An exceptionally spacious detached family house standing close to the heart of the beautiful Hampshire village of East Worldham. The house was designed to take full advantage of the setting and stands centrally within its own established grounds with fine views from each of the rooms over the surrounding garden. The feeling of space is immediate with a large galleried reception hall opening into each of the well-proportioned principal rooms. The generous living accommodation includes a large twin aspect sitting room with a raised wood burning stove and sliding doors to the garden, dining room (also with sliding doors to the garden) and study / second sitting room. The kitchen is fitted with a comprehensive range of cabinets and an oil fired dual plate Aga. The property also has the benefit of a utility room and ground floor cloakroom. There are five bedrooms to the first floor including a very impressive principal bedroom with an en suite shower room. There is also a separate family bathroom with a bath and separate shower cubicle. The gardens and grounds are a particular feature of the house and provide a wonderful setting with a principally west aspect to the rear.
The house forms part of a small close of detached houses within the former walled gardens of the village manor. The village is set amidst fine Hampshire countryside between the villages of Selborne, Binsted and Kingsley within the South Downs National Park. There is a public house, 13th Century church and village hall and play ground.
