The hamlet of Preshaw is a privately owned country estate and is acclaimed as a unique environment in the heart of the South Downs National Park and beautiful Meon Valley. Approached via a private mile-long tree-lined drive, this property forms part of a conversion from the original Preshaw Estate and is one of a number of properties which have been imaginatively converted using reclaimed materials about 25 years ago.
Preshaw is a hidden gem historically recorded as one of the 'Four Jewels of Hampshire'. A classic English estate of 1,200 acres, Preshaw Estate is made up of parkland, woodland and fields. The main house is Grade II listed and is surrounded by twenty-five properties that were developed in 1994 from former barns, stables and cottages that served the house. The estate lies within an area of outstanding natural beauty, with a long-distance footpath, The Monarch's Way, bordering the estate.
