Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A charming, delightful and spacious detached Victorian cottage of great character standing in an exceptional location with long rural views and beautifully landscaped grounds of just over 1.25 acres. The cottage was originally the village school and has been carefully improved by the existing owners to provide a wonderful family home whilst still retaining all of its inherent character with open fireplaces and well-proportioned rooms. The light and spacious accommodation is very well-appointed and includes a twin aspect sitting room and a large dining room each opening out to the south-west facing terrace. The two principal rooms are interlinked and provide an ideal layout for entertaining. There is also a twin aspect study. The living accommodation is complemented by a lovely kitchen / breakfast room with a dual plate Aga and French doors opening out to the garden. There are four bedrooms and a family bathroom including a principal bedroom with views over the rear garden and an en-suite shower
room and dressing area.

This is a rare opportunity to purchase an individual and interesting family home in a tranquil yet convenient rural location with the considerable benefit of no onward chain.

Situation

The cottage stands within the picturesque small rural hamlet of West Worldham with its historic 12th century church, St Leonards. The villages of West and East Worldham stand amidst fine
Hampshire countryside about three miles to the south of Alton in between the villages of Selborne and Chawton. The South Downs National Park is close by and provides ample opportunity for many
country pursuits. Together East and West Worldham have an active community with a public house, two churches and a village hall. Selborne is about 3 miles away with 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. Of note, the village of Chawton has a number of period houses and a long association with Jane Austen. The popular market town of Alton has a good range of
individual shops and stores including Waitrose and Marks and Spencer Food together with weekly and specialist markets. There is also a cinema, sports centre and railway station to London Waterloo. There are also a good range of schools within the local area including Selborne Primary School and Chawton Primary School. Secondary schools include Amery Hill and Eggars in Alton. There are also a range of independent schools including Lord Wandsworth College in Long Sutton, Alton Convent, Edgeborough in Frensham and Churchers in Petersfield. In addition, Alton has a very well renowned 6th form College.

Outside

The gardens and grounds are a very special feature of the cottage and have been landscaped to take full advantage of the superb south-west facing setting with a paddock, orchard and formal
areas of garden. A paved terrace and BBQ area provide an ideal outside seating area and adjoin the kitchen, sitting room and dining room. The formal area of the garden is set around a level lawn with herbaceous borders and a variety of specimen shrubs and trees including magnolia, beech and oak together with a thatched summer house and pond. The grounds extend into an
orchard and extensive vegetable garden with cherry, apple and plum trees. There is a paddock at the far end of the grounds with two useful storage buildings. Of note, there are fine views from many parts of the garden over the surrounding countryside.
