A beautiful Grade II Listed detached house of great character and history standing close to the heart of the very pretty Hampshire village of Upper Farringdon. The house is believed to date from 1565 and has been sensitively extended and improved by the existing owners to provide a very interesting, bright and spacious village home whilst still retaining all of its inherent character with exposed beams and timbers, old latch doors and fireplaces. The generous living accommodation includes a double aspect sitting room with a fireplace and wood burning stove, dining room also with a fireplace and study. The accommodation is complemented by a large family kitchen/ breakfast room with French doors opening out to the garden. There are four well-proportioned bedrooms to the first floor with an en-suite shower room to the principal bedroom. There is also a separate family bathroom. In addition, the house is complemented by a very useful detached garden studio (with a shower room) providing further flexible accommodation. The garden studio could be utilised for a number of different purposes and includes a wood burning stove.
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.
