A handsome Grade II listed former farm house set on a lovely, secluded plot, on the edge of the popular village of Ropley. Originally dating from 1730, the house was re-built in 1925, following a fire. More recently, the property has been refurbished and extended, yet retains its charming character features and elegant proportions. The individual rooms have been tastefully decorated in a stylish modern/classic style with considerable attention to detail. There is considerable opportunity to utilise the extensive outbuildings, one of which has planning permission and listed buildings consent to be joined to the main house. Beautiful gardens surround the house on three sides, giving a good amount of privacy and seclusion.

The house is entered via an entrance lobby, which has a deep cloaks cupboard, and then into the large dining hall, with its stunning oak floor, oak beams and fireplace. A door opens to the kitchen/breakfast room, which has terracotta flooring, a wood burning stove, a larder, a range of hand painted wooden units and solid wood worktops, an island unit with granite worktop/breakfast bar, built-in oven, 5 ring induction hob and extractor. There is a dining area, which is open-plan to the light and airy family room, with its wooden flooring and French doors, which open to the garden. A door leads to the utility room and cloakroom. At the other end of the house, off the dining hall, is the large sitting room, with its exposed brick fireplace and wood burning stove. Double doors open to the recently-built study.

Upstairs, on the first floor, is a long landing with further stairs to the second floor. The principle bedroom has a wonderful view over the garden and has its own walk-through dressing room with a beautiful range of bespoke wardrobes and drawers. Beyond is the most stunning en-suite bathroom, featuring a stand alone bath, separate shower, twin wash hand basins and wc. There are two further double bedrooms, one of which has an ensuite shower room. In addition, there is a family bathroom. The second floor is ideal for a child's accommodation, offering a large bedroom with play area, and a separate play room, which could double as a study.

Outside, the property is approached via a five-bar gate into the driveway, offering a huge amount of parking and which goes ahead into a double car barn, which forms part of an outbuilding which has an overall length of 68 feet. The remaining space is used for storage. The beautiful garden sweeps around the house on three sides and has been designed to offer privacy and seclusion. There is a delightful dining area, surrounded by brick and flint walling, with an arch leading into the main garden, which is laid to lawn with a selection of fruit trees. A second brick-built outbuilding is currently used for storage, but has planning permission in place for it to be upgraded and linked to the main house, with possibilities to create an annexe or garden studio, as well as a boot room, which would adjoin the utility room.

Ropley is a sought after village where newcomers will be readily welcomed by the community and there is plenty of opportunity to join in with the multitude of local clubs and events should you wish to. There is easy access to the A31 and A32 which allow access to London, Winchester and the Midlands. Mainline rail access to London is from Petersfield, Alton and Winchester. There is a good primary school in the village with a secondary school in nearby Alresford and sixth form education available in both Winchester and Alton.
