This delightful family home is located on the edge of the sought after Hampshire village of Twyford with its gardens and grounds running down to the River Itchen with double-bank fishing. Once through a set of wooden electric gates, the gravel driveway leads to the front of the house with plenty of room for parking several cars. The property offers in excess of 6800 sq ft of flexible accommodation including a bespoke 2-bedroom annexe or secondary accommodation with its own private access and separate underfloor heating.

At the heart of this home is the exquisite large kitchen with plenty of worktop/preparation space and a wealth of storage in the form of grey fitted cupboards and shelving. There is a large 4 oven gas Aga and integrated Miele appliances, a large central island complete with induction hob and a dining area at the far end for entertaining with French doors leading onto a terrace overlooking the gardens and grounds. Adjacent to the kitchen is the family/play room also with French doors to the terrace and door through to a rear hallway accessing guest accommodation/ annexe providing two bedrooms, one with an ensuite shower, bathroom, utility and door to the outside.

Great entertaining space is on offer with five large receptions rooms, four of them flowing via charming double doors into each other. The drawing room, sitting room and dining room all have high ceilings and large bay windows creating lovely light rooms with the benefit of French doors out to the garden from the drawing room. There is also a cloakroom and stairs from the rear hallway down to the cellar.

Ascending to the first floor there are five double bedrooms including the master suite, which is stunning in its own right with an en suite bathroom, walk in dressing room and doors out onto a balcony with lovely views of the garden. There are two family bathrooms servicing the remaining bedrooms and on the top floor there are two further bedrooms, a cloakroom and a generous loft space.

This property has 4.9 acres of land.

Outside

The generous garden and grounds are truly magnificent to behold with a large manicured lawn extending down to the river with numerous mature flowerbeds complete with specimen shrubs, mature trees and fruit orchard. There is a large paved terrace extending from the drawing room around to raised decking outside the kitchen and family room. There is also an outdoor pool which is heated by solar panels and gas, a barn, several garages and offices. The latter of which offers potential we believe to create secondary accommodation subject to planning permission.

Undoubtedly, for a keen angler Hockley House represents a unique opportunity, with double-bank fishing on the River Itchen one could easily spend many a day casting for their big catch.

Situation

Twyford lies on the eastern bank of the well-known Itchen Valley. Twyford itself has a first class range of amenities including a very active post office with village store, adjoining restaurant and physiotherapist, a doctors surgery with pharmacy, hairdresser, church, a further restaurant and public house together with a highly regarded travel agent. In addition there is the Hunter Park recreation ground with its cricket pitch and tennis courts, together with many other sporting facilities, including several excellent golf courses nearby; Hockley Golf Course and South Winchester Golf Club.

The village is also well known for St Mary’s Church of England Primary School and Twyford Prep School. There are a good selection of state and private schools for all ages in Winchester with bus services from the village to Princes Mead, Peter Symonds Sixth Form College, King Edwards and The Greggs in Southampton.

There is a mainline railway station in neighbouring Shawford with a direct service to London Waterloo. The Cathedral City of Winchester lies just to the north and offers more comprehensive amenities including an excellent range of shops, cultural and recreational facilities, together with its mainline railway station.

To the south of Winchester lies the M3 motorway (Junction 11), providing excellent communications to all parts of the country, including the South Coast, London and the Midlands. Southampton International Airport lies just to the south at Eastleigh.
