A very appealing individual home with spacious and versatile accommodation standing in a tranquil rural location in grounds of about 1.7 acres with long views. The property has been enlarged with skill and now takes full advantage of the predominately south aspect to the rear with bright and well-proportioned accommodation. Of note, each of the reception rooms, kitchen and principal bedroom open out to the garden. The sitting room has wall-to-wall folding doors and enjoys a wonderful view out to the garden. The kitchen has a partly glazed roof and is set around an island with a full range of cabinets, six ring gas Britannia range with extractor hood over, microwave, American style refrigerator, wine fridge and granite work surfaces. The further flexible accommodation includes three double bedrooms including an en-suite wet room to the principal bedroom and a separate Jack and Jill bathroom with a Jacuzzi bath. The accommodation could be enlarged further with confirmation received from the planning authority that part of roof space could be converted to create two additional bedrooms and a bathroom - plans are available for inspection. The house was also designed to maximise energy use and has the benefit of a ground source heat pump providing under floor heating which together with double glazed windows has created a very efficient rural home.
The property occupies a tranquil location off a small rural lane. Bentworth is set amidst fine rolling Hampshire countryside and has a strong and active community with two public houses, church, hall and highly regarded primary school. The surrounding countryside provides amply opportunity for many country pursuits. The market towns of Alton and Alresford together with the regional centres of Basingstoke and Winchester provide a comprehensive range of facilities as well as a mainline railway stations to London Waterloo.
The grounds are a very special feature of the property and are currently arranged with an area of lawn and a small orchard together with a paddock. The property is approached via an in and out shingle driveway providing ample parking and access to the front. A further separate driveway provides access to the barn/garage. This could be utilised as a garage / workshop or divided to create loose boxes. There is a broad stone paved terrace extending to the full width of the rear of the property providing an ideal outside entertaining area and a fine outlook over the garden to the countryside beyond.
