The Property:

An exceptional individual house with an array of space for family living, entertaining and working from home. Having been remodelled by the current owners, an extended 'wing' incorporating oak and glass takes advantage of the views to the rear over the garden and adjoining paddocks and fields. An oak framed reception porch opens into a beautifully light and airy reception hall which in turn opens into a stunning garden room with expansive glazing and French doors that open into the garden. Above is a large double aspect bedroom which could be a fantastic space for teenagers or a games room, this is served by a separate shower room. The remaining ground floor accommodation is neatly linked by a part glazed atrium into accommodation comprising; a double aspect drawing room with an open fire and direct access into the garden, a formal dining room, refitted kitchen/breakfast room with contemporary units and granite worktops, a separate utility room, study and cloakroom. The first floor works for families with younger children as there are four bedrooms, one being a principle en-suite and a family bathroom. Externally the gardens have been professionally landscaped and are a delight; the front of the property is screened by a mature hedgerow and a gate leads onto the pathway to the front door. The gardens to the rear are a real feature of the property and are largely laid to lawn with deep shaped flower beds and large terraces, providing entertainment space immediately to the rear of the house. There is a separate well-stocked fruit and vegetable garden and a brick built external garden store.

The Location:

Ovington is a quiet village situated on the banks of the River Itchen, within the South Downs National Park. Surrounded by magnificent open countryside and famed for its chalk stream trout fishing the village also offers excellent walking and riding. The Pilgrims' Way provides riverside walks through picturesque countryside with the village benefitting from an excellent public house The Bush Inn, and St. Peter's Church. Neighbouring villages of Easton and Itchen Abbas offer a wider range of amenities including a primary school and a choice of pubs.
