Kings Somborne, Stockbridge, Hampshire, So20


A large detached Grade II Listed former farmhouse comprising a fine timber frame original section full of beams and steeped in character which lies to the rear of the house, with a large three storey Victorian extension being added later featuring an elegant façade with sash windows, all beneath an attractive clay tile roof. The plot extends to approaching an acre with the main partly walled garden extending to the southern side of the property. There is plenty of off-road parking, a garage/workshop and separate brick under tile outbuilding behind the house, an ideal gym or home office space. The extensive family accommodation which has the benefit of underfloor heating throughout most of the ground floor comprises a large reception hall and cloakroom, drawing room, fine formal dining room, family room (all three with fireplaces and log burners), a study/library, split level kitchen with island and adjoining utility/laundry. A door and stairs descend from the kitchen into a large cellar divided into three areas. To the first floor there is a stunning principal bedroom suite with large dressing room and en suite shower all beneath a high beamed vaulted ceiling, three further large double bedrooms (one with en suite) and a family bathroom. The second floor offers two further large double bedrooms and a loft area that could potentially be converted into a further en suite. The property has the benefit of direct access onto the Test Way offering excellent walking and cycling throughout the Test Valley and into the town of Stockbridge itself.

The property is situated in the hamlet of Brook, just outside the village of King’s Somborne which offers everyday facilities including a Post Office/store, primary school, church and public house. The picturesque town of Stockbridge, traversed by the River Test, is just five minutes away to the north, the abbey town of Romsey is approximately seven miles to the south, and the cathedral cities of Winchester and Salisbury are both within about fifteen and twenty five minutes’ drive respectively. There are also excellent road links to London and the West Country via the M3 and A303 and also to the South Coast.
