Hamptons International are delighted to be marketing this stunning attached character home occupying a plot of approximately 0.34 of an acre. Situated in the heart of the popular Blue Triangle. Believed to date back to the late 1800s the property was constructed for and occupied by Percy Jennings, son of George Jennings and is decorated with terracotta plaques from the Jennings sanitary ware business.
In recent years the property has been extensively modernised and improved, yet it still retains a wealth of charm and character associated with a home from this period.
Approached via a gravel driveway providing parking for several vehicles. Gates give access to a pretty courtyard leading to the front door. Upon entering there is a sense of space with high ceilings and bright, airy rooms. The front aspect sitting room extends into a bay window at the front of the property further complimented by an open fireplace. For more formal entertaining there is a separate dining room with doors leading out to the garden and another central open fire place. The adjacent kitchen/breakfast room has been fitted to a high standard, with a range of bespoke units under an expanse of granite work-surfaces. There are a range of fitted appliances including a Siemens microwave, oven, warming drawer and induction hob, Neff dishwasher fridge and Insinkerator, in addition there is a tap providing filtered and instant boiling water. There is also a separate utility room with doors leading to both the front garden and rear garden. In later years the property has been sympathetically extended to provide additional accommodation on the ground floor which could be used as a separate annex with its own front door. This area provides a large bedroom, separate shower room and a large family room. The current owners use this as an integral part of the property and found it worked very well for teenage children or homeworkers. The first floor of this property is of equal merit providing three bedrooms, the main bedroom is complimented with a refitted ensuite shower room. There are three further bedrooms in the property served by a refitted family bathroom. Stairs from the first floor landing lead up to a further bedroom on the second floor including extensive eaves storage.
The property occupies a prime position in The Blue Triangle area of Fleet, ideally situated for the vibrant town centre with its extensive shopping and leisure facilities. The area is renowned for its good selection of both state and independent schools including Yateley Manor, Calthorpe Park and St. Nicholas to name a few. Fleet mainline railway station is within one third of a mile and offers services to London Waterloo from 43 minutes whilst the M3 and M4 Motorways are both easily accessible from this location. Towns such as Guildford, Basingstoke and Reading are all within 20 miles whilst the historic market town of Farnham and the picturesque villages of Hartley Wintney and Odiham are a short drive away.
The front garden is predominantly laid to lawn with herbaceous borders and a large gravel driveway. There are a couple of large storage sheds all surrounded with mature trees and fencing. A great deal of thought has been given with regards to the landscaping of the rear garden providing wonderful areas for outside entertaining. There is a large paved and composite decked area providing a wonderful area for alfresco entertaining. Steps lead down to level area of lawn to a second terrace, in addition there is a utility section for composting etc. found at the bottom of the garden.
