The Location:

The private hamlet of Preshaw is a hidden gem historically recorded as one of the 'Four Jewels of Hampshire'. A classic privately-owned English estate of 1,200 acres, Preshaw is made up of parkland, woodland and rolling fields. The main house is Grade II listed and is surrounded by twenty-five properties that were developed in 1994 from former barns, stables and cottages that served the house. The estate lies within an area of outstanding natural beauty, with a long-distance footpath, The Monarch's Way, bordering the estate.

The Old Cowshed sits on the edge of the hamlet of Preshaw in the heart of the South Downs National Park and beautiful Meon Valley. Approached via a private mile-long tree-lined drive, this property forms part of a conversion from the original Preshaw Estate and is one of a small number of properties which have been imaginatively converted using reclaimed materials.

The Property:

A smart semi-detached house of generous proportions set in this uniquely tranquil location. This property has been lovingly maintained and boasts fantastic light and space. The ground floor is home to a wonderful double aspect sitting room which has oak flooring, a large brick-lined fireplace with wood burning stove and French doors that open into the garden. The kitchen/breakfast room, also with oak flooring, is fitted with a range of painted shaker style base and eye level units, integral oven, hob and fridge-freezer. There is a window to the front aspect and French doors that open into the garden. The kitchen is open to the dining room, a spacious area with ample room for a large table, chairs and a sofa. The first floor has a principle bedroom with en-suite, two further double bedrooms and a shower room. Outside, the property enjoys well-tended gardens, driveway parking and a single garage.
