Property Description

Description
Kimpton Wood House is in a rural location, and is approached by a long lane from Kimpton village that ends at the drive. A spacious family house, of approximately 4,900 sq ft, it provides incredibly flexible accommodation over 3 floors. The house is currently configured to provide 8 bedrooms.
The second floor could be a self-contained flat, if required. The house, completed in 1990, was the home of the renowned racehorse trainer Toby Balding, best known for his outstanding success with National Hunt horses (including winning the
Grand National twice, Cheltenham Gold Cup and Champion Hurdle). The property is being offered for sale by his family, and has been redecorated inside and out. The Downs are still used for racehorse training and strings of racehorses on the gallops may be seen from the upper floors of the house. The accommodation is as shown on the floor plan, and is suited to both family living and entertaining, with a fine reception hall, and a superb kitchen/breakfast room opening onto a large conservatory which in turn can be opened to the impressive drawing room. The kitchen has a range of fitted storage cupboards, an Aga, island with further storage and a large Belfast sink. There is a fireplace at the breakfastend of the kitchen and the whole room is light and airy with
particularly high ceilings.The conservatory has a sprung wooden floor and provides picture window views across the garden. The drawing room is double aspect, has an open fireplace and built in bookshelves at one end with a French window to the garden at the other. Also on the ground floor is the study (formerly the dining room and currently with a shower, wash basin and w.c.); cloakroom; pantry and utility room. From the hall, stairs lead down to a large wine cellar. A turned staircase leads from the impressive entrance hall to a wide landing providing access to the principal bedrooms. On the first floor is the spacious main bedroom with its double en-suite (one providing a bath and one providing a shower and dressing room). As with bedrooms 2 and 3, the main bedroom has access to the balcony overlooking the garden. Three further bedrooms and bathroom complete the accommodation on this floor. On the second floor are 4 bedrooms, a bathroom, 2 dressing rooms and a large storage area which has the potential for further accommodation.

Outside
The house is approached from Downs Road by a short driveway leading to a gravelled turning and parking area. The gardens, with an additional access, are predominantly to the south of the house and include lawns, flowering and herbaceous borders and mature beech trees. There is also an apple orchard and a plot for growing fruit, vegetables and herbs. The swimming pool and pool house are screened from
the rest of the garden by mature yew hedging.
To one side of the house is a large studio/store: there are other useful stores within the grounds.

LOCATION
The property is to the west of the village of Kimpton which has a church, a public house with a local primary school nearby in the village of Thruxton. More comprehensive facilities can
be found in Andover (approximately 6 miles), Marlborough (approximately 17 miles) and the Cathedral Cities of Salisbury and Winchester (approximately 17 and 23 miles respectively).
The area is also very well served by transport with trains to London (Waterloo) from Andover and Grateley taking 70 and 80 minutes respectively.
