Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A very special and spacious home of exceptional character standing opposite The Plestor in the heart of the village of Selborne. This is a unique Grade II Listed house approached via a charming small cobbled courtyard adjoining the village pottery. The house has been thoughtfully improved by the existing owners to create a very interesting family home whilst still retaining all of its inherent character. The feeling of light and space is immediate with oak flooring and sash windows. Features of note include a very impressive sitting room with a vaulted ceiling, exposed timbers, underfloor heating and bi-fold doors opening out to the garden. This is the centrepiece of the house and forms a natural link between the house and garden. The large contemporary kitchen / dining room has a door to the garden and is fitted with a bespoke range of cabinets with a stone work surface, De Dietrich oven, Neff 5 ring gas hob, dishwasher and fridge / freezer. The adjoining utility / cloak room and cellar provide useful additional storage space. Of note, there is also a beautiful sitting room with a sash window and fireplace with a wood burning stove. There are four bedrooms (one en-suite) and a separate family bathroom with a roll top bath set off a large landing with oak floors and incorporating a snug / study area with listed planning permission to create a further a shower room (SDNP/12/01336/LIS). Planning permission was also secured (now expired) to create a lightwell and enlarge the window to the cellar to create a more practical room, if required (SDNP/13/00881/LIS).


The house stands within the conservation area of the very pretty and unspoilt village of Selborne with views of the Hanger. The active village of Selborne has a public house, 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 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 garden is a very special feature of the property and has been landscaped to take full advantage of the setting with fine views over The Wakes gardens towards the Hanger. The garden is mainly laid to lawn with well stocked flower and shrub borders and several young and mature trees. A large paved terrace adjoins the sitting room and provides an ideal outside seating area. Timber shed.
