INTRODUCTION A rare opportunity to view this beautiful Grade II listed village house that is believed to date back to the 16th century, having had additions in both the 18th and 19th centuries. The property is perfectly located in the centre of the village, nestled along a pretty cobbled street which leads up to the village church of St Peter and St Paul. It comes with many period features, including fireplaces, exposed beams, cupboards and brickwork. Accommodation on the ground floor comprises a 24ft drawing room, a separate dining room and kitchen. On the first floor there are two double bedrooms and two bathrooms, with two further bedrooms on the second floor. Additional benefits include a flint barn comprising a 31ft main room with two rooms above with annexe potential, subject to the relevant planning consents, and a conservatory.

Hambledon is situated in the beautiful Meon Valley and in the very heart of the South Downs National Park. The village is surrounded by sweeping farmland and woodland from which there are many beautiful walks and bridal ways. The village is known as 'The Cradle of Cricket' and it is thought that the Hambledon Club, one of the oldest cricket clubs known, was formed around 1750. The village has around 400 households with just under 1000 residents. The pretty market towns of Bishops Waltham and Wickham are just minutes away. Winchester, Chichester and Portsmouth are just half an hour away, as is Southampton Airport and all main motorway access routes are easily accessible. Southwest Trains' Petersfield station, connecting to London Waterloo in one hour, is only about ten minutes' drive away. Hambledon Primary School was recently rated as 'Outstanding' by Ofsted and the parish church dates from the 13th century, built on the site of an 11th century Saxon church, adding much to the village's charm and character.
 

INSIDE The attractive period front door leads directly through to the drawing room which has three sash windows to the front and an open fireplace with inset wood burning stove with fitted cupboard to the side and shelving above. The room has some attractive period panelling and opens into a dining area which also has panelling to one wall and a coat closet. A door to one side leads through to an inner hallway which has a period exposed brick floor, stairs leading to the first floor and a door that leads through to a good size dining/breakfast room. This room has two windows and a door enjoying views over the rear garden, an attractive fireplace with inset patterned tiling and a fitted cupboard. A door to one side of the room leads down to the cellar whilst a further door leads through to the kitchen which has been fitted with a matching range of pine wall and base units with cupboards and drawers under. There is a window to the rear enjoying views over the garden, an electric double oven with Range style cooker, one and a half bowl sink unit, plumbing space for a dishwasher, washing machine and further appliance space. The cellar, which is also a good size room, has a window to the front, exposed brick flooring and power and light.

On the first floor landing there is a door leading through to the master bedroom which has a bay window overlooking the rear garden, a range of fitted wardrobes along one wall and a fireplace. A door to one side of the room leads through to an en-suite with double shower cubicle, wash hand basin, WC and a fireplace with inset shelving and heated towel rail. Bedroom two, which is also a good size double room, has two sash windows to the front, a wall light and a fireplace. Also on this floor is a family bathroom with a sash window to the front, a panel enclosed bath with shower attachment over, wash hand basin, WC, bidet and a floor to ceiling cupboard.

OUTSIDE To the rear of the property there is a beautiful, tiered garden which although mainly paved, has several raised borders which have been stocked with a variety of flowers, trees and shrubs. At the end of the garden there is a large, detached flint barn which shares a large window and wall with an attached conservatory. The barn itself is 31ft in length and has three windows to the front, as well as a wash hand basin to one corner. The room also has original exposed beams, with one end of the barn being used as a garden store. A staircase then leads up to two rooms on the first floor which were previously used as offices.
