Tucked away at the end of a no through country lane this delightful house has been subject to a painstaking programme of improvements and refurbishment carried out by the current owners resulting in an outstanding country family house where traditional and modern styles have been skilfully blended.
The accommodation extends to 3,334 sq ft with generously proportioned ground floor accommodation meaning the house works particularly well for entertaining with the drawing
room, dining room and kitchen/family/breakfast room all inter connecting and the latter enjoying direct access onto the westerly facing rear terrace. Also on this floor is the large reception hall, study and family friendly utility/boot room. On the first floor there are five bedrooms all with wonderful views over the neighbouring farmland and countryside. The charming twin aspect master bedroom has views to the south and west and
has ensuite bathroom. The four bedrooms are served by both a family bathroom as well as a family shower room. The main house is complimented by an exceptional two storey guest
annexe which is situated a few minutes walk down the garden making it close enough but also independent enough to be ideal for guests or visiting friends/relatives. Orientated away from
the house for optimum privacy the building is surprisingly large and totals 1,476 sq ft comprising a 26ft sitting/games room, 26ft kitchen/dining room and a 31ft dormitory style bed room.
The property occupies a secluded and rural position neighbouring a traditional farm on the edge of the village of Michelmersh with its church and two public houses. Surrounded by rolling countryside and close to the popular market towns of Romsey (4.5 miles to Waitrose) and Stockbridge (8 miles). Both offer an excellent range of high street and independent retailers and public houses and restaurants. Outdoor pursuits are well catered for with world class fishing on the Test and many opportunities for walking and riding with access to a network of public footpaths and bridleways, as well. as sailing on the south coast. The M3 provides convenient links to London and the national road network. Winchester, offering an excellent range of shops, restaurants, cultural and leisure facilities, is approximately 15.5 miles away with rail services into London Waterloo with journey times of about 1 hour. Southampton airport is approximately 13 miles away. There are
extensive options for schooling in the area including Winchester College, St Swithuns, Stroud and Peter Symonds Sixth Form.
Enjoying a high degree of privacy, the grounds total 1.6 acres and are attractively laid out with an extensive paved terrace adjoining the rear of the property leading onto an area of classically styled formal garden with yew hedging and a rectangular ornamental pond. To the left is a well-stocked
vegetable and flower garden with raised beds. The remainder of the garden is given over to expanses of lawn with a combination of low level hedging and stock fencing allowing an open outlook over the neighbouring farmland. The swimming pool and tennis court are set slightly off to one side of the main house adjacent to the guest annexe. The separate orchard, beyond the tennis court, provides a variety of eating court, provides a variety of eating and cooking apples as well as
a beautiful view of the grounds.
