For sale Soberton Hampshire
April 11, 2022 Kate Porter

Positioned at the westerly end of The Towers, this elegant home offers a wealth of stylish accommodation totalling approximately 4,000 sq. ft and includes a substantial loft space that could be converted to provide additional accommodation (stpp).
The Towers is believed to have been constructed in the late 19th century and was previously a private residence, a prep school and a home for Wrens serving HMS Mercury in the war. In the late 1970s, it was sympathetically converted into several homes.
On the ground floor is a substantial sitting/dining room with stunning ornate fireplace and full height bay windows which provide views over the patio and gardens beyond.
Open to the dining area is the impressive bespoke kitchen, with cream units and granite work surfaces and a full range of integrated appliances including a fridge/freezer, dishwasher, range cooker and microwave.
On the upper ground floor level is a large under stair storage cupboard, cloakroom and family room. This room also gives access to a boiler/utility room which in turn leads to the communal courtyard which was upgraded in 2009.
On the first floor, accessed from the landing, are four large double bedrooms. The master bedroom extends to 16’9 and boasts a walk-in closet, stripped floorboards and a bay window providing elevated views over the gardens. Its en suite bathroom is equipped with a marble washstand with his and hers basins.
Three further bedrooms, two which benefit from en suite facilities and a family bathroom complete the accommodation on the first floor. Set behind a door in bedroom two is a staircase to the huge loft room. This immense area is considered to offer further scope for extending subject to the relevant consents.
The property is situated at the end of a sweeping, tree lined driveway and positioned within picturesque mature gardens that have been beautifully landscaped and maintained. Being at the end of the drive the property offers a good degree of privacy and the south facing lawn area and paved terrace provide a perfect environment for outdoor entertaining. In addition, there is an area of light woodland, a flourishing vegetable plot, private driveway, and a double garage.
Soberton lies to the west of the River Meon in the heart of The Meon valley and South Downs National Park. There are local footpaths and bridleways in abundance including the disused railway line itself nearby. Within an easy stroll is The White Lion public house with further amenities at Droxford. Local schools are at Soberton & Newtown Infants and Droxford Junior both marked outstanding by Ofsted. Winchester College, St Swithun’s School and Bedales School are also close by.
There is excellent access to the A32/A272 to Winchester and Petersfield where there are extensive amenities and rail services to London.
