Newton House is accessed through large wrought iron, electronic gates off Newton Lane. There is a sweeping gravelled drive, which arrives at the front of the house in a large square parking area that can comfortably accommodate up to six cars, surrounded by flourishing ornamental borders. A separate drive branches off the main, providing access to the staff flat, 2 garages, stabling, machinery barn and further parking space.

Newton House's strikingly elegant architecture combines contemporary comfort with aspects of Arts and Crafts style. The tile hung roof, built using the traditional method, gothic shaped windows with tracery detail and jettied first floor construction all hint at the careful design that serves to harmonise this modern masterpiece with its surroundings. The house, which was designed and built for the current owners, was finished in 2008. It stands on the former site of a 20th century farmhouse, which has been replaced in its entirety.

Inside, the reception hall is an impressive welcome to Newton House with its sweeping, central, art deco style staircase, that draws the eye up to the first floor ceiling, and its oak floor. From the hall there are doors to the downstairs cloakroom, double drawing room, dining room and the kitchen. The drawing room is wonderfully light, on account of the large, south east facing bay window. It has a open fire place with stone surrounds that forms the central point of the room and hard wooden flooring that continues from the hallway.

Double doors open through to the second half of the drawing room, which has a matching fire place and double doors onto the terrace. The view from this room offers lovely vistas over the landscaped gardens and beyond into rolling countryside. The bespoke kitchen, by Halstocks, is also orientated to make the most of the view. It has a stone tiled floor and double doors leading to the terrace and garden. The work surfaces are slate and there is a five-door electric aga, butler's sink, two fridges, two freezers and two dishwashers. Accessed from the rear hall is the utility room, two fully fitted coat cupboards with automatic lighting and the climate controlled wine cellar, which has bottle storage and a wine tasting area. There is a door leading into the study which is fitted with floor to ceiling cabinetry, down lighters and hard wood flooring. There is a further set of double doors leading out on to the stone terrace from this room. On the opposite side of the rear hall, with easy access to the kitchen and dining room, is the fully equipped butler's pantry, with smooth granite work surfaces, sink, warming tray, drinks fridge and a large floor to ceiling dresser in black walnut wood for crockery and glass storage. The dual aspect dining room mirrors the drawing room, with wooden floors and a large south east facing bay window.

The bedrooms on the first floor are exquisitely designed for comfort and convenience and are presented to the highest standard. Each bedroom benefits from an en suite bath or shower room with heated towel rails and has substantial storage in the form of either a dressing room or walk-in wardrobe(s). The interior design gives each bedroom its own distinct character.

The second floor is the ideal space for guests or children. On one side of the landing there is a cloakroom, linen store/laundry room, cinema room with air conditioning, and a fitted cinema system, and a games room. On the other side of the landing is a kitchenette with a shelf and plugs for microwave and kettle, ideal for guests to use, another linen cupboard, automatically lit, with loft hatch, and two further bedroom suites.

Outside, much attention to design and detail has been applied to the landscaping of the grounds as it has to the house, by Chelsea Flower Show award winning garden designer Sarah Eberle.

Newton House sits in a fantastic rural position with far-reaching views across the rolling Hampshire countryside, on the edge of the hamlet of Newton Valence.

The neighbouring idyllic village of Selborne is best known for its association with the 18th Century literary great, Reverend Gilbert White, who is widely considered to be England's first ecologist. In addition to the beautiful historic church, village green and two public houses, the village is extremely well equipped for everyday conveniences with the Post Office and shop, art gallery and village gift shops.

Newton House is approximately 3 miles from the village of Chawton, which was both the home and inspiration of Jane Austen.

The nearby market town of Alton, less than 6 miles away, offers an extensive range of shops, restaurants, boutiques, coffee shops and supermarkets, including Waitrose. The market town of Farnham and the larger cathedral city of Winchester, are two of the county's principal urban centres.
