A charming individual detached period house standing close to the heart of the traditional Hampshire village of Upper Farringdon in generous mature grounds of about 0.397 of an acre. The house has evolved over a number of years and now provides an incoming buyer with an ideal opportunity to improve and extend (subject to any necessary consents) in a broad plot (extending to about 124 ft. / 37.9 m) in an exceptional village setting within the South Downs National Park. The current owners have considered the possible layout of a four bedroom, three bath/shower room family home with a spacious kitchen / dining / family room together with a larger principal living room, study and dining room. The grounds could accommodate a larger family sized house but planning permission would have to be granted in order to undertake any form of extension and / or alteration. The current living accommodation includes a dining room and double aspect sitting room with an open stone fireplace complemented by a well-proportioned kitchen / breakfast room. The further ground floor accommodation could be utilised in a number of different ways and is enhanced by a large garden room / studio and utility area. There are three bedrooms, study and bath/shower room to the first floor. The garden and very special established central village location are very much the overriding features of the property and provide an ideal setting and a good degree of seclusion.
The active village of Upper Farringdon is set amidst fine Hampshire countryside between the villages of Chawton, East Tisted and Worldham within the South Downs National Park. The village has an active community with a public house, church and village hall. Upper Farringdon is in an enviable position allowing for a number of country pursuits.

The historic market town of Alton has a good range of high street shops, weekly and specialist markets, Waitrose food shop, senior schools, further education college, Alton convent, sports centre and mainline railway station to London Waterloo.
