Built just over 10 years ago, this Hampshire family house offers light and airy living spaces and room for all the family. Let’s take a look...
Situated in Hampshire’s charming Test Valley, this family home offers bucketloads of character from first glance. The mixed material exterior, with brickwork and wood cladding, and hints of an oak frame immediately make you want to know more...
The downstairs of the property is largely comprised of an open-plan kitchen, dining and living area, offering space and a lovely flow – perfect for busy family life. The double doors leading out into the garden also provide a link to the outdoors and a useful spot for kids and pups to run in and out.
With open hallways above there’s a wonderful double height to the hall, causing light to flood into all corners of the exposed beams. Tucked away beside the kitchen there’s also a handy utility room with all your appliances close to hand.
Going through a set large doors off the open plan area, there’s a lovely additional living room. With a log-burner for chilly evenings, and double doors out onto the garden for summer days. It’s a perfect spot for all seasons. Also off the open plan space is a large study, ideal for working from home, homework or to become a ground floor fifth bedroom.
Heading up the turning staircase you rise into the grand arched ceilings above and find the elegant, skylight-lit gallery hallway. This area really enhances the sense of space and flow in the home. The light shade of the oak beams keep things airy and bright.
There are currently four bedrooms to choose from in this Hampshire home, but the master is of course the one to nab. As well as boasting an en suite and walk in wardrobe, it has access to a balcony, the perfect spot for a morning coffee.
With its elevated position, this lovely home has stunning views of the picturesque River Test. There are gardens surrounding the house, as well as a good-sized terrace, so whether you want to kick a ball with the kids on the lawn or relax and soak in the view, there’s a spot for you.
This home is currently on the market with Savills, use the link to continue exploring.
