unusually fine. The planting and design by the owners of the property has created an extraordinary arboretum of exotic and native trees both deciduous and evergreen together with mature fruit trees.
From the exquisite topiary garden to the side of the property steps lead up to the terrace. From here a winding path leads down the garden with its expanse of lawn.
Close to the house is the timber double garage, boiler house and store. Off the terrace with its integral chimney is a designated barbeque area.
