An exceptional attached village house of great character and history standing close to the heart of East Worldham with principally south-west facing gardens. The original barn and oast house, dating from the mid 18th Century and mid 19th Century, were carefully converted in 1985 to create an ideal village home whilst still retaining all of the inherent character of the original building with exposed beams and beautiful external elevations of local stone and brick beneath a part slate and part tiled roof. The house is very well-appointed and far larger than initially anticipated with a vaulted entrance hall and very well-proportioned rooms. The generous living accommodation includes a large triple aspect sitting room with an inglenook fireplace and a wood burning stove as well as a separate dining room. Of note, French doors open out from the sitting room into an ideally positioned conservatory with French doors opening out from here to the principally south-west facing garden. The very spacious handmade farmhouse kitchen / breakfast room includes a full range of fitted cabinets and a 'Total Control' electric Aga. There are five bedrooms including a twin aspect principal bedroom with an en-suite bathroom. Of note, the further bedrooms are complemented by a recently replaced traditional family bath/shower room suite. In addition, there is also a very useful 'oast' room accessed via a folding ladder from the principal bedroom.
The house stands close to the heart of the active village of East Worldham. 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 village hall, public house and 13th Century church. East Worldham is approximately three miles from the thriving market town of Alton, which benefits from a good range of individual shops, cinema, sports centre, secondary schools, 6th form college and railway station to London Waterloo. The surrounding countryside provides ample opportunity for many country pursuits with footpaths into the National Park.
The house stands within an attractive landscaped garden providing a beautiful setting with areas of lawn and a variety of rose and shrub borders, young and mature trees and mixed hedging. A stone paved terrace adjoins the conservatory and provides an ideal outside seating area. A private driveway is accessed via a five bar gate and provides ample parking. Of note, planning consent has been granted for a timber framed garage of approximately 6m x 4.5m. Ref: SDNP/16/02938/HOUS. Agents Note: Private drainage is via a modern treatment plant installed in 2013.
