5 bedroom detached house for saleMedstead Road, Beech, Alton, Hampshire
The Main House
Buzzards Drift was built to a Scandia Hus design for the vendors in 2008 with particular attention to the generous proportions of the reception rooms and bedrooms.
From the spacious entrance hall, with stairs to the first floor, double doors open to the principal reception rooms. The sitting room, with its restored Victorian fireplace and timber surround has double doors opening to the garden. The kitchen/breakfast room/family room is a wonderfully adaptable space and over 33ft long. The comprehensively equipped kitchen area with integral microwave/oven/grill, ceramic hob with stainless steel hood over and 1.5 ceramic sink is divided from the family area by a wide breakfast bar. A brick chimney breast houses a wood burning stove and triple folding doors (with electric canopy over) open to the expanse of sandstone terrace. At the end of the room double doors open to the conservatory.
The dining room with its charming southerly facing square bay window has a further restored Victorian fireplace housing a gas coal effect fire. There is a study and well fitted utility room, including a four plate gas hob, and access through the back door to the drive.
On the first floor, the master bedroom is of generous proportions with fitted wardrobes and its en suite bath/shower room. French doors open to a balcony to enjoy the aspect across to Bushy Leaze woodland.
There are four further bedrooms, two with en suite shower rooms and bedroom 5 is currently a study/workroom.
A particular feature of the property is extensive storage space including eaves storage, fitted wardrobes and, the loft, with a pull-down ladder onto the galleried landing.
Built at the same time as the original house, the vendors converted the loft area in 2012 to further accommodation with its own entrance, a 21ft x 21ft bedsitting room with stainless steel sink. The focal point pebble stone-effect electric fire is wall hung together with two radiators heated from a Calor gas-fired boiler. There is also a separate shower room. Below is the three bay garage with two up-and-over doors.

The very attractive and active village of Beech is surrounded by fine Hampshire countryside within an unspoilt wooded valley yet only a couple of miles or so of the market town of Alton.
The village has a very strong community with a church and village hall with a full calendar of events. There are a number of foot and bridle paths ideal for country pursuits. The popular market town of Alton provides a good range of individual shops together with weekly and specialist markets, cinema, sports centre, Sainsbury and Waitrose supermarkets, two secondary schools, a Sixth Form College and station to London Waterloo.
The original acre garden has been divided into two equally sized plots with the area belonging to 108 enclosed on the southern boundary by a post and rail fence. The house is accessed via a shared drive which leads up to the house and expanse of level parking area next to the garage.
Steps and the drive lead up to a further area of parking and the front door. To the western side of the house is an attractive expanse of Indian sandstone paving with further paving leading around the conservatory and beyond. The garden extends above this area with lawn broken by mature hardwood, fruit trees and conifers.
