Owners Comments

“We love the location, tucked away in a small hamlet overlooking countryside and woodland but only 10 minutes from the centre of Southampton.”

“The children love running in and out to the garden through the large doors whilst we can sit, enjoy the views in the sunshine and the spectacular sunsets across the fields.”

Introduction

Occupying an attractive elevated position in grounds of 1/2 acre and tucked away in this pretty conservation area at the head of a private lane, High View is a landmark home and the embodiment of modern living with elegant and stylish design combining with energy efficient features. The views are wholly impressive, afforded via full width and height windows and doors. The interior décor and layout has been cleverly designed to incorporate much natural light to the five bedrooms, delightful kitchen living room, sitting room, study, family room/office and excellent cinema room with associated kitchen and bar. The front and rear gardens both offer a high degree of privacy and seclusion with the principal patio terrace and lawns enjoying a south westerly aspect. To the fore is generous vehicular parking with planning consent for the erection of a double garage and carport.

On the same level, enjoying a host of fitted wardrobe space, sliding patio doors to a private terrace and a large ensuite bath and shower room, is the sizeable guest bedroom. Solid oak steps ascend to the first floor and flow to the principal rooms. The interior is stylish with angled vaulted ceilings, oak doors and finishes, all beautifully bright and afforded much natural light and attractive views via large picture windows and bifold doors. Floor to ceiling display shelving leads to the impressive kitchen breakfast room which features a dual aspect and oversized full width bifold doors opening onto the sun terrace. The kitchen is fitted with a host of white gloss, eye and base level units with light oak surrounds and worktops. A central island hosts a De Dietrich induction hob and side plates with further storage below, whilst other integrated appliances include Neff double ovens and twin fridge and freezers. The room is particularly sociable with space for both dining and lounge furniture. The separate utility room hosts further storage and plumbing for appliances with a plumbed water softener and is adjacent to the useful study.

Steps ascend to the wonderful sitting room which hosts sliding doors to the sundeck and full width picture windows overlooking the adjoining paddocks and far beyond. The cinema room is wholly impressive, perfectly designed for purpose incorporating a kitchen area, with breakfast bar, wine cooler, dishwasher and storage. Naturally the room offers integrated audio and there is a large picture window overlooking the rear.

An inner hallway offers extensive wardrobe and storage space and is from where the sleeping accommodation radiates. The master suite, typical of the rest of the house, is beautifully designed in a contemporary open plan format to include a bedroom with patio doors to the rear garden, a walk in wardrobe with a host of storage and a dressing room with a luxurious elipse bath and stylish oak backdrop. There is additionally an ensuite shower room with double shower, twin wash hand basin and low level WC.

Outside

The property is approached via a gravel driveway culminating in a large turning and parking area fronting the property. Here there is parking for several cars and consent for the erection of a double garage and adjoining car port. The garden is south facing and particularly enjoyable as it is elevated to enjoy stunning views for many miles. Principally lawned, it is wonderfully bordered by stainless steel and wood balustrading and to the side by feature banking giving a woodland feel to the setting. The terrace is a stylish mix of grey decking and slate extending to the side and rear of the house which enables enjoyment of all day sunshine.

Steps ascend into the banking to a hammock and relaxation area where the views are most prolific. Designed in keeping with the house is the games room/studio and a long storage shed.
