A delightful, spacious and charming Grade II Listed village house which dates, we understand, to the 19th century with later additions. The cottage takes full advantage of the features associated with a building of this period with elevations of local stone and brick beneath a tiled roof. Features of note include a lovely French farmhouse style kitchen / dining room with a vaulted ceiling, aged limestone floor and an Aga together with double doors opening out to the garden. The generous accommodation also includes a well-proportioned sitting room with an oak floor and wood burning stove set within a traditional brick fireplace. The further accommodation is spread over several levels and includes four bedrooms and a very stylish wet room and bathroom suite. The bathroom has been completed with white sanitary ware and a very large freestanding bath with a traditional mixer tap and shower over together with a limestone floor and low level lighting. Of note, the fourth bedroom could be utilised as study. The careful mix of traditional and modern materials including cast iron radiators to the ground floor and traditional light switches has created a superb family home with a wonderful atmosphere in the heart of the village.
The cottage stands within the conservation area close to the heart of the very pretty and unspoilt village of Selborne with views from the rear to The Hanger. The active village of Selborne stands amidst fine Hampshire countryside 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 larger centres of Liss and Alton collectively provide a range of facilities as well as mainline railway stations to London Waterloo. In addition, the A3 can be accessed at Liss providing a route to London and the south coast.
The landscaped garden is a very special feature of the cottage and provides an ideal setting with a predominantly south - west aspect to the rear and views of the Hanger. The garden to the front is enclosed by mature hedging together with lime trees. Double doors from the kitchen open onto a York flagstone terrace. Steps lead up to an outside seating area and to the main area of garden with an area of lawn and a variety of flowering shrubs and plants. A gate to the rear provides access to the parking area and timber shed.
