EQUESTRIAN - WATERSIDE - With Georgian origins this charming detached house is situated in beautiful gardens and grounds alongside the banks of the River Meon in the delightful village of Warnford. Approached over a gravel drive the front of the property is screened by a mature yew hedge. A brick path leads to the front door and climbing roses and Virginia creeper clamber over the exterior walls.
Extended over the years, the property provides excellent family accommodation with generous sized bedrooms and reception rooms. The property has retained many original features which are displayed prominently in the main reception rooms and bedrooms. The hub of the house is a farmhouse style kitchen open plan to a living and dining area with a wood burner and an expanse of windows overlooking the pretty gardens. The formal dining room and drawing room occupy the oldest part of the house and display lovely old beams. The drawing room is particularly charming with an open fire place and French doors leading out on to the lovely gardens. A further sitting room gives another cosy reception room. There is also a small study/office leading off the rear lobby with internal access to the garage.
Upstairs on the first floor the generous master bedroom benefits from built in wardrobes and an en suite bathroom. There are three additional double bedrooms, a family bathroom as well as a separate shower room. On the second floor part of the attic has been converted into a large room providing flexible accommodation which could be used as a fifth bedroom or a variety of uses.
The property also benefits from a large barn which accommodates two stables and a tack room. Currently used as a garden store the room above could be converted into additional living space (subject to the necessary planning permission).
In all High Barn represents a wonderful period home with many character features very typical of its age in an easily accessible location with charming grounds.
This property is featured by our Equestrian and Waterside departments.
Set within the South Downs National Park and in the heart of the Meon Valley, the pretty village of Warnford has a local public house, active village hall, and children’s play park. There are a number of local stores in the surrounding villages for everyday needs. The property is almost equidistant to the villages of West Meon and Meonstoke (approx. 2 miles) both of which offer local stores, public houses and primary schools. More extensive facilities can be found in the nearby Cathedral city of Winchester and the attractive market town of Petersfield both of which are approximately 10 miles away and offering fast links to London Waterloo in about 1 hour. The area is also well served by private schools, notably Bedales to the east, Pilgrims and Twyford Preparatory Schools, St Swithun’s and Winchester College within the Winchester area. Road communications are good with the nearby A32 connecting to the A31 and on to the M3 and M25 and the national motorway network, and the A272 to the A3 and onto the M27 and the south coast. For leisure pursuits footpaths and bridleways abound with the South Downs Way and Old Winchester Hill being within close proximity. The area is also popular for other country sports including fishing and shooting whilst to the south The Solent provides world class sailing facilities.
The gardens at High Barn are a particular feature of this property providing a most attractive setting planted to provide colour and interest. The River Meon gently flows through the garden and comes with the benefit of fishing rights, whilst the remainder of the riverside grounds feature areas of lawn, interspersed with mature and specimen trees. A garden walk bordered by well stocked herbaceous borders framed by formal yew hedging leads down to a “secret” garden with willow trees, gunneras and other water loving plants, bordering the river. There is also a small kitchen garden, with soft fruit bushes and fruit trees.
A wooden bridge links the main lawn to the other side of the river with a further area of lawn, planted with a variety of unusual trees including a pair of Indian Bean trees. Immediately adjacent to the rear of the property is a paved terrace, ideal for alfresco entertaining and enjoying the gardens and the sight and sounds of the river. The property also benefits from a paddock which
is accessed by both the garden and a separate entrance from the drive. To the eastern boundary of the paddock there is a tributary of the Meon and a small area of woodland.
