About this property

TENURE: Freehold

An exceptionally spacious and flexible detached family home standing in mature gardens and grounds of about 2.5 acres. The property was designed to take full advantage of the principally south aspect with well-proportioned rooms with large windows to maximise the light and outlook from each room. The strength of the setting is immediate with views extending from the sitting room to the woodland and open farmland beyond. The generous accommodation includes a double aspect sitting room with a fireplace and wood burning stove, dining room, kitchen and conservatory. The overall accommodation is very flexible and could be arranged to suit a variety of needs. The second kitchen / utility room would enable the creation of a self-contained annexe, if required. In all, there are five bedrooms with an en-suite bathroom and dressing room to the principal bedroom. The further four bedrooms are complemented by a shower room and family bathroom. Importantly, the flexibility of the accommodation allows for the fourth bedroom to be utilised as a further reception room / study, if required.

The property occupies a 'tucked away' and tranquil location adjoining Alton Golf Club just over 1.5 miles to the north of the historic market town of Alton within the parish of Shalden. The village of Shalden has a strong community with a hall and church and is set amidst fine Hampshire countryside in-between the villages of Bentworth and Lasham. The market town of Alton provides a good range of individual shops together with weekly and specialist markets, Waitrose and M&S, cinema, sports centre, two secondary schools, 6th form college, Alton School (independent school for boys and girls) and station to London Waterloo.

The gardens and grounds are a very special feature of the property and extend in all to about 2.5 acres. The landscaped grounds provide a tranquil and magical setting with a pond and areas of lawn together with flower and shrub borders, vegetable garden and fruit cage. A raised paved terrace adjoins the sitting room and provides an ideal outside seating area with beautiful views towards the woodland and open farmland beyond. The woodland has a network of pathways and provides a perfect 'getaway' space for all ages. A private shingle driveway provides ample parking and access to the detached double garage (in need of repair) and outside WC. There are also several further useful outbuildings including two timber sheds, a summerhouse and green house.
