Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A very spacious and characterful attached house standing in a rarely available and highly sought after village location with unrivalled sweeping views over the Candover Valley. The feeling of space is immediate, with a large central galleried reception hall with exposed beams highlighting the property's 17th Century origins. The generous living accommodation includes a very large double aspect sitting / dining room with a spectacular view and French doors opening out to the garden and fireplace with a wood burning stove. The further living accommodation is very flexible and includes two further family rooms which could be utilised as a sitting room and study/children's play room complemented by a large and airy kitchen with informal dining/ breakfast room with an oil fired Aga, with an adjoining laundry room. A large storage cupboard also provides access to a cellar. There are five bedrooms, four being double rooms and two bathrooms. The spacious landing allows space for a study and / or reading area.

Situation

The rural village of Upper Wield is set amidst beautiful undulating rolling Hampshire countryside between the villages of Medstead, Bentworth and Preston Candover. The villages of Medstead and Preston Candover each have village shops as well as Primary Schools whilst the village of Upper Wield itself is set around an attractive green with a hall and ancient church with an Inn at Lower Wield. The regional towns of Alton and Basingstoke together with the Cathedral city of Winchester provide a comprehensive range of facilities as well as railway stations to London Waterloo (about 50 minutes from Basingstoke). The A31 and M3 provide a route to London, the South Coast and beyond, whilst the A34 provides access a route to the Midlands and the North.

Outside

The house stands within a large mature garden providing a private setting with areas of lawn together with several fruit trees. A paved terrace adjoins the sitting / dining room and provides an ideal outside seating area. A wooden "platform" combines childrens' play equipment with a raised sitting out area commanding spectacular views over the Candover Valley. A private shingle driveway provides ample parking and access to the double garage. There is a brick built outbuilding to the rear of the garage which had planning permission in 2007 (now lapsed) to extend and convert to a studio annex and a further paved sitting out area (50701/FUL).
