A spacious individual detached house of character occupying a stunning location with beautiful rural views. The house is believed to date from the early 1900's and has no immediate neighbours. The existing owners have carefully improved the house whilst still retaining the character of a building of this period with bright and well- proportioned accommodation. Features of note include a very spacious twin aspect kitchen/breakfast room (with an adjoining utility area) ideally suited to everyday family living. The kitchen is fitted with a bespoke range of cabinets together with granite work surfaces, butler sink and a range of integrated appliances including an electric hob with extractor over, oven and dishwasher. The generous living accommodation includes a triple aspect drawing room with a fireplace, dining room with a wood burning stove, family room and an exceptionally well-positioned sitting room off the kitchen. There are four bedrooms and two bathrooms to the first floor. Of note, one of the bathrooms has been re-fitted with stylish white sanitary ware. The house was extended in 1987 to create a studio / occasional fourth bedroom and is accessed from the sitting room. In addition, further land (up to about 5 acres) is available to purchase by separate negotiation.
The house adjoins farmland and combines the best of both worlds for a young family with the requirement to commute to London. The active village of Selborne is just over a mile and has a public house, shops, church and primary school. The village is also renowned for its association with Gilbert White, the 18th century naturalist and is surrounded by scenery of outstanding natural beauty within the South Downs National Park and lying at the foot of a beech covered hanger. The market towns of Alton and Petersfield provide a wide range of facilities as well as railway stations to London Waterloo.
The garden has been landscaped to provide a variety of areas of interest and take full advantage of the setting with views over the adjoining farmland. There is an octagonal garden seat and a spring fed stream with areas of lawn to either end of the grounds with a wide variety of flowering shrubs and plants all enclosed by hedging with several young and mature trees. There is a paved terrace set to the rear of house providing an ideal outside seating area. Timber shed. There is a driveway adjoining the property and also a further area for parking and storage together with a small open bay barn to the opposite side of the lane.
