Situated at the end of a private driveway and one of just three detached houses, Woodbine House is an attractive individually styled house behind Michelmersh brick elevations under a tiled roof. The property has been well maintained by the current and only owner and now offers a new incumbent the chance to cosmetically improve. A centralised front door opens into a large welcoming reception hall which is partially double height with stairs that rise to a galleried landing. Double doors open into the drawing room which is a well-proportioned dual aspect room with windows overlooking the rear garden and an impressive fireplace with a gas fire. Another pair of doors open into the conservatory which neatly links to the hallway. The sitting room is currently used as a large home office which has a door to the side garden and a useful storeroom. The dining room is again a double aspect room with an ornamental gas fire whilst the kitchen/breakfast room is triple aspect and has a feature bay window which provides space for everyday dining; a door opens onto the rear terrace. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a study, cloakroom and cloaks cupboard, and utility room which has a door opening to the side garden with ample space for appliances as well as the boiler. The galleried landing has a beautifully bright and open feel with a bank of windows to the rear overlooking the garden and maximises light to the entrance hall. A principal bedroom suite has a small balcony, fitted wardrobes and a large four-piece bathroom. There is a guest bedroom en-suite and three other double bedrooms, all featuring built in wardrobes; these are served by a five-piece family bathroom. The property sits within a beautifully maintained half acre plot, planted with an array of shrubs, lawn and terraces to the rear. The front is approached over an expansive gravelled driveway with well-maintained shrub borders and mature, neatly cropped box hedging. The triple garage stands at 90 degrees to the house and has three up and over doors, as well as windows to the rear, a fitted sink and pedestrian door. Deep hedges wrap around the north/east boundary providing excellent areas for children to explore.
'Woodbine House' is within the heart of the pretty and picturesque Hampshire village of Sparsholt. Sparsholt itself is situated approximately 3 ½ miles to the west of Winchester within a Conservation Area. The village benefits from a local shop, Church, excellent primary school, thriving cricket club and the well-known Plough Inn and Lainston House Hotel. The area is surrounded by beautiful countryside with a network of bridleways and footpaths that link to Farley Mount Country Park, ideally suited for walking, riding and other outdoor pursuits. Winchester's mainline railway station offers a fast and regular service to London waterloo (approx. 60 minutes). There is easy access to the west via the A303, with the M3, M27 and the A34 also close by. Educational facilities are excellent for both state and private schools, with Henry Beaufort, Kings, and Westgate secondary schools as well as Peter Symonds VI form college located within just a few miles and within easy reach of the highly regarded Twyford and Farleigh preparatory schools, Winchester College, St. Swithuns' in Winchester and Godolphin school in Salisbury.
From Winchester proceed in a westerly direction towards Stockbridge on the Stockbridge Road (B3049). After approximately 1 mile after leaving the city boundaries turn left, signposted Sparsholt/Lainston House. Proceed past Lainston House and The Plough Inn into the heart of the village turning right directly after the Church into Church Lane, following the road round to the right-hand bend. Take the right-hand fork into Home Lane, proceeding straight over through gates signed The Lodge/Mayfield House and Woodbine House. Woodbine House is the last house at the end of the private drive.
