Comfortable country life awaits

Is it possible to enjoy a comfortable country life without the hope of easy commuting meeting its Waterloo?

Very much so, thinks Zaza Oswald, partner in charge of lettings in Hampshire for Carter Jonas. In fact the way that Waterloo features is because the tenants of three magnificent houses that are currently available can make Waterloo station their destination of choice.

Oddly enough, two of the properties are called Manor Farm House, and each is Grade II listed. At Hurstbourne Priors (commuting station Whitchurch) the property (£3,950 per calendar month) dates from the late 18th Century, the height of the Georgian architectural period, with spacious and elegant accommodation over three floors consisting of six bedrooms, four bathrooms, four reception rooms, and an enclosed garden – a gardener is included as part of the rent.

At East Tytherley (£4,000 pcm, station: Grateley), the property dates from the 1640s but is being completely refurbished ready for the start of the September school term. It has five bedrooms, three bathrooms, four receptions, and a large, walled garden as well as outbuildings for storage. Importantly for families, there is a huge choice of schools in Winchester, Salisbury, and surrounding area, all of them readily accessible.

Atners Stables at Leckford, near Stockbridge (£3,000 pcm, EPC Band E, station: Winchester or Andover) is a wonderful conversion that has created a unique country house perfect as a fully furnished, relaxing country house, weekend retreat, or for entertaining. Guests will be knocked out by the views across the Test Valley from both the house and the lovely garden, which again includes the services of a gardener!

There are four bedrooms, four bathrooms, three reception rooms, and the possibility to use part of the accommodation as a self-contained annexe.
