An extremely elegant 6 bedroom residence presenting approaching 4,000 sq ft of accommodation with contemporary styling and approximately 1 acre of grounds.
The Towers was 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 nine homes.
This prestigious property was once the main entrance to the house and retains its elegant façade and the original commemorative plaque laid in recognition of its designer the late Colonel Bashford.
It is one of the most privately positioned properties within the development and the only one to benefit from approximately 1 acre of grounds.
The accommodation has been upgraded and styled by the current owner and is arranged over three floors with original features retained to include turrets, high ceilings, sash windows (now double glazed) and fireplaces.
In addition, the top floor has been fully converted and whilst currently forms part of the main accommodation could be ideal as an apartment for guests or teenagers.
On the ground floor of the house is the substantial dual aspect drawing room with contemporary fireplace, log burning stove and full height windows to the front aspect and access outside to a communal courtyard to the rear.
The kitchen/dining room is superb and is fitted with an extensive range of contemporary units, modern work surfaces and a range cooker.
Elegant full height double glazed sash windows to the dining area in this room flood this space with light.
On the first floor is the spacious master bedroom suite with dressing/sitting area and large ensuite bathroom. There is a second bedroom which is of an equivalent size also with a bathroom, both these rooms have magnificent views over the surrounding countryside. In addition, there are two further bedrooms on this floor.
The third floor has two double bedrooms, a shower room and large living room.
The property is situated at the end of a sweeping, tree lined driveway and positioned with views of the surrounding countryside. Being at the end of the drive there is a good degree of privacy. Parking and an enclosed garden with lawn and sun terrace are adjacent to the house. In addition, there is a private lightly wooded copse of approx 1 acre, a double garage, and an additional area for parking.
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 Meon Valley Trail which can be accessed via a private gate from the grounds of the property.
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. Westhill Park, Twyford School, Boundary Oak, Winchester College, St Swithun’s and Bedales are also close by.
