A beautifully appointed and spacious individual detached family house occupying an established and convenient location within half a mile of the picturesque village of Chawton and about a mile from Alton High Street. The house, built in around 1932, retains all of the character of a building of this period with well-proportioned rooms with high ceilings and large windows creating a light and airy atmosphere throughout. The generous and versatile living accommodation includes a family room and study to the front of the house; to the rear a sitting room with a central fireplace opens out via double doors to a conservatory. The conservatory is ideally positioned to the rear of the house and provides a natural link between the kitchen, sitting room and garden. The accommodation is beautifully complemented by a kitchen/dining room also with double doors out to the garden and a gas fired dual plate Aga. There is also a separate utility room and ground floor cloakroom. The first floor accommodation includes four spacious bedrooms and a family bathroom. Of note, the large principal bedroom has the benefit of an en-suite bathroom and dressing area. This is a very appealing and flexible individual family home standing in a lovely garden of about a third of an acre.
The house occupies a very convenient location for both Alton and the attractive village of Chawton. There are a range of facilities within the locality, including the Butts Primary School, Sports Centre and Bowls Club. The historic market town of Alton has a good range of high street shops, weekly and specialist markets, schools for all ages including a Further Education College, Alton Convent and two outlying golf courses. Chawton is renowned for its long association with Jane Austen and has an active community with a thriving cricket club, church, Primary School, public house, coffee shop, Jane Austen’s former house and the Chawton House library museum.
The house stands within established landscaped grounds providing a beautiful and secluded setting with areas of lawn together with well stocked flower and shrub borders and a variety of young and mature trees. The house stands more or less centrally within its own mature grounds and is well screened from the road with an extensive area of parking to the front. A paved terrace adjoins the kitchen/breakfast room and conservatory and provides an ideal outside seating area. There are a variety of areas of interest, including an additional paved terrace towards the rear of the garden with brick built barbecue, providing a further outside entertaining area. Workshop.
