Classically styled with red brick elevations and a clay tiled roof, Dublin Farm House has origins in the 1700s with later additions all carefully undertaken to enhance the character and transform the space inside. This is now an enviable family home on the edge of Wherwell in the Test Valley and sits in half an acre of gardens with outbuildings and a swimming pool with pool house.

Grade II listed, the house is perfectly framed by a mellow brick wall and pretty gardens on the southern side.

The stone floor in the magnificent open reception hall continues through into a sitting room with a wood burning stove and this room links with a rear hallway, utility room and a versatile room with a wall of glazing opening to a private courtyard and with an adjacent bathroom. These rooms combined could be used as an annexe if required.

The formal drawing room leads off the dining room on the western flank and is a fine room with a wood burning stove and a door to the garden. The dining room has original wooden flooring and is light due to its double aspect.

Double doors from the reception hall open to an inner hallway and the doors are repeated for access into the fantastic kitchen/breakfast room which is a later addition to the house and provides a light open space ideal for family occupation. Sliding doors in a contemporary wall of glazing open the terrace.

Completing the picture on the ground floor is a snug or study, cloakroom and a door to a large, dry basement.

On the first floor five bedrooms are accessed from two staircases together with three fabulous bathrooms. The master bedroom is particularly fine with a vaulted ceiling, exposed timbers and lovely views over the garden.

Surrounded by the glorious countryside of the Test Valley, this house has a lovely backdrop and the gardens are well stocked. A five bar gate opens to a gravel driveway, parking and garaging. The terrace at the rear of the house is perfect for entertaining through the warmer months and the swimming pool is in a private setting with a range of fruit trees at the top of the garden.

Lying about ten miles from Winchester and about five from Andover, Wherwell is not remote and there are good connections from here across the southern region by road and rail.
