This attractive house is situated in a private select development of just 13 properties surrounded by attractive countryside and just one mile from Alresford town centre. Built in 1999 the property has characterful brick and flint elevations sympathetic to its semi-rural setting. Internally the property boasts an excellent range of accommodation totalling 2900 sq.ft. including the large loft storage area which has the potential for conversion providing the appropriate permissions and consents are obtained. The current owners have extended the property with a striking orangery which create a spacious and bright open plan kitchen/dining/family area, ideal for modern day living. There are also three further reception spaces on the ground floor including a 23ft sitting room with a chimney and cassette style fireplace. The two other rooms are used as a study and dining room but could serve various purposes depending on the needs of the buyer. On the first floor there are five bedrooms, two of which benefit from en suite and four of which have fitted wardrobes. There is also a separate family shower room on this level.
The property is set within the select development of Southdowns in an elevated and very desirable position on the fringes of Old Alresford. The market town of Alresford (1.3 miles) is famed for its pretty streets lined with 18th century houses, cottages, boutique shops, independent retailers, cafes, pubs and everyday stores. The River Arle flows through the town and on into the River Itchen with a number of beautiful riverside walks and the watercress meadows nearby. A wider and more comprehensive range of amenities can be found in the nearby Cathedral city of Winchester (8.5 miles). There are a number of excellent educational facilities including Winchester College, St. Swithun’s School, Peter Symonds and Sun Hill primary and Perins secondary schools locally. Winchester mainline railway station offers direct rail access to London Waterloo (about one hour) and junctions 9 & 10 of the M3 motorway give road access to London and the south coast.
The property benefits from one of the largest plots on the development, extending to 0.3 acre. To the front there is off street parking for up to four cars leading to a detached double garage. The majority of the plot lies to the rear of the property and boasts a south westerly aspect. There is a paved seating /dining area immediately adjacent to the property beyond which is a large expanse of lawn screened to two sides by mature hedging providing a high degree of privacy. To the far end of the garden there are specimen trees providing interest and shade from the sun.
