EQUESTRIAN - An individual country home of great character, with annexe accommodation, set in a wonderful rural location surrounded by beautiful farmland in grounds of about 2.4 acres. This former Estate Cottage, dating from the mid 1800’s, has been carefully extended to create a very interesting family home with the added benefit of a ground floor annexe. The cottage is presented with whitewashed elevations under a slate tiled roof and features wood burning stoves in both the sitting room and the drawing room. There are a number of other features typical of a building of this period and many of the rooms enjoy fine views over the surrounding countryside. The generous accommodation is very flexible and includes three reception rooms and a kitchen/breakfast room. In all, there are five bedrooms and a bathroom and shower room. The mainly level grounds adjoin the property and the equestrian facilities include a barn with four stables and a 20m x 40m ménage. This is a rare opportunity to purchase an individual rural property set well away from passing traffic yet only about 3.5 miles from the centre of Alton.
This property is featured by our Equestrian department.
The property occupies a rarely available and stunning location with glorious views and no immediate neighbours being set amidst open farmland between the villages of Chawton and Farringdon and within the South Downs National Park. The village has an active community with a public house, church and village hall. Of note, the village of Chawton is renowned for its association with Jane Austen and has a strong village community with a primary school and public house. The historic market town of Alton has a good range of high street shops, weekly and specialist markets, Waitrose, senior schools, further education college, Alton convent, sports centre and mainline railway station to London Waterloo.
The cottage is approached via a farm track and adjoins open farmland. Of note, the footpath to the rear follows the line of the former Meon Valley railway line. The gardens and grounds are set mainly to the rear and extend to about 2.41 acres with established boundaries of mature hedges and trees. The barn houses four stables and is large enough to also accommodate a horse box lorry and trailer as well as space for the storage of hay and straw. In addition, there is also a 20m x 40m ménage. There is ample car parking opposite the cottage and an additional area of gravel parking.
