Home, Income, Lifestyle – Explore your options

If you are looking for a change of lifestyle, an exciting opportunity to explore different income potential or a combination of both then we have two properties new to the market in the South Downs National Park which could be ideal!

West Meon is a sought after village situated on the South Down Way making it incredibly popular for ramblers, cyclists and riders creating a high demand for stop over accommodation for paying guests.

Shafts Farm is family home and an established B&B with DIY livery.  Given the enviable location, stables and paddock (approx 8 acres overall) this unique property already offers the opportunity for a lifestyle/income purchase.  The accommodation is very well presented and arranged over two floors.  On the ground floor is an extensively fitted kitchen/breakfast room with utility, a sitting room with fireplace, a conservatory and a formal dining room which could be opened into the double garage which it adjoins to create further living space.

The first floor has an open plan landing which is an ideal study/library space and there are three double bedrooms each with their own en suite facilities.  In addition, there are two further good-sized bedrooms and a large family bathroom.

The grounds are a particular feature of the property; approached via a private driveway which leads to the house and then continues onto the yard and stable block, which has power and water, and to the paddock land beyond.

There is an area where chickens are housed and a further area with attractive planting enclosed by formal hedging.  The paddocks benefit from being slightly elevated and there is no additional access to the land so there is a very good degree of privacy and security overall.

Hartsmeon is nestled within superb landscaped grounds and whilst not an established business its layout could easily accommodate this facility with 3 ideal guest suites and the perfect area for guests’ breakfast and leisure, away from the family living space.    The property has been thoughtfully designed and finished to a high specification throughout. Arranged over two floors, the principle rooms are on the first floor to maximise the views over the village and south Downs countryside. The accommodation includes a wonderful spacious study/office with fitted shelving plus there is a separate cedar summer house, peacefully set beside the pond at the end of the garden with electricity and therefore offering a perfect private place to work.

The gardens are a particular feature and are fully enclosed and beautifully landscaped to include tranquil areas for dining, entertaining or relaxation.  There is extensive outside lighting and attractive water features, architectural structures, mature planting and a pretty pond well stocked with waterlilies and bordered by decked area, lawn and summer house. A garden gate opens to a footpath which leads to Church and village.

The Country House Company worked incredibly hard to secure us our dream house in Hambledon and we could not be more grateful. Kate was incredibly knowledgeable and open about the house and its history, the local area and the market. We were kept in the loop on communications with the vendor, we never needed to chase and felt that whilst the vendors wishes were communicated and respected our cause was similarly championed which ultimately resulted the best outcome for all. If and when we choose to sell our home, we won’t be going anywhere else. Our experience demonstrates that getting the right team on the case makes all the difference. Thank you Kate and the team at The Country House Company!
