Inspiring waterside location

Mallards is a fascinating highly individual property in a stunning waterside location. Inspired by cutting edge architecture of the 1960s, the creator, Michael Brawne maximised the impact of the setting overlooking the grounds and Fishers Pond, with much of the south and east elevations featuring banks of glass. Having been in the same ownership for 38 years the property is now ready for a new owner to make it a stunning contemporary home.

On the ground floor there is an open plan, wonderfully light atmosphere with a large entrance hall and open staircase, a spacious sitting and dining room with scope to open up further into the adjoining kitchen/dining room. There is also a large store room on the opposite flank which offers further scope for conversion into living accommodation.

Multiple glazed doors open out to terracing from the reception areas, creating an easy flow from inside to the garden on warm summer days.

A centrally positioned staircase rises through the house to the first floor landing which branches off to five bedrooms including the master suite with dressing room and large bathroom. There are also three separate roof terraces from which to take in the lovely surroundings.

The property is set well back off the road at the end of a long driveway. In total the plot extends to approximately 1.4 acres and comprises large expanses of lawn, a moat style water feature running around the front of the house and a large terrace with a swimming pool to the south easterly side and overlooking the lovely natural setting of Fishers Pond.

This is a popular location about seven miles south of Winchester. Good local amenities are in nearby Twyford and in addition to being surrounded by some of Hampshire’s beautiful countryside there are also good communication links by road and rail to a wider area and to London.

A guide price of £1,250,000 is quoted and the agent will be happy to provide further information. Hamptons International can be contacted on 01962 842030.
