This is a rare opportunity to acquire a truly handsome family home extending to 4821 square feet, situated within an exclusive and prestigious development in Warsash adjacent to Holly Hill Park with local access to the River Hamble. This exceptional property was built to an exacting specification by my clients in 2000 who have resided in the house since its construction.
On entering the house the grand proportions are immediately apparent, with the Entrance Hall being some 20 ft in length. The elegant triple aspect Drawing Room is flooded with light and centres on a gas coal effect fire with double doors leading to the garden. There are four further well proportioned reception rooms, including a spectacular triple aspect Dining Room, Study and a superb Home Office/Hobbies Room, fully fitted with desks and shelving units. The Kitchen/Breakfast Room is exceptional in both design and fit with Amtico flooring, traditional cupboards with granite worktops, bespoke dresser, walk in pantry and central island with bar; additionally there is a 7 ring stainless steel Britannia Range Cooker. The staircase is centrally placed within the entrance hall leading to the impressive galleried landing with four double bedrooms leading off it; the Master in particular benefits from a dressing room and a beautifully appointed bathroom suite, whilst the Guest Suite has an adjacent Sitting Room and ensuite bathroom, a perfect suite for guests. A further staircase leads to the second floor which provides an excellent space for multiple uses and could also readily be converted into an additional suite.
This beautiful architect designed house is approached down a private lane with just four other properties and offers an extensive block paved driveway leading to the triple garage; above the garages a separate door leads to an independent Annexe/Studio. The south west facing gardens extend to an acre, divided into half an acre of formal grounds exhibiting beautiful specimen trees and mature shrub borders; a large circular stone terrace provides a perfect setting in which to relax and entertain. Adjacent to the formal garden a gate leads through to the paddock and apple orchard.
Warsash is a charming maritime village which is home to the Hook Nature Reserve, a 500 acre inter-tidal area and is also one of the most popular centres for sailing enthusiasts on the South Coast with a well subscribed Yacht Club and the Royal Southern and Royal Southampton Yacht Clubs nearby. There are links to Hamble Village via a ferry for pedestrians and cyclists where you can access the Royal Victoria Country Park.
The centres of Southampton and Portsmouth are approximately 10 and 13 miles away respectively and both offer excellent shopping facilities. Junction 8 of the M27 links to the M3 for London and the Cathedral City of Winchester. Southampton International Airport (9 miles) offers excellent connections overseas with the adjacent Parkway station connecting to London Waterloo in one hour and ten minutes. With regard to schooling, Hook with Warsash Primary School and Brookfield Community School are nearby.
