Owners Comments

“We have personally appreciated the privacy and seclusion our home has afforded us. Tucked away from the thoroughfare amidst open countryside gives you the feeling of rurality yet we are able to walk to many traditional village amenities. My regular commute to London is also made very easy.”

“The venue has been idyllic for hospitality and entertaining. The house is so light and bright with large open spaces which have made dinner parties so enjoyable whilst outside the gardens enjoy all day sunshine, ideal for barbecues and relaxation.”


The Paddocks is wholly impressive, elegantly styled with a wonderful social flow via open plan living areas and well proportioned rooms. Occupying a pretty position within its well maintained gardens of 0.6 acres, there is also the option to rent a further paddock of 0.6 acre if required.

In addition to its vast living accommodation, the property also features a large detached garage with a room above extending to a total of 1200sqft which would easily lend itself to conversion into an excellent self contained annex or office space, subject to planning permission.

Within the gardens there are two further substantial outbuildings, versatile in their usage including a triple stable block with tack room and hay store, along with a useful detached car barn. Although delightfully private the property is perfectly positioned for ideal commuting and is still within walking distance of a wealth of amenities including a supermarket and Italian restaurant.


Double oak doors open into the stunning open plan living area which is afforded much natural light via skylights and large panel glazed windows with feature stone edging and courtesy uplighting. The kitchen living room is exceptionally spacious with a large central island offering storage and an ideal breakfast bar. There is also a fitted breakfast bench and table for informal dining. The kitchen is dual in aspect with an extensive range of wall and base units, oak worktops, an inset induction hob with extractor canopy, built in combi oven, dishwasher and under counter fridge and freezer. The kitchen is supplemented by a substantial and impressive built in floor to ceiling cool store, a large cloaks cupboard and spacious utility with further storage and a door to the garden. The dining room is delightful, featuring recessed shelving and lighting with built in speakers and downlighting. The sitting room is vast, triple in aspect with large glazed panels overlooking the garden and twin sets of doors opening onto the terrace. The room is centred upon a contemporary flame effect electric fire and an adjoining study is fitted with quality furniture comprising built in desk and storage with a vaulted ceiling. The ground floor accommodation is completed by a family room and contemporary WC with double wash hand basin and concealed cistern.

A feature oak staircase ascends to a large landing with an attractive gable end window offering views across the open paddocks. The master bedroom is substantial, triple in aspect with a Juliet balcony and an impressive walk in dressing room hosting extensive sliding wardrobes and cupboard space. The ensuite is exquisite, centred around a family bath and glass block wall which screens the ‘his and hers' wet room with twin wall and rainfall shower heads. There are also twin wash hand basins with matching cabinets and towel storage as well as a low level WC. Bedroom two is served by fitted wardrobes and another spacious ensuite bathroom with Jacuzzi bath, double shower cubicle, vanity unit, bidet and low level WC. This bathroom also acts as a Jack and Jill arrangement with an adjoining bedroom whilst the two remaining bedrooms are served by the family bathroom which also features a shower cubicle.


The property is approached via a private lane with double hardwood gates accessing a gravel driveway with ample parking leading to the exceptional double garage. There is a staircase ascending to a large first floor which could easily be utilised as a gym, office or games room. The garage and first floor are 1200 sqft and could easily be adapted to provide a separate annex facility, subject to planning permission.

The gardens extend to 0.6 acres and are beautifully private overlooking private paddocks and farmland beyond. A paddock of 0.6 acres can continue to be rented at a figure of £500 per annum if required. The gardens are predominantly lawned and studded with attractive trees and shrubs featuring two large patio areas, allowing the capture of sunlight all day. There is a children's play area and to the rear, a triple stable block with feed store and tack room. There is a further large secluded car barn and a five bar gate to the rented paddock.


The Paddocks is situated on the borders of both North Baddesley and Ampfield, close to local amenities and ideal for commuter links via the M3, M27, Parkway station with London Waterloo direct lines and Southampton airport. Neatly tucked away and positioned to take advantage of countryside views, this property offers convenience within its position and internal layout.
