Main House

A historic residence with links to Winston Churchill and the preparations for the Normandy landings, which was constructed in the early 1900s as part of The Meon Valley Railway and has since undergone extensive, yet sympathetic, extension and refurbishment.

This stylish private residence offers comfortable, beautifully presented accommodation with many original features retained.

On the ground floor is the drawing room, formerly the main station waiting room, with magnificent oak panelled vaulted ceiling, dual aspect and fireplace with log burning stove.

The family room (ladies waiting room) also has a fireplace with stove and the study, originally the ticket office, retains the booth and cabinets from its operating days.

There is an elegant formal dining room, a superb extensively fitted kitchen/dining room with range cooker and large utility/boot room with cloakroom and access outside. In addition, on the ground floor is a rear lobby, additional cloakroom and second staircase to the guest suite with bathroom.

Accessed via the main staircase is the master bedroom with end suite bathroom, two further double bedrooms and large family bathroom.

Annexe

Outside in the grounds is the signal box which was rebuilt by the current owners as an elegant one bedroom annexe and benefits from open plan living space with kitchenette and fireplace, a double bedroom and private bathroom.

Outside

The gardens are a superb feature of the house and have been attractively landscaped to include large areas of lawn with

perennial borders, orchard, raised vegetable beds with Victorian style Hartley Botanic greenhouse and two paddocks. The garage/workshop/office is substantial and benefits from planning permission for use of the first floor as an office.

Situation

Soberton lies on the west of the River Meon in the heart of The Meon valley and South Downs National Park.

There are local footpaths and bridleways in abundance including the disused line itself which can be accessed directly from the garden.

Amenities include groceries from nearby Merringtons garage, local schools are Soberton & Newtown Infants and Droxford Junior both marked outstanding by Ofsted, with Winchester College, St Swithins and Bedales also close by.
