About this property

TENURE: Freehold

A delightful cottage, full of character, standing in a wonderful garden with a principally south aspect to the rear together with an annexe and views of the Selborne Hanger. The cottage takes full advantage of the features associated with a building of this period and now provides a very interesting home whilst still retaining all of its inherent character with sash windows, exposed beams and open fireplaces. The light and airy accommodation is larger than first anticipated and is ideal for family living with a lovely farmhouse kitchen/dining room with a terracotta tiled floor. The beautiful sitting room has exposed stone walling and an open fireplace. There are three bedrooms and a traditional bathroom suite with a roll top bath. Of note, the cottage is beautifully complemented by a recently converted barn providing very flexible ancillary accommodation and including a spacious living room to the ground floor together with a shower room and first floor bedroom. This is a wonderful space which has been designed in harmony with the cottage, with elevations of local stone beneath a slate roof, and could be utilised in a variety of ways depending upon individual preference.

The cottage stands within a quarter of a mile of the centre of the very pretty and unspoilt village of Selborne with views from the garden to The Hanger. The active village of Selborne stands amidst fine Hampshire countryside with a public house, church and primary school. 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 larger centres of Liss and Alton collectively provide a range of facilities as well as mainline railway stations to London Waterloo. In addition, the A3 can be accessed at Liss providing a route to London and the south coast.

The garden provides a 'magical' setting with a variety of areas of interest and views of the Selborne Hanger. To the front, a network of pathways are interspersed by areas of lawn, fruit trees, hedging and flowering borders together with an area of paved terrace to the front of the barn and providing an ideal outside seating area. Immediately to the rear, there is an area of mixed paving and shingle and a pathway with areas of lawn to either side with flower borders and a rose trellis. There is a further area of lawn beyond with stone walling. A shingle driveway provides parking to the front.
