About this property

TENURE: Freehold

A beautifully situated and deceptively spacious substantial family home located within the idyllic Forest of Bere. The detached property occupies a secluded setting surrounded by ancient woodland, enveloped in its own delightful grounds approaching 3 acres. The house is believed to have been built in the 1950s and has been significantly extended in more recent times, including converting a garage into the family room and adding a loft room which has further potential to be an annexe/studio subject to the necessary consents and permissions being obtained. The house has also been extended to the rear increasing the size of the sitting and dining rooms; The house is now in need of modernisation throughout but as such represents a rare opportunity for a buyer to create a unique and individual home to suit their own needs.

The ground floor accommodation comprises a drawing room, study, sitting room and dining room, all with fabulous views over the gardens. To the eastern end of the property there is a kitchen, adjoining utility room, family room and rear lobby connecting to the garage with internal stairs leading to the room above. On the first-floor there is a main bedroom with en suite bathroom and four further bedrooms served by a family bathroom.

The house is situated in a prime position on the edge of the attractive Meon Valley within the South Downs National Park surrounded by ancient woodland and wonderful walks including access to the footpath/bridleway along the disused railway line which extends from Fareham to Alton. For day to day amenities there are shops, independent boutiques, restaurants and pubs in Wickham and further High Street stores in Winchester, Southampton or Portsmouth all within driving distance. For commuters, main road and motorway links are easily accessible whilst rail links to London can be found in Botley, Fareham, Havant, Winchester or Petersfield. Southampton International Airport is also just 13 miles away.

The house is surrounded by private gardens and enjoys views looking out towards Portsdown Hill. Enclosed by woodland, the grounds are wonderfully secluded with mature borders, paved seating area and a outdoor swimming pool. An aslphalt driveway leads to a detached garage, a second garage attached to the house and a good size tarmac parking area for several cars.
