Property Summary

An exquisite residence of 3000 sq ft situated in an idyllic, peaceful location set in glorious 6 acre gardens.

Full Details

Rarely does an opportunity arise to acquire such an exceptional residence extending to in excess of 3000 square feet of exquisite accommodation, situated in an idyllic, peaceful location along a quiet country lane and set amongst 6.45 acre grounds comprising formal gardens, a truly outstanding Arboretum and paddock areas, bordered by over 300 yards of stream, and with various outbuildings.

Closewood House is truly stunning with both the exterior elevations and interior structure being quite striking. The property nestles amongst its own private grounds, approached by a sweeping carriage driveway and hidden from view by a curve of mature clipped yew hedges, with a vista from the house over a rectangular rill with Lily Pond and planted parterre style Gardens. The property dates back to the Queen Ann period, with later additions and was once part of the Southwick Estate. The property's architecture from the front elevation is truly stunning, similar to a Provencal Bastide House complete with rose clad Veranda and French doors. The grounds were expertly designed by a predecessor over 50 years ago; a plan still exists giving all of the Latin names of the numerous specimen trees planted throughout the Arboretum. The design gives flower and leaf colour throughout the year and is complimented by a meandering stream to one boundary giving way to views of the surrounding countryside. Our clients have resided at the property for 12 years and during that period have undertaken a sympathetic refurbishment of the property both internally and externally to an exacting specification with attention to detail throughout with no expense spared.

The property exudes charm from the very moment you enter and benefits from many glorious features. The drawing room is approached via a flagstone hallway with stunning ornate cornicing and centres on a marble open fireplace sourced from Christie's, as is the dining room fireplace. There are three glorious reception rooms, in addition to a Fired Earth farmhouse style kitchen with double butler's sink and an Electric Aga. On the first floor are 5/6 bedrooms, with the sixth bedroom currently utilised as a dressing room to bedroom one and two bathrooms. All of the bedrooms are of double portions with delightful views over the gardens. Externally are various outbuildings; an old potting shed which has been transformed into a superb office/study, double barn style garage, log room and a green house.

This really is a spectacular residence situated in an extremely sought-after peaceful location on the edge of the Southwick Estate (8,000 acres), which has been designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty with superb riding on its doorstep, in addition to a plethora of countryside walks nearby. There is also an 18 golf course within walking distance from Closewood House, with further courses at Corhampton and Petersfield. Local amenities can be found at nearby Denmead.

Although in a rural situation, the property is well positioned for commuters being within easy reach of the A/M27 Road networks and the A3 to London. Denmead is also conveniently close to the pretty market towns of Bishop's Waltham and Wickham. Havant train station with trains to London in 1hr17 is 5 miles away, and Petersfield and Winchester train station are 12 and 20 miles respectively; both have fast trains to London.
