A VINEYARD and building plot within the South Downs National Park is now on the market for just shy of £2 million.

Hazeldown, in the village of Chilcomb near Winchester, extends to 33 acres including a building plot, paddocks, pasture wood, downland and an established vineyard of about 2.5 acres.

The vineyard has been planted with Chardonnay and Pinot Noir vines to produce an exclusive English sparkling wine.

There is currently a 1970s built house with consent in place for its demolition and replacement with a substantial, high quality Georgian style country house of over 5,000 sq ft, including a basement.

The existing house has three double bedrooms, sitting room, kitchen, utility room and attached store/ garage. It has a garden of about a quarter of an acre mainly laid to lawn, with well stocked borders and a separate vegetable patch.

There is also a large barn with six boxes and tack room, as well as equestrian facilities including a manège.

Jon Lacey, of Savills Winchester, said: “This is such a wonderful and unique opportunity for those seeking a possible lifestyle change and exciting commercial venture.”

Hazeldown is being marketed by Savills Winchester with a guide price of £1,950,000.
