On the first floor there are four good size double bedrooms, with a large 'Jack and Jill' en-suite to the master, and two further en-suites.

LOCATION The property is situated in a desirable location in Soberton, which is a pretty village in the heart of the Meon Valley, that forms part of the South Downs National Park and offers many lovely walks and bridleways. The property benefits from being within walking distance of the popular local pub, The White Lion, as well as a short drive from the market towns of Bishops Waltham and Wickham, which offer a broad range of shops and amenities. The Cathedral City of Winchester, market town of Petersfield (both of which have mainline railway stations) and Southampton Airport are just under half an hour away.
