White Oak is set in the beautiful rolling Hampshire countryside of the Test Valley. Nearby is the historic village of Braishfield, with its award winning village shop and two public houses and within ten minutes is both Winchester and the bustling market town of Romsey. The house is located within striking distance to the South Coast, the New Forest and close by is excellent fly fishing on the River Test. Located in a quiet rural location, yet close to the M3 and fast train links to London. There are many well known private preparatory and secondary schools within easy reach of this family home.

White Oak is a classical style country house, of handmade local Michelmersh bricks and a roof of natural slate, blending traditional architecture and craftsmanship with modern technology. The accommodation, arranged over two floors, has an internal area of about 4,700 sq ft (436 sq m) and there is also a useful flat over the garages, that can be used for staff or further family. The rooms are well proportioned with
moulded cornices and bespoke skirting boards. Off the entrance hallway is a study, drawing room, large playroom and sitting room. The drawing room has a period fireplace from Chesneys of London. The spacious and light kitchen has been designed by Mark Wilkinson, with French doors leading out to a terrace and the gardens. Beyond the kitchen is a large Mark Wilkinson designed laundry and boot room.

On the first floor are six bedrooms. The principal bedroom with en suite bathroom and dressing room, three further bedrooms with en suite bathrooms. Bedrooms five and six share a generous family bathroom. Each of the bathrooms has an individual design and underfloor heated limestone floors.

The gardens and grounds are a fabulous feature of the property, with the house sitting centrally in its land. The current owners have expertly created the gardens that are seen today, that give a stunning backdrop through the seasons. There are extensive flat lawns and one which is a football pitch in the winter and a grass tennis court in the summer, beside which is an Astro cricket wicket. A swimming pool has also been added. There are now well stocked borders, mature hedging, a lovely parterre rose garden beside the house and a myriad of newly planted trees. Beyond the gardens is the more informal area with paths mown as it meanders through an open area of woodland.

Across the driveway is the double garage, currently used as a gym. Above is a one bedroom flat, with living room and bathroom. On the ground floor is the kitchen and separate cloakroom.
