Full Details

The setting of Lapwings is what sets it apart from so many properties, it is exquisite, the views are simply breathtaking, and the plot is a stunning level plot surrounded by countryside. My clients have resided at the property for 18 years, and during their period of ownership have carried out significant alterations and upgrades from 2008, including rewiring, plumbing and the construction of the oak 3 bay car barn. As soon as you enter you are aware of the space and light that floods into this property; the proportions are superb with a glorious, and substantial, triple aspect reception room measuring some 40 feet in length, with an orangery overlooking the garden to one end, and a garden room with bi fold doors to two sides opening up completely onto a decked terrace, allowing you to benefit from the glorious views whatever the weather. The kitchen/dining room, again, is substantial in size with an extensive range of cupboards with granite work tops, an island unit with breakfast bar and a range of appliances, along with a hot tap and chilled filter water. Bifold doors lead onto the decked terrace. A raised contemporary gas, living flame fire is back to back with the snug. All of the principal rooms are situated to the rear to benefit from the outstanding views. Off the kitchen is a side lobby with access to both front and rear, this leads to a large office and utility room. Upstairs, all of the bedrooms are of double proportions and are situated to the rear, again, to benefit from the far reaching countryside views. Bedroom 1 in particular is truly impressive, with a central divider for the dressing room and bedroom. Double doors and glazed panels open onto a substantial balcony - sunny all day long and perfect to catch the last of the evening sun. The ensuite bathroom is stunning with a Cianstone egg shaped bath, twin Cianstone wash hand basins and a large walk-in shower; this triple aspect suite has views towards Portsdown Hill and the surrounding countryside. There is an additional shower room in bedroom 2 and a further bathroom completes the first floor.

The property is situated at the end of an unmade lane and approached via a gated entrance, leading to an extensive shingle driveway and in turn to the car barn. The plot extends to 0.7 of an acre, south facing, with direct access onto a footpath, which in turn leads to a network of footpaths, one of which gives access to Chilling Beach and its stunning rugged coastline. Lapwing has all the benefits of a rural setting with wildlife in abundance, Polo pony training in the adjacent field and yet minutes away from amenities. Titchfield is just down the road and is a beautiful unspoilt medieval village, home to an old Anglo Saxon church. The village has a thriving community and people flock to the boutique shops, cafes and public houses to enjoy the relaxed and friendly vibe. Titchfield Haven Nature Reserve is on the outskirts of the village where you can walk to Hill Head beach and Meon Shore.
