From a country lane, a long drive gives access to this charming family house which has a lovely secluded setting on the edge of Hambledon Common. The house is Grade II listed, with origins dating back to the 16th century with beautifully restored timbers and exposed Tudor brick giving abundant charm and character. There are two stunning open fireplaces. In recent years, sympathetic internal alterations have been made to provide excellent family accommodation. The rooms are all well-proportioned with large windows giving plenty of light and there are good ceiling heights. The family kitchen/breakfast room lies at the heart of the house and features a magnificent central island, an Everhot Range, and there's plenty of room for the dining table too. A door leads to an excellent boot room, where there is also a small secondary kitchen and a cloakroom. Upstairs, the bedrooms are all very well proportioned and have a lovely rural outlook over the garden and the common beyond.
