Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The Crown, a former public house, has been cleverly converted to a private house in a delightful hamlet with stunning views of the Hampshire countryside. The original property was believed to have been built around 200 years ago and has been extended to create spacious and characterful living accommodation and five bedrooms.

The use of oak in the property is extensive. Features include oak board flooring, doors and skirting boards in the dining room and the snug, where there is a Clearview wood burning stove housed in an original brick fireplace.

The sitting room, with French windows opening onto the terrace at the back of the house is a well-proportioned room, with plenty of space for the grand piano (not included). The kitchen (with a breakfast area) again has continued the oak timber theme with handmade units and worktops. To one side is a butler sink set in granite and doors open to a utility room. There is a boot store by the rear entrance. Below the dining room is a cellar. There is also a study.

On the first floor the main bedroom is particularly bright with a sky light and two full length windows. There are handmade purpose built solid oak wardrobes along one wall. En suite shower room. Off the landing is the family bathroom and a shower room with a ‘Jack & Jill’ door with additional access for bedroom 2. There are three further bedrooms.

Basingstoke 7 miles, Alresford 9 miles, Alton 9 miles, Winchester 20 miles, mainline rail stations at Basingstoke 7 miles and Micheldever 7.5 miles, M3 (Junction 7) 3 miles.

The Crown is approached through gates to an expanse of gravel drive with steps leading up to the oak front door.

The attractive garden and well stocked grounds surround the house. From the extensive drive, paths lead past a paved patio partly enclosed by a low wall. From here steps lead up to a further paved area and the lawn is surrounded by young fruit trees. Mature shrub borders lead on towards a level ‘croquet’ lawn bounded by mature lime trees. At the back of the house is a tile roofed store, as yet unrestored. There is also Planning Permission granted for a double garage.
