Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A Grade II Listed thatched house of immense character, believed to date from the 17th Century, standing close to the heart of the village. The house takes full advantage of the features associated with a building of this period and now provides a very fine and interesting home whilst still retaining all of the inherent character of the original building. There are a number of distinctive period features throughout including exposed beams and timbers, old latch doors and a wonderful Inglenook fireplace in the sitting room. Many of the rooms have the benefit of a dual aspect and are larger than first anticipated. The generous living accommodation has been enhanced with the addition of a conservatory/garden room to the rear providing a natural link between the cottage and the garden. The overall accommodation is very flexible with a large principal sitting room and two further reception rooms as well as a garden room/conservatory and fully fitted kitchen. There are three bedrooms to the first floor together with a family bathroom as well as a flexible fourth bedroom and dressing room to the ground floor. This is a very appealing cottage of great character standing close to the heart of this lovely traditional Hampshire village.


The village of Upper Farringdon is set amidst fine Hampshire countryside between the villages of Chawton, East Tisted and Worldham within the South Downs National Park. The village, together with Lower Farringdon has two public houses, church and village hall. The historic and nearby market town of Alton has a good range of High Street shops, weekly and specialist markets, senior schools, further education college, Alton Convent, sports centre, two outlying golf courses and mainline station to London Waterloo.


The garden is a very special feature of the cottage and provides an ideal setting and a good degree of seclusion. The cottage is set behind a post and rail fence and an area of lawn adjoining a shingle driveway providing parking. The garden to the rear has been landscaped to take full advantage of the setting with areas of paved terrace and lawn with mature flower and shrub borders. The terrace directly adjoins the conservatory to the rear and provides an ideal outside seating area together with a further area of decking beneath a pergola. The garden extends around to the side whereupon there is gate access to the front and a further paved area to the far corner.
