This is one of our Country Houses
Meticulously designed by the current owners with impressive entertaining and family space in mind, this stunning property boasts striking reception areas and a well designed layout that provides a good connection between the indoor and outdoor
spaces, whilst maximising on the outstanding view.
A spacious reception hall sets the scene for the property with polished large format tiles with under floor heating giving a clean contemporary feel that continues through to the fabulous kitchen/breakfast/family area. The superbly appointed kitchen comprises sleek contemporary units, centre island and high end Gaggenau appliances to include an induction hob, extractor hood, teppanyake plate, steam oven, two ovens
and microwave. The open plan family/breakfast area has a bank of bi-fold doors to the front terrace and gardens and a freestanding contemporary wood burning stove as an attractive
focal point. An expansive boot/utility room compliments the kitchen and includes a laundry chute from the first floor and a large air cooled pantry. The equally impressive drawing room
and TV/sitting room are divided by a statement, slate covered floor to ceiling fireplace with open fire. An opening leads to the formal dining area with French doors to the rear terrace whilst
beyond the TV room there is a generous study and a reception room used as a library.
On the first floor the opulent master suite has an outstanding elevated view of The Solent and comprises a large dressing room and four piece en suite bathroom. A further guest suite with dressing room and en suite bathroom also boasts superb
views, whilst the three further bedrooms are served by a separate family bathroom.
In addition to the main house there is also a detached triple garage with annexe room above, currently used as a party room with fully functioning bar, dance floor and cloakroom.
The property is situated in a wonderful elevated position on Portsdown Hill commanding exceptional 180 degree views over Portsmouth Harbour, The Spinnaker Tower, The Solent and Isle of Wight beyond. As well as offering awe inspiring views, the location is also highly convenient for the commercial centres of Portsmouth, Southampton and Winchester. For commuters, the M27 provides access to the west and the M3 road network to
the midlands and the north. The A3 provides road connections to London, whilst rail links can be found at Porchester and Fareham station (3 & 0.7 miles respectively). For travel further afield Southampton Airport (15.5 miles) offers domestic and international flights. There are comprehensive amenities and shopping facilities to be found at nearby Fareham town centre and Gunwharf Quays. Recreational pursuits are also well served;
those with an affinity with the water will be attracted by the world renowned sailing facilities to be found on The Solent whilst for country pursuits the property is situated between The South
Downs National Park to the north and east and the New Forest to the west.
The property sits within a plot of just under 1 acre set back from the road at the end of a gated driveway. The house is positioned fairly centrally in the plot with the rear garden sloping gently
upwards from the house. The rear gardens are largely laid to lawn and are well screened to all sides providing a high degree of privacy. There is a natural pond area which provides a haven for
wildlife whilst immediately adjacent to the house is an expansive terrace providing an outdoor entertaining area. The gardens to the front are landscaped to include a variety of shaped shrubs
which provide interest, colour and privacy but do not detract from the outstanding views which can be enjoyed from the south facing terrace.
