A truly delightful and spacious Grade II listed thatched farmhouse of great character together with a Rookery Barns detached barn style oak framed building (incorporating a games room / bedroom, shower room and double garage) standing in landscaped grounds of about an acre. It is one of the most beautiful detached houses in the area and is set within fine, private gardens off a small lane having originally been the farmhouse for Headmore Farm. The house is believed to date from the 17th Century and is full of character with exposed beams, old latch doors and a hipped thatched roof. Throughout the property, the rooms are well-proportioned and they include a Neptune fitted kitchen/breakfast room, separate dining room and an airy twin aspect sitting room with a fireplace and wood burning stove. The kitchen adjoins the utility room and is fitted with a bespoke range of cabinets and drawers together with quartz work surfaces. There are three bedrooms and a well-appointed bathroom with traditional white sanitary ware and a Victoria and Albert bath. The third bedroom has an adjoining hobby/study room. Of note, the house is complemented by a detached barn style oak framed building by Rookery Barns with a useful store room to the ground floor and bedroom/games room and shower room to the first floor, providing flexibility and very useful ancillary accommodation. This is a very appealing village home that has been sensitively improved by the existing owners (including a new thatched roof in 2017) whilst retaining the period character and charm of the original farmhouse.
The house occupies a tranquil position on the boundaries of the South Downs National Park. Four Marks has an active community with a church, primary school, golf course and selection of shops. The village is set within open countryside between the villages of Medstead, Ropley and Chawton. The historic town of Alresford has a good range of facilities including the renowned Perins secondary school whilst Alton and Winchester provide a comprehensive range of facilities and stations to London Waterloo. The surrounding area provides ample opportunity for many country pursuits.
The house stands within attractive landscaped grounds providing a beautiful setting with a pond and areas of lawn and light woodland together with a vegetable garden and a variety of fruit trees. A private driveway is approached via a pair of five bar gates and provides ample parking and access to the oak framed outbuilding, double garage with electric doors and log store, timber sheds and greenhouse. There is access from a gate at the front to a yard with pedestrian access to Headmore Lane.
