Charming home with superb rural views

The Barn House is a generous family home, well located in a quiet position in the village of Hurstbourne Priors. Sitting at the top of the Test Valley, wonderful countryside surrounds the village and Whitchurch is nearby with a good range of amenities.

The house works well as a family home, is well presented and sits in an elevated position looking over parkland. The accommodation is incredibly versatile with the added potential to enlarge into the attached garage and workshop which has attic storage above accessed from the main house on the first floor.

The current layout already provides spacious family accommodation with a superb formal drawing room with a delightful south easterly dual aspect with views across countryside towards the church. A lovely open fire sets the scene for the winter months and French doors allow full enjoyment of the garden in the summer. The large dining room has a high ceiling and a feature fireplace.

Leading off the other side of the welcoming reception hall is an excellent farmhouse style kitchen with an Aga, further appliances, granite work surfaces, space for a central dining table, walk in larder and an adjacent utility/boot room.

Some of the best views are from the master bedroom on the first floor and this room also has a good range of cupboards, an adjoining bathroom with a second double bedroom with fitted wardrobes having potential as a superb dressing room if required.

Three further double bedrooms and two bathrooms lead off the landing and from an inner landing double doors open into the attic space above the garage.

Walled gardens of a third of an acre surround the house, with beech hedging providing seclusion. At the front there is plenty of parking and a pretty archway leading to the garage with the workshop and wine store behind. The gardens are attractively laid out with lawns culminating in herbaceous borders, apple trees and a lovely pathway covered by a pergola as a focal point to be admired from the paved terrace.

This is a peaceful location set in lovely countryside yet within short distances of schools and commuter routes with a mainline service from Whitchurch into London.
