INTRODUCTION One of the most prominent houses in the village, this beautiful Grade II listed family home is steeped in history and still retains much of its charm and character.

The property also comes with a completely self-contained spacious two bedroom annex, in addition to having a driveway providing off road parking for smaller vehicles and a beautifully kept, mature good-sized rear garden along with a pretty summerhouse.

Accommodation briefly comprises a drawing room, 17ft dining room that enjoys views over the rear garden, kitchen/breakfast room and utility room. There are then four double bedrooms along with three modern bath/shower rooms.


LOCATION Hamble (Le-Rice) lies along the shores of the River Hamble and is picturesque village that boasts stunning views, period cottages, several great pubs, pretty walks and thriving wildlife.

The village is also a yachting Mecca, drawing in people from around the world for races, events and celebrations. Along with Cowes on the Isle of Wight, the village is seen as one of the most important yachting destinations in the UK. The Royal Victoria Country Park, which is set in 200 acres of park and woodland is also on its doorstep, with both Southampton Airport and all main motorway access routes being within easy reach.

INSIDE Approached via wrought iron gates that then lead onto the shingled driveway, a wooden and glass panelled front door leads through to the entrance porch. An original front door then opens directly into to a lovely bright entrance hall where there is a staircase leading to the first floor, stripped floorboards and an understairs cupboard. A door to one side of the entrance hall leads through to a lovely light and airy drawing room, which again has stripped floorboards, with the main focal point of the room being the original cast iron fireplace with veined marble surround.

The dining room, again a bright room, has two sash windows that enjoy pleasant views over the rear garden with the room also having stripped floorboards and an original open fireplace - a perfect room for entertaining. There is a modern kitchen/breakfast room which is fitted with a matching range of wall and base units, has a ceramic sink unit and a range of appliances including a built-in oven with combination oven above, dishwasher, electric induction hob and further appliance space. The room also has a central island with breakfast bar to one side, a sash window to the front and stylish Travertine tiled flooring.

On the next level of the house and from the landing, a door then leads through to a beautifully appointed modern shower room which has been fitted with a double width shower cubicle, ceramic wash hand basin set on vanity unit with granite worktop and WC to the side. The room also has a heated towel rail, porcelain tiling to both floor and walls along with spotlights.

From the second floor landing, which again has stripped floorboards, there is an airing cupboard. A door leads through to a large master bedroom which has a sash window to one side, stripped floorboards and an original cast iron fireplace, with a door to one side leading through to a 'Jack 'n Jill' bathroom which has been fitted with a modern suite comprising a panel enclosed bath with shower over, matching wash hand basin and WC. The room also benefits from a heated towel rail, spotlights and is fully tiled. Bedroom two, again a large double room, has three windows to the front, replicating the drawing room, stripped floorboards and an original cast iron fireplace. As does bedroom three which is also a double room.

On the third floor there is then a further double bedroom with en-suite, which is currently being used as a sitting room by the vendors which has stripped floorboards, a cast iron fireplace and a window to both the front and side enjoying views over Hamble and towards the water.


TWO BEDROOM ANNEX To the front of the property there are steps leading down to a pretty courtyard with a front door that then leads directly through to a modern well-proportioned kitchen breakfast room. The kitchen has a window to the front, matching wall and base units, a one and a half bowl sink unit, gas cooker, space and plumbing for a dishwasher and further appliance space.

A door to one side of the kitchen then leads through to a good-sized sitting room which has three windows to the front and an impressive, exposed brick fireplace with inset wood burning stove to one side of the room. A door at one end of the room leads through to an inner hallway, with doors that lead on through to a modern bathroom, cloakroom and master bedroom.

The master has fitted mirrored wardrobes along one wall, with a window and door that lead through to an external staircase providing access into the garden. There is then a second bedroom which also has a window to the rear.

The beautiful rear garden itself has been landscaped to provide a lawned area, both paved and decked patio areas, a summerhouse and shed and is well-stocked with a variety of flowers, trees and shrubs.
