About the property
STRIKING APARTMENT IN THIS GRADE II* LISTED GEORGIAN COUNTRY HOUSE, SITUATED ON THE BANKS OF THE RIVER ITCHEN.
Originally dating back to 1762, Brambridge House is a substantial Grade II* listed Georgian Country House situated on the banks of the River Itchen. Having been converted into flats in the 1950's, the imposing country house now comprises fourteen substantial apartments with the use of stunning grounds totalling 14 acres. This striking apartment offers the opportunity to acquire a slice of history, with the benefits of being in an incredibly convenient location, on the edge of the South Downs National Park and within easy access of Winchester City Centre.
When the current owners originally acquired the apartment, it was in need of total refurbishment. The property has since been completely transformed and very successfully blends contemporary additions whilst ensuring original features are retained, along with additions that are sympathetic to the nature of the building. The property occupies a ground floor position, with access into the apartment shared with only one other property. The entrance hallway is a striking room, with an entirely mirrored wall and original parquet flooring. This leads straight through to the kitchen which, in our opinion, is one of the resounding features of the property. Like most of the other rooms in the apartment, this space benefits from double doors leading onto the terrace and views of the countryside beyond. No expense has been spared in this ?Inframe' kitchen, with attention to detail at the forefront; from the Quartz worktops to the underfloor heating and instant hot water tap. One wall in this room is entirely tiled, a striking contrast to the designer ?Revolution' wallpaper and the original cabinets and wood panelling that occupies two of the other walls.
From here, double doors in the oak panelling lead through to the impressive Drawing Room. This room has a stunning geometric ceiling, which gives the building its Grade II* listing. This room is believed to be the original dining room to the house in 18th Century, with its large working open fireplace and, now restored, parquet flooring. From here three large French Windows offer uninterrupted views over open countryside, two of which allow access onto the terrace. As with all of the original windows in this apartment, these all have shutters.
As with all of the other rooms, excluding the third bedroom, the Master Bedroom has high ceilings, measuring approx. thirteen feet in height. One wall is covered with a designer wallpaper mural, period coving and French windows allowing stunning countryside views. The second bedroom also enjoys these views, with designer ?Revolution' wallpaper and French doors which lead onto the private terrace. The third bedroom is also well-proportioned and is currently being used as an office, with a built in cupboard housing the boiler and water softener and water filter system. Situated off the inner hallway is the bathroom. As with every other room in this property, the bathroom has been sympathetically renovated with the period of the house in mind. These features include a clawfoot bath, high cistern toilet and attractive period subway tiles. The room is laid with parquet flooring and benefits from underfloor heating. Finally, a convenient laundry cupboard is located off the inner hallway.
The benefits of having this ground floor apartment is without question the terrace that you are able to enjoy and access directly from several of the rooms. This terrace is flanked by six fluted columns and small steps lead to the rest of the grounds, which are enjoyed by all of the residents of Brambridge House. In total there are 14 acres of private woodland, an orchard and open space meaning you are always able to find a private spot. The stunning ?gin clear' River Itchen runs through the grounds and there is an abundance of wildlife, from deer frequently on the lawn outside the apartment to an abundance of birdlife. This apartment also comes with a garage in a block, allocated parking and generous visitors' parking. It also benefits a share of the freehold.
Brambridge is set in a beautiful rural location just 6.2 miles south of Winchester and only a few minutes from Shawford Train Station, offering free parking and a direct link to London. The m3 is also within easy reach. Southampton airport is a mere 5 miles from the property. Locally there are village stores in Brambridge and also Otterbourne. A choice of several good Pubs and Restaurants, a post office, a garage, a nine hole golf course, driving range and garden centre.
