AN EXQUISITE £2.5 million sanctuary originally built for the man who was the solicitor for the White Star Line during the Titanic enquiry, this 6,000 sq ft property is the only Test Valley home designed by the revered Arts and Crafts architect MH Baillie Scott.

Grade II listed Green Place has been beautifully renovated, retaining much of its period splendour, typified by the exquisite oak panelled and vaulted entrance hall and the magnificent great hall with its impressive exposed timbers and elegant fireplace.

It occupies a rare setting, extending to 3.41 acres with stunning far reaching views which are alluded to in its associated Celtic Fairy Tale Motto 'they could see everyone and no one could see them'.

The meticulous restoration conducted by the current owners has made it a place for “peace and parties all in one”. The flexible ground floor living space and ideal social flow lends itself to entertaining.Yet there are also many secret spots for seclusion.

Constructed in 1906 for Ellen Mary Stratford Hill, wife of White Star Line solicitor Sir Norman Hill, the five bedroom home enjoys a suite of ground floor rooms. The ‘sunset’ room is particularly delightful, with the cosiness of the open fireplace and views of the most spectacular summer sunsets.

There is an impressive Pool Cottage with a large games room (including pool table, table tennis and foosball table), adjoining shower room/changing room and kitchen area with underfloor heating which could easily be utilised as a self contained annex. This overlooks the swimming pool and hot tub area with a west facing slope providing a perfect sun trap.

The elegant country gardens extend to 3.41 acres of landscaped grounds inspired by the prominent Arts and Crafts garden designer Gertrude Jekyll.

Green Place is set in an elevated and private position in the heart of the Hampshire countryside, with stunning 180-degree views over the desirable Test Valley. On a clear day the view extends towards the south coast as well as Salisbury.

Immediately opposite are 300 acres of common land to hike or ride without roads whilst the pretty market town of Stockbridge is only half a mile from the property, providing world class trout fishing and an abundance of independent specialist shops.

Green Place is being marketed by Charles Powell at a guide price of £2,500,000.
