A handsome individual detached family house standing in a commanding edge of village location with lovely views towards Shortheath Common. The house was built in 2005 with skill and sympathy to complement and take advantage of the mature edge of the village setting. The generous living accommodation is set around a central dining hall and includes a large triple aspect sitting room with a fireplace and double doors to the garden. There is also a study. The accommodation is beautifully complemented by a triple aspect kitchen/breakfast room with a four oven Aga and adjoining utility area. To the first floor, there are five bedrooms, the principal bedroom having a dressing area and en-suite shower room. In addition, there are four further bedrooms and two further bathrooms. Special thought was given during the design and build of the house to create an exceptional family home with bright and well-proportioned accommodation together with under floor heating to the ground floor, double glazed windows and oak style internal doors. Importantly, the property benefits from a BT Ultrafast Full Fibre connection with advertised download speeds of potentially 300Mb, subject to contract (source BT plc website). Please note that the vendor of this property is related to an employee of Hamptons International.
The house occupies a very special location with views towards Shortheath Common, a protected area of special scientific interest, providing ample opportunity for many country pursuits. The active village of Oakhanger has a church, public house, village hall and central play area. The village of Selborne is renowned for its association with Gilbert White and has a shop/post office, primary school and a public house. The market towns of Alton and Petersfield have a range of High Street shops, weekly and specialist markets, sports centres and schools. The A3 is at Greatham and there are mainline stations at Liphook and Alton providing a route to Waterloo.
The house is approached via a long sweeping drive providing parking for several vehicles and access via a pair of electric gates to a detached double garage. The garden to rear has been landscaped with areas of lawn, well-stocked flower and shrub borders and several young and mature trees including an elder and fig. A paved terrace extends across the full width of the rear of the house and provides an ideal outside seating area. The land to the front of the house forms part of the overall property although it is classified as common land.
