A stunning Grade II listed Georgian home offering classical architecture in a sublime setting, next to the Church in this quiet backwater of Bishops Waltham.

Hope House is a classically beautiful Georgian Grade II listed house, dating back to the 1740s, with a wonderful façade and in a picturesque setting adjoining the Church of St Peter and its grounds. This stunning landmark property was extended and altered in the 19th and 20th centuries, and has been more recently further improved by the current owners to create the beautiful family home which stands today. The impressive accommodation is arranged over three floors, extending to just over 4,300 sq. Ft, providing gracious and beautifully proportioned accommodation, typical of a property of the Georgian era. The house is set in a 1/3 of an acre with walled wrap-around gardens.

On the ground floor is an elegant entrance hall which creates a particularly welcoming feel. From here, doors lead to a stylish drawing room, with large Georgian sash windows, exposed oak wooden floors and an impressive open fireplace. The music room is equally as striking, again with large sash windows and French doors which open to the rear garden and a wonderful working fireplace with beautiful arched alcoves either side. The bespoke kitchen/breakfast room is a fabulous living space and is a real hub of the home. The kitchen itself has been designed by Martin Moore and is fitted with a comprehensive range of units and appliances, including an electric Aga and a separate gas Neff oven and hob and large central island with granite tops. The kitchen is open plan through to a breakfast room, creating an ample dining space. There is also a log burner and from here there is access to a study. The kitchen opens into a superb garden room with six large sash windows, doors into the garden and with a central roof lantern and a gas burner. A cloakroom and access to the original cellars complete the accommodation at this level. There are front doors both to St Peter’s Street and the garden.

On the first floor are four spacious bedrooms, all with extensive cupboard space. There is a family bathroom and a dressing room. The principal bedroom is particularly notable, extending to approximately 19ft, with built in wardrobes, gorgeous views over the gardens and church grounds, and an en suite bathroom with underfloor heating. There is a further single bedroom with a separate room for laundry utilities. On the second floor is one further sizeable bedroom and a large bathroom, plus a nursery and a study.

Outside, the property is approached through electric double gates, opening to a large driveway in turn leading to the double car port, with a further garage/workshop adjoining. The front of the house is delightfully presented, with the structured garden featuring well-stocked shrub and rose beds and a row of cherry trees and espaliered apple trees and a beautiful central pond and fountain feature set within a gravelled circle. The gardens wrap around the house and extend to approximately one third of an acre, with the main gardens enjoying a south-easterly and south-westerly aspect, with a stone globe water feature, irrigation system, and two garden stores. The attractively landscaped gardens and walled boundary with the church beyond, creates a particularly calm and peaceful environment.

In all, there is a wealth of charm and character with classically proportioned rooms, high ceilings and large sash windows creating a wonderful home full of natural light and superb entertaining space.

Hope House is situated at the end of a charming, little known, no-through street, next to St. Peters church in Bishop’s Waltham to the southern end of the Meon Valley surrounded by beautiful countryside on the edge of the South Downs. The house is in St Peter’s Street which is a two minute walk to the centre of the thriving small country town which has several restaurants, pubs, cafes and shops, a fresh fish shop, a butcher and greengrocer, a post office and doctors’ surgery.

Hope House is incredibly well placed for easy communications, with Winchester station about 10 miles away, taking only approximately 57 minutes to London Waterloo, Botley station only 4 miles away taking 90 minutes to London Waterloo and Southampton international airport approximately 11 miles away. The M3 and M27 motorway networks are also within easy reach, providing access to the commercial centres of Winchester, Southampton and Portsmouth and the south coast.

Excellent schools, leisure and sporting activities nearby, including horse racing at Salisbury, Goodwood and Newbury, numerous Golf Clubs and more extensive shopping facilities and restaurants in the cathedral city of Winchester, Southampton and Portsmouth. Superb schooling including Winchester College, St Swithun’s, Prince’s Mead, Pilgrims, Twyford, Bedales and Churcher’s College and Portsmouth Grammar School.
