A very rare and special opportunity to purchase a village house set in one of Hampshire’s most delightful villages with distant rural views. The house has been occupied by the same farming family for nearly 100 years. The house dates from the late 1800’s and retains much of its original period charm with well-proportioned rooms, high ceilings, fire places in receptions rooms and bedrooms and large windows. The spacious reception rooms are complemented by a kitchen/breakfast room and several auxiliary rooms to the rear of the house. The garage was once the village butcher's shop and the utility room was originally a dairy, in keeping with the role of the farmhouse in the early part of the 1900’s. There are three well-proportioned bedrooms and a bathroom to the first floor, each with lovely rural views across the unspoilt surrounding countryside. This is a wonderful opportunity to acquire a family home in a most sought after village setting.
The house occupies an exceptional village location with distant farmland views. Upper Froyle is one of the most sought after villages in North East Hampshire, located between Farnham and Alton. Froyle enjoys an active community life with two public houses, historic church and village hall. The thriving market town of Alton benefits from a good range of shops, secondary schools, 6th form college, sports centre and mainline railway station to London Waterloo. There are local primary schools in the neighbouring villages of Holybourne and Bentley, which also has a mainline railway station to London Waterloo. The surrounding countryside is well known for its outstanding natural beauty, offering many opportunities for walking and riding.
The garden is a very special feature of the house and provides a lovely rural setting with unrivalled views over the adjoining fields and farmland. There are wide open expanses of lawn to the front and rear with a generous gravel drive leading to a range of extensive outbuildings, including stables and a workshop. The secluded rear garden is very private with well-stocked flower borders and uninterrupted views across unspoilt countryside.
There is an additional adjoining orchard of about 0.634 acres (0.257 ha) that has been rented from the Froyle Estate for nearly 100 years on an annual licence and we have been informed that this arrangement could continue for a potential purchaser, subject to agreement with the estate.
