Hydawn in Gundleton is situated in a tucked away location amongst beautiful rolling countryside between the village of Ropley and the market town of Alresford. Although in this rural location, it is not isolated with the nearby village of Ropley providing a village store with a post office and the small Georgian market town of Alresford approximately 3 miles away.
The A31 provides a good link to the cathedral city of Winchester and to Alton, both of which have excellent amenities including mainline stations to London Waterloo. The M3 motorway and the A3 give excellent access to London, Gatwick, Heathrow and the M25 and the national motorway network and in a southerly direction to the International Airport at Southampton.
There is superb range of schools including St Swithuns School for Girls, Winchester College, Bedales, Prince’s Mead, Twyford and Ropley C of E Primary School.
Hydawn was built in 2016 to exacting standards with contemporary open plan accommodation offering a light and bright living environment. The internal living space extends to just over 2430 sq. ft across one storey with banks of glass walls affording fabulous views out over the grounds and countryside beyond. This truly impressive space is a great format for everyday living and entertaining and enables one to create living zones within the property that are flexible and can be easily tailored to the individuals requirements. The large sitting room is orientated towards the east, full-height glass walls span the width of this impressive living space inviting the outside in and framing the external environment perfectly. This also allows the entire space to open on to the surrounding terrace in the summer months. A log-burning stove is a focal point of the room. A contemporary kitchen has been designed with a firm focus on functionality and ease of use, with appliances neatly built into bespoke cabinetry. A large utility space and shower room are interconnected.
The bedrooms are arranged on one side of the property with the main bedroom suite on the southern side, sliding glass doors provide direct access to the terrace. A large family bathroom is interconnected. The two additional bedrooms are each well proportioned, with a generous amount of storage.
There is also a study/home workspace and a useful storage room.
The property has been designed with a high level of energy retention and efficiency in mind. The house has an Air Source Heat Pump system, heat recovery ventilation system, underfloor heating managed on individual controllers and is code 5 compliant with Kloeber triple glazing. Highly insulated, the house has been carefully designed to maintain regular temperatures in winter conditions whilst regulating against excessive heat gain in summer months.
The property is approached via gates which open on to a large gravel drive which provides parking for numerous vehicles as well as access to the garaging. The grounds are a real feature of Hydawn with expanse of open lawn incorporating undulations which create a park like feel. The property occupies a more elevated position within the grounds and therefore has a commanding outlook across the garden and neighbouring countryside.
