Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A very interesting and handsome Grade II Listed detached house of great character standing close to the heart of the town. The house dates from the late 19th Century and enjoys many of the features associated with a building of this period with well-proportioned rooms, high ceilings and large sash windows. Normandy Cottage was designed by the same architect as Alton Infants School and shares many similar gothic features. The property now provides an ideal family home with spacious living accommodation including a sitting room with a central stone fireplace, family room/study and dining room with exposed floor boards. The light and airy accommodation is beautifully complemented by a kitchen/breakfast room fitted with a range of cream fronted cabinets, dishwasher and 5-ring gas range and oven with extractor over. The accommodation to the first floor is of equal merit and includes four double bedrooms, shower room and family bathroom. Of note, there is a beautiful partly walled garden to the rear providing an ideal setting and a good degree of seclusion with a principally south-east aspect. The property also has the considerable benefit of off road parking.


The house stands close to the heart of the town being within only about 0.15 of a mile of the High Street and about 0.2 of a mile from the mainline railway station. The historic market town of Alton has a good range of High Street shops together with a Waitrose food shop and M&S, weekly and specialist markets, schooling for all age groups including a sixth form college and the Alton Convent independent school. Alton also has a sports centre, two outlying golf courses and a mainline railway station to London Waterloo.


The garden is a particular feature of the cottage and is far larger than initially anticipated. The partly walled and secluded garden to the rear has a predominately south-east aspect and is mainly laid to lawn with several young and mature shrubs and a brick paved terrace providing an ideal outside seating area. A shingle driveway is approached via a pair of double gates and provides parking for two vehicles. Timber shed.
