Leisure pursuits aplenty at Studwell Lodge

A significant Georgian house of almost nine thousand square feet, beautifully located within the heart of the Meon Valley, has much to offer not only in terms of accommodation but also a range of leisure pursuits.

Nestling within a couple of acres of beautiful gardens, additional acreage is laid out as paddocks which lead down to the river and single bank fishing rights. A hard tennis court is discreetly positioned, beyond which is a pond, terraced rose beds and lawn with adjacent summerhouse.

The Meon Valley has a range of outdoor pursuits including walking and good riding country, with a cricket club in Droxford, golf at Swanmore and Corhampton and sailing nearby at Hamble and The Solent.

Studwell Lodge has been wonderfully restored and upon entering the hallway there is a sense of space and light with an impressive full height window overlooking the grounds. A feature curved staircase rises from an inner reception hall and connects the two principal floors of the house.

Four elegant reception rooms all have open fireplaces, sash windows and shutters and for those who enjoy baking and spoiling the family and guests with culinary delights, the kitchen will hold great appeal with its bespoke cabinets designed around an Aga and a large central island. This room connects with the outside on the east and west aspects and also flows through to a versatile glazed area which is currently arranged as a gym and leads through to an extensive conservatory, ideal for extravagant parties.

Eight bedrooms are accompanied by six bathrooms on the first floor with two further bedrooms and a bathroom on the top floor.

For car enthusiasts there is garaging and a large carport.
