Exceptional country home on the edge of the village

Taking all the best elements from the Georgian and Victorian eras, North Court at Bishops Sutton also benefits from a more contemporary extension which has created a fabulous indoor pool, completed to an exceptionally high standard and overseen by leading architects. Refurbished throughout and set in beautifully landscaped gardens by Taylor Tripp, this is an amazing country house set in more than three acres with open fields and the head waters of the River Arle within walking distance.

The principal rooms are beautifully proportioned and they flow exceptionally well, most enjoying views over the lovely gardens with open countryside beyond.

Leading off the spacious reception hall are the drawing room and dining room on one side, and a study and playroom with a store between them on the other. The magnificent kitchen lies to the rear and is open plan with informal dining and relaxing areas and French doors opening to the terrace.

On the far side of the kitchen lies a series of rooms including a utility room through to the pool room with changing facilities and shower room. There is also a wine store, laundry room and cloakroom with access through to a double garage and a lobby with stairs rising to an annexe.

The principal staircase rises from the reception hall to a galleried landing and the master suite which is a grand affair with a large bedroom with a fireplace, dressing room and twin bathrooms, each luxuriously finished with a bath and shower.

There are five further bedrooms and three more bathrooms arranged over this floor and the one above. The annexe has a living room with a kitchen, two bedrooms and a bathroom.

Within the grounds is a brick built Wendy house, a summer house, a detached home office and a further double garage. The delightful gardens are formally arranged close to the house with terracing, a parterre garden and vegetable beds to one side, leading onto lawns, a wild flower meadow and an orchard.

This is a wonderful location just a mile from Alresford and the village has a 12th century parish church, pub and a village hall, with Winchester, Alton, Basingstoke, Farnham and Guildford within easy driving distances.
