Full description

Occupying an highly sought after level setting adjacent to the town centre, a carefully maintained 3 bedroom Georgian style house combining a Southerly courtyard garden with a green front outlook also with a garage.

Description 
Built in the mid 1970s by well known local builders, Hollybourne Developments, the property is in a terrace of 4 houses within a select private development adjoining one of Alton's finest streets, Lenten Street. Barton End consists of similar houses on three sides of the lawned communal grounds with an historic period detached building in the centre converted into apartments. The unrivalled views and aspect are complemented by uPVC double glazing, Classique style panelled internal white doors with brass finished handles, a refitted white suited shower room and cleverly revamped kitchen, and a conservatory spilling onto the sunny part walled courtyard garden to the rear. There is also a gas heating system with radiators (thermostatic valves to the bedrooms) and a replacement boiler, cavity wall insulation, fanlights to most of the windows and uPVC roofline products.

Location 
High on quality and convenience, Barton End is a revered setting being not only adjacent to Alton's shops and town facilities but also to streamside walks in the neighbouring water meadows and the serene pleasures of Westbrook Gardens, which includes a bowls club and organised seasonal events. Amidst Jane Austen country, Alton has major and family shops, stores such as M&S, Waitrose, Sainsbury's, Boots and Aldi, a station (Waterloo line), library, museum and gallery, churches of several denominations, interest societies and a choice of restaurants, inns and hotels. There is also Alton College, an intriguing network of town footpaths, Alton Sports Centre and, on the outskirts, 2 golf courses.
