Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This is a delightful period cottage dating from the early part of the 19th Century. The cottage is believed to have originally been the Verger's cottage and is situated adjacent to the Church of St Lawrence's close to the centre of the town. There are a number of period features including interesting tiles to either side of the fire place in the sitting room, which are believed to have been made by the Minton china works in Stoke-on-Trent (part of a design by William Wise in 1879 as a set of 12 known as 'Animals of the farm'). The cottage benefits from a well proportioned double aspect sitting room with lovely views to the rear garden. The kitchen / breakfast room provides a cosy kitchen area and a space for a dining table with a solid fuel stove. There are two well-proportioned bedrooms one of which has an en suite cloakroom. Other features include stripped pine doors, polished wood floorboards, pine fire place surround in bedroom one and brick flooring in the kitchen. This is a rare opportunity to purchase a truly individual home in the centre of the town.

Situation

The cottage stands off a no through road, within the conservation area of the pleasant market town of Alton. It is about a fifth of a mile, via pavements and footpaths, of the High Street and other local facilities. The attractive and popular market town of Alton is conveniently situated amidst fine Hampshire countryside between the regional centres of Guildford, Farnham and Basingstoke. There is a good range of local shops in the High Street together with a selection of schools, further education college, outlying golf courses, library, doctors, dentists and a number of social and cultural activities, together with a mainline railway station connecting to London Waterloo in just over the hour. The A31 provides a link to the A3 and M3 providing a route to London, the south west and beyond.

Outside

The gardens are a delightful feature and comprise well stocked flower borders, a small ornamental pond and an area of lawn together with a paved patio and private seating area which benefits from the evening sun. There is also potential to park a small car (note the kerb has not been dropped).
