Harcombe House is situated in the centre of its beautifully landscaped gardens and grounds, just outside the village of Ropley. It is a striking red brick building with a distinctive Dutch gable fronted elevation. This side of the house faces west, offering far-reaching views over the Hampshire countryside from the principal reception rooms and bedrooms.

The house, which is believed to date from the early 1900s, has been extensively redecorated and modernised by the current owners, over the past few years. It now provides a perfect combination of formal reception rooms and ideal family accommodation which flows well around the house. Particularly impressive rooms include the spectacular conservatory, which leads off the sitting room, with all sides opening out on to the paved terrace to the rear of the house.

There is also a well-equipped, modern family kitchen with dining and sitting areas with doors to the outside. Also of note is the superb indoor swimming pool, accessed by an enclosed link from the house, with a sauna, steam room and folding doors out on to a large terrace, perfect for entertaining. There is also a separate entertainment room with an overhead projector system.
