A handsome and very spacious wing of a former manor house of great character and history standing in a convenient location for the town with views. The house retains all of the inherent character of a building of this period with well-proportioned rooms, high ceilings and large sash style windows. The feeling of space is immediate with a large galleried entrance hall with a beautiful staircase. The generous accommodation is far larger than initially anticipated and includes an elegant twin aspect sitting room with a fireplace and wood burning stove. There is also a dining room with double doors opening out to a principally south west facing area of garden. The living accommodation is complemented by a farmhouse style kitchen with a dual plate gas fired Aga. The property also has the considerable benefit of a tanked cellar. There are four bedrooms to the first floor including a principal bedroom with an en-suite shower room. There is also a separate family bathroom. This is a rare opportunity to purchase a period house of character with off road parking and a mature garden within the town.
Outside The well-established garden is a particular feature of the house and provides a secluded setting with a mature sycamore and yew tree. The garden is mainly laid to lawn with a paved path to the front door which extends to the side and rear terrace. There is an ideal outside seating area adjoining the kitchen. An additional area of garden is set off the dining room and enjoys a principally south west aspect with a paved terrace and an area of lawn. The house is approached via a five bar gate and a shingle driveway providing parking for several vehicles and access via a gate to the garden.
Situation The house occupies a favoured residential setting just over a mile and a half from the High Street towards the end of no through road with views. The historic market town of Alton has a good range of High Street shops, Waitrose food shop, M&S, schooling for all age groups, further educational college, Alton Convent School, sports centre, two outlying golf courses and a mainline railway station connecting to London Waterloo.
