Situated in a prestigious residential road in the heart of Alverstoke a stunning and iconic Arts and Crafts residence built in 1937 offering 2524 square feet of well proportioned accommodation. Paddock House was formerly the Royal Navy Captain’s house for Fort Monckton and has been the much-loved family home of my clients for ten years; during their time of ownership they have undertaken sympathetic updating works whilst retaining the original character features of the house. The property sits centrally within its glorious half an acre of gardens, approached via a sweeping driveway flanked by mature specimen trees providing a sophisticated entrance to the house, there is extensive driveway parking and a double garage. The hallmarks of the era are immediately evident at the front of the property with a beautiful thatched porch, symmetrical porthole windows and original front door. On entering, the Entrance Hall features the original solid oak floor and draws you into the heart of the house; the Sitting Room is a beautiful dual aspect room overlooking the garden with an open fireplace and original solid oak floor. The Kitchen has been fitted to a very high standard with ample wooden cupboards, granite worktops and a range of integrated appliances; wooden bi-fold doors lead into the Dining Room which is a generous room perfect for entertaining and relaxing with friends and family. Leading off the Kitchen is a spacious Conservatory installed by Urban Developments in 2020 which is currently fitted as a Utility Room and used by my clients for informal dining; double doors lead to a terrace outside. Two further reception rooms complete the ground floor. Upstairs are four large double bedrooms and the master suite has a wonderful dressing room and newly fitted Shower Room earlier this year. Outside, at one end of the rear elevation is a fine example of an Arts and Crafts sun loggia with a circular brick pillar and original quarry tile floor; this area is a perfect spot to enjoy the beautiful south facing garden with its sculpted yew hedges at either end and stunning York Stone pathways stretching across the garden, the back border has mature trees and deep flowering shrub flowerbeds. The gardens are a particular feature of the property, extensive and beautifully landscaped with mature trees and shrubs.
