“I’m bored!” is the child’s lament that plagues many parents but it shouldn’t be heard too frequently at a fantastic property for sale in Heckfield.There’s no time to get bored at this house.

Winchfield Lodge has a games room indoors, a children’s play area outside, a boule pit, orchard, and paddock in which to let off steam.

And if the children tire of all this, they will soon rekindle their enthusiasm when you suggest it’s time to harvest the gooseberry, raspberry, blueberry, and currant bushes. Maybe climbing the plum, pear, apple, damson, and oak trees will be more interesting, though.


Not that you should get the idea Winchfield Lodge is purely to amuse the children. After all, there are good schools nearby to send them off to, especially if you want to use the indoor office to avoid commuting although Heckfield, close to Hook, does have excellent links to the M3 and M4 as well as mainline trains at Reading and Basingstoke.

There are three principal reception rooms in addition to the office and games room and, when the kids come in dirty from a day’s play, there’s also the convenience of a ground floor shower room which is adjacent to the ground floor fifth bedroom.

There is also a superbly equipped kitchen / breakfast room that makes the perfect heart for the home. It includes a range cooker for that traditional British country kitchen feel, a built-in wine cooler for those Continental lunches, and space for an American-style fridge / freezer.


The first floor has a central landing with a large, walk-in airing cupboard. The master bedroom has an en-suite with a double shower cubicle while the other three bedrooms have built-in wardrobes as well as access to eaves storage in two of them. The family bathroom has a stylish corner bath.
