Who could ask for more?

Approached over a private country lane and occupying an enviable setting, this superbly renovated and extended detached home sits in a quiet and rural location. Surrounded by fields on all sides Farfields sits within attractive lawned gardens which lead onto two acres of paddock.

Spacious and comfortable accommodation has been created with the addition of two contemporary extensions which balance this home and enhance the original features. A detached annexe is currently successfully used as a bed & breakfast facility but could have any number of uses including a home office or teenage den. The paddock has separate access from the lane, water supply and a mobile double stable. There is also plenty of parking, additional outbuildings and a large workshop with insulated flooring and double glazing.

Three large reception rooms radiate from the superb kitchen/breakfast room which is largely open plan to the dining and family room. The kitchen is beautifully fitted and has a full range of appliances including a steam oven, warming drawer and coffee machine. All receptions have French doors to the gardens which allow natural light in and a pleasant easy extension to the garden in the summer months. Leading off the entrance hall is a range of cupboards, utility room and cloakroom.

An automatic lighting system illuminates the landing at skirting level and branching off from here are four excellent double bedrooms and the family bathroom complete with bath, separate shower and underfloor heating. The master bedroom benefits from floor to ceiling glazed doors to a Juliette balcony enjoying extensive rural views, a walk in wardrobe and its own smart shower room.

Beech hedging and shrub borders flank the extensive driveway and enclose the gardens of about a third of an acre which are laid to lawn and with a Yorkstone paved terrace.

Situated on the outskirts of Wickham village, this is a rural but accessible location. Wickham is a popular heritage village at the southern end of the Meon Valley with a good range of local amenities and easy access to the M27 motorway network.

Ben Runciman of selling agent Byrne Runciman in Wickham recommends this lovely house, saying: “Farfields is a fabulous family home which ‘ticks all the boxes’; wonderful location, beautiful kitchen, paddock for the children’s ponies, lots of space to park cars and a particularly smart ‘man cave’.”
