An imaginative and very spacious individual detached home of great character and history standing close to the heart of the village. Steam Barn was originally a former steam engine barn but now provides a very interesting village home with light and spacious accommodation. The existing accommodation is very flexible and includes a large sitting / dining room with a wooden floor and an adjoining kitchen. The kitchen is fitted with range of cabinets, integrated dishwasher and Aga. There are three bedrooms to the first floor and a ground floor bathroom. The property now provides an incoming buyer with the opportunity to extend and alter (Ref:56497/001). The proposed plans will maximise light and space whilst retaining all of the inherent character of the original building and allow for the creation of larger windows with fine views towards the village and Church. The ground floor accommodation would be enhanced with an entrance hall and larger kitchen and cloakroom whilst retaining the very spacious sitting / dining room with large windows and door openings to either end. The plans to the first floor include a new master bedroom with a balcony and en suite shower room as well as a family bathroom. The overall plans would also allow for a central heating system to be installed. The existing and proposed layouts are shown on the attached floor plan.
The property occupies a mature location close to the heart of the active village of Lasham. Lasham stands amidst fine Hampshire countryside in-between the villages of Shalden, Bentworth and Herriard. The village has a public house, Church and gliding centre. The market town of Alton lies to the south east with options for access to the M3 to the north at Odiham or Basingstoke. Alton and Basingstoke collectively provide a wide range of facilities as well as mainline railway stations to London (Waterloo). The surrounding countryside provides ample opportunity for many country pursuits. Alton has a good range of High Street shops, public and independent schools, further education college, sports centre and outlying golf courses.
The barn is approached via a short section of shared driveway to a private area for parking and access to the garage. The garden is primarily to the rear of the barn and mainly laid to lawn with a paved terrace adjoining the sitting / dining room and providing an ideal space for outside entertaining. The garden is well screened from the lane by mature hedging. A pedestrian gate provides access from the rear to the village lane.
