4 Bedroom Detached House, Swelling Hill, Ropley, Alresford, Hampshire, SO24 0DA

Tenure Type: Freehold

Property Description

EQUESTRIAN - A wonderful opportunity for an incoming purchaser to either refurbish and extend or re-build (subject to the necessary planning consents) a family home in this exceptional spot in Ropley. The house enjoys a peaceful location without isolation

and sits in gardens and paddocks in the region of 5 acres with very impressive elevated and far reaching views. Should an equestrian set-up be of interest, there are three post and rail fenced paddocks with the benefit of a modern stable block

with four stables, a tack room and a sizeable barn as well as an array of further store rooms with flexible use. The existing house is comfortably appointed with good reception space and four

bedrooms. The principal reception rooms benefit from the very special views and lovely natural light to the south westerly aspect.

This property is featured by our Equestrian department.

Situation
In 2015 Ropley was named as one of the 25 most idyllic English Villages and is one of the most attractive outside the market town of Alresford. Ropley is a thriving village with an array of amenities including a community shop and Post

Office, primary school, church, parish hall, sports pavilion and recreation ground and with access to excellent walks and open countryside. Just outside the village is the station of the Mid-Hants Railway with its steam trains, which is also known

as the Watercress Line and runs from Alton to Alresford and the line can be seen in the distance from Old Down House.

The nearby Georgian market town of Alresford is famed for its pretty streets lined with 18th century houses, cottages, boutique shops, independent retailers, cafes, pubs and everyday stores. The River Arle flows through the town and on into the River Itchen with a number of beautiful riverside walks and the watercress meadows. Further amenities can be found in Winchester (12 miles) and Alton (7 miles).

Both have mainline railway stations offering access to London Waterloo in under an hour. The A31 provides excellent road access to London and the national motorway network. There are a number of excellent educational facilities locally

including Winchester College, St. Swithun’s School, Pilgrims, Princes Mead, Bedales and Peter Symonds sixth form college.

Outside
With fabulous gardens to the front, side and rear, Old Down House enjoys a wonderful feeling of space and privacy and has exceptional, elevated views to the south west from the house. The property is approached via a gated, sweeping gravel drive that circles in front of the house with parking for many cars to the rear of the property. The gardens are largely laid to lawn with mature trees and shrubs interspersed. An existing decked terrace is accessed from the current sitting room and snug and makes for a lovely spot to watch the sun go down across the fields. Six interconnecting

post and rail fenced paddocks, are directly accessible from the gardens and the stable block and provide the opportunity for an attractive equestrian set up or to simply continue to protect the wonderful views the house currently enjoys.
