A beautiful Grade II Listed Georgian house including several outbuildings, requiring updating, set in delightful garden and grounds with a river frontage, close to the Solent.

PROPERTY Willowbank is a quintessentially attractive, Grade II Listed Georgian family house offering scope for modernisation and improvement, with mellow brick facing elevations and sash windows, beneath a pitched, tiled roof. The house has a versatile layout and is extensively arranged over three floors with the principal, well proportioned rooms enjoying a lovely outlook to the rear across the delightful walled, formal garden and grounds. In addition to the main house there is a private cobbled courtyard with vehicular access and an adjacent former coach house - currently used for storage and garaging - with a hayloft above with potential for conversion, subject to change of use and the appropriate listed building and planning consents.

Having had three previous owners over the past 116 years, the house has a significant naval heritage with former owners including a First Sea Lord in the 1960's and most recently, the Commander of the Royal Yacht Britannia. The house is being introduced to the market for the first time in over 54 years and offers great scope for a family to modernise to their 21st century needs and to make a lifetime family home.

OUTSIDE The formal garden and grounds are situated to the rear of the property, accessed from the front through private gates via a cobbled courtyard and are predominantly walled with an elegant, large glasshouse. A large expanse of formal lawn interspersed with pathways leads to a further outer garden area with orchard, fruit cage, former vegetable garden and direct access to the River Meon beyond. In all, the garden and grounds extend to about 0.7 of an acre (0.29 Ha).

The Old Coach House provides garaging access to the street with storage and hayloft above. There is a further garage, approached through double doors and various other outside stores.

LOCATION The property is located in the attractive, historic village of Titchfield which dates back to the 6th Century, housing an eclectic mix of delightful independent shops, coffee shops, a butcher, public houses, a Church and numerous garden centres. There are an excellent range of educational facilities locally including West Hill Park School, Boundary Oak School and grammar schools in Southampton and Portsmouth. Titchfield is located close to the sailing meccas of the River Hamble, Gosport and Portsmouth, which in turn offer access to the sailing waters of the Solent. The village is strategically well placed between the larger cities of Portsmouth, Winchester and Southampton with easy access to the M27 linking to London via the M3. Hill Head is also within 3 miles with its coastal beach, nature reserve and views over the Solent.
