A spacious semi-detached cottage, believed to date from the late 1890's and with scope for improvement, standing in a sought after elevated location above the town towards the end of a no through road. It is understood that this is the first time that the property has been on the market for about seventy years.
The generous accommodation includes a well-proportioned sitting room with a gas coal effect fireplace with marble hearth and wooden surround and spacious kitchen / dining room. There is a further room to the rear that could be utilised as a study or possible fourth bedroom together with a wet room and WC. There are three bedrooms to the first floor.
Of note, planning permission was granted in October 1994, now lapsed, (Ref:30586/002) to erect a new detached dwelling with three bedrooms to the eastern side of the existing property.
There is therefore potential to create a new detached dwelling within the grounds subject to a new planning application being submitted and permitted by the local planning authority.
The market town of Alton provides a comprehensive range of local amenities and facilities as well as a mainline railway station connecting to London Waterloo in just over an hour.
