Amongst other features is an extremely impressive entrance hall with wide central staircase from which the large picture window at the top can be seen, hinting at the views beyond. The large games room on the first floor is another welcome surprise and all the principal rooms have wonderful outlooks. There are two separate self-contained annexes (one of which can be incorporated into the main house, if desired) and a variety of store rooms and garages, as well as a useful cellar.


The gardens are an absolute delight, dropping away from the house and gently undulating to give superb views. There are more formal areas with various lawns, rare Plants and trees, as well as wilder areas of parkland, heath and woodland. There is also a well stocked cottage garden to the front of the house.

The house is accessed from a private road which serves only a handful of properties. There are two separate gates providing access to different parts of the grounds, the first of which is the main entrance. The drive sweeps past the garage block, with an annexe above and various store rooms, to the front of the house and then continues beyond into the grounds.

Directions
From Winchester take the M3 heading south towards Southampton. At junction 14 follow the signs to the A33 and on reaching the roundabout with the A27 take the third exit on the A27 heading towards Chilworth. Continue on the A27 and take the 8th road on your left into Manor Road. Continue onto Chilworth Drove and turn right to stay onto Chilworth Drove. The property will be found towards the end of the road on the left hand side.

Location
Chilworth Drove is situated in the highly regarded village of Chilworth, close to Southampton and the New Forest. The restricted development within the village and the proximity to the city as well as to Southampton internation airport, and excellent road llinks with the M3 aned M27 close by, has lead to the village becoming particularly affluent over the years. The newer part of the village consists of mainly large detached properties, and Chilworth Old Village consists of attractive period cottages. There is a village hall, village green and a pub called the Chilworth Arms.

A wider range of facilities can be found in nearby Soutampton which has all of the facilities one could hope for from a modern thriving city.
