About this property

TENURE: Share of Freehold

Built in the late 19th Century, The Towers has previously served as a private residence, a prep school and a home for Wrens serving HMS Mercury in the war. In the late 1970s, it was sympathetically converted and today represents a truly unique and beautiful setting to live in.

The spectacular drawing room extends over 29 ft. and features a large walk in bay window over looking the garden and an open fire. Parquet flooring continues in the equally impressive, panelled dining room. The kitchen is fitted with cream units and features a central island with breakfast bar. There is also a w/c on this level. On the first floor there are four bedrooms including a 21 ft. master bedroom with picture window, built in wardrobes and an en suite bathroom. This expansive room also provides access to the circular turreted tower, currently used as a store. Bedroom three on this level also benefits from an en suite, whilst bedrooms two and four are served by the Jack & Jill bathroom. On the 2nd floor is a vast loft space which has been converted and, subject to works to comply with building regulations, would make an impressive master suite or studio area.

Situation
This is a quiet, semi rural setting close to the River Meon and within close proximity to a well regarded village pub and a historic Grade I listed church. Set in the South Downs National Park, there are a plethora of footpaths on the doorstep offering wonderful walks as well as access to the footpath /bridleway along the disused railway line which extends from Wickham to Alton. For day to day amenities there is a local shop in Droxford (1 mile). More comprehensive amenities can be found in the pretty market towns of Bishops Waltham and Wickham both of which offer an excellent variety of independent shops, boutiques and well regarded restaurants and pubs. The cathedral city of Winchester and commercial centres of Southampton and Portsmouth are also within driving distance. For commuters, main road and motorway links are easily accessible whilst rail links to London can be found in Botley, Fareham, Winchester or Petersfield. Southampton International Airport is also just 16 miles away.
