EQUESTRIAN - An intriguing Grade II listed country house of character comprising two former hop kilns and half of one of the largest barns in East Hampshire. With origins in the early 19th century the property was converted in 1989 into a family home. An unusual feature is the presence of both a rectangular and a circular oast within the same property. The latter features a circular family room with spiral staircase to a library above. From the second floor a bedroom has been created within the oast with round stained glass window in the ceiling. The overall accommodation which extends to 5516 sq.ft is extremely flexible with the option of a teenager flatlet to the second floor. The current owners have recently added a detached annexe.
