Full description

Occupying an outstanding setting with 3 acres and commanding a broad frontage with a South Westerly rear outlook, a substantial and imposing detached country house offering 5 or more main bedrooms, an annexe bungalow, outbuildings, grounds and grazing.

Description 
This unique property, which has been used for multiple family member occupation over the years, was built in 1954 and extended in 1997-2000, the site of the house having been in the same family ownership since the 1920's. Subject to any relevant planning, building and physical restrictions, there is scope for further improvement and capital enhancement. Centred on an impressive sized reception hall and galleried landing with a library area, the accommodation is notable for not only its size and scale but also the privacy and country atmosphere enjoyed. Characteristics include smooth finished ceilings with coving almost throughout, several low silled windows with timber framed double glazing and quarry tiled sills, 2 fireplaces, several parquet floors and pine panelled internal doors, some of which are glazed. The gas heating system, which has supplementary energy/hot water from the solar panels, is zonal and includes the annexe bungalow.

Location 
Commanding a road frontage of about 325ft (98.98m), Eynsford is high in the Hampshire Hills merging with open countryside yet occupies level ground. Telegraph Lane is a premier road in Four Marks set away from any busy roads on the Southern outskirts. There is a network of footpaths and byways together with Weathermore Copse, a golf course and a garden centre in the neighbourhood with the C of E primary school at the end of nearby Alton Lane. The village also has a range of local shops including a bakers, wine merchants, Co-op and Tesco Express, garage with M&S ware, village hall, bus services, churches, societies and recreational facilities, doctors and vets surgeries, and the Watercress line. Within 4.9 miles drive lies Alton's historic town centre offering major shops such as M&S and Sainsbury's, market events and restaurants. Additionally the town has a station (Waterloo line), Waitrose and Aldi, senior and Convent schools, Alton College and a sports centre....
