An individual detached family house on the market for the first time since 1957, standing in mature grounds of about 0.18 of an acre within three quarters of a mile of the High Street and a mile of the mainline station. The house is now in need of some updating but provides an incoming buyer with the potential to take advantage of the character of house and location to improve and enlarge, subject to any necessary consents. The house still retains many of the features associated with an older style house with well-proportioned rooms with high ceilings and large windows together with some fireplaces. The existing accommodation is set around a spacious hall and includes a sitting room with an open fireplace, family/dining room and a separate study. The accommodation is complemented by a kitchen and adjoining larder. The property also has the considerable benefit of a ground floor cloakroom. The first floor accommodation includes four bedrooms and a family bathroom. Of note, the principal bedroom has an adjoining “box” room which could potentially be converted to create an en-suite bathroom, subject to any necessary consents. This is a rare opportunity to purchase an individual detached family house with potential and an established garden within the town.
The house stands in a well established location off Windmill Hill about three quarters of a mile to the south of the High Street. Much of the appeal of the popular market town of Alton is its location amidst fine Hampshire countryside between the regional towns of Farnham, Basingstoke and Winchester. The historic market town of Alton has a good range of high street shops, senior schools, further education college, Waitrose, Alton convent, sports centre, two outlying golf courses and mainline station to London Waterloo. Windmill Hill is particularly well placed in the town within reach of nearby countryside and also the High Street. In addition, the A31 provides a route to the A3 and M3 which links to London, the south west and beyond.
The mature grounds are a particular feature of the house and provide an established and secluded setting with a principally south-west aspect to the rear. The garden to the rear includes areas of lawn, well stocked borders and a variety of young and mature trees. A private tarmac driveway provides ample parking and access to the garage.
