Full description

Exciting opportunity to renovate an attractive brick and flint house in 3.5 acres of grounds.


Cricket Close House is set on the fringes of Northington Down, which is on the edge of the well regarded Candover Valley and boasts several excellent pubs, rural pursuits and the popular annual Grange Park Opera. The market town of Alresford is about 5 miles away with a variety of day to day amenities, independent shops and doctor's surgery, whilst Winchester (8 miles) offers comprehensive shopping, entertaining and cultural facilities.


Cricket Close House is a most attractive brick and flint property which now presents an opportunity for the next owner to renovate and extend the house, subject to the necessary planning permissions. Accommodation comprises a reception hall, drawing room, sitting room, study, kitchen/dining room, utility area and cloakroom on the ground floor. On the first floor, the master bedroom is spacious and enjoys a dressing area and en suite bathroom. There are three further bedrooms and a family bathroom, all of which enjoy extensive views across the property's grounds and further afield.

Approached over a cattle grid and through its own 2 acre paddock, Cricket Close House sits in the middle of its gently sloping plot with an additional 1.5 acres of formal gardens. In addition to a driveway and detached garage, there are formal lawn areas to the south and east of the house, a terrace and swimming pool immediately to the rear, as well as a lavender field and tennis court, although both the pool and court would need
some attention before use.

Acreage: 3.5 Acres


Directions - From the Winnal roundabout in Winchester (M3/A34/A272 junction), proceed north onto the A34, bearing right onto the A33 through Kings Worthy.

The entrance to Cricket Close House will be found after a short distance on the left hand side across a cattle grid.
