DESCRIPTION:

Discreetly positioned on one of Romsey's most exclusive roads, this impressive and spacious family home offers an interior of the highest quality in a wonderful sylvan setting. The internal layout provides a degree of flexibility and versatility, with the emphasis on comfortable day-to-day living for the modern family beautifully combined with features that will appeal to those who enjoy entertaining along with facilities for an active, healthy lifestyle.

The rooms are of generous and sensible proportions and provide the perfect arrangement for both formal and informal living, the ground floor offering particularly spacious accommodation especially when compared with the typical newer homes on offer. In addition, the gardens enjoy a pleasant aspect facing approximately south and a high degree of privacy and seclusion creating an ideal environment for socialising with family and friends.

ACCOMMODATION:

The main entrance is through double doors from a covered porch opening into a welcoming reception hall featuring a travertine tiled floor, cloaks cupboard, separate cupboard containing the hot water cylinder and water softener, and adjoining cloakroom with WC. The principal ground floor rooms all adjoin the entrance hall and these include a large triple aspect drawing room with feature fireplace and double doors opening onto the rear garden. A small lobby connects the drawing room to the gym which, with its modern en-suite shower room, could also be used as a fifth bedroom if needed or occasional guest room; the double doors provide ready access to the swimming pool and garden.

Also adjoining the reception hall are a good sized study that could be used as a dining room if preferred and a double aspect sitting room. The kitchen/family room is a particular feature of the property and fitted to the highest standard with granite worktops, a range of built-in appliances to include induction hob, steam and conventional ovens, dishwasher and coffee machine, inset remote controlled gas fire, tiled floor with underfloor heating, and double doors opening onto the decking area and garden. Adjoining the kitchen is a useful utility room with ample appliance space, sink and storage, and the ground floor is completed by a boot room which contains the central heating boiler and additional access to the garden.

On the first floor are the four double bedrooms and family bathroom. The master bedroom enjoys a double aspect with dormer windows to the front and rear, full height vaulted ceilings, and generous wardrobe space. The luxurious en-suite includes a walk-in tiled shower, integrated wash basin and WC, and separate built-in cupboard. The three remaining bedrooms are all doubles, the largest two having built-in wardrobes, and all three share a beautifully appointed modern bathroom that includes both a bath and shower.

OUTSIDE:

The property is approached through a remote-controlled five-bar gate which opens onto an expansive driveway providing parking for numerous vehicles, leading to a large detached double garage which offers the potential for conversion into ancillary accommodation or the provision for a home office or similar in the vast loft space subject, of course, to the usual consent. The gardens enjoy an approximate south facing aspect extending to around two-thirds of an acre, having been beautifully landscaped and principally laid to lawn with mature borders providing almost complete privacy and seclusion. The refurbished swimming pool has a maximum depth of about 3 metres, is heated by an air source heat pump, and has an easily movable sliding glass cover ensuring year round use.
