River Barn is a five bedroom home at the heart of Old Bursledon with views towards the River Hamble and is being offered for sale for £1,925,000.

The property, which is set in about two acres, was designed by architect Oliver Hill, who was a student of the renowned Edward Lutyens.

Built in 1935 in a Dutch colonial style, River Barn offers generous accommodation and superb gardens. It also benefits from planning permission to extend and remodel.

At ground floor level there are three main reception areas including a sitting room with fireplace and stunning views out over the gardens, and a dining room. The open plan kitchen/breakfast/family room makes an ideal everyday living space.

There are six bedrooms on the first floor, four of which have en suite facilities, and there is a separate shower room. The largest bedroom could be used as a games room/annexe, as it has a kitchenette in one corner with en suite facilities. On the second floor there is a studio room which would make an ideal guest/ master suite, as well as an office.

The gardens provide an attractive backdrop, with lawns and a large terrace accessed off the breakfast room and family room. The terrace offers beautiful views across the gardens and paddock beyond, and in the distance the River Hamble meanders out to Southampton Water.

There are garages next to the house as well as towards the top of the drive, providing ample parking space and storage areas.

River Barn benefits from planning permission to remodel and extend the current accommodation to create a statement kitchen/dining/living area. Planning also exists for a detached games room and entertainment area.

The property is being marketed by Savills Winchester.
