The Granary is a spacious, modern, reverse level home. Designed and built with great thought and care. This south facing property is truly unique and finished to the highest quality and standards and well worth viewing.

A cosy modern home, cheap to run and easy to maintain, provides open-plan living and takes full advantage of the beautiful views.

The first of many hidden surprises is a deck level entry over a footbridge, to the front door. The spacious deck, surrounded by a glass balustrade provides a stunning entry to the house.

Once inside, the bright, airy open-plan sitting room with a beamed semi-vaulted ceiling and engineered solid wood floor is revealed. The quadruple aspect of the room takes full advantage of the beautiful views. A Contura log burner is the centrepiece of the room and adds to the cosy feel. A glass balustrade leads you to a feature oak staircase down to the ground level.

To the right and behind a discrete entrance is the large master bedroom. This triple aspect room has a large west facing window offering secluded views of the garden. It has modern built in cupboards and leads to a generous ensuite with bath and shower facility.

To the left the open-plan diner with ample built in storage leads to the kitchen. The stone flooring and clever design allows these two rooms to effortlessly merge into one another and provides an ideal setting for informal dining.

The kitchen also with plenty of storage, is fully integrated with top of the range Bosch electrical kitchen appliances including an induction hob, two ovens, one with built in microwave and steamer, a larder fridge, dishwasher and a Franke hot tap.

Off the kitchen, is a large utility room, which provides a walk in larder, laundry facility and contains the plant that runs the house.

The kitchen and dining areas have glass doors leading onto the large patio, which completely encircles the house. This ‘below ground level’ patio provides a wonderful sense of seclusion, is a sun trap and has a circular set of steps leading back to the gated entrance at one end and another set of steps to the garden.

The Granary is in the top 1% of energy efficient homes in the country, with an energy performance rating of A92 and uses renewable energy sources. This means it benefits from both Tariff and Renewable Heat Incentive schemes. The net running costs are just over £500 per annum.

Recognised by the industry in terms of building excellence, The Granary received on merit, an LABC award for building excellence, in the category of best new individual new home 2016


Opposite the house is a large integrated office/workshop, built to the same exacting standards. This space with underfloor heating and shower room allows for guest accommodation and a working from home office. The store provides good garage space for a small vehicle and is fully equipped with lighting and power points. Between the store and greenhouse is an outside utility area and all the buildings benefit from feature night lighting.

There is plenty of off road parking to both the house and field. The adjoining field (Lot 2) is fenced, with double gated access from the lane. The large vegetable plot and small orchard have their own water supply and potting shed.


Surrounded by the South Downs National Park, the house benefits from being in the midst of the renowned Meon Valley yet within a short distance of the villages of Swanmore and Droxford. A wider range of amenities are available from the market towns of Bishop's Waltham and Wickham. The cathedral city of Winchester, about 13 miles away has a range of shops and leisure facilities and is about 1 hour from London by train. The area also offers a wealth of country pursuits on the doorstep with footpaths and bridleways.

There are also a good selection of independent schools in the area including King Edward VI, Wykeham House, Twyford, Churchers College, Bedales, Princes Mead, Pilgrims, Winchester College, St Swithun’s and Peter Symonds 6th Form College in Winchester.

There are mainline stations at Winchester, Southampton and Petersfield. The M27 junction 10 is about 9 miles away giving good access to the M3 and A3 offering direct routes to London. Southampton Airport is about 12 miles away and offers flights to various European destinations.
