A fascinating and magnificent home of immense character created from the main part of a historic Grade II Listed former school believed to be the oldest original school in Hampshire. Dating back to 1640, within the Jacobean period of Charles I, this Grade II Listed building is of important historical interest. The careful conversion of the main building, this house being the principal original portion, has created a lovely family home whilst still retaining all of the inherent character of the original building. The house is beautifully appointed and the extensive accommodation includes a number of interesting features including a very impressive three storey vaulted entrance hall and wonderful sitting / dining room with a large open fireplace. The generous first floor accommodation includes three well-proportioned bedrooms and a very stylish bath/shower room. The principal bedroom suite to the second floor is a magnificent room with exposed beams and polished floor boards with an en suite bathroom. The partly walled garden is principally to the front of the house and provides a good degree of seclusion.
John Eggars Square occupies a very convenient location within half a mile of the town centre, railway station and Anstey Park. The historic market town of Alton has a good range of high street shops, weekly and specialist markets, Waitrose food shop, senior schools, further education college, Alton convent, sports centre and two outlying golf courses. The A31 provides a route to the A3 and M3 linking to London, the south coast and beyond.
The walled garden to the front has been landscaped with areas of lawn enclosed by beech hedging and several young and mature trees. A paved terrace provides an ideal outside seating area. A gate to the front leads onto a pedestrian pathway along Anstey Road. The garage and parking space is approached via a shared shingle driveway from the main entrance. The garage is set to the far left of the block of four. There is a parking space to the front of the garage and also the courtyard.
A management charge of £100 per quarter is made to John Eggars Square Management Company for the upkeep and maintenance of the communal areas.
