Property Description

This executive detached residence has formed part of the Sopley Estate since 1868 when it was bought by the Kemp Welch family. The present house was built and occupied by Mr Hubert Kemp Welch at the beginning of the last century and was inherited by his nephew, Sir Simon Benton Jones in 1963. The house has been the subject of a sympathetic and comprehensive restoration programme in recent years. This has involved re-roofing the property, re-wiring, re-plumbing, the installation of a large conservatory, beautifully fitted kitchen, well appointed bathrooms with complete redecoration throughout. Great attention has been paid to the detail and to retaining the integrity of this lovely Edwardian family home. There is cornicing throughout, a staircase which would have originally used by the Servants of the house, 10 fireplaces as well as oil fired central heating with original cast iron radiators. The expansive accommodation of the property in brief comprises of large reception hall with grand central staircase, morning room, drawing room with feature log burner, dining room, kitchen/breakfast room with a range of appliances, large recently built conservatory, downstairs cloakroom, flower room, utility room and stairs to a cellar to the ground floor.
