This impressive home is just one of a small group of properties surrounded by the lovely countryside. The house extends to over 2050 sq. ft. (including the garage) and is well laid out over two floors. An inviting entrance hall gives access to all of the reception areas, including the dual aspect formal dining area to the front of the property. To the rear of the house there is an impressive sitting room of almost 18ft featuring an open fire with solid Bath stone surround as a focal point. French doors connect to the conservatory which provides a wonderful outlook over the gardens. The modern kitchen comprises cream shaker style units with solid wood work tops and a range of integrated appliances. This area also accommodates a breakfast table and is open plan to the family area which looks on to the rear garden. A useful utility room gives access to the garden and a w/c completes the accommodation on the ground floor.
On the first floor there are four bedrooms including a master suite with dressing room with fitted storage and an en suite bathroom. Bedrooms two and three also benefit from fitted storage and along with the fourth bedroom, are served by the family bathroom on this level. The bedrooms to the rear boast elevated views over the garden and the fields beyond.
The property is set within the select development of Southdowns in an elevated and very desirable position on the fringes of Old Alresford. The market town of Alresford (1.3 miles) is famed for its pretty streets lined with 18th century houses, cottages, boutique shops, independent retailers, cafes, pubs and everyday stores. The River Arle flows through the town and on into the River Itchen with a number of beautiful riverside walks and the watercress meadows nearby. A wider and more comprehensive range of amenities can be found in the nearby Cathedral city of Winchester (8.5 miles). There are a number of excellent educational facilities including Winchester College, St. Swithun’s School, Peter Symonds and Sun Hill primary and Perins secondary schools locally. Winchester mainline railway station offers direct rail access to London Waterloo (about one hour) and junctions 9 & 10 of the M3 motorway give road access to London and the south coast.
The property enjoys a plot totalling approximately a quarter of an acre backing on to open fields. The gardens lie to the rear of the property and include a paved terrace immediately adjacent to the house. Beyond the terrace is a raised expanse of lawn attractively edged with well stocked beds and established plants and shrubs. There is a timber shed in the rear garden whilst to the side of the house a driveway provides off road parking for two cars and leads in turn to the attached garaging.
