Sold STC £483,500

Property Description

Full description

A distinctive Regency style detached house offering 4 bedrooms and an en-suite in the acclaimed Weydale Rise/'racecourse' area with a double garage and good sized Westerly rear garden.

Description 
The property is designed to an attractive symmetry with a proliferation of twin windows and was built in about 1990 by reputable national developers, Bryant Homes to their Richmond design. This is the first time the house will change hands from new and, whilst well cared for, the house is in need of updating. Notable characteristics include the aspect over the rear garden from the drawing room, breakfast kitchen, laundry room and 2 main bedrooms with the accommodation layout allowing independent access to all the rooms from the hall or landing apart from the laundry and en-suite. There is also the benefit of a gas heating system with radiators, most of which incorporate thermostatic valves, internal doors to a white 6 panel design with brass finished handles, moulded architraves and skirting boards, and a security alarm system.

Location 
The house occupies a wide frontage in Epsom Down, which contains 12 further houses of varying detached designs and is set in a network of three closes off The Ridgeway. The neighbourhood is regularly requested by house buyers and referred to as the Racecourse area due to the names of the roads, being on Alton's Southern country outskirts yet within 0.8 mile drive of the High Street (less on foot). To the South is Windmill Hill with rural footpaths and the 18-hole Worldham Golf Club located beyond. An intricate network of town footpaths enables alternative access to the High Street shops and station (Waterloo line). Alton, an historic old market town, also provides in-town Sainsbury's, M&S, Iceland and Boots stores, a Waitrose store by the station, weekly and specialist open air market events, a progamme of outdoor activities, primary and senior schools, Alton Convent, a further education college, health clubs and a sports centre.
