Deep in the Meon valley

This is an exceptional home with its own stable yard and lies deep in the Meon Valley to the south west of the village of Hambledon where the narrow lane leading to Bent Farm creates a very peaceful environment surrounded by glorious countryside. Sitting in its own grounds of six acres, there are mature gardens, large pond, interconnecting paddocks, stable yard with store, tack room and grass practice arena.

The original period barn buildings have been successfully converted into a distinctive home with attractive mellow brick, weather boarded and flint elevations with inset oak windows and doors. Inside the barn has soaring vaulted ceilings with the timber frame fully exposed and carefully incorporated into this skeleton is the latest technology and quality fittings such as French limestone floors, oak joinery, underfloor heating and designer lighting which can create different moods in the living space.

The accommodation is predominantly laid out on the ground floor, radiating from the vaulted entrance hall which has exposed brick and flint work to the walls and French doors into the gardens. Leading off is a corridor to the bedroom wing and there is an opening into the magnificent principal part of the barn which is fully vaulted, open plan and on the western side are glazed bi-fold doors which open out on to the terrace and take advantage of the views across the garden and paddocks.

Part of the timber frame creates a division from the kitchen/breakfast room which is fitted with bespoke hand painted units, granite work surfaces, limestone floor, a central island unit and a four oven Aga. A door leads through into the utility room with a wet room off and staircase rising up to a mezzanine study.

Three main bedrooms lead off a corridor where the master bedroom has French doors…
