A Hampshire estate with country house, period barn, cottages and 569 acres set in the South Downs National Park has come to the market through Savills.

The Hay Place Estate is on the southern edge of the popular village of Binsted and offers opportunity for development.

At the heart of the estate is an attractive, unlisted house with eight bedrooms and three bathrooms which provides flexible living accommodation with the potential to be extended and modernised, subject to the necessary consents. The gardens are quiet and private, with a kitchen garden, lawn sweeping around the house and a wooded path down into the hanger and the farmland. There is a swimming pool and a tennis court, both of which need to be brought back to a working condition. 

A range of Victorian agricultural buildings, also unlisted, is arranged in a courtyard and has permission to be converted into four residential units.  There are four further let cottages at the top of the drive that provide a useful income.

The farmland is predominantly arable, interspersed with pockets of woodland and pasture. The undulating topography of the estate lends itself to providing excellent sport. 

Geoffrey Jones of Savills farm agency team in Winchester, said: “The Hay Place Estate is a conveniently positioned and fertile estate which offers significant development opportunity. The estate is in a truly unspoilt position nestled in rolling countryside, while maintaining excellent communication links.”

The Hay Place Estate is being marketed by Savills for a guide price of £12.5million.
