A very handsome detached family house occupying a stunning location overlooking open countryside and its own mature grounds of just over 2.5 acres. The house was completed by Bewley Homes in 2003 and specifically designed to complement the beautiful rural location with many of the rooms enjoying lovely views over the principally south and west facing gardens and grounds.
There is a wonderful feeling of space upon entering the house with a large galleried reception hall with double doors opening into each of the principal rooms. The accommodation is beautifully appointed with well-proportioned rooms with generous ceiling heights finished with subtle features including deep skirting boards, attractive cornicing and oak internal doors. This combined with data cabling, double glazing and a Megaflow domestic hot water system has created a very comfortable and appealing family home.
The generous living accommodation includes an elegant triple aspect sitting room with a stone fireplace and wood burning stove, large dining room and family room/study. The house was designed to take full advantage of the setting with French doors to the terrace from the sitting room, dining room and kitchen. The overall living accommodation is ideal for family living and is beautifully complemented by a very large kitchen/breakfast room. The kitchen is set around an island and includes attractive cabinets, integrated appliances (including a refrigerator, freezer and dishwasher), induction range, granite work surfaces and under floor heating. The ground floor accommodation also includes a cloakroom and utility room.
There are five bedrooms and three bath / shower rooms including a very spacious principal bedroom suite with a dressing area and a recently replaced and stylish en suite shower room (2017). Of note, bedrooms two and three have the benefit of a shared en suite shower room.
This is a very impressive, substantial and interesting family home occupying a rarely available location with the considerable benefit of its own private landscaped grounds and woodland of in all just over 2.5 acres.
The house occupies an elevated and commanding position in an unspoilt and attractive rural location about 1 mile to the south west of the village of Farringdon with distant views over the surrounding countryside. The charming village of Farringdon stands amidst fine Hampshire countryside in-between the villages of Chawton, Newton Valance and East Tisted within the South Downs National Park.
The village has an active community and together with Upper Farringdon has two public houses and church. The village of Chawton, renowned for its association with Jane Austen, has a primary school and public house. The popular market town of Alton provides a good range of individual shops together with weekly and specialist markets, Waitrose and M&S Simply Food, cinema, sports centre, two secondary schools, 6th form college and station to London Waterloo. There are also a good range of independent schools with Lord Wandsworth College at Long Sutton and Alton School both within the local area. The A31, at Alton, provides a route to the A3 and M3 linking to London, the south coast and beyond.
The house stands within attractive landscaped grounds providing a beautiful setting and a principally south and west aspect with areas of lawn and light woodland together with well stocked flower and shrub borders, variety of young and mature trees, vegetable garden and a picturesque ‘bluebell wood’. A large semi-circular paved terrace provides an ideal outside seating area and fine views over the grounds to the countryside beyond. There is a brick and timber pergola to the southern end of the house providing an attractive outside seating area.
The house is approached via a pair of electric gates via a paved drive that provides ample parking and access to the double garage and double car barn. Within the grounds there are two garden outbuildings (with power connected to one of the outbuildings). Of note, there are two outside water taps and exterior lighting to the front and rear.
