POSSIBLY THE MOST SIGNIFICANT COUNTRY HOME INSOUTHERN HAMPSHIRE THIS YEAR.
Golden Hill in Romsey, Hampshire has to be one of the most eye catching countryhomes to be built in recent years with many unique features. It has even come to the attention of TV, Radio, local and National Press.
This exemplary residence is the crowning jewel for local Developers A&B Homes and emulates their reputation for building superior quality homes. With a guide price of £7.5m the discerning purchaser will be able to create the all important, bespoke finishing touches to the interior design.
This brand new substantial country home is set within 11 acres of grounds with the focal point being the 100 metre long lake overflowing onto a water wheel within a lower pond. A notable feature is the two storey summer house overlooking the lake with the lower floor having spectacular aquarium glazing. The beautiful grounds will also benefit from six ponds, two fountains and has a footpath leading all the way to‘The Old Romsey Canal’ at the bottom of the garden.
The house and outbuildings amount to approximately 22,000 square feet of internal floor area including 10 bedrooms, (1,500 sq ft master bedroom suite with a unique optional automated private access straight down to the indoor swimming pool) 7 kitchens, 17 bath/shower rooms and 14 reception rooms. The double height ballroom with its vaulted ceiling and extensive terrace overlooking the grounds provide the most wonderful space to host a party.
Recreational facilities include a tennis court, a 52 ft long outdoor swimming pool and the luxurious indoor 52 ft long overflow swimming pool. This provides space for serious length swimming with steps leading up from the side of the pool into a large spa. There is a separate sauna and steam room and for Golf enthusiast’s there is an optional 225 yard Par 3 golf hole to practice on. Be careful though as you wouldn’t want to lose your golf balls in the lake.
The house also includes a gym and billiards room with a bespoke bar. The cinema/conference room is truly impressive and has comfortable recliner seats for up to 34 guests.
The grounds are approached through automatic gates which lead to the sweeping drive and a detached triple garage (with a separate entrance to the 2 bedroom staff apartment above). There is also the option of underground car parking for 10 cars with direct access into the house.
For those who are security conscious A&B Homes have thought of everything including a nuclear shelter/panic room with sleeping quarters, kitchen and bathroom within 3ft thick concrete walls, ‘grade 9 bank vault doors’ and access to a secret underground tunnel.
