Easton, Hampshire SO21 1EE

Guide Price Of £1,150,000

An attached period village house dating from the 1780s, superbly renovated, beautifully presented, rich in character, lying on the edge of this very sought-after Itchen valley village in the South Downs National Park.

White Gates lies on the eastern edge of the village of Easton in the Itchen valley on the north eastern side of the Cathedral city of Winchester. Easton is lined with attractive period houses and cottages, has a church, two public houses, busy cricket club, village hall and garage. Easton boasts a thriving community with lots of clubs and activities for all ages. There is a local school in Itchen Abbas, the independent school Princes Mead about one mile away and several nurseries in the valley.

Surrounding the village is beautiful open countryside and the house looks directly south over farmland. There are very special walks along the banks of the River Itchen and through Avington Park. The proximity of Winchester and its many facilities are a particular attribute, especially the fast access to London either by road or rail with the mainline station to London Waterloo (journey time about 58 minutes). The M3 provides fast links northwards to the M25 motorway, the airports and central London or southwards to the M27 for the South Coast.

White Gates is a most attractive attached period village house dating from the 1780s, subsequently extended. It has mellow brick elevations under a slate and mineral felted roof.   From the white gated entrance, a paved path leads round to the front door and flagstone hall. There are three very good sized interconnecting reception rooms on the south side of the house.

In the centre is a charming beamed drawing room which has a fireplace and the original entrance vestibule now used for log storage.   At either end is a sitting room/playroom with wood burning stove, and a generous study with bespoke desk unit and shelving. Either room could be used as a formal dining room.    The kitchen/breakfast/dining room is of an excellent size, part of the room has a glazed roof which provides maximum light. The kitchen area is well fitted with bespoke hand painted country style units, granite work surfaces, Aga, island unit which has an iroko top and breakfast bar, and a very useful larder cupboard with slate cold shelves. Integrated appliances include twin Belfast sink, two ring ceramic hob, dishwasher, oven, wine store and there is space for an American style fridge freezer.   There are also two sets of French doors to the garden. The utility room has matching units and an iroko top and drainer. Under the stairs are two useful cupboards.   

On the first floor the long landing has exposed wall beams, window seat, a wardrobe cupboard and airing cupboard. There are four double bedrooms, the main bedroom has a vaulted ceiling, exposed timbers, fitted wardrobe cupboards and a fireplace with a Victorian grate. One other bedroom again has a vaulted roof with exposed timbers. All have views to the south over the adjoining fields and countryside.   At either end of the landing there is a bathroom and shower room, both very recently fitted.

The Gardens

There are very pretty mature mainly walled gardens which are incredibly private. There is a gravel parking area for two cars and double gates lead through to a wide stepping stone paved path which continues across the garden and round to the front door.

The gardens wrap around the house to the south, north and eastern sides, principally lawned, with flowering shrubs and trees including a fine silver birch. Growing up the front of the house are roses, clematis, honeysuckle and winter jasmine and under an old yew tree there is a useful L-shaped garden store/workshop.    There are well stocked shrub borders, espalier fruit trees and herb gardens.
