3 Bedroom Semi Detached House, Amery Street, Alton, Hampshire, GU34 1HN

Tenure Type: Freehold

Property Description

A very handsome attached Grade II house of great character and history standing close to the heart of the town with a beautiful walled garden. The house is believed to date from around 1550 and was reputedly once the home of Edward Spenser, poet to the court of Elizabeth I. The house now provides a home of considerable character and charm whilst still retaining all of its inherent character with exposed beams, open fireplaces and some exposed brickwork. The generous living accommodation includes a spacious dining room and a lovely sitting room with an open fireplace with a wood burning stove. The ground floor accommodation is beautifully complemented by a fitted kitchen with a full range of cabinets and integrated Neff appliances together with granite work surfaces. The kitchen opens into the breakfast room with a door out to the garden. The property also has the considerable benefit of a ground floor cloakroom and utility room. The drawing room (incorporating a library/study area) to the first floor is a wonderful double aspect room with a fireplace, exposed brick walls and beams. The principal bedroom is to the first floor and enjoys a double aspect with a fireplace together with an en-suite bathroom with a shower, bath, WC and basin. There are two bedrooms to the second floor and a shower room. Historical note about Edmund Spenser: Spenser was born circa 1552 and was believed to be living in London in 1579 in the employment of the Earl of Leicester. By 1589, Spenser had made the acquaintance of Sir Walter Raleigh who presented him to Queen Elizabeth I and it is believed that Spenser's famous poem "The Fairie Queen" was dedicated to her.

The house stands in the heart of the thriving country market town of Alton. The house is of important local historical interest and is a landmark building within the town. The historic market town of Alton has a good range of individual high street shops as well as Waitrose and M&S Simply Food, senior schools, further education college, Alton convent, sports centre and two outlying golf courses. Of note, the mainline railway station connecting to London Waterloo is just over 1/2 a mile. The A31 provides a route to the A3 and M3 linking to London, the south coast and beyond.

The walled garden is a very special feature of the property and has been landscaped with low maintenance in mind with an area of shingle and steps to a seating area with well stocked borders and rockery together with a very well positioned summer house. The garden has a principally south-west aspect and provides a private and tranquil outside seating area.
