About this property

TENURE: Freehold

A delightful Grade II Listed attached house of great history and character occupying a truly tranquil setting complemented by a detached two / three bedroom cottage.

Long Candovers is originally believed to date from the 17th Century and is complemented by Candovers Kiln which provides characterful and spacious detached ancillary accommodation.

Long Candovers retains all of the inherent character of a building of this period. The generous and comfortable accommodation includes a very welcoming entrance hall with exposed beams, flagstone floor and fireplace, triple aspect drawing room with a fireplace, stunning sitting room with an Inglenook fireplace and wood burning stove, dining room with a beautiful exposed stone wall, farmhouse kitchen with a dual plate Aga, five bedrooms and three bath/shower rooms.

Candovers Kiln stands detached from Long Candovers with its own area of garden and driveway. The careful conversion of the original farm building reflects the history of the building with a magnificent double height sitting room with a wood burning stove and attractive arches to each of the windows. The accommodation could be arranged to suit a variety of needs and includes a further reception room (or ground floor bedroom) and kitchen / dining room to the ground floor and two bedrooms and a bathroom to the first floor.

The properties occupy a beautiful untouched country location off a small rural lane with views of the hangers. The small hamlet of Hartley Mauditt stands amidst fine Hampshire countryside just over five miles to the south of Alton in between the villages of Selborne and West Worldham within the South Downs National Park. There is a public house, two churches and a village hall at East and West Worldham. The village of Selborne is about 3.5 miles away and has a public house, shops, church and primary school. The popular market town of Alton has a good range of facilities. Waitrose and M&S, and station to London Waterloo. The surrounding countryside provides ample opportunity for many country pursuits including the nearby Hangers Way. There are strong state schools and a broad range of independent schools with Lord Wandsworth College, Alton School, Bedales, St Swithun’s, Winchester College, Pilgrim’s School, Twyford Prep, Churchers, Edgeborough and Frensham Heights all within the surrounding area.

Long Candovers stands within attractive landscaped grounds providing a beautiful setting with a mature wisteria and tree of heaven. The garden is exceptional and a very special feature of the house with a very well-positioned summerhouse, areas of lawn with mature shrubs providing colour and shape, orchard and a variety of young and mature trees including a fig and quince. A paved circular terrace adjoins the kitchen/breakfast room and provides an ideal outside seating area.

Long Candovers is approached via a five bar gate and a gravelled driveway providing ample parking. The gravelled driveway has shared access with the neighbour. The driveway continues to a further parking area and double garage.

Candovers Kiln can be approached via the same driveway or alternatively independently via a separate driveway to the rear which also provides access to a former stable and barn.
