A rare opportunity to purchase a spacious chalet style house in a delightful, secluded, rural location, set amidst fine Hampshire countryside, in grounds of about half an acre. The property has flexible and highly adaptable accommodation arranged over two floors. The comfortable and homely feel is apparent as soon as you enter the spacious entrance hall. The sitting room overlooks the rear garden and also features a fireplace with a wood burning stove. The kitchen / dining room forms the heart of the house with double doors opening into the sitting room. A large, useful utility and store room is accessed off the kitchen with entrances from the front drive and the rear garden. The ground floor accommodation has the potential to meet a variety of needs, with a bathroom and two further rooms that could be bedrooms or study / reception rooms. There are three more bedrooms and a very stylish family bath / shower room to the first floor. Of note, the current owners have also created a bespoke detached home office in the garden with a wood burning stove, which has the potential for a wide variety of other uses. This is a very flexible, individual, rural home with scope and potential to extend or remodel further (subject to any necessary consents).
Monkwood is surrounded by some of the most beautiful parts of the Hampshire countryside and borders the South Downs National Park. The hamlet is situated to the south of Alton and the north east of Winchester in-between the villages of Colemore, West Tisted and Ropley. The market town of Alresford is about five and a half miles and provides a good range of day to day facilities. There are a selection of local pubs in the area together with a number of good schools and colleges, including Winchester College, St Swithun's, Perins School, Bedales and Alton College. There are also good road and rail links (from Winchester, Petersfield and Alton) providing access to London Waterloo in about an hour.
The grounds are a real feature of the property and provide an ideal setting. The property is approached via a wide gravel drive which provides ample parking and turning space for several vehicles. The gardens extend in all to about 0.51 of an acre and enjoy a southerly aspect to the rear. The wide lawn is bordered by mature trees and shrubs with a patio adjoining the rear of the house. There is also useful vehicular access to the rear garden and former garages.
