A delightful and very spacious detached period house of great character standing close to the heart of the picturesque Hampshire village of Upper Farringdon. Believed to date from around the 17th Century with later additions, the house takes full advantage of the features associated with a building of this period with exposed beams and timbers as well as an Inglenook fireplace in the drawing room. The house has been carefully extended and now provides a very well-proportioned and fine family home whilst still retaining all of its inherent character. Many of the rooms have the benefit of a dual aspect and are larger than first anticipated. The very generous living accommodation is ideally suited to family living and includes a double aspect drawing room with an Inglenook fireplace and wood burning stove. Double doors lead from here to a large triple aspect sitting room with double doors opening out to the garden. The excellent living accommodation is beautifully complemented by a very spacious kitchen and dining room. The kitchen has been fitted with a full range of cabinets and a dual plate gas fired Nobel range. There are four bedrooms to the first floor including a principal bedroom suite with a dressing area and bathroom. There is also a separate family bathroom completed with a white suite with a shower bath and mosaic tiled walls. Also, there is also a very useful attic room. Externally, the house is complemented by a principally south facing rear garden with fine views from the first floor rooms towards open countryside.
The active village of Upper Farringdon is set amidst fine Hampshire countryside between the villages of Chawton, East Tisted and Worldham within the South Downs National Park. The village has an active community with a public house, church and village hall. Upper Farringdon is in an enviable position allowing for a number of country pursuits. Of note, there is a primary school and further public house in Chawton. The historic market town of Alton has a good range of high street shops, weekly and specialist markets, senior schools, further education college, Alton convent, sports centre and mainline railway station to London Waterloo.
The garden is a particular feature of the house with a principally south aspect to the rear and fine views towards open countryside. A paved terrace immediately to the rear provides an ideal outside seating area. Steps lead to a wide expanse of lawn marked by mature hedging and post and rail fencing together with a lavender border and rockery. The shingle driveway provides ample parking and access to a timber garage.
