Property Summary

A truly impressive Victorian wing extending to 4,642 square feet of characterful accommodation situated in a gloriously tucked away position down a private lane set amongst 0.35 acres of private gardens with outdoor swimming pool, ample driveway parking and garaging.

West Ploverfield occupies a tranquil position along a single track lane where there are just a few privately owned houses a short distance from Old Bursledon’s conservation village. Very rarely does an opportunity arise to acquire such an exquisite home; West Ploverfield is truly exceptional with both striking exterior elevations and interior structure. The property was subject to extensive works by the previous owner in 2000 and has subsequently been completely refurbished and upgraded by my clients during their four-year ownership, the result is an exquisite family home with the perfect juxtaposition of contemporary finishes amongst original character features. It is the hallmarks of quality throughout with well-planned and proportioned accommodation with gloriously high ceilings. It is apparent as soon as you enter the property that this is no ordinary home; the Entrance Hall has Victorian style tiled flooring and leads through to a vast inner hallway with travertine flooring (this extends throughout the ground floor, except for the Playroom and Sitting Room). There are three reception rooms in total; the Sitting Room is sumptuous and opulent with French oak flooring and a stone open fireplace. Double doors lead to a wraparound conservatory, which in turn gives access to the parking area and the enclosed children’s play area. The Family Room is open plan to the simply stunning Kitchen/Dining Room. This whole area is perfect for families or entertaining. There is also an adjacent Playroom which could work as a ground floor bedroom if needed as there is an adjacent wet room. The Kitchen/Dining room itself extends to some 29 ft in length with an extensive range of bespoke shaker cabinets with quartz work tops, large island unit and breakfast bar, two butler’s sinks and a range of high specification appliances. The Dining area retains original floorboards which have been painted to give a stylish contemporary look with bespoke fitted bench seating. Situated off the kitchen is a Utility room and large Boot Room. Upstairs are five bedrooms, all of double proportions with bedroom five currently utilised as a Dressing Room to the adjacent master suite. The master bedroom is particularly impressive with a stunning contemporary en-suite shower room and large walk-in wardrobe. A freestanding bath nestles beautifully on a raised plinth in the bay window overlooking the delightful gardens. Three further bedrooms benefit from en-suite shower rooms and there is also a substantial laundry room.

The property is approached via a private lane and this in turn leads to West Ploverfield. There is ample driveway parking which leads to the detached garage with an internal Office. The majority of the gardens are situated to the front offering complete privacy framed by clipped yew hedges and magnificent Scots Pine. The swimming pool area is completely fenced and is showcased by a large sandstone terrace and has been recently fitted with an electric safety cover. In addition leading out of the Conservatory is a low maintenance children's play area with Astro turf and terrace for informal al fresco dining.

Old Bursledon is a beautiful village on the west bank of the River Hamble and is a designated conservation area. This historical village retains close ties with the sea and the Elephant Boatyard, which still remains, and dates back centuries where Henry VII’s fleet was built.    By the 1870’s the shipbuilding trade had disappeared from the village and the main industry was the growing of strawberries.  The Strawberry Trail heritage walk still exists where walkers can enjoy the easy riverside, coastal and country park routes.  There is also a fashionable pub, The Jolly Sailor, on the banks of the Hamble which has its own public slipway where you can arrive by SUP and enjoy a relaxed vibe on the terrace overlooking the marina.  Bursledon railway line is a local line connecting with Southampton Parkway picking up fast trains reaching London Waterloo in 1 hour 10 minutes.  Equally the village is convenient for motorway links to the M27 and M3.
