An interesting, individual and very spacious detached family house standing off a tranquil no through village lane. The house takes full advantage of the principally south aspect to the rear and was designed to complement the mature village setting with elevations of stone and flint and oak framed double glazed windows. The generous living accommodation is very flexible and includes a vaulted sitting/dining room with a fireplace and a wood burning stove as well as a further separate sitting room with a fireplace and two sets of double doors opening out to the garden. Features of note also include a stunning open plan kitchen/breakfast room with double doors opening out to the balcony overlooking the garden. This is a magnificent vaulted room extending to 22'8 /6.9m with a bespoke kitchen set around a large island with granite work surfaces and a gas fired Aga. Importantly, there is a separate utility room. There are four double bedrooms including a very impressive principal bedroom suite with double doors opening out to the rear balcony together with an adjoining dressing room and en-suite bathroom. There is also a separate family bathroom and shower room. Furthermore, the original design included a large and very useful basement with an external door.
The active village of Beech is only about two miles distant of Alton and is surrounded by fine Hampshire countryside within an unspoilt wooded valley (with a number of foot and bridle paths) between the villages of Bentworth, Medstead and Shalden. The village has a very strong community with a parish church, hall and green. The village of Bentworth, about 3 miles, has a Primary School, public house and church. The village of Medstead (about 2 miles) also has a shop and Primary School. Alton provides a good range of facilities and mainline station to London Waterloo.
The house stands within attractive landscaped grounds providing a beautiful setting with a principally south aspect. The garden to the rear is terraced over several levels with areas of lawn, fruit trees and well-stocked borders with a variety of roses and hydrangea. There is a greenhouse and timber shed within the rear garden as well as a watering system. A large paved terrace adjoins the sitting room and provides an ideal outside seating area. Of note, there is also an oak framed balcony providing a further seating area with access from the kitchen / breakfast room, principal bedroom and second upper floor bedroom. A private driveway provides ample parking and access to the large double garage with storage above.
