Tenure: Freehold

The Old Barn is a pretty Grade II Listed cottage dating back, we believe in part to the 16th century with later additions. The cottage has an interesting history having been the village tea rooms from the 1920s to the 1970s catering for cycling teas in the early days and then used as a venue for village wedding receptions. There is a wealth of character throughout the cottage with exposed beams, timbers and brickwork along with open fireplaces and latch doors.

The cottage has been recently re-thatched and the vendors have taken care to enhance the various period details within the property including opening fireplaces. The spacious sitting room is full of exposed beams, brick and timber flooring and the two inglenook fireplaces. The flooring in the snug is also brick and another inglenook fireplace with bread oven. The kitchen has a good range of units, Neff appliances with bamboo worktops over.

A stable door opens into the conservatory with its double door opening onto a garden terrace. The ground floor accommodation is completed with the dining/bedroom4, a study overlooking the garden, a good-sized utility room and the bathroom and shower room.

On the first floor the dual aspect main bedroom has a built in wardrobe and a large walk in loft area. There are also a further two double interconnecting bedrooms.

Farringdon is a small village in Hampshire about four miles south of the market town of Alton on theA32. The village is in two parts, Lower and Upper Farringdon, linked by Shirnall Hill, a tree lined lane that rises from the eastern side of the A32.

The village has a church, two public houses and a village hall and the particular landmark of Massey's Folly designed by the vicar of Farringdon in the 19th century. The village is set in the South Down National Park and within easy reach is the Queen Elizabeth National Park south of Petersfield. In the neighbouring village of Chawton is Jane Austen's house.

More educational and recreational facilities can be found in the nearby towns of Alton, Petersfield, Basingstoke, Farnham, Alresford and Winchester. The village is well placed for communications, lying on the A32 and being within a short distance of the A31 to Winchester, Farnham and Guildford.
For those with outdoor interests there are plenty of bridleways and footpaths through the surrounding countryside and local golf courses.

To the front of The Old Barn there is a gravel driveway providing plenty of parking for several vehicles and giving access to the single garage.

At the rear of the cottage, the enchanting garden has been cleverly landscaped to provide several terraces and patios for 'al fresco' dining. Around the central lawn, the borders are interwoven and enclosed by low box hedging with paths leading down to the summer house. To one side of the garden is a magnificent magnolia tree. There is a hand gate to the rear garden from the drive.
