Look up ‘five bedroom home for sale in rural Hampshire’ on the internet and the chances are that you will click through five pages of rambling farmhouses and ancient country piles before you find anything below the million pound mark.
Admittedly many of these homes come with acres of parkland, or at least a very generous garden. But what if you don’t want a large garden and you are actively looking for something more manageable? And, even with the smaller homes, as pretty as the thatched cottages are; or as elegant as the Georgian townhouses might be, perhaps you want a home that won’t demand endless expensive repairs, alterations and maintenance
In the village of Sutton Scotney there is currently one five bedroom detached home remaining for sale at Linden Homes’ Taylor’s Grange development. This home (number 12) has been designed on the outside in such a way that in a few years time you would think they had always been there. But walk through the door and you’ll find that the interior is very much a product of 2014:
And what you are unlikely to get when you buy a period home in a rural location is a brand new fitted, high specification kitchen complete with fully fitted and guaranteed appliances. The bathrooms and shower rooms are also tiled and finished to a high standard.
The home is arranged over two floors: The master bedroom has its own dressing room and, like bedroom two, has an ensuite bathroom. Downstairs the kitchen/breakfast room and the living room both are fitted with elegant bi-fold doors that take your eye through the room and out into the garden. There is a separate dining room and study, while the kitchen has a separate utility room and outside there is parking for three cars.
For many, the traditional Hampshire village represents the ideal location for a home: Hampshire is within reach of London, the West Country and the coast and there are many popular shopping hubs like Southampton, Portsmouth and Winchester which are easy to get to.
And yet once you leave the motorway on your way home from work or a shopping expedition, you can descend into the tranquillity and seclusion of village life.
Sutton Scotney, with its pub, its exceptional village shop and post office has all the attributes of a Hampshire village community, including two modern, high specification, traditionally built spacious five bedroom homes.
