The Olde Coach House

  Set within the Old Bedhampton conservation area on the south coast near Hayling Island & Havant, (mainline station to London & Portsmouth), The Olde Coach House is a Neo Georgian newbuild property with level B on both energy graphs & many energy saving features installed, leaving the outside as characteristic of its beautiful natural & historic surroundings, the interior is a mix of modern technology with Georgian features!  




















Rebuilt in 2013 after the original Olde Coach House caught fire in 2009, it has been rebuilt to strict guidelines set by Havant Council because of the nature of the surroundings & the historic link to poet John Keats! John Keats had a known “Hampshire hideaway” & penned many of his famous poems including “The Eve Of St Agnes” in the Old Mill House!  The Olde Coach House is set within the private estate of The Old Mill House, a small lane with only 5 houses, The Old Granary, Bridge House & at the end tucked away is The Olde Mill House, The Barn & The Olde Coach House!  You can understand why Keats found so much inspiration at the house & spent his last night on English soil at The Mill House before leaving from Portsmouth in 1819.  He died abroad & never set foot back in England again.  His “mark” is here with the serene scene you see from the bedroom windows of the Mill Pond, the 36ft London Plain tree, the oldest in Hampshire we are led to believe!  Its trunk has actually grown around an old 18th Century metal gate, most of it clearly visible sticking out from the huge tree in the gravel driveway, a natural source of mineral water which flows through the estate through Hermitage Stream & falls down into the sea via a waterfall where once a large working wheel stood.
























  The sea flows in through & around the rear of The Old Mill House, the sound of running water is a beautiful thing to behold in the peace of night!  Horses share fields at the rear! The Mill Pond has much “wildlife” including ducks of a few different species, Swans & even Kingfishers have also been filmed here & enjoy the quiet spot, rabbits & foxes in abundance & the odd ferret!

Freehold & having unrestricted access to the extensive gravel driveway that is part of the Old Mill House to access the rear double garage with loft room above for ample storage.

















The Olde Coach House has been designed with an open plan downstairs, (but has adequate strength to be divided up should new owners wish), underfloor heating throughout the ground floor with 4 zone controls, solid hand made Georgian sash windows, double solid oak doors lead to the spacious kitchen, black granite worktops & oak cupboards with soft closure doors throughout, an instant boiling water tap (no need for a kettle), a grand local hand-made oak staircase ascends to the top floor which is thermostate central heating controlled on the landing.  5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms & a huge loft with 10.8 ft clearance, can be divided into either 2 or 3 more rooms!  Would suit a family or even someone who would wish to run a small business from home!  

















Fully integrated alarm & CCTV, ample sockets plus T.V. & phone sockets in every room!  No expense has been spared in our budget to give the house internally & externally a very desireable & luxurious look!  Showers have both type shower heads for normal or “waterfall” ( lovely feeling standing under one :o)....bathroom tiles have been chosen with different themes & were top of the range, as were the black sparkly granite floor tiles.  Carpets to the stairs & bedrooms have been laid & protected.  A log burning fire is being installed & all attemps are being made to keep the house new!















Outside there is ample parking for large & small vehicles both to front entrance & rear garage & driveway.  There is still some finishing work to complete!  The garage & rear driveway need finishing & wrought iron metal gates are being added to front entrance & driveway!  Interior being finished off but we moved back in here January 2014 having owned the property since 1996 and are finishing off where the budget allows!  

The house will come with a full 10 year  N.H.B.C. Certificate when complete, finishing quickly will depend on budget or an early deposit will guarantee works completed in accordance with buyers instructions.

All transactions & legal questions can be answered through our family solicitors, any other approaches can be made via our website where appointments will be made after necessary solicitors checks.
