Broughton, Stockbridge, Hampshire So20
An impressive detached family home of 5,392 sq ft offering some exceptional accommodation, ideal for larger families and positioned in what is undoubtedly the favoured lane within this Test Valley village.
Broughton is a highly desirable Test Valley village with an excellent shop and post office, a public house, doctor's surgery and primary school. The market town of Stockbridge is within 5 miles and offers a wider range of facilities including boutique shops, restaurants and the renowned butchers, John Robinson. Further east is the cathedral city of Winchester with various sports clubs, cinema and the Theatre Royal. The cathedral city of Salisbury lies to the west. There are excellent schools within the area in both the public and private sector with Godolphin School for Girls in Salisbury, Farleigh School, Hampshire Collegiate School, Rookwood School and St Swithun's School for Girls in Winchester, together with Winchester Collage and Pilgrims Prep School. There are mainline railway stations at Winchester and Andover (London Waterloo approximately 60 minutes) also Grateley (Waterloo 80 minutes). Communications by road via the M27 to the south linking with the M3 and the A303 to the north.
A fabulous family home occupying a prime position within this sought after Test Valley village. Bourne House has been created by the current owners and it is evident that a great deal of effort and care has been put into its creation. The accommodation is particularly well thought through and offers some exceptional living spaces. The front door opens onto an impressive lobby with atrium linking through to a reception hall which makes a particularly positive impact and off this central position access there is access through to the principal living areas. The drawing room, with its large fireplace and attractive aspect out over the front and rear gardens is a particularly comfortable space, ideal for more formal entertaining. On the opposite site of this reception hall is the dining room, which again is well-proportioned with an aspect out over the front gardens. The kitchen/breakfast/family room is a truly impressive living space and is essentially arranged in three main zones including the kitchen/breakfast area with its full range of floor and wall mounted units including cupboard and drawer sections with attractive work surfaces over. The large central island also has a bank of fitted units with a large work surface over incorporating a breakfast bar. This area provides a perfect vantage point out over the dining area, and beyond this is the family area, which again is particularly generous and centred around a fireplace providing a particularly welcoming and cosy feel. Along the rear of this principal living space is a bank of folding doors opening out onto the rear terrace and gardens beyond. A large play room is accessed off this kitchen area and again perfect for those wanting a further living space for more informal occasions. A utility/boot room offers a practical space and area for the various appliances. At first floor level there is a large master bedroom suite with a separate fitted dressing room and en suite bathroom. There are three further bedrooms, the guest bedroom having en suite facilities as well as its own balcony. The remaining bedrooms share a family bathroom.
The property is approached via electric gates which open onto a stone chipping driveway leading up to the parking/turning area in front of the property. The front gardens are laid to lawn with an ornamental pond and the house is well set back within its plot. The more formal area of garden lies to the rear and, again, is largely laid to lawn with an area of hard standing at one end, and with neatly slipped hedgerows, the boundaries are clearly defined. The space outside the property is ideal for those with families as it is largely open and provides a fantastic space for recreation. In total the grounds extend to 0.83 acres. There is planning permission for a double garage (Planning Ref. 15/01265/FULLS)
Mains water, electricity and drainage. Oil fired central heating.
