A spacious and handsome detached barn occupying an exceptional southerly facing location with stunning rural views.
The barn is full of character and is beautifully appointed with well-proportioned rooms and large windows providing space and light throughout. The careful reconstruction of the original 17th Century barn has created a very interesting and versatile family home whilst still retaining all of the inherent character of the original building with a wealth of exposed oak timbers.
The very generous accommodation takes full advantage of the character and history of the building and is set around a large galleried dining room. This is a magnificent room with floor to ceiling windows and double doors opening out to the south east facing garden together with a large landing and a wonderful exposed oak frame. The galleried landing extends into the family room/study providing additional and versatile living space. The drawing room, with an inglenook fireplace and wood burning stove, is set to the ground floor with double doors to the dining room and also out to the garden. The accommodation is complemented by a bespoke kitchen/breakfast room with an island, fitted cabinets, granite work surfaces and a terracotta tiled floor. There is also a utility room and ground floor cloakroom.
There are four bedrooms and three bathrooms including the principal bedroom with an en suite bath/shower room. Of note, each of the bedrooms to the first floor have beautiful vaulted ceilings. In addition, the further flexible accommodation includes a self-contained annexe comprising a bed/sitting room with a small kitchen area and adjoining shower room.
The barn stands within attractive landscaped grounds with outstanding rural views.
The barn has an ideal setting combining stunning open rural views yet being close to the centre of the village. The village is set amidst fine Hampshire countryside and has an active community with a public house, church, hall and St Mary's primary school. The popular market town of Alton provides a good range of individual shops together with weekly and specialist markets, Waitrose food shop, Sainsbury’s and M & S Simply Food, cinema, sports centre, two secondary schools, sixth form college and railway station to London Waterloo.

In addition, the Cathedral city of Winchester to the south and the large regional town of Basingstoke to the west provide a wider range of facilities, mainline railway stations and access to the M3.
The very attractive landscaped grounds are a very special feature of the property and provide a beautiful setting with a broad area of lawn with well stocked flower and shrub borders and a variety of specimen trees. A broad terrace to the rear is ideally placed to provide a perfect outside seating area with far reaching views over open countryside. A shingle pathway leads to a further attractive seating area overlooking the garden.
