A wonderful family home set in glorious mature gardens and grounds complete with a swimming pool and double-bank fishing on the River Itchen.
This delightful family home is located on the edge of the sought after Hampshire village of Twyford with its gardens and grounds running down to the River Itchen with dual bank fishing. Once through a set of wooden electric gates, the gravel driveway leads to the front of the house with plenty of room for parking several cars. The property offers in excess of 6800 sq ft of flexible accommodation including a bespoke 2-bedroom annexe or secondary accommodation with its own private access and separate underfloor heating. At the heart of this home is the exquisite large kitchen with plenty of worktop/preparation space and a wealth of storage in the form of grey fitted cupboards and shelving. There is a large 4 oven gas Aga and integrated Miele appliances, a large central island complete with induction hob and a dining area at the far end for entertaining with French doors leading onto a terrace overlooking the gardens and grounds. Adjacent to the kitchen is the family/play room also with French doors to the terrace and door through to a rear hallway accessing guest accommodation/annexe providing two bedrooms, one with an ensuite shower, bathroom, utility and door to the outside.Great entertaining space is on offer with five large receptions rooms, four of them flowing via charming double doors into each other. The drawing room, sitting room and dining room all have high ceilings and large bay windows creating lovely light rooms with the benefit of French doors out to the garden from the drawing room. There is also a cloakroom and stairs from the rear hallway down to the cellar. Ascending to the first floor there are five double bedrooms including the master suite, which is stunning in its own right with an en suite bathroom, walk in dressing room and doors out onto a balcony with lovely views of the garden. There are two family bathrooms servicing the remaining bedrooms and on the top floor there are two further bedrooms, a cloakroom and a generous loft space.
The generous garden and grounds are truly magnificent to behold with a large manicured lawn extending down to the river with numerous mature flowerbeds complete with specimen shrubs, mature trees and fruit orchard. There is a large paved terrace extending from the drawing room around to raised decking outside the kitchen and family room. There is also an outdoor pool which is heated by solar panels and gas, a barn, several garages and offices. The latter of which offers potential we believe to create secondary accommodation subject to planning permission.Undoubtedly, for a keen angler Hockley House represents a unique opportunity, with dual bank fishing on the River Itchen one could easily spend many a day casting for their big catch.
