Danes Court is an imposing property offering nearly 5,000 sqft of light-filled flexible accommodation arranged in an L-shaped configuration over three floors. Designed and built by the current owner with a French chateau influence, this is a truly unique home.

The ground floor accommodation flows from a spacious yet welcoming reception hall with a feature curved wall and includes a large drawing room with feature open fireplace and French doors to the rear garden and a generous rear aspect study/sitting room with wall panelling, a feature arched wall and wood burning stove. There is also an extensive L-shaped triple aspect kitchen/ breakfast room which really is the heart of the home. Finished to an exacting standard with an incredibly high level of detail on all the woodwork, this room offers the perfect space for entertaining or everyday living. The kitchen provides a range of wall and floor units with a large central island, quartz worktops, a double Belfast sink and modern integrated appliances including a wine chiller while the breakfast area has a vaulted exposed A frame ceiling, space for a sizeable table and a feature bay window with full-height glazing incorporating French doors to the rear garden.

There is a neighbouring inner hallway with garden access, stairs to a first-floor mezzanine and access to the neighbouring fitted utility room with a door to the integral garage.

The vaulted mezzanine level overlooking the kitchen extends over the garage and comprises a wooden-floored sitting/family room with double Gothic-arched doors to a large games/music room. The area has potential for a variety of uses or as a self-contained annexe if required.

Stairs from the reception hall lead to the first floor which provides a large principal bedroom with built-in storage, a dressing area and an en-suite bathroom with twin sinks, jacuzzi bath and double rain shower and two further well-proportioned bedrooms, both with fitted wardrobes and modern en-suite bathrooms. Two remaining bedrooms and a family bathroom can be found on the second floor.

Planning permission has been granted for a four bay car barn with the potential to create ancillary accommodation or a home working office with additional storage.

Awbridge is a desirable rural village with a good range of day-to-day amenities including a village hall, farm shops and popular primary school. The nearby market town of Romsey offers a Waitrose supermarket, an independent department store and other retail outlets including High Street chains and independent shops, while more extensive retail and sporting facilities can be found in Southampton and the cathedral cities of Salisbury and Winchester.

Transportation links are excellent, with Mottisfont & Dunbridge station providing local services to Salisbury, Southampton, Eastleigh and Portsmouth and into central London in less than 2 hours. The nearby M27 running between Cadnam and Portsmouth and the M3 gives easy access to Southampton in the south and provides the main artery into South West London, as well as giving access to major towns and cities along its route.

The immediate area in the Test Valley boasts many beautiful countryside walks as well as excellent fishing in Holbury Lakes and the River Test and its tributaries.

The area has a wide range of state schools including Awbridge Primary School in the village and The Romsey School as well as a good selection of noted independent schools including Embley, Stroud, Sherborne House, King Edward VI, The Gregg and Twyford.

Danes Court is approached through double electric gates over a gravelled driveway offering extensive private parking and giving access to the integral triple garage. The well-maintained formal garden is laid mainly to level lawn and features a large paved rear terrace and a separate decked and paved seating area with a brick-built open fire, both ideal for entertaining and al fresco dining, the whole screened by mature shrubs and trees and specialist lighting for evening entertaining. The formal garden is bordered by a mature wooded area with numerous private walks.
