A well-appointed and spacious terraced period cottage standing in the rural hamlet of Empshott with long views over open countryside. The cottage is full of character and is far larger than initially anticipated with a number of appealing and interesting features having been originally converted from a former oast house. The generous living accommodation includes a lovely sitting room with a fireplace and a wood burning stove. There is a very spacious kitchen/dining room with a range of cabinets, exposed stone walls, integrated fridge and freezer and a range. There are three bedrooms to the first floor together with a wonderful family bathroom with a roll top bath. Also, there is a separate stylish shower room. The cottage is fitted with an air source heat pump and has the benefit of double glazed windows. In addition, the cottage has a garage, off road parking and an area of garden set away from the property with a very useful outbuilding. This is a very appealing cottage of character standing in a very attractive rural location yet only just over a mile from Selborne.
The rural hamlet of Empshott is just over a mile to the south of Selborne in between the villages of Hawkley and Greatham within the South Downs National Park. Empshott has a church and
hall and provides ample opportunity for many country pursuits. The active village of Selborne has a public house, shops, post office and church. 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. The larger centres of Liss, Alton and Petersfield collectively provide a range of facilities including public houses and restaurants, sports centres and mainline railway stations to London Waterloo. Also, the A3 can be accessed at Liss providing a route to London and the south coast.
To the front, there is a low stone wall with a paved area providing an outside seating area. Immediately to the rear, there is a paved courtyard area with raised shaped borders and trellis. To the rear of the cottage, there is a detached garage with an electric up and over door and a wood store to one side. There is a further area of ground at the end of a shingle path which runs along side the garage and the neighbours gardens. The garden is mainly laid to lawn with a timber outbuilding (with a WC) enclosed by panelled fencing. An area of decking provides an ideal outside seating and BBQ area.
