A delightful detached period house of great character and charm occupying an exceptional edge of village location in grounds of about 0.6 of an acre. The house has been sensitively refurbished and extended by the existing owners whilst still retaining all of the inherent character of the original cottage with most of the rooms having multiple views over the surrounding garden. The generous accommodation includes a well-proportioned twin aspect sitting room with an Inglenook fireplace and a double sided wood burning stove. The wood burning stove also opens into the spacious dining room with French doors opening out to the terrace and garden. The kitchen/breakfast room adjoins the dining room and is fitted with bespoke ash fronted cabinets and textured granite work surfaces, breakfast bar, integrated dishwasher and an electric range. The cottage also has the benefit of a study, utility room and cloakroom. There are three bedrooms to the first floor including an en suite bathroom and separate shower room, each fitted with stylish white sanitary ware. Importantly, the house was refurbished to be as energy efficient as possible and is fitted with a ground source heat pump, ash framed leaded light double glazing and under floor heating to the ground floor and bath/shower rooms with radiators to the landing and bedrooms.
The cottage stands within the South Downs National Park with views over farmland and occupies a very special and tranquil location adjoining land managed by the Woodland Trust and with no immediate neighbours. Oakhanger stands amongst fine Hampshire countryside and has an active community with a church, public house and hall. The village borders the SDNP and Shortheath Common, a protected area of special scientific interest, providing ample opportunity for many country pursuits. The market towns of Alton and Petersfield have a broad range of facilities, weekly and specialist markets, sports centres, schools and mainline stations to London.
The gardens make the most magical setting for this beautiful period house with a pond and areas of lawn, flower and rose borders together with a variety of young and mature trees. A terrace adjoins the dining room and provides an ideal outside seating area overlooking oak trees and the open countryside beyond. The driveway provides parking and access to the 'Rookery Barns' oak framed garage with a Chargemaster connection for electric vehicles, workshop and store room.
