  • Bedrooms: 6
Overlooking St Mary’s Church in the older part of Kings Worthy, this exceptional Grade II listed, six bedroom house is steeped in history. It is an amazing house, full of traditional features and contemporary finishes.

Reputedly a medieval open hall house, it then became the Manor House, circa 1743 - 1748, and is thought to be the oldest Post Office in the county, from 1845 – 1966. The kitchen was believed to have been used as a bakery until 1929.

This truly wonderful house successfully combines its unique history and charm with a modern and sympathetic style.

A welcoming entrance/dining hall sets the tone for the rest of the house. The large reception room has a log burner and a door, believed to be the original entrance to the shop and post office. Behind this room is an inner hallway which leads to a study and a comfortable family/reception room with an original brick wall and a fabulous fireplace with a log burner. Beyond is a luxurious fitted bathroom with beams and a free standing bath tub. There is a separate shower room and a cloakroom.

The spacious well-equipped fitted Woodstock bespoke kitchen, which has a French limestone floor, features a gas fired Aga, a range of stylish units, an island unit and a breakfast area. Off the kitchen is a larder, utility room and a boot room with a door opening on to the garden.

The first floor is accessed via three separate stairwells. The principal staircase leads to three bedrooms, a bathroom and a dressing room. The secondary staircase, which rises from the kitchen/breakfast room, leads to a master suite which has vaulted ceilings and an en-suite bathroom. The back staircase provides access to the remaining bedrooms.

There is a basement on the lower ground floor and an outbuilding of a carport, office and log store.

The house sits within lovely gardens; a picket fence runs across the front boundary and there is a gated entrance leading to the rear driveway, carport and log store. The pretty gardens are a delight with an abundance of flowering borders, shrubs and fruit trees as well as a beautifully kept lawn.
