Character features prevail throughout this impressive home such as the exposed timbers and brickwork, open fireplace and oak internal joinery. Given the accommodation and land on offer the property would suit a family buyer and/or those with equestrian interests or looking for land to keep a small amount of livestock.
Internally there is a lovely open plan kitchen breakfast family room with a south westerly aspect and doors onto the garden. The spacious 24ft drawing room features a wonderful corner of oak framed floor to ceiling glass with access onto the patio. The drawing room is open to the formal dining room but divided by a super two way fireplace providing an attractive focal point for both rooms. The connection between these two areas and the garden creates a fabulous space for entertaining. Continuing on the ground floor is a useful utility room, ideal for muddy boots and dogs after enjoying a country walk or ride. There is also a cloakroom on this level.
An oak turning staircase leads to the galleried landing providing access to all four bedrooms and the family bathroom. Whilst there is currently no en suite, the vendors have ensured that plumbing and space exists for one to be easily created.
Durley is an attractive and sought-after village offering two public houses, a primary school, village hall and church. Further facilities can be found in Bishop's Waltham or Botley which are roughly equidistant, with Botley and Hedge End providing railway services to London Waterloo. The cathedral city of Winchester is about 10 miles away with extensive amenities and excellent cultural, educational, and leisure facilities including the theatre and cinema, a wide range of shopping and the renowned cathedral.
The area also offers a wealth of country pursuits on the doorstep with footpaths and bridleways in abundance.
The plot is another significant feature of the property. There is a gravel driveway providing ample parking and leading to a detached oak framed triple garage and store with loft room above. The formal gardens wrap around the house and feature a patio to the south west.
In addition to the formal gardens there are paddocks to the west and north of the property divided by a brook. The paddock to the west has separate access from Heathen Street whilst access to the northern paddock is from the rear of the garaging. It is considered that, subject to permissions, space exists to create stabling if required.
