Agents Comments

“A stunning characterful home with a contemporary feel. The open plan kitchen breakfast room is wonderfully bright and a super venue for entertaining. The garden is a great place to relax and enjoy the views beyond.”


Original exposed timbers, inglenook fireplaces and authentic latch doors are reminders of this homes heritage fusing seamlessly with the impressive recent additions of the substantial open plan kitchen/dining room extension and versatile room arrangement. There are some delightful individual features in Dingley Dell, including the glass atrium in the kitchen affording much natural light and the pretty mature gardens. Wellow Wood is a picturesque rural hamlet with wonderful scenic walks and countryside offering a peaceful haven yet enjoying walking access to the local amenities of Sherfield English and Wellow and a short drive to the more comprehensive facilities of the market town of Romsey.


Upon entering via the sympathetically constructed oak porch and front door you are immediately immersed in the past with beautifully preserved exposed beams, a stunning fireplace and attractive flagstone flooring in the reception hall/ snug. Refurbished windows showcase the dual aspect and the original period internal door opens into the sitting room, which is also dual aspect, enhanced by the oak flooring and glazed French doors to the gardens. An oak latch door leads to the impressive open plan, country kitchen completed in a ‘shaker style', and is the central hub of the home, afforded much light from the attractive roof lantern. The kitchen is well equipped with an extensive range of white, eye and base level units with complementary wooden work tops and a pantry cupboard. Space is available for a Range Style oven set within a brick recess providing a focal point with integrated appliances including a dishwasher, washing machine, fridge and freezer. There is access to an inner hallway which leads to two bedrooms, a study and a four piece bathroom with separate double shower cubicle.

The staircase to the first floor is accessed via the reception hall and features a rustic rope banister. The landing provides access to two bedrooms with the master bedroom benefiting from a dual aspect and ample space for wardrobes and a king size bed. Both are served by the family bathroom equipped with a panel enclosed bath, low level WC, wash basin and vanity unit.


Attractive rustic fencing and verdant hedgerow from the front boundary providing an attractive screen from passers by with remote five gate and separate pedestrian gate opening on to the gravelled driveway offering extensive parking fronting the detached single timber garage. A neatly edged raised lawn extends to the left boundary with gated pathway through to a walled seating area which meets the neatly levelled lawn edged by a well stocked flower bed and high fencing all overlooking paddocks and open countryside to the rear.


Dingley Dell enjoys an extremely private and discrete position in a rural location on the fringes of the villages of Wellow and Sherfield English. The immediate scenery is stunning offering picturesque walks, cycle rides and horse riding. Such is the privacy of Wellow Wood hamlet that it remains quite unknown to many locals. Within walking distance are the beautiful Wellow church and village green and the popular Hatchett public house along with the village shop, post office and active village hall. More extensive amenities are available in the nearby market town of Romsey just a few miles away. There is excellent schooling for children of all ages both in the state and private sector.

Agents Notes

Unusually this period home is not listed. It is served by oil fired central heating and private drainage installed by the current owners. We understand the two storey roof was completely re-thatched and the single storey re-ridged in 2012. Both roofs were cleaned and patched where necessary in 2016. The property was significantly extended and refurbished in 2012.


From our offices in West Wellow proceed along the A36 towards Salisbury into the village of Plaitford turning right into Sherfield English Road. Proceed for approximately 1.5 miles and Wellow Wood Road can be found on your right hand side.
