A truly unique detached family house standing in a very rarely available and tranquil rural setting within Kingsley Common in grounds of about 1.635 acres. This is a very interesting modern house designed to complement and take full advantage of the beautiful rural location and principally south aspect to the rear with bright and well-proportioned rooms with large double glazed windows and vaulted ceilings.
Features of note include a triple aspect kitchen/dining room with large windows and sliding doors opening out to the garden and terrace. This is a wonderful room extending to 30'3 / 9.8m. The kitchen is fitted with a bespoke range of fitted cabinets together with an Aga and granite work surfaces. The generous living accommodation also includes a twin aspect drawing room with a wood burning stove, family room and study.
There are four bedrooms including a bedroom suite and a family bathroom. Of note, three of the bedrooms have vaulted ceilings and large triangular windows.
The original property on the site is now a detached annexe and was believed to have been constructed at the end of Crimean War. The detached two bedroom cottage could either be used as ancillary accommodation to the main house or as a home office / hobby area.
The house stands within the most delightful grounds extending in all to about 1.635 acres with a paddock and hay barn.
The house occupies a very special and rarely available rural location in the heart of Kingsley Common. Kingsley Common is an area of special scientific interest of unspoilt woodland and open spaces - ideal for many country pursuits. Much of the appeal of the village of Kingsley is its location amidst fine Hampshire countryside between the villages of Binsted, Oakhanger and East Worldham. The village has an active community with a church, shop / post office and public house. The popular market towns of Alton, Farnham and Petersfield provide a comprehensive range of shopping, recreational and educational facilities as well as mainline railway stations to London Waterloo. The historic market town of Alton has a good range of High Street shops, senior schools, further education college, Alton Convent, sports centre and two outlying golf courses. The immediate surrounding area provides ample opportunity for many country pursuits with a network of footpaths and bridleways across the common.
The house is approached via a five bar gate leading to a gravel driveway terminating in a turning parking area centred by a lawned island with a silver birch tree to the front. To the side there is a concrete apron and a timber outbuilding divided between a hay barn and a loose box.
Within the grounds there is also a two bedroom detached cottage with an entrance hall, sitting room, dining room, kitchen/breakfast room, bathroom and two bedrooms.
The garden is a particular feature of the property and provides an ideal setting in Kingsley Common. Adjoining the house on the south side there is a paved patio with flower and shrub borders. The garden is principally laid to lawn with a number of young and mature trees. There is a small paddock to the west of the garden enclosed by post and rail fencing. In all the gardens and grounds extend to about 1.635 acres.
