Longparish, Andover, Hampshire Sp11
An imposing and substantial family house of over 6,000 sq ft with Edwardian proportions and characteristics together with a detached two bedroom guest lodge, garaging and self-contained annexe, standing within private mature gardens and grounds of about 5.24 acres on the edge of the village. Potential to rent this property in its entirety.
Eastfield House originates from the late Victorian and Edwardian era, understood to have been the home of General Oswald, Intelligence Corps, during World War II. The present owners acquired the property in 1992 and completely renovated and re-modelled the house as well as largely extending the property. The property burnt down on the night of 25 January 2005! The vendors moved back into the house in the spring of 2007 after it had been completely rebuilt to include a spacious second floor extension. The main house provides comprehensive family accommodation featuring mostly dual or triple aspect rooms, high ceilings, detailed coving and ceiling roses, porcelain tiled or oak flooring, oak/glass doors and oak joinery. The house is centrally heated by underfloor heating and supper-efficient space saving radiators. The property is double glazed throughout with large sash windows affording an outlook towards farmland over the extensive 5.24 acre gardens and grounds with tennis court and sweeping private lawns interspersed with an abundance of mature trees. Ancillary accommodation includes a detached 2 bed/2 bath modern lodge, a separate self-contained loft annexe, incorporated within the detached garaging.
Eastfield Lodge Vacation Rentals, has provided a gross income of circa £35,000 per annum.
The property is situated on the edge of Longparish, where properties very rarely come to the market. The village offers everyday amenities including a shop/Post Office, primary school and playing field, church, bus service, and nearby riverside walks.
