A Grade II Listed house of immense character, believed to date from the 17th Century, standing close to the heart of the village in gardens and grounds of about a third of an acre. The house takes full advantage of the features associated with a building of this period and now provides a very interesting home whilst still retaining all of the inherent character of the original building. There are a number of period features throughout including exposed beams and timbers, old latch doors and a fireplace in the sitting room. Many of the rooms have the benefit of a dual aspect and are larger than first anticipated. The generous living accommodation is very flexible and includes a double aspect sitting room with double doors opening out to the garden, dining room and family room. The accommodation is complemented by a kitchen/breakfast room with a full range of cream fronted cabinets and appliances including an electric oven and hob. There are three bedrooms to the first floor as well as a flexible study / fourth bedroom and bathroom to the ground floor. This is a very appealing home of great character standing close to the heart of this traditional Hampshire village.
