This landmark property offers a unique opportunity for a purchaser to live in Georgian splendour whilst also occupying a superbly practical family home.


Internally, the rooms are of generous and typically Georgian proportions with high ceilings, ornate coving and cornices. The hallway is a particular feature with repeating archways forming an exquisite refinement. The downstairs reception rooms have large open fireplaces and in some places exposed timbers.


There is an extensive cellar, with three rooms, offering excellent potential for wine storage. Reception rooms include a drawing room with angular bay window, built in cabinetry and a feature fire place, a sitting room or study, and a significant dining room with a wonderful inglenook fire place. The hand built solid wooden farmhouse kitchen breakfast room creates a real “heart” to this home, with ample space for a busy family and keen cooks alike.


Continuing on the ground floor there is a secondary reception hall, with a staircase to a craft room/studio above. In addition on the ground floor there is a family room or study, utility/boot room and access to a Grade II Listed Barn in need of repair/refurbishment, which could be converted into a superb games room, annexe or home office. We believe planning permission has been granted (Ref: 17/00131/HOU) to make internal and external alterations and convert the attached timber storage barn for residential use. Enter the planning reference number at Hart DC planning portal to view the consent decision details.


Climbing the shallow, wide staircase, the north elevation has a full height window overlooking the garden and fields beyond.


Upstairs there are 5 generously proportioned bedrooms 4 double and 1 single all overlooking the countryside. There is one en-suite bathroom and shower, one en-suite shower and one family bathroom and shower. The master bedroom has a magnificent angular bay window giving lovely views.


Down Farmhouse is surrounded by open countryside views to the Southerly and Westerly flank and RAF Odiham is nearby to the North flank. The gardens include areas for entertaining and family fun including an outdoor swimming pool and large areas of lawn. There is also an extensive vegetable patch and a small orchard.


On the boundary, with a separate entrance, there is also a Grade II Listed detached Granary, which provides parking for two vehicles.

Down Farmhouse is surrounded by open countryside and Odiham is nearby with its historic Georgian High Street, weekly market and an excellent range of independent shops, eateries and other amenities such as clubs for tennis, cricket and bowls, and there is a doctor’s surgery, opticians and dentists.


Nearby Odiham and North Warnborough are steeped in history Held by King Harold since before the Norman invasion of 1066, North Warnborough and Odiham had already become a royal burgh by 1086. Perfectly positioned between Winchester and Windsor, the village’s location convinced those early royals to maintain a palace and lodgings in the locale.


By 1207, work began on King John’s castle in 20 acres of grounds of meadowland at North Warnborough. The ruins still stand by what’s now the Basingstoke Canal and are surrounded by a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI).


The property has excellent access to transport links with the mainline stations at Alton (10 minutes) and Hook (15 minutes) together with the M3, junction 5 being within a 10 minute drive providing fast access to the national motorway network as well as Heathrow. There is a mainline station at Winchfield with trains to London Waterloo (from 1 hr). The area is bestowed with excellent local schools, including Robert Mays, Long Sutton Primary and Buryfields (infants) and Daneshill, Lord Wandsworth, St Neots, Edgeborough House, Barfield and Alton.
