AN eight bedroom landmark Grade II listed Hampshire home is being sold for just under £2 million. 

Carbery House is set in three quarters of an acre in a prime location in the heart of the Test Valley town of Stockbridge. 

The property, which has Georgian origins, was formerly a guest house and a welcome retreat to those visiting the local area. 

It was purchased in 2008 by the current owners, became a private residence and went through a complete refurbishment programme including additional extensions and significant modernisation which has resulted in a quite fabulous living environment, while still retaining many of its period features.

At ground floor level there is an impressive kitchen/breakfast room with high ceilings, a fireplace and log burner,  the sitting room, a formal dining room and an orangery to the rear. 

There are eight bedrooms on the first floor, including three with en suites, and a family bathroom.

Three bedrooms are located in the wing over the sitting room, studio and garage which has great potential as an integral annexe.

The property is approached via gates which open out onto the gravel drive which provides parking for several vehicles.

Accessed off the sitting room is an attractive terraced area for outdoor entertaining. A path leads up to the main area of gardens which have been landscaped with some attractive planting and a well-stocked border.
