Property Description

Full description

Bedecked with characteristics from its historic past yet creating an atmosphere of fine contemporary living, an impressive detached converted coach house offering a 3/4 bedroom layout overlooking lovely South Westerly facing gardens.

Description 
This captivating property of great individuality and character is highly convenient for not only access on foot to the town (High Street within 0.6 mile) and nearby countryside but also strategically for road routes leading to neighbouring major towns, the M3 and the Thames Valley. Believed to date from circa 1860 as the coach house to Westbank, a major period house nearby, the property was ingeniously converted to a dwelling in 1953. Important characteristics include fireplaces, high ceilings and stripped pine latch doors downstairs, exposed joinery and, upstairs, ledged and braced colour washed pine latch doors. The ground floor is designed for easy living and entertaining with 3 separate access points spilling out onto the fine broad landscaped gardens. For present day convenience, there is uPVC double glazing including fanlight top openers and a gas heating system with most radiators incorporating TRVs.

Location 
Gently elevated away from the road and opposite water meadows, the property has direct access to the town centre and the Market Square via Lenten Street. There are footpaths through the meadows around the town and out to neighbouring countryside. Noted for its historic connections with the English Civil War and Jane Austen (nearing 200 year celebrations), Alton is a Hampshire market town nestlng in the Wey Valley and has High Street shops, stores such as Waitrose, M&S and Sainsbury's, primary, senior and Convent schools, Alton College of FE, a station (Waterloo Line) and a busy programme of town events and markets.
