Grand family residence

Forming part of The Old Rectory at Abbots Worthy on the northern extremity of Winchester, this grand family residence offers opulent accommodation on a grand scale. Abbots Worthy lies within the Itchen Valley and there are local amenities in nearby Kings Worthy with excellent road links to the A33, A34, M3 and M27 and also the mainline station at Winchester, just a couple of miles away.

Driving in off Park Lane, a security gate opens to an enclosed courtyard area, the double garage and a lockable store. There is plenty of parking at the front and at the rear the garden a combination of brick wall and fencing encloses the south facing flagstone terrace which leads onto the lawns. Through the summer months the garden plays an important role and has access from the kitchen, snug and home office.

Upon entering this wonderful home the spacious hall opens to the living space, has storage, a cloakroom and a door to a vast basement level. A staircase rises through the house giving access to a total of six bedrooms and four bathrooms.

The principle sitting room on the ground floor has feature windows overlooking the southerly aspect, an open fire, high ceilings with decorative cornicing and wood flooring.  A cosy snug is perfect for watching television on a winter’s evening and from here ornate double doors open to the garden.

The main hub of the property is the large open plan kitchen with its high beamed ceilings and tiled flooring giving a superb impression of space. There are areas for dining and relaxing as well as the kitchen itself which lies to the rear with glazed doors to the garden. There is also a utility room and a home office with an adjacent second cloakroom.

On each of the two full floors above there are three good bedrooms, most with fitted storage, and two bathrooms with particular attention being paid to the master suite which has grand proportions, built-in wardrobes and a smart shower room.

Although this is a village setting, the house has the advantage of all mains services connected.

A price guide of £1,350,000 is quoted. Appointments to view may be made by calling Charters in Alresford on 01962 734633.
