4 Bedroom Detached House, Lower Paice Lane, Medstead, Alton, GU34 5PX

Tenure Type: Freehold

Property Description

A very welcoming family home occupying an idyllic rural location in grounds including paddocks and an orchard of about 1.4 acres. The magical nature of the setting provides a genuine retreat in a very special and unspoilt location yet within reach of the market towns of Alton and Alresford and the Cathedral city of Winchester.

The house was designed and built in the early 1950’s to take full advantage of the setting with a principally south aspect to the rear and still retains many of the features of a building of this period with well-proportioned rooms, high ceilings and large windows.

The house offers the potential to extend and a recent pre-application enquiry response (July 2016) from the district planning office suggests that (as the property has not been extended since construction) it could be enlarged by up to 50% of its original floor area. Please note that that any additions / extensions / alterations would be subject to any necessary planning consents and the prevailing planning policies at the point of application.

The generous and versatile living accommodation includes a spacious double aspect sitting/dining room with an African olive wood floor and fireplaces including a wood burning stove to the sitting room. The careful design of the house also includes a garden room with French doors opening out to the primarily south facing rear garden. The study provides further space and flexibility as well as a potential ground floor bedroom / home office as there is an independent door to outside. The overall accommodation is complemented by a family kitchen/breakfast room and separate utility room.

There are four well proportioned bedrooms and a family bathroom. Of note, the principal bedroom has double doors opening onto a large balcony overlooking the mature grounds.

The existing owners have invested carefully in renewable energy to maximise the efficiency of the house. A Bio mass boiler was installed in 2013 and solar panels generate electricity and feed into the national grid.

In addition, the house is complemented by a detached outbuilding. The large studio / games room extends to approximately 7.04 m x 23’1 ft. and has a Jotul wood burning stove. This space could be a hobby room, home office or possibly a self contained annexe (if required and subject to any necessary consents).

Situation
Few properties occupy such an exceptional rural location. The house stands at the end of a small no through lane about two miles to the south of the village. The immediate location provides an ideal base for many country pursuits and hacking. Medstead is an active village standing amidst undulating Hampshire countryside with a church, public house, primary school, local shops and a number of village clubs and societies. The market towns of Alton and Alresford together with the cathedral city of Winchester collectively provide a wide range of facilities as well as mainline railway stations to London Waterloo.

Outside
The house stands within the most attractive gardens and grounds providing an idyllic setting and a good degree of seclusion with views over the surrounding open countryside. A private driveway provides ample parking to the front and access to the garage with an electric roller door. The garden has a variety of areas of interest and is mainly laid to lawn with a variety of young and mature trees and a paved terrace providing an ideal outside seating area. The grounds extend into two paddocks marked by post and rail fencing. The first paddock has a stable block (stable, tack room, shelter) with an area of hard standing. The second paddock has a field shelter. Within the grounds there is a timber shed and former green house. In all the gardens and grounds extend to about 1.4 acres.
