A charming detached period cottage, with a separate annexe, standing in an exceptional rural location with stunning views. The cottage has been carefully enlarged to take best advantage of the setting with views over open countryside, whilst retaining all its inherent character. Elevations are of local stone and brick beneath a tiled roof. The hall provides access to a delightful sitting room with a wood floor, part brick and stone exposed walls and a beam marked ‘1852’ together with a central fireplace housing a wood burning stove. The dining room also features a wood floor and the cloakroom doubles as a utility room with a quarry tiled floor and plumbing for a washing machine. The kitchen/dining room is the heart of the cottage with double doors opening out into the garden. There is a range of base cabinets with part granite work surfaces, painted wood floor, microwave and oven together with a Classic Deluxe 110 range cooker. On the first floor there is a useful study area on the landing and three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The main bedroom enjoys lovely distant views, a useful eaves storage cupboard and an en-suite bathroom. Bedroom three has a fitted wardrobe and the family bathroom has been finished with a roll top bath with shower tap. A useful annexe with separate access comprises a sitting room, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom and is situated over the double garage/workshop. This is currently let to a long term tenant on an assured short hold tenancy which we understand could continue if it suited the purchaser.
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 within the South Downs National Park. The larger centres of Petersfield 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 garden is mainly to the rear of the cottage with areas of lawn, flower and shrub borders, vegetable garden and chicken run. A paved terrace adjoining the kitchen provides an ideal outside seating area with stunning views over the undulating Hampshire countryside. An area of decking to the rear of the annexe provides a further seating area. It should be noted that an area of ground to the side of the cottage is used, but not owned by the cottage.
