Nether Wallop, Stockbridge, Hampshire So20
A detached converted barn and annexe set in 5.4 acres with paddocks, stables, manege and nearby cross-country course
A substantial detached complex of converted barns comprising an extremely spacious five bedroom family home together with a detached brick and flint annexe/holiday let, outbuildings including car ports, former granary, workshop and stables, standing in over five acres of grounds on the edge of this beautiful village.
Out-riding is available from the gate onto a network of bridleways and near neighbour (Dene Farm) has a cross country course with an annual permit option
The renowned architect Huw Thomas designed a scheme for the conversion and creation of Place Farm Barns that was completed in 2001. The main house has extremely spacious accommodation, nearly all the living and bedroom spaces have high vaulted ceilings with the centre piece being an exceptional split level, dual aspect drawing room with adjoining family room. There are five double bedrooms and four bathrooms. Separate from the main house there is an attractive brick/flint self-contained annexe/holiday let that has provided a steady income in recent years, generally young couples escaping city life for a quality break. There is a former granary that could also be converted (STPP) as well as a car port and workshop. From an equine perspective there is the benefit of four stables, locked tack room, field shelter, manège, hard-standing for lorry/trailer and paddocks as well as good out-riding and an easily accessible cross country course just down the lane.
The property is situated on the very eastern edge of the sought after village of Nether Wallop which has a primary school, church and village hall. Over Wallop has a shop/post office and public house.
