Barton End is in the revered Lenten Street area lying between the historic town centre and the open expanse of the water meadows. This select residential development consists of 21 houses within 5 terraces, and 4 conversion apartments. Unusually for this old market town nestling in the Wey Valley, Barton End commands a level setting to the west of the High Street. The town centre includes a diverse range of shops, M & S Simply Food Store, Waitrose, Sainsbury's store, Westbrooke Gardens, hotels and restaurants, weekly and specialist open air market events, a library, community centre, museum and gallery, churches of several denominations and a station with commuter rail service to London Waterloo. Further local landmarks include Alton College, bowls clubs, doctor's surgeries, a sports centre, the Watercress Steam Railway line, and 2 golf courses on the outskirts. Open countryside is within ½ mile of the house.
The apartment is full of character and charm and retains many of the features inherent of a building of this period, with high ceilings and large windows to most rooms. Internally the property has been sympathetically decorated throughout. The entrance hallway leads to both bedrooms, the luxury bathroom with roll top slipper bath and the spacious, bright and airy sitting room. The kitchen is well appointed with fitted fridge freezer, Neff washing machine and Aga module with gas hob and two electric ovens. Outside there is a garage in a nearby block with a further space for each property, although these are not specifically designated. Further features of this stunning apartment include gas fired central heating and a cellar storage area.
Barton End House is believed to originally date back to circa 1860 and is formerly the town Registry Office. Barton End was constructed by well regarded local builders Hollybourne Developments Ltd, including the conversion of this property into four luxury apartments. From the moment you enter there is a lovely feeling of space and grandeur. Located on the first floor the property enjoys beautiful views over the well attended and established gardens that have been frequent winners of Alton In Bloom.
The property is approached via a private road leading to the front of Barton End House, communal parking area and garage. The apartment enjoys views over the communal grounds. The grounds are a particular feature of Barton End and are mainly laid to lawn with several young and mature trees and has been a frequent winner of Alton In Bloom. Please note that each property in Barton End pays an annual communal gardens charge of £185.
The garage is in the row of the block of six on the left hand side with metal up-and-over door. Each property in Barton End also has a further parking bay although these are not specifically allocated.
Heading away from the town centre on Lenten Street, Barton End will be found on the left hand side being the next turning after Westbrooke Road.
