An impressive and substantial detached family house situated in a prominent and popular elevated location with mature grounds of about 0.77 of an acre (0.314 ha). The feeling of space is immediate with a large entrance hall which features a splendid mahogany staircase. The extensive and versatile living accommodation includes four very well-proportioned reception rooms. The large sitting room is a particular feature and extends to 28’ x 19’ with views of the rear garden and full width sliding doors leading to an area of decking. In addition, there is also a large drawing room (25’9 x 15’9), dining room and further reception room / fifth bedroom as well as a cloakroom/shower located across the hall. Of note, there is a very useful studio/office to the lower ground floor. This room can be accessed separately from the front drive and is ideal for use as a home office or consultancy room. The kitchen/breakfast room has a connecting door to the dining room and is presented to a very high standard with real wood cabinets and granite work surfaces. Planning permission has been granted to extend the kitchen as shown on the floor plan (EHDC Ref. No. 29140/004). There are four well-proportioned bedrooms and a family bathroom. Two of the bedrooms have the benefit of en-suite facilities. Of note, each of the bath and shower rooms have been refitted in recent years. The house stands within well-established grounds providing an ideal setting and a good degree of seclusion. This is an ideal family home occupying a mature setting in the heart of the village.
The very attractive and active village of Beech with its own Parish Council is surrounded by fine Hampshire countryside within an unspoilt wooded valley between the villages of Bentworth, Medstead and Shalden. The village has a very strong community with a church and village hall. There are a number of foot and bridle paths nearby, while the village of Bentworth, about 3 miles, has a Primary School, two public houses and church. The village of Medstead (about 2 miles) also has shops, a public house and Primary School. The village of Beech stands adjacent to Alton whilst also adjoining fine open Hampshire countryside with a network of footpaths leading towards open countryside.
Alton provides a good range of individual shops and supermarkets together with weekly markets, cinema, sports centre, two secondary schools, 6th form college and station with direct line to London Waterloo.
The house is approached by a meandering tarmac drive which provides ample car parking and turning space for several vehicles. York stone steps lead up to the front door together with flower and shrub borders to either side. The garden to the rear is mainly laid to lawn with mature borders. A decking area off the sitting room provides an ideal outside seating area. The gardens and grounds offer a good degree of seclusion and extend in all to about 0.77 of an acre (0.314 ha).
