An individual detached bungalow occupying a stunning rural location with distant views together with grounds of about 4.5 acres. The property was originally constructed as a Woolaway Bungalow and has a flexible layout with kitchen/dining room, sitting room with a multi-fuel stove and back boiler (for hot water and the radiator in the porch), 3 bedrooms, bathroom and WC. The property is subject to an Agricultural Occupancy Restriction. As a consequence, the original planning notice dated January 1968, requires that 'the occupier of the dwelling shall be a person employed or last employed in agriculture defined by section 221(1) of the Town and Country Planning Act 1962, or in forestry, or the dependant of such a person.' A copy of the planning notice is available upon request. Importantly, potential purchasers should check that their mortgage provider (if required) would be willing to extend a loan for this type of property. Overall, the property provides a rare opportunity to purchase a flexible rural home with beautiful views.
The property occupies an exceptional rural setting about a mile to the east of the village of Selborne with long views over the adjoining undulating countryside. The active village of Selborne stands amidst fine Hampshire countryside with a public house, shops, church and primary school. The village is also renowned for its association with Gilbert White, the 18th Century naturalist and is surrounded by scenery of outstanding natural beauty lying at the foot of the beech covered hanger within the South Downs National Park. The larger centres of Liss and Alton collectively provide a range of facilities as well as mainline railway stations to London Waterloo. In addition, the A3 can be accessed at Liss and offers a route to London and the south coast.
The property is approached via a driveway providing access to the garage and parking. The bungalow is surrounded by an area of garden mainly laid to grass. Beyond the immediate garden there are two agricultural fields. The field to the north and east extends to about 2.9 acres whilst the field to west extends to about 1.1 acres. Both fields have been offered for let for grazing in the past. There are individual gate entrances to each field from Honey Lane.
