A charming and elegant family home in the beautiful rural parish of Bentworth, with attractive gardens of 0.375 acres, a spacious and versatile annexe, giving total accommodation of over 2,300 sq ft / 213 sq m. The house was built in 2003 in traditional style to complement the local area with bright, well- proportioned rooms, and features such as hardwood sash windows and an open fire. A porch leads to a large reception hall, off which are the double-aspect 18ft / 5.5m sitting room with French windows to a terrace; a separate double aspect dining room /library; and the 23ft / 8m open plan kitchen breakfast room opening into a dining area/family room. This is the cheerful hub of the house, and provides the ideal layout for everyday family living. The adjacent utility room and boot room contain the boiler and under-floor heating controls. Upstairs there is a generous well-lit landing and spacious family bathroom, plus four double bedrooms, all with built-in wardrobes and under-floor heating, one with an en-suite shower room. The annexe and its adjoining wall form an open, south-east facing courtyard. From it a small entrance hall leads to a shower room and a good-sized room now used as an office; while upstairs there is a large, bright room with storage space now laid out as a studio bedroom.
The property is within the tranquil rural hamlet of New Copse with its network of footpaths, and is surrounded by paddocks and farmland with good views and wide open skies (sunsets a speciality). It lies between the village centres of Bentworth (1.3 miles) and Medstead (0.9 miles ). Bentworth has a strong and active community with a public house, church, hall and highly regarded primary school. Medstead is also an active village with church, public house, primary school, local shops and a number of village clubs and societies. The market towns of Alton and Alresford together with the regional centres of Basingstoke and Winchester provide a comprehensive range of facilities including schools for all age groups as well as mainline railway stations to London Waterloo (from 49 mins from Basingstoke).
The house stands near the centre of its 0.375 acres of land, separated from Trinity Road by a tall hedge and trees; its driveway leads to a wide sweep in front of the house and the two garages, with ample parking. To the front (N) the garden is mainly lawn and shrubs; to the rear (S) there is lawn with shaped beds for flowers and shrubs; the paved terrace outside the sitting room; some productive apple trees; the open courtyard beside the annex; and a greenhouse.
