Converted coach house with fishing rights

Forming a large part of the original coach house to Shawford Park, this property dates back to the late 19th and was converted a hundred years later to provide spacious and interesting accommodation with a flexible layout and lovely features. With two areas of garden, each with its own distinctive character, and fishing rights on the River Itchen which flows at the bottom of the principal area, Tom’s Coach House has much to appeal to purchasers.

The split level entrance hall has doors off to a lovely sitting room at the front with twin sash windows overlooking the courtyard and an open fire as the focal point; the dining room; and a third reception room ideal as a study or fourth bedroom. The smart kitchen lies to the rear and has plenty of space for informal dining and a door to the rear garden. There is also a guest cloakroom and stairs from the hall rise to the first floor landing.

The landing branches off to three good size bedrooms, all with space for a double bed and fabulous vaulted ceilings with exposed beams. The master bedroom at the front is particularly spacious, whilst the second bedroom at the rear, has wonderful elevated views over the garden and river beyond.

To the front of the property there is a driveway providing off road parking in addition to a garage.

The gardens are delightful and the main, lawned area, with mature trees and hedges to the boundaries, stretches some 170 feet down to the river where fishing rights can be exercised. The south facing courtyard to the side may be accessed from the dining room and is a superb space for entertaining with clipped low level hedging softening the paving and the whole area is enclosed by old brick walls. There is a further area with raised vegetable beds for those who relish the idea of cultivating their own produce.

Shawford is a lovely village just a short distance to the south of Winchester yet has its own train station, village hall and public house which all add to the character of the community. Tom’s Coach House enjoys an idyllic setting with privacy and seclusion yet is easily accessible from Winchester and beyond.
