Beautiful and luxuriously appointed country home with far-reaching views.
Designed by ACR Architecture for the current owners, and built in 2017 by Haygarth Ross, Grange View House is the perfect marriage of a classically designed modern house in a unique rural setting. Meticulously designed to complement the backdrop of rolling Hampshire countryside, the house is light, spacious and with accommodation that suits either comfortable family living or generous entertaining.The front door opens into a spacious entrance hall with a low rise staircase leading to a galleried landing. There are glazed doors to the principal reception rooms creating a light and welcoming feel. The double aspect drawing room has large sash windows and has an adjoining bar with fitted furniture and double doors to the stone terrace. The heart of the house is a magnificent kitchen with handmade units by Guild Anderson. Appliances include a Quooker boiling water tap, Miele ovens and a large Fisher and Paykel fridge/ freezer. A central island incorporates a curved diner bench for the breakfast table and there is plenty of space for a sofa. Adjoining the kitchen is the dining room as well as a dedicated wine store with two Eurocave wine cabinets. The remainder of the ground floor is made up of a study, utility room, boot room, two cloakrooms and a larder.Upstairs, the spacious, double aspect principal bedroom has a dedicated dressing room with two walls of fitted wardrobes and drawers made by John Lewis of Hungerford. There is a luxurious en suite bathroom with a Clearwater bath and Villeroy and Boch cabinets. Three further double bedrooms (two with en suite shower rooms) and a family bathroom make up the first floor accommodation. On the second floor is space used for gym/yoga/tv room, a further bedroom with en suite shower room and a walk-in wardrobe. There are two additional rooms currently used for storage which could be used as a further bedroom, walk in wardrobe or hobby rooms.From Rectory Lane the sweeping gravel drive leads from an electric wooden gate, up to the front door and the garage, providing plenty of parking.The majority of the garden extends to the south and east of the house with a stone and gravel terrace immediately to the rear of the house taking advantage of this private and sunny aspect. Flower beds planted with soft purple and pink perennials with plenty of lavender brings a Provencal theme which is further enhanced by the boules pitch. The lawn gently slopes away and there is a wrought iron fence and gate leading to a paddock. The gravel area continues to the west side of the house which incorporates the productive kitchen garden within raised beds.
