The Manor House is situated in the delightfully unspoilt Test Valley hamlet of Up Somborne, an area surrounded by beautiful countryside with an abundance of bridleways and footpaths and close to Farley Mount Country Park.
The property is well located for the amenities in the local Georgian market town of Stockbridge (c.4 miles), with its renowned butcher, several shops, restaurants, convenience store and Post Office.
More extensive facilities can be found in the cathedral cities of Winchester and Salisbury, and in Andover and Romsey. Winchester's mainline railway station (c.7 miles) offers a fast and regular service to London Waterloo (c.60 minutes). There is easy access to the west via the A303, with the M3, M27 and A34 also being within easy reach.
Educational facilities are excellent, being within easy reach of the highly regarded Farleigh School, Prince's Mead, Twyford and Pilgrims' Prep Schools, Winchester College and St Swithun's in Winchester and Godolphin school in Salisbury.
The state schooling in the area is highly regarded both in Winchester and Stockbridge including Peter Symonds Sixth Form College in Winchester.
A charming Grade II listed family house of mid-18th century origin set in approximately 10.89 acres of lovely countryside in the Test Valley, indeed in the 13th century there was a Manor House on the site and remains of the dovecote/pigeon house and coneygarth can still be seen in the grounds. Maintained very well over 30 years by the current owner, the property will work well for a growing family or indeed a buyer looking for a manageable house with land.
Approached from the village by a quiet lane and sweeping driveway this square Georgian, partially stucco house is presented with well-proportioned reception rooms. An elegant porch leads to a generous and light entrance hall which gives access onto all the main rooms, with an attractive drawing room with working fireplace which is complemented by a similarly good sized family room with inglenook style fireplace with wood burning stove and French windows on to the garden. To the rear of the house is a fine dining room and family kitchen.
The principal bedroom suite has a generous bedroom, bathroom and dressing room along with a further guest suite and two more bedrooms and a third bathroom. A large loft could provide further accommodation subject to the necessary consents.
