Open House by Appointment Saturday 26th May. An exceptionally well-appointed individual detached house of great character adjoining open farmland with distant rural views. The house is believed to date from the 18th Century and was originally three cottages. The house has since been carefully enlarged to create a very appealing family home whilst still retaining all of the inherent character of the original building. The very generous and flexible living accommodation includes a sitting room with a central open brick fireplace and double doors opening out to the garden, family room and a lovely dining room with an Inglenook fireplace. This is a stunning room and provides a natural link between the kitchen and living accommodation. Features of note also include a spacious kitchen/breakfast room fitted with a range of eye and base level cabinets, electric oven and De Dietrich hob. There are four bedrooms including a principal bedroom with an en suite bathroom and adjoining walk in wardrobe. There is also a family bathroom. Of note, each of the bathrooms are finished with stylish white sanitary ware.
The house occupies a rural situation in-between the villages of Selborne, Chawton and Farringdon with far reaching views across the adjoining farmland towards the Selborne Hanger. The South Downs National Park is close by and provides ample opportunity for many country pursuits. Together East and West Worldham have an active community with a public house, two churches and a village hall. Selborne is about 3 miles away with a public house, shops, church and primary school. The village is also renowned for its association with Gilbert White, the 18th Century naturalist and is surrounded by scenery of outstanding natural beauty lying at the foot of a beech covered hanger. The popular market town of Alton has a good range of individual shops and stores including Waitrose and Marks and Spencer Food together with weekly and specialist markets. There is also a cinema, sports centre and railway station to London Waterloo.
The house stands within attractive landscaped grounds providing a beautiful setting with areas of lawn with several young and mature trees, estate fencing and established hedgerows. A paved terrace adjoins the sitting room and provides an ideal outside seating area. A private driveway is approached via a pair of hardwood electric gates and provides ample parking and access to the front.
It should be noted by potential purchasers that there are electricity pylons within sight of the property.
