Full description


A truly impressive residence of 3,500 square feet offering characterful and immaculate accommodation situated in an idyllic location, with outstanding far reaching views, tucked away from the main thoroughfare and set amongst glorious 5 acre grounds comprising formal gardens and paddocks with the benefit of excellent equestrian facilities. 

The property occupies a tranquil position at the end of a private road in the sought after enclave of Crofton just a short distance from the historic village of Titchfield. This small enclave of just a few privately owned houses forms part of the grounds and buildings that once belonged to Crofton Manor House which sadly no longer exists. The origins of the property, we understand, date back to 1775 and the property has been sympathetically extended over the years and now represents a substantial five bedroom family home. All the rooms within this property are extremely well proportioned and beautifully presented with many character features such as open fireplaces, log burning stove and timber beams. This delightful home has a strong sense of space and light immediately upon entering with a generous reception hall which centres on an open fireplace. There are three reception rooms in total, two accessed from the reception hall and the other accessed via the kitchen/breakfast room, all are of excellent proportions with high ceilings. The kitchen has extensive cupboards with a gas fired Aga. There is also a separate oven and integral dishwasher. Upstairs are five bedrooms, four of which are of double proportions and all enjoy superb views across the countryside and beyond.

Outside, the gardens are a particular feature to the property, the formal gardens extend to approximately one acre comprising areas laid to lawn, vegetable gardens and an abundance of fruit trees. It really is a gardener's delight. The remaining 4.3 acres are divided up into paddocks with impressive stabling, tack room and ménage constructed in 2013. 

This area is an extremely peaceful spot set well back from the main road and edging the Meon Valley and as such it has a very rural feel whilst being just moments away from the A/M27 road networks. Local amenities can be found at Titchfield just over a mile away or Stubbington just 1.5 miles away whilst more comprehensive facilities can be found at Fareham, Portsmouth or Southampton. For commuters rail links can be found at Fareham or at Southampton Airport Parkway with the latter running trains to London Waterloo in under an hour. The property also adjoins Titchfield Haven
National Nature Reserve covering some 369 acres of the Lower Meon valley where one can enjoy a relaxing walk and see a variety of wetland habitats containing a wealth of wildlife. Beyond the haven is Hill Head beach and The Solent providing excellent sailing facilities and coastal walks.
