About this property

TENURE: Freehold

A detached chalet style house standing in grounds of about 1.27 acres and occupying an elevated and private location in the popular village of Beech. The property has been owned by the same family for the last forty years and now provides potential to improve and extend (subject to the usual planning consents). The existing ground floor accommodation comprises an L-shaped sitting room/dining room, further reception room/bedroom 3, kitchen/breakfast room, hall, bathroom and separate cloakroom. The first floor comprises two bedrooms and an en-suite shower room. There is also an integral garage and a range of outbuildings including a detached single garage, store divided into three sections, summerhouse, greenhouse and further 13.9m (45') 'barn'. This is a rare and interesting opportunity to undertake significant modernisation or redevelopment in a tranquil and mature village location.

The very attractive and active village of Beech with its own Parish Council is surrounded by fine Hampshire countryside within an unspoilt wooded valley between the villages of Bentworth, Medstead and Shalden. The village has a very strong community with a church and village hall. There are a number of foot and bridle paths nearby, while the village of Bentworth, about 3 miles, has a Primary School, public house and church. The village of Medstead (about 2 miles) also has shops, a public house and Primary School. The village of Beech stands adjacent to Alton whilst also adjoining fine open Hampshire countryside with a network of footpaths leading towards open countryside.

Alton provides a good range of individual shops and supermarkets together with weekly markets, cinema, sports centre, two secondary schools, 6th form college and station with a direct line to London Waterloo.

The gardens and grounds provide a very special setting for the property. The access drive rises up to the front of the property where there is space for parking for several vehicles. The majority of the grounds lie to the rear and include areas of lawn interspersed with a variety of mature trees, shrub borders and an orchard. In all the gardens and grounds extend to about 1.276 acres (0.515 ha).
