A RURAL haven inside the boundaries of the South Downs National Park and set within 15 acres of land is up for sale for £1.7 million.

The property, Broadlands Farm House, in Peststead Lane, Soberton, sees the main house in its own oasis of almost an acre of formal gardens set back from the road behind a shingle driveway complete with a central island.

“The house is already perfectly set up for a family wishing to share with an elderly relative as the east wing of the ground floor has been set up to create a self-contained annexe with its own sitting room, kitchenette, shower room, and bedroom,” says Colin Shairp, of Fine and Country Southern Hampshire.

“The house has 3,513 sq ft of living space arranged over two floors with three bedrooms and a large landing on the first floor, two en-suites, and a separate cloakroom. On the ground floor, in addition to the annexe, the west wing has a further bedroom with en-suite bathroom, and there are also drawing and dining rooms, a cloakroom, a kitchen / breakfast room, pantry, utility, and a large conservatory overlooking fields.

“Within the 15.3 acres of grounds is a substantial barn with 4,168 sq ft of stabling and storage incorporating 10 stables. A further stable block provides another six stables fronted by a 70 ft apron and a nine room storage barn.

“The property is perfectly set up for a family with equestrian or outdoor interests. The surrounding National Park is laced with paths and quiet lanes and less than a mile from the property is the Meon Valley route that connects Wickham with Alresford, providing many miles of walking and riding along the old railway line through some of southern England’s most beautiful countryside.

“At the same time, the area has good transport links and is well served by villages and larger conurbations providing all the facilities that busy families need and enjoy, including excellent schooling choices.”

Guide price is £1.7 million (EPC Band D). For more information, contact Fine and Country Southern Hampshire on 023 93 277 277 or email drayton@fineandcountry.com
