Discreetly tucked away on a highly sought after semi-rural country lane, with far reaching views, is this unique and versatile family home. This particular property had been hand-picked and uniquely designed and extended by the current home owners and offers a tranquil yet cottage style suggestion throughout.
This particular home briefly comprises of a galleried entrance hall, flooded with light with an open stair case and featuring re-claimed oak beams, leading to the sitting room 'Hunters Library' as named by the owners, which offers a cosy feel with a gas fuelled stove, new carpets and double aspect with a bay window overlooking the front of the property. There are two double bedrooms downstairs, one overlooking the front with bay window and the second just behind. A downstairs wet room with walk-in rain fall style shower, oversized double ended bath, WC and basin. The wet room is fully tiled with Italian marble and porcelain tiles and also has luxury lighting with a control panel to change lighting colour and styles as a unique plus. The hall then leads to the hub of the home, being the kitchen dining room through to Orangery. The kitchen comprises of solid oak units with floor and wall mounted units with ample storage including work top space and a kitchen island with further storage. The kitchen has Karndean stone effect flooring, under counter lighting, and ample space for a dining table, and is the perfect social space with oak effect bi-fold doors out onto the rear garden. The kitchen leads to the utility with rear door and new boiler fitted in 2020. The Orangery offers a further bright and airy open social space with panoramic windows overlooking the garden, roof lantern and picture frame style remote controlled gas fire.
Upstairs there are a further three bedrooms. The master bedroom with Velux windows, a vaulted ceiling and a Juliette balcony overlooking the garden, an orchard and views surrounding Catherington countryside. The master also benefits from a good size, fully tiled, en-suite wet room. The further two bedrooms upstairs are a good size. Bedroom one of which is the ideal child's or teenagers' room or home office space, which almost offers a 'hidden' room with low head height access but a great versatile space. There is also a further wet room with fitted shower, basin, heated towel rail and WC. There is ample eaves storage upstairs as well as a very bright and airy feel with the number of windows overlooking the gardens.
The exterior of the property offers just as much as in internal. To the front of the property there is a large driveway for at least eight cars, double garage with power, lighting and insulation as the current home owners have created two workshops within this space. To the side is a large wooden shed accessible at both ends and a greenhouse.
The rear garden is secluded and beautifully laid out with various seating areas and features in the garden consist of a beach style area, orchard area, tropical area and others as well as a purpose made private chalet with 6-seater hot tub jacuzzi. Al fresco dining located outside the bi-fold door on a raised sand stone patio with solid oak beach posts and sleepers around this particular area to give character. The garden is mature and traditional with a variety of fruit trees, shrubs and architectural planting and offers a touch of charm and character but again is incredibly versatile and can still leave much to the imagination.
Located up a country lane, in a very secluded location within a very short walk to fields, the Bird in Hand Pub, Farmers Inn Pub, Horndean Technology College and Kingscourt School. Lots of rural walks and bridle paths for Horse Riding as well as a stone's throw from Horndean Village, Petersfield and Waterlooville precinct. This could be the ideal long-term home for those looking for space and tranquillity as well as a rural location.
Viewings are highly recommended on this unique family home, gas centrally heated and double glazed throughout, filled with character with some original 1940s features re-instated and period features still remaining. The property has been very well maintained and looked after and could potentially be a chain free sale.
