Description A truly beautiful Grade II listed family home set within this picturesque rural hamlet that comes with a wealth of both charm and character including an array of original exposed beams, open fireplaces and brick flooring. We believe that the property is approximately 500 years old, having then been thoughtfully extended in more recent years. Accommodation on the ground floor briefly comprises a drawing room complete with a beautiful Inglenook fireplace, sitting room, 15ft office/study with the heart of the house then being the stunning 33ft kitchen/dining/family room, there is then a beautifully fitted well-proportioned utility room, shower room and cloakroom. On the first floor the property has three good-sized bedrooms including a master bedroom with vaulted ceiling and walk-in wardrobe and then family bathroom. Additional benefits include a good-sized dry cellar, beautiful 36ft detached barn, off road parking for numerous vehicles and a beautiful Â¾ of an acre mature rear garden with panoramic views across the Meon Valley. There is also existing planning permission for a three bay car port to the front.
Location Soberton is a pretty village in the heart of the Meon Valley that forms part of the South Downs National Park and offers many lovely walks along the network of surrounding bridle ways. The market towns of Bishops Waltham and Wickham are also close by, both of which offer a broad range of shops and local amenities. The Cathedral City of Winchester is also just under half an hour away, as is Southampton Airport and all main motorway access routes are also within easy reach.
Inside An attractive pitched entrance porch leads through to an original oak front door which in turn leads into the entrance hall from which there are further doors through to the sitting room. The sitting room is a well-proportioned room with windows to both front and side, has a feature open fireplace, oak floorboards, an array of exposed beams and brickwork with a door to one side of the room leading through to an inner hallway. From the hallway there are doors leading down to the cellar, a cloakroom and the kitchen. The drawing room has a window to the front and French doors leading out onto the rear courtyard with the main focal point of the room then being the beautiful Inglenook fireplace with original bread oven to the side and oak mantel. The room also has the original brick floor, wall lights and a door to one side that leads through to a good-sized office/study which again has an attractive open fireplace, original brick flooring, an under stairs cupboard and fitted shelving to one wall. There is then a second staircase to one side of the room providing access to the first floor whilst a further door at one end of the room then leads directly through to both a modern shower room and beautifully fitted modern utility room. The utility room has been fitted with a matching range of cottage style wall and base units with oak worktops, has a Butler sink unit, plumbing space for a washing machine and further appliance space. The room also has Travertine flooring, spotlights, exposed beams and woodwork and a stable door leading out to the rear courtyard where there is then an adjoining storeroom. The heart of the house is the kitchen/dining/family room which forms part of the extension and is a beautiful 33ft room. The first part of the room is currently used as a study area, has a window overlooking the rear courtyard, original exposed beams, Travertine tiled flooring and a working well. An opening then leads through to a lovely light and airy kitchen/dining area which again has an array of exposed oak beams with the kitchen itself having been fitted with a bespoke matching range of wall and base units with cupboards and drawers under. There is a central island, a double width Range style cooker, a Butler sink unit, plumbing space for a dishwasher and further appliance space and again this room has Travertine tiled flooring, a vaulted ceiling and a set of bi-folding doors leading out onto the rear patio area, with the room also enjoying views across the rear garden.
On the first floor landing there is a window to the rear with doors that then lead through to the master bedroom which is an impressive room with a vaulted ceiling and original exposed beams, oak floorboards and an opening to one side of the room leading through to a walk-in wardrobe which could easily be converted back to an en-suite. Bedroom two, again a good-sized double room, overlooks the front of the property and has an open fireplace, exposed floorboards and a staircase leading down to the ground floor (office/study). Bedroom three has a window to the front and a cast-iron fireplace whilst the bathroom has been fitted with a suite comprising a panel enclosed bath with shower attachment over, matching wash hand basin and WC.
Outside To the front of the property there is a large shingled driveway providing off road parking for numerous vehicles leading to a 36ft detached modern barn with double doors, power and light. There is then side access through to a beautiful mature rear garden (approximately Â¾ of an acre) where there is a large patio area including a rear courtyard which has been selectively planted with box hedging and various flowers and shrubs, leading on to the main garden which is mainly laid to lawn and again well stocked with a wide variety of mature fruit trees, flowers and shrubs. There is also a garden shed directly behind the barn and wood store, with the garden itself being fully enclosed. The house also lends itself to an annexe to one side which would incorporate the office, shower room and utility with the potential of a bedroom directly above, obviously subject to the relevant planning consents. To fully appreciate both the property's location and the accommodation on offer, an early viewing truly is a must.
