Property Description

Full description

Originating as a tithe barn, an endearing 4 bedroom detached character conversion featuring 2 splendid reception rooms and a 1/3rd acre plot with delightful lawned gardens in an easily accessible semi-rural location. High Street, Alton within 1.5 miles.

Description 
Part of an ingenious and intriguing farmyard conversion in the 1970s, the property has a wealth of character displaying exposed beams and natural brickwork with an inglenook style open fireplace and latch pine doors, yet having the convenience of replacement double glazed windows and French doors, a security alarm system and gas heating with radiators. There are fine vistas over the gardens to the rear, whilst the front outlook is over rolling open North Downs countryside opposite. Approached by a long drive to the rear culminating in a garage and parking area, the house enjoys a rather unique setting with the best of the convenience for the town and the joys of the countryside.

Location 
The property is within a splendid farm conversion scheme of a limited number of totally individual detached homes with Jordans Farmhouse adjacent. Lying within the parish of Shalden village, the property is on the country fringes in an area of mainly detached properties of differing ages and designs in large gardens and is strategically placed for access to not only the historic old market town of Alton with its station (Waterloo line), but also road routes to the North leading to the M3 junction 5, Basingstoke, Reading and the Thames Valley. Alton includes varied shops with Waitrose, Sainsbury's, M & S and Aldi stores, a weekly open air market, primary and senior schools, Alton Convent, Alton College and a sports centre among its attributes. The surrounding North Downs countryside presents footpaths, byways and bridleways, village inns, Lord Wandsworth College and gliding at Lasham.
