This home was one of just four properties built for former military officers after the First World War - and now it could belong to you.

Echo Barn, in Wrecclesham, dates back to 1939 and was specifically constructed for retiring high ranking military officers who had served in World War I.

The property, which has been refurbished and remodelled, is nearly 4,000 square feet, and sits in more than an acre of grounds.

The central hub of the home is the living area, which is made up of a kitchen with a central island, a dining area and a snug with a log-burning stove.

Also on the ground floor is the formal lounge with a feature open fire, and a second reception room, which could be used as a study or a playroom.

Upstairs, the first floor has a spacious landing area leading to five double bedrooms, two with en-suites, and a family bathroom, while the second floor has another room which could be used as a sleeping area, an office or a cinema room.

The grounds, described as a “particularly attractive” feature of the property, include a large lawn with mature trees, a rear garden with fruit trees, a pergola, and a patio.

There is also a gravel driveway with a turning circle, and a double garage with additional workshop space.

Echo Barn is on the market with Burns & Webber for offers over £2,250,000.

Rupert Provest, Prime Associate at Burns & Webber, commented: “Echo Barn is a substantial period home, with generous accommodation approaching 4,000 square feet.

“It has been extensively refurbished with outstanding contemporary interiors while maintaining much of the original charm and character it was built with.”
