Property Description

Full description

Located on one of Alton's finest roads, a Georgian style detached 4 bedroom house featuring superb open plan living space in a 1/6th acre garden plot.

Description 
The property was built in 1982 on the edge of a small exclusive scheme consisting of detached houses of varying designs. Importantly, it enjoys a 52' road frontage with the rear garden widening to 71'. Primary characteristics include not only the triple aspect lifestyle dining kitchen with its option of being open plan to the lounge but also the good sized lawned gardens, which are directly accessed by double French doors from both these principal rooms. Additionally, there are several sash windows, panelled internal doors, an en-suite, a recently refitted cloakroom and family shower room and built-in wardrobes to three of the four bedrooms. The gas heating system has individually controlled thermostatic radiators. There is additional outside space with the property benefiting from not only an attached garage but also an adjoining car port.

Location 
The house occupies a much favoured location fronting yet gently elevated back from Kings Road. Kings Road is a broad residential road renowned for its eclectic collection of individual and charming homes lying within 2/3rd mile of the town's High Street. Ackender Wood with its walks, The Butts - an historic green with a neighbouring primary school, French Horn Inn and Watercress steam railway line, and Alton Sports Centre are just some of the attributes in vivinity. This historic Hampshire market town nestling in the Wey Valley provides bespoke and multiple shops, stores such as M&S and Sainsbury's, a station (Waterloo line) with a Waitrose store, two senior and Alton Convent Schools, Alton FE College, local societies, a dance studio, 2 outlying golf courses and open air and specialist market events. The house's setting is strategically placed for routes to towns on the A31 axis as well as Basingstoke, the M3 and the Thames Valley.
