Browns is a fine example of a most attractive detached Grade II listed town house, in the heart of this sought-after, popular Georgian market town. The property dates back to the 16th century and is constructed of lime washed brick under a clay tiled roof with tile hung gable end elevations. The accommodation is arranged over three floors and has been tastefully updated by the current owners to create a charming and elegant home with a wealth of inherent character. Browns provides beautifully proportioned accommodation, extending to 3,060 sq ft, with some wonderful period features.
The property is approached through the large welcoming reception hall with its wide staircase leading to the first floor and doors to the principal reception rooms. The drawing room is a particularly impressive space with a stone fireplace with elegant gas fire and doors leading out on to the beautifully landscaped garden. The 17 ft sitting room has a wood burner, exposed wooden beams and a door leading to the study. The dining room is of excellent proportions and provides a perfect space for entertaining, with a door leading to the garden. From here, a staircase leads down to a large dry cellar and access through to the kitchen/breakfast room. The kitchen/breakfast room has been beautifully fitted with a range of bespoke units with fitted gas Aga and a vaulted timber ceiling. Access from here leads through to the utility room which has matching units and an outside door to the rear. On the first floor are three excellent bedrooms, two of which have adjoining shower rooms and a family bathroom. Two further loft rooms and a shower room complete the accommodation.
The property can be approached from the street or via a gravelled driveway which terminates at the double carport. The carport has a 16ft room above which would lend itself very well to a home office, studio or substantial storage. There is also a greenhouse to the rear of this building. From the parking area, there is access through to the walled garden which lie directly to the rear of the property providing a most attractive and private setting. The garden has been delightfully landscaped with beautiful areas of flowers and shrub borders, a water feature and flagstone terraced seating areas. An attractive curved brick and flint wall surrounds the property on its north and eastern side and the garden continues with a terrace that leads to the south side of the kitchen, another secure area. This outside space perfectly complements the accommodation in the house and, whilst being situated in the centre of Alresford, it offers a high degree of privacy.
52 Broad Street is situated on the eastern side of Broad Street in the Georgian market town of Alresford, literally a stone's throw from the town’s amenities which include a range of shops, public houses and restaurants. The area is renowned for its beautiful countryside with superb rural walks in the area including along the river and into the Itchen Valley.
The Cathedral city of Winchester lies approximately 7.5 miles to the west with a wider range of facilities. There are bus services to the mainline rail links at Winchester and Alton, and the M3 (Junctions 7 and 9) is within easy access. Southampton International Airport is approximately 10 miles to the south with many domestic and European destinations.
Schooling in the area is excellent, the preparatory schools of Twyford and Prince’s Mead being within easy reach, as is Pilgrims in Winchester. Winchester also offers St Swithun’s School for Girls, Winchester College and Peter Symonds Sixth Form College. Further away Bedales Preparatory School at Petersfield is an alternative and locally Perins Secondary School has a first-class reputation.
