Description

The property is a charming period home offering accommodation over two floors in a wonderful rural setting. Dating from the late 16th century, the house was formerly a hall house, which was later converted into two farm workers cottages as part of the Hursley Estate. It was converted into one building and further extended over 30 years ago by the previous owners. The current owners have further enhanced the house in their 26 year tenure. On the ground floor there are three excellent reception rooms, including a drawing room with two sets of double doors leading out onto the brick paved terrace. The breakfast room, which is adjacent to the kitchen leads into an impressive timber framed orangery, which was added to the house in 2008 and has attractive flagstone flooring, wood burning stove and doors out onto the garden. The heating system was extensively upgraded at this time and underfloor heating was incorporated into the new build orangery and added to the adjacent breakfast room and the drawing room. There is a formal dining room, along with a study, utility room and a cloakroom.

On the first floor there is an impressive master bedroom with vaulted ceiling and exposed timbers and original floorboards, a built in wardrobe and en suite bathroom with separate shower. A further guest bedroom provides a dressing area and en suite bathroom, there are two further bedrooms and a family bathroom on this level. A further staircase leads up to the top floor where there is a 5th bedroom.

OUTSIDE
A private gravel driveway leads to a large parking area to the front of the house. There is a large outbuilding, providing garaging, gym, storage and workshop space. The house sits in all about 1.6 acres of gardens. These are bordered by a range of mature hedging and trees, and are mainly laid to lawn. There is a 'child-proof' fenced duck pond which attracts a wide range of bird life. There is further land, a paddock of about 5.5 acres, which could be available by separate negotiation.
