Just wait until you see the interiors…
A stunning character home with mesmerising views over the River Test in Hampshire has gone on sale for £1.45 million.
Drayton Corner is an impressive home that oozes a refined rustic aesthetic and offers a real escape-to-the-country lifestyle opportunity. Located in the highly desirable village of Houghton, it’s nestled in the picturesque Test Valley, with the cathedral cities of Winchester and Salisbury just half an hour’s drive away.
The front door opens into an entrance vestibule, which in turn opens onto the main hall, with views over the living room and its wealth of exposed oak beams and a bank of glazed double doors and windows overlooking the rear garden.
This open-plan arrangement gives a great feeling of space and connectivity throughout the ground floor — a place that’s truly perfect for entertaining.
There are large doors that open out onto the main sitting room, with its large central fireplace housing a cosy log-burner. This well-proportioned room with large exposed oaks is a fantastic living space.
A study at the other end of the property provides a great area for home working as well as the potential to double up as a fifth bedroom. Out of the main hallway, a turning staircase rises to the first floor with the bridge and gallery area where you can soak up fantastic aspects up to the cathedral-like ceilings.
The master bedroom with walk-in wardrobe and en suite bathroom is particularly appealing with its own doors out onto a rear balcony, with fine views to take in along with your morning coffee.
There are three further bedrooms on this floor including a guest bedroom with en suite shower room, while the two remaining rooms share a family bathroom.
At the back, there’s a lovely terrace where you can enjoy sundowners and the views out over the River Test.
Property agent Giles Muddle says: “This is one of those special properties that wins on many fronts, great location, great accommodation and delightful views out over the River Test – a fabulous property.”
The property is on the market for £1,450,000 via Savills.
