A fine and beautifully presented Victorian family home with part tile hung elevations, full of character, with exposed beams and feature fireplaces, forming part of what used to be The Red Lion Inn, a strategic watering hole for travellers making the journey between London and Portsmouth. The house has been altered over the years and now provides very comfortable living space, with a fabulous farmhouse style kitchen with extensive cupboards, granite work surfaces and central island, integrated dishwasher, American style fridge and an oil fired Aga. The painted wood floors continue into the sitting room which has a wood burning stove. The sash windows were replaced in recent times and are double glazed. There are 5 bedrooms on the first floor, one of which is used as a dressing room. There is planning permission for a two storey extension, which will extend the main bedroom and create an en-suite, and reconfigure the ground floor to incorporate the attached store room off the dining room. This will create even more versatile living space.
