Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A very spacious semi-detached central village house, believed to have been built in the early 1900's, with attractive elevations of stone and brick with large sash windows. On the market for the first time in 58 years, this is a very special opportunity to purchase a house of considerable character and charm in the heart of one of Hampshire's most beautiful villages. There are a number of well-proportioned rooms with high ceilings and large windows spread over three floors providing bright and generous accommodation. The large hall provides access to each of the ground floor rooms. The sitting room features an open brick fireplace with a back boiler and bay window overlooking the front garden. The dining room and kitchen are to the rear whilst there is also a rear porch and cloakroom with access to the cellar. There are two well-proportioned bedrooms to the first floor and a family bathroom. Both bedrooms feature fitted wardrobes whilst the family bathroom has been refitted with a cream suite. There are two further bedrooms to the second floor with excellent views over the rooftops of the village. Please note that there is a "flying freehold" over the family bathroom. This is a rare opportunity to purchase a very interesting village house.


The house stands within the conservation area close to the centre of the very pretty and unspoilt village of Selborne. The active village of Selborne stands amidst fine Hampshire countryside with a public houses, shops, 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 and Alton collectively provide a wider range of facilities as well as mainline railway stations to London Waterloo. In addition, the A3 can be accessed at Liss providing a route to London and the south coast.


The house is set behind a small garden with a gate and path leading to the front door. A side path to the right of the house leads to the rear garden which is a real feature of the property. There are a number of flower and shrub borders and an area of lawn. The garden benefits from a principally south-west aspect and has a good degree of seclusion. There is a garage and a large workshop to the rear accessed via the garden and also a private driveway. A fee of £15 per car per year is payable to The Wakes Museum for the use of the driveway.
