A beautiful detached thatched barn occupying an idyllic rural setting with stunning views and gardens and grounds of about half an acre. The feeling of light, space and character is immediate with a large vaulted galleried dining hall providing a magnificent and very flexible reception space with full height windows and a wealth of exposed beams. The generous accommodation includes a triple aspect sitting room with a wood burning stove and a dual aspect family room / occasional fourth bedroom. There is a bespoke farmhouse kitchen / breakfast room with a dual plate Rayburn and granite work surfaces together with an adjoining utility room and cloakroom. The galleried landing is a particular feature of the property with views towards open countryside to the front and rear. There are three bedrooms to the first floor including a spacious principal bedroom suite with a dressing area and bathroom with a freestanding bath and shower cubicle. There is also a Jack and Jill bathroom linking to each of the other bedrooms. The barn has a predominantly south-west aspect to the rear with a landscaped garden and paddock.
The village of Lower Wield is set amidst beautiful undulating Hampshire countryside between the villages of Medstead, Bentworth and Preston Candover. The villages of Medstead and Preston Candover each feature village shops as well as primary schools whilst the village of Lower Wield itself has a well-known country Inn 'The Yew Tree' and Cricket Club. There is an ancient church in Upper Wield whilst the regional towns of Alton and Basingstoke together with Winchester provide a wide range of facilities as well as mainline railway stations to London. The A31 and M3 provide a route to London, the south coast and beyond. The surrounding countryside provides opportunity for many country pursuits.
The gardens and grounds are a particular feature of the barn and provide a beautiful setting having been landscaped to take full advantage of the principally south west-aspect to the rear. There are a variety of areas of interest, each with a colour theme, together with young and mature trees and a brick terrace providing an ideal outside seating area. A gate through a mature hedgerow leads to an area of lawn and the paddock beyond. A private driveway to the front provides ample parking and access to the detached timber framed garage and workshop. The garage could potentially be altered to create additional ancillary accommodation, subject to any necessary planning consents.
