Bygones, Hulbert Road, Bedhampton

There’s an old saying that we should let bygones be bygones.
But that doesn’t apply in Hulbert Road, Bedhampton, where a property called Bygones could actually represent the future for your family.

Bygones is the larger of four individually designed and built modern homes but its link with the past could quite easily be the size of its plot, which is highly unusual by current standards.
In addition to the deep frontage and private driveway approaching the sideways-set double garage there is also a rear garden measuring almost 100ft in length featuring maturing trees, a circular terrace with raised border at the centre of the lawn, and a terrace across the rear accessed from French windows in both the sitting and kitchen / breakfast rooms.
‘The property makes a really comfortable family home as well as a very practical one,’ says Colin Shairp, of Fine and Country Southern Hampshire.
‘The extremely generous living space is well planned so that it can be combined via the central hallway, thanks to double doors that give access to both the sitting and dining rooms. There is also a door into kitchen / breakfast room which is more than 22ft long and of course the terrace across the rear allows a further connection, perfect for entertaining on warm summer days.

‘At the front of the house there’s a separate study so while Bygones has easy access to commuting routes on the nearby A3M or via train at Havant or Bedhampton it’s also easy to create space to work from home, which many now few as a better solution at least on two or three days a week.
‘Upstairs there are five bedrooms. In addition to the family bathroom, the second and master bedrooms have en-suite shower rooms – the master also has a superb range of fitted wardrobes along one wall.’
