A spacious and versatile detached house standing within the conservation area and close to the heart of the beautiful village of Selborne. The house was designed to take full advantage of the principally south-west aspect to the rear and retains many of the features associated with an older building with well-proportioned rooms set around a large galleried reception hall. The generous accommodation includes a double aspect sitting room extending to 19'7 ft. / 5.9m with a central fireplace and broad bay window with a fine view towards the garden. This is a wonderful room and provides an ideal setting for entertaining. The further accommodation is versatile and ideal for everyday family living with a spacious kitchen opening into a separate dining room. Sliding doors open from the dining room into the conservatory with a lovely outlook and access to the garden. There is also a study (which could be utilised as a fourth bedroom), bathroom and utility room to the ground floor. There are three bedrooms to the first floor including a principal bedroom with an en suite bathroom.
The active village of Selborne stands amidst fine Hampshire countryside with a public house, shops, post office, church and primary school. Hastards Lane is a small no-through village lane within about 200m of the village shop and public house. The village is also renowned for its association with Gilbert White, the 18th Century naturalist and is surrounded by scenery of outstanding natural beauty lying at the foot of a beech covered hanger within the South Downs National Park. The immediate area provides ample opportunity for a number of country pursuits. The larger centres of Liss, Alton and Petersfield collectively provide a range of facilities as well as mainline railway stations to London Waterloo. Also, the A3 can be accessed at Liss providing a route to London and the south coast.
The house stands within well-established grounds providing a secluded setting with an octagonal summerhouse, well-stocked raised rose borders and a pond, spring bulbs and a variety of young and mature trees including a weeping silver birch and hornbeam. A paved terrace provides an ideal outside seating area. A private driveway provides parking and access to the garage. Timber shed.
