History and character enrich this charming 17th Century Grade II Listed cottage that has seen much enhancement to establish a four double bedroom home that caters to modern lifestyles.

Location Eversley is a village and civil parish in the Hart District of North East Hampshire, 13 miles North East of Basingstoke with its northern boundary formed by the River Blackwater. Eversley means 'Wild Boar Clearing' and the boar is the symbol of the village, as shown on the village sign. The parish contains a number of hamlets: Eversley Village (sometimes called Eversley Street), Eversley Centre, Eversley Cross, Lower Common and Up Green. The author Charles Kingsley (The Water Babies and Westward Ho!) was rector of the parish for 31 years and is buried in the church yard of St Mary's Church.

The village has good amenities with a village shop, four public houses, a church and a primary school (Charles Kingsley's School). There are cricket and football teams with Eversley Cricket Club being one of the oldest in Hampshire, a river and some wonderful countryside. 

The Property With origins dating back to the 17th century, The Old House is a charming Grade II Listed four double bedroom home with an endearing sense of character and captivating history.

Original features such as leaded light windows, exposed beams and oak panelling have been well preserved throughout the home that has also been subject to numerous enhancements over the years and even centuries. From this, has materialised a characterful home that exudes charm yet also delivers to modern day living. The home features beams and fireplaces, whilst benefitting from a 20ft modern kitchen breakfast room, with built in appliances and there is an en suite shower room to the master bedroom.

An extension in the Georgian period, saw the development of the dining room. Wall panelling, sash windows with wooden shutters, a window seat and a feature marble fireplace alongside which lies a built-in domed wig cupboard complement the space. All of these features are typical to the Georgian era and give the home an alluring character. This lovely home also presents a comfortable lounge with an eye catching open fireplace.

The property is also said to have connections with Reverend Charles Kingsley, the 19th century author, preacher and reformer, who was also a Rector at Eversley's St Marys Church for 31 years. This may account for panelling that can be found along the landing, which emulates that of the refurbished church.

The home has preserved other notable features, including original leaded light windows, fireplaces to three of the bedrooms, a salt cellar and a lathe and plaster ceiling in the kitchen.  

The Grounds The Old House is situated in the Eversley Street conservation area and has an attractive outlook. Decorative barge boards complement the front and side of the exterior. A dwarf brick wall encloses the front garden, with a paved pathway running centrally through an expanse of shingle.

A recently laid patio runs along the rear of the home, forming the ideal seating area for you to enjoy views over the adjoining fields and orchards. This is also where you will find parking for the property, as shingle continues along the side of the property to the detached double garage and a driveway, providing parking for numerous vehicles.
