The Property:

'Holly House' is a spacious detached home set in an elevated position with some fabulous views over extensive gardens and countryside to both the front and rear. The property, which is believed to have been built in 1992, has been remodelled and improved in recent years resulting in well laid out and spacious accommodation ideal for family living. A generous entrance hall leads through to the open plan kitchen/dining room, a superb area offering flexible space for eating and living. This room is fitted with a range of base and eye level units with sleek granite worksurfaces over, integrated Bosch and Neff appliances and a beautiful solid oak floor throughout. From here you can access the lovely double aspect drawing room, complete with a fitted wood burning stove and French doors out onto the rear terrace. A further reception room, currently used as a sitting room, and a utility room complete the ground floor accommodation. At first floor level are five good bedrooms including a principle bedroom suite with dressing area and en-suite bathroom, a split-level guest room with en-suite shower room, three further bedrooms and a family bathroom. The house is approached through a traditional wooden five bar gate and a gravel driveway leads to the house which is flanked by well-manicured lawn with a range of shrub and herbaceous planting. To the side of the property is a lovely landscaped garden and an impressive summer house. At the rear of the house is an attractive private terrace which enjoys views of the neighbouring fields. Attached to the house is a well-appointed double garage with power and lighting.

The Location:

'Holly House' is situated in the delightfully unspoilt Test Valley hamlet of Up Somborne, an area surrounded by beautiful countryside with a network of bridleways and footpaths and close to Farley Mount Country Park. The property is well-located for the amenities in the local Georgian market town of Stockbridge (c.4 miles), with its renowned butcher, many shops, restaurants, convenience store and Post Office. More extensive facilities can be found in the cathedral cities of Winchester and Salisbury. Winchester's mainline railway station (6.8 miles) offers a fast and regular service to London waterloo (c.60 minutes). There is easy access to the west via the A303, with the M3, M27 and A34 also being within easy reach. Educational facilities are excellent, being within easy reach of the highly regarded Farleigh and Norman Court preparatory schools, Winchester College and St. Swithuns' in Winchester and Godolphin school in Salisbury, whilst the neighbouring village of King's Somborne also provides a village store/Post Office, public house, Church and primary school.


From Winchester take the A30 Stockbridge Road proceeding past Sparsholt College. Take the next left which is signposted Kings Somborne and enter the village. Turn left onto Strawberry Lane and the property will be on the left-hand side, just opposite the entrance to the village playing field.
