A slice of local history

Sherfield Mill is an elegant country house offering extensive and versatile accommodation over three floors with generous size principal rooms. The gardens create a magnificent setting extending to nearly nine acres and with a tributary of the Blackwater River meandering through the grounds feeding into two substantial ponds.

Dating from the 16th century the house has lovely mellow brick facades with sash windows. An elegant reception hall impresses all who visit with its grand proportions and wonderful staircase sweeping up to the galleried landing. Double doors open to the superb drawing room which has southerly views over the garden and a lovely octagonal garden room beyond. Two further reception rooms are arranged as a study and formal dining room which has access to the kitchen/breakfast room. Off a rear lobby is a utility room and cloakroom.

Six bedrooms, all with fitted storage, and three bathrooms are arranged over the top two floors including an extensive master suite.

Savills says the house has scope for improvement and could be the perfect project to create a highly personalised yet period home.

There are impressive formal gardens, a productive vegetable garden and fruit cages, with an avenue of mixed lime trees leading down to the tennis court, swimming pool and the paddock. Fabulous specimen trees including hornbeam, a tulip tree and impressive oak trees set the scene and add to the scale of the setting.

Sherfield Mill lies within about five miles of Romsey where there is a good choice of shops and amenities with Southampton, Salisbury and Winchester all within easy reach.

Savills quotes a guide price of £1,950,000 and enquiries should be directed to the Winchester office on 01962 841842.
