BOASTING a floodlit tennis court and wine store and set in 3.6 acres, this beautiful country house in the South Downs National Park could be yours for £1.5 million.

Approached via a long drive, seven bedroom Harwood House is built in the Arts and Crafts style and is set in a secluded location.

It has a wonderful variety of period features and modern conveniences. The majority of the ground floor accommodation is south facing with views over the impressive garden.

The substantial kitchen is designed by John Lewis of Hungerford and there is a four oven Aga.

Upstairs the principal bedroom has a dressing room and en suite bathroom. There are six further bedrooms and two bathrooms.

The layout of the house has been designed with the flexibility to create an annexe with its own entrance and staircase combining the family room, conservatory, utility and cloakroom on the ground floor and principal bedroom suite upstairs.

Set in over 3.6 acres, the stunning gardens are mainly laid to lawn with mature shrubs and trees. A large terrace extends along the width of the house and there is a floodlit tennis court, stabling, covered wood store, external wine store and double garage.

Planning permission has been granted for a new three bay oak framed garage block as well as replacing the conservatory with an orangery.

Hambledon is a beautiful village, nine miles from Petersfield and 16 miles from Winchester. It has a collection of attractive period cottages and houses that run along a central high street as well as a variety of amenities including The Old Forge Tea Room, the Peoples Market and two pubs.
