Eastfield House is situated on the edge of Longparish, an unspoilt and very popular village set on the River Test, one of the country?s best-known chalk streams. The village, typical of the area, has a mixture of predominantly brick, flint, tiled and thatched cottages and houses.
This 6-bedroom, five bathroom Victorian house has been extended and refurbished to a very high standard to provide exceptionally light, airy and well appointed family accommodation with large rooms and high ceilings.
One of the property?s most striking features is the enormous, wood-framed conservatory, which extends to the length of the building on one side.
Outside, part of the garage block has been converted into a useful office annexe, including kitchen and a shower room, as well as garaging, while in front of the house, an impressive ornamental pond has been constructed with a central fountain to form a striking focal point. There are over five acres of land, comprising beautiful, well-kept gardens and a paddock.
Tim Sherston, partner in charge of the Country House Department at the handling estate agents, Dreweatt Neate, believes the property will appeal to a growing family: ?It has very good accommodation and a lot of grounds, and it is just ten minutes from an excellent co-educational prep school. This is a lovely family house in one of Hampshire?s best villages,? he said.
