Agents Comments

"It is difficult to find a period house in Romsey with lovely views and gardens. April House enjoys both."

Introduction

April house requires modernization but could be restored to its former glory to create a lovely spacious family home with a south facing rear garden. Although still within walking distance of Romsey centre it also benefits from a rural feel with the most impressive backdrop of open farmland to woodland in the distance. There is ample parking and seclusion from the Belbins road with potential for further extension subject to the usual planning consents.

Description

A stone porch and front door opens to the traditional style hallway which accesses all the principal rooms as well as the under stairs cupboard and the downstairs cloak room. The kitchen is fitted in a range of wooden wall and base units with roll edge worktops and via an open plan archway accesses further cabinets, sink, dishwasher and washing machine with a door accessing the covered car port. Within the kitchen is a traditional cooking range as well as a more conventional ceramic hob and double oven. The sitting room features sliding patio doors to enjoy the extensive view and is centred around a stone fireplace with inset electric fire. Adjacent is the family room which also takes advantage of the delightful vista via sliding doors and hosts an open fire with marble hearth and timber surround. The dining room / study is also of good proportions and dual in aspect.

On the first floor is a spacious and bright landing with airing cupboard. There are four well sized bedrooms, three of which are served by the family bathroom with shower over the bath. The master bedroom enjoys the elevated views and benefits from an ensuite shower room.

Outside

The property is screened by mature evergreen hedgerow and a five bar gate opens to a gravel driveway which fronts the house and leads to the carport and garage to the side. There is a good size front garden, predominantly lawned and studded with two mature trees and flanked by pretty herbaceous borders. Accessible from both sides of the house, the rear garden is a true delight of the property being south westerly facing and of good size with stunning far reaching farmland views to the rear. Predominately lawned with pretty flower borders the garden provides a high degree of privacy and seclusion and a paved terrace spans the back of the house accessed via twin sets of patio doors. There is a greenhouse and timber store requiring repair with a pond and storage area.

Location

Situated within close proximity to commuter links such as the M27 and A36, Romsey lies on the east bank of the River Test at the lower end of the Test Valley, with the New Forest to the South West, the ancient city of Winchester to the East and the major city and port of Southampton to the South. Romsey retains its regular street market as well as a thriving town centre with shops, restaurants, public houses, leisure facilities and historical sites including Broadlands House. At the centre of Romsey is the market place, town hall and the stunning Abbey.

Agents Notes

The property is served by oil fired central heating and private drainage. It has been double glazed, the majority of which was in 2015.
