Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A delightful Grade II Listed detached cottage of great character dating from 1845 together with a beautiful walled garden standing in an idyllic location close to the heart of the village, off Gracious Street. It is understood that the cottage was originally built by Professor Bell for the gardener of The Wakes and the Gilbert White Museum, and so hence the name. The cottage takes full advantage of the features associated with a building of this period with beautiful elevations of local stone and brick beneath a tiled roof. Of note, the cottage has been carefully extended to provide a spacious and versatile layout whilst still retaining all of the inherent character of the original building. The generous living accommodation includes a large sitting room with beams, exposed stone wall and a fireplace with a wood burning stove. The very well proportioned kitchen/dining room is fitted with a full range of cabinets and a gas Rayburn for cooking, hot water and heating. There is also an electric hob and oven. The ground floor accommodation also benefits from a large hall together with a shower room and either a further reception room / study or bedroom. There are two very well-proportioned double bedrooms and a bathroom to the first floor with fine views over the village and garden towards the grounds of The Wakes and the Selborne Hanger.

Situation

Gracious Street is a small, tranquil, rural lane leading out to open country and the village of Newton Valence. The active and thriving village of Selborne stands amidst fine Hampshire countryside with two public houses, shops, post office, church and primary school. The village is also renowned for its association with Gilbert White, the 18th Century naturalist and is surrounded by scenery of outstanding natural beauty lying at the foot of a beech covered hanger within the South Downs National Park. The larger centres of Liss, Alton and Petersfield collectively provide a range of facilities as well as mainline railway stations to London Waterloo. Also, the A3 can be accessed at Liss providing a route to London and the south coast.

Outside

The beautiful garden is a very special feature of the cottage and is principally set within attractive brick and stone walling with borders well stocked with a wide variety of flowering plants and shrubs surrounding a central area of lawn. The front of the cottage is adorned by climbers and mature roses. To the rear, there is a private walled paved courtyard ideal for outside entertaining. The cottage is approached via a pair of timber gates providing access onto a tarmac driveway providing parking and access to an outside store.
