  • Freehold Detached House
  • Development Potential (Subject to Planning)
  • South Facing Garden with Views of South Downs

  • Guide Price of £350,000


The property comprises a large, detached house arranged across ground and first floors that was formerly the rangers cottage from the adjacent Chilcomb Firing Range. The ground floor (totalling approx. 794 sq ft*) comprises hallway, living room and kitchen. There was formerly a conservatory extending from the southern wall of the property, however this was removed in order to ensure security whilst the property has been vacant. The first floor includes four bedrooms and totals an estimated 475 sq ft*.

The house has not been used for approximately five years and has therefore fallen into disrepair. We anticipate that the property would therefore require full refurbishment. The property could also suit demolition and redevelopment into a single dwelling or multiple units (subject to obtaining the necessary consents).

The property sits on a large plot of 0.91 acres (0.37 hectares). The garden is currently overgrown but includes a large patio area to the south of the property which features wide ranging, uninterrupted, views over the South Downs National Park.

The property benefits from mains electricity supply and heating is via an oil boiler and tank system (a new tank has been installed in the recent past) Whilst there is a water supply to the property it is currently shared with the adjacent MoD firing range and will be disconnected before completion. A new independent supply will therefore need to be installed

*Please note floor areas are based on estimates from external measurements taken at the property and are therefore not to be relied upon.


The property is located in Chilcomb, a small hamlet approximately one mile to the East of Winchester and set within the South Downs National Park.

The property benefits from excellent road communications, with Chilcomb Lane providing access to the A31 and by extension the M3 National Motorway. Furthermore the amenities of Winchester are easily accessible.

The property is currently accessed by a small private road from Chilcombe Lane, however the purchaser will be required to create a new access direct from Chilcombe Lane. initial enquires have been made to the local highways authority to confirm the feasibility of this proposal, and our inspections on site appear to show an old point of access from Chilcomb Lane.

The property is situated to the north of Chilcomb Rifle Range, which is operated by the MoD. New fencing has been erected at the southern boundary of the property and new trees have been planted to the south of the subject property to add further separation from the range.
