    An excellent opportunity to acquire this substantial, historic Grade II* listed English house with late 17th century origins. Since its original construction c.1690 The Amport Firs has remained within single family ownership but is now offered to the market for the first time in over 300 years. The main views from the house are westerly across the adjoining historic park and extend over two thirds of a mile. In addition the property enjoys a tranquil and private setting in gardens of around three acres. Currently divided into eight separate rental properties there is huge scope for improvement subject to obtaining the relevant consents to return The Firs to a glorious home.

    Full Details


    The property is currently divided into eight properties, all on separate freeholds. The main house consists of the ground and first floor when looking at the covering photograph and includes four reception rooms, kitchen, four bedrooms and a small bathroom. Flat three occupies the upper floor of the main house and is accessed from the original entrance which is at the side. There is an unused doorway from the main house to the stairs of flat three.

    The main house enjoys the majority of the gardens with the exception of the courtyard and rear parking, which is used by the flats.

    The property is divided as follows:

    FLAT ONE : 1 bedroom apartment, (ground floor)

    FLAT TWO: 1 bedroom apartment ( first floor)

    FLAT THREE: 2 bedroom apartment (second floor above main house)

    FLAT FOUR: 1 bedroom apartment (first floor)

    FLAT FIVE: 1 bedroom apartment (ground floor)

    ROOKERY NOOK : 1 bedroom apartment (second floor)

    MEAUX CORNER: 2 bedroom house

    THE FIRS : 4 bedrooms, 4 receptions

    Rental income is approximately £5000 per month and the property is fully managed by Bournes.

    Various outbuildings including former stables, brick sheds and large greenhouse.


    Until relatively recently, the property was for the best part of its life a single family home with accommodation for servants. In order to return it to such a planning application will be required to be submitted to Test Valley Borough Council. This could of course include all of the property or in part.

    Due to the historic nature of the property and the three associated listed build entries, we strongly recommend that professional opinions are sought from listed buildings specialists and architects before proceeding.
