The house, built by Sherbourne Developments Limited, and first occupied by the present owners in 2015, has been constructed in a classical and traditional manor and sits well within its garden and grounds. This is the first substantial newly built property in Penton Mewsey since 1852 and is situated on the outskirts of the village occupying a fine position with a good southerly aspect.

The property is offered in immaculate order throughout, offering just under 6,000 square foot of living accommodation over three floors. It has been built to a high specification with great attention being paid to detail. The layout makes it ideal for either entertaining or comfortable family living. The well-appointed kitchen/ breakfast room is the hub of the house with southerly views over its garden and land beyond and has French doors leading onto a terrace. Beyond this room is a well thought out back room area comprising of a laundry room, boot room, larder, and cloakroom. In addition, there are four well-appointed reception rooms, all benefiting from a dual aspect.

Over the first floor, on the western side of the house, is the principal bedroom with an adjoining dressing room and bathroom, as well as a walk-in-wardrobe. On this floor, off the large spacious landing, are two further well-appointed bedrooms and adjoining bathrooms.

The second floor comprises two well-proportioned double bedrooms, a family bathroom and a storeroom.

There is a two Bay brick and timber clad garage with machinery store and flat above. The flat or home office comprises of a reception room with open plan kitchen and shower room. In addition, close to the entrance of the property, is another brick and timber clad garage which is currently used as a machinery store.

The property is approached through automated security gates with night time automated flood lighting into a courtyard area with a gravelled drive leading to the house and garage, also providing access to the meadow beyond.

The easily managed landscaped gardens are mainly to the rear of the property, off a large terrace and overlook the adjoining meadow land. There is ample room in this area to revert the land to paddock and construct some stabling (subject to the necessary planning consent) or there is a nearby livery for those equestrian enthusiasts, if required.

The Pentons is first recorded in The Domesday Book, though nearby Neolithic Roman archaeological evidence suggest much earlier than human settlement. In the 1921 census 209 people lived in the village and today it is 290. This population increase is about a tenth of the national average.

The village of Penton Mewsey is situated approximately 3 miles north west of the Hampshire market town of Andover. Renowned for its equestrian connections, it also has an attractive village cricket green with its own cricket team with adjoining tennis courts, a XIV century church, a Public House and a children nursery. More local amenities are available in the nearby villages of Weyhill and Charlton.
