Wickham boasts the second largest medieval market square in England and is at the heart of this thriving and affluent Hampshire village. The Village is located in the rolling countryside of The Meon Valley, but well positioned for visitors to Portsmouth, Winchester, The South Downs & Southampton. The Village was a Roman military post and Saxon settlement and noted in the Royal Charter of 826. Today the area has a wealth of independent shops, teas rooms and restaurants and is the start of the Meon Valley Trail, a nine-mile path on the old Meon Valley Railway Line. The area is also host to the popular Wickham Music Festival as well as many other local events. The location works well as a base for a number of major local attractions. It is situated approx. three miles from Fareham, 16 miles from Winchester and 9 miles from Portsmouth. The property is a beautiful early Georgian house built around 1715 and is grade II listed with a wealth of preserved architectural features. It sits elegantly in The Square and is one of the finest buildings in the area. The property offers a combination of elegant private rooms with en-suite facilities as well as good quality communal bar and residents' rooms, with large dining room and orangery leading onto the walled garden. The current owners have also spent considerable money on some of the fittings and fixtures, including a fully fitted new commercial kitchen. The ground floor has a reception/lounge area, meeting room/function space, often used by local businesses and group meetings. There is a further lounge, bar and dining areas at ground floor, complimented by the ancillary offices, cellar and kitchen. The property provides nine rooms with bathroom facilities arranged over the two upper floors of the main building. There is a separate detached building at the bottom of the walled garden providing a further four en-suite modern rooms. This building has scope for sub-division to family apartments or other uses like residential, subject to any necessary consents. The site has off road parking for at least four cars.
