An individual and spacious detached family house with generous accommodation and long views over open countryside. The house is believed to date from the 17th Century and complements the history and character of the local area with elevations of brick and flint. The farmhouse is now in need of updating but still retains much of the character of the period with exposed beams and inglenook fireplaces in the sitting room and dining room. The generous and flexible accommodation is larger than first anticipated and each of the principal reception rooms have the benefit of a dual aspect. The further ground accommodation includes a kitchen/breakfast room, family room and study. There are four bedrooms to the first floor and two bathrooms. The house stands within a very attractive and appealing location with fine views over the adjoining paddocks and nearby farmland.
The house occupies a tranquil rural location about 1 mile to the south west of the village of Farringdon with distant views over the surrounding countryside. Lord’s Wood is not far from the house with footpaths and Bridleways leading onto the Hangers Way and St Swithun’s Way walks. The woodlands are a mass of Bluebells during the Spring months.
Much of the appeal of the popular village of Farringdon is its location at the head of Meon Valley, amidst fine Hampshire countryside within the South Downs National Park in-between the villages of Chawton, Newton Valance and East Tisted. The village has an active community and together with Upper Farringdon has two public houses, hall and church. The village of Chawton, renowned for its association with Jane Austen, has a primary school and public house. The popular Bowtells Farm Shop is in the neighbouring village of East Tisted along with a Post Office and store. The market town of Alton provides a good range of individual shops including Waitrose, Sansbury's and M&S Simply Food together with weekly markets, cinema, sports centre, two secondary schools, 6th form college and station to London Waterloo.
The garden is mainly laid to lawn with a variety of young and mature trees and a covered natural well. To the rear of the property there is a timber shed. Oil tank. The house is approached via a five bar gate and a shingle driveway providing ample parking and access to the front. Please note that there is currently no marked boundary between Kitcombe Farmhouse and Kitcombe Farmhouse Cottage. A copy of the title plan is available to view.
