Property Summary

An exciting opportunity to rent this substantial and
imposing residence originating from the Victorian and Edwardian Era, extending
to 6,279sq ft and set in glorious 5.24 acre private gardens with the additional
benefit of a tennis court.

This house is imbedded with character and history,
with the understanding that this was once home to General Oswald, Intelligence
Corps during World War II. Our clients have resided at the property for 30
years and have completely renovated and re-modelled the house, as well as
largely extending the property. On the night of 26th July 2005 the house burnt
down, and it took just under 18 months to completely rebuild including a
spacious second floor extension. The property has been carefully replanned with
the element of light being at the forefront, with most rooms dual or triple
aspect, as well as underfloor heating and space saving radiators. On entering
the main house the property showcases a stunning bifurcated staircase in the
reception hall, along with a study, utility room, storage cupboard and
cloakroom. Both the dining room and kitchen/breakfast room have superb views
over the stunning gardens and benefit from large windows and French doors. The
kitchen is fitted with an extensive range of solid maple fronted cupboards,
granite worktops, a black four oven electric Aga and a range of Miele
appliances. Both the living room and drawing room have double doors to the
conservatory, original pine shutters and oak flooring throughout. The spacious
drawing room also has a bay window with double doors opening onto the garden
and benefitting from glorious over the grounds. The conservatory has multiple
doors opening up completely and leading to the beautiful grounds.

On first floor are four bedrooms; three of which
have en suite facilities; the master bedroom also benefits from a dressing
room. A family bathroom completes the first floor. On the second floor is a
spacious landing with an obscure glazed lantern and balcony; this accentuates
the light and airy feel throughout the whole house. On this floor are two
further en suite bedrooms and two additional rooms, which are currently used as
a study and playroom. Majority of the bedrooms benefit from glorious views across
the gardens.

House is approached via a gated entrance and
sweeping gravel driveway. The grounds are truly exceptional extending to 5.24
acres in total, comprising formal gardens, tennis court and a paddock. The
formal garden has an extensive area laid to lawn with various specimen trees
including copper beech, silver birch, oak, cedar, conifer, twisted willow and
fruit trees, an extensive terrace, well stock flower beds and a magnificent
architectural pond with fountain.

The property is situated on the edge of Longparish
Village, which is home to a shop/Post Office, primary school, church, bus
service and playing field, along with riverside walks. Fairleigh School, which
is highly reputable is only a 12 minute drive from the property, whilst
Marlborough College is just 40 minutes. There is easy access to London Waterloo
either from Andover or Whitchurch Railway station in just over an hour. There
is access to both South West and London via A303, which is also close by.
