Meon House is a beautiful Grade II listed Georgian house set in the village of Droxford, surrounded by glorious open countryside. The village has 2 good pubs, one awarded Hampshire's 'Best Sunday lunch', the other serving a mean curry. There are endless walks to chose from, from the door. We have a village playground and a village shop. There is a tennis court in the next door village which we have a key to. There are many bike trails from the door, including the famous (flat!) Meon Valley Trail, a disused railway line, perfect for a family bike ride. There are many other pubs within a short walk/bike/drive, which we can advise you on.
We have lovingly restored our house to create a fabulous comfortable family home. There are 5 bedrooms, and attractive flower-filled garden with climbing frame, outside dining, BBQ, and a great view through the village. We have a circular stair case in our entrance hall with a curved staircase leading up to the first floor. There are wooden floors and sash wooden framed windows, most of which have original shutters.
Downstairs we have a drawing room, with has double aspect windows, high ceilings and a fireplace with wood burning stove; a massive playroom (Wii, large selection of toys); and a large eat in kitchen/breakfast room. The kitchen has granite worktops, a 4 oven Aga (normally turned off in the summer as its too hot!), an alternative convection oven and 4 pan induction hob, in the island. Off the kitchen lies a boot room, with a side door out to the garden, and a door leads through into a utility room with an extra fridge and freezer.. In addition there is a laundry room and a downstairs cloakroom.
On the first floor there are five bedrooms. The master bedroom (king sized bed) has double aspect sash windows with picturesque rural views. There are two further double beds: one kingsize and one double. There is one room with twin beds, and one with a single bed. All rooms have a lot of space and there is room in each for additional mattresses on the floor. We have some spare mattresses, an inflatable bed, and a travel cot available, if you would like to borrow them for extra guests.
We have a family bathroom (bath with shower head) and a newly fitted shower room, both with toilets and sinks. None of the bathrooms are ensuite.
There is a parking area accessed off Mill Lane, with external parking for 2 cars. Additional parking is also available in the village.
Our house is a family home and as such has most things you would expect. You are welcome to play with our toys and play with our sandpit. The kitchen is well equipped with dishwasher, 2 fridges, a chest freezer, a Quooker hot tap, microwave, kitchenaid, breadmaker, etc.
We can provide a travel cot and high chair, and we have plastic tablecloths, bowls and cutlery for babies. We have 3 young kids so we are pretty well set up for families.
