Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Dating back to the late 1800s, this imposing former Victorian rectory enjoys a commanding position in this pretty Hampshire village. The present owners have carried out an extensive programme of restoration and refurbishment with features such as tall ceilings, decorative mouldings, high skirting boards and painted, wood sash windows skilfully incorporated with a contemporary interior resulting in a beautifully styled home. In all, the property totals 6,320 sq ft with the main house arranged over three floors. The ground floor has been designed for flexibility of use and is suitable for day-to-day informal living, as well as entertaining on a grander scale. There are two principal reception rooms and a fully fitted library accessed from the impressive central entrance hall. These three rooms are traditional in style and enjoy handsome fireplaces. The bespoke, handmade kitchen is open plan to the relaxed family room which is an impressive and light room with doors to the garden. The formal dining area off the kitchen is styled with floor to ceiling glazing providing access to the gardens on two sides. Additional living areas to the rear have been created by the adjoining of the former coach house to the main house during the renovation works. This area now accommodates a child’s playroom which could easily be converted to a gym/yoga studio or a 5th bedroom. There is also an open plan kitchen/ sitting area with its own entrance and upstairs ensuite which makes the area suitable for self-contained living. Back to the main house, a central, elegant staircase leads to cellarage on the lower ground floor and to the first floor which is entirely given over to an exceptional master suite with dressing room and exquisite bathroom. With far reaching views to the Isle of Wight on a clear day, the second floor has two bedrooms and two bathrooms making it an ideal space for children or visiting guests.

Situation

Michelmersh with it’s church and two public houses is surrounded by rolling countryside and close to the popular market towns of Romsey (3.2 miles to Waitrose) and Stockbridge (8.4 miles). Both offer an excellent range of high street and independent retailers and public houses and restaurants. Outdoor pursuits are well catered for with world class fishing on the Test and many opportunities for walking and riding with access to a network of public footpaths, as well as sailing on the south coast. The M3 provides convenient links to London and the national road network. Winchester, offering an excellent range of shops, restaurants, cultural and leisure facilities, is approximately 10 miles away with rail services into London Waterloo. Southampton airport is approximately 13 miles away. There are extensive options for schooling in the area including Winchester College, St Swithuns, Stroud and Peter Symonds Sixth Form College.

Outside

Lying primarily on the southerly side of the house, the gardens have been meticulously landscaped and are divided into different sections. A short driveway provides parking for several cars and gives on to a double garage with electric door. The stone pathway leads up through the front gardens to the property with terraced lawns and planted borders to both sides. A lawned area framed by pleached trees incorporating an artistic water feature is accessed from the kitchen and dining room, creating a private space for outdoor dining. A central courtyard to the other side of the dining room makes another splendid outdoor entertaining space with decorative fireplace. A paddock area across the lane houses a children’s treehouse and is suitable for various recreational purposes.
