A handsome individual detached house of great character occupying a beautiful edge of village location in mature grounds of just over a third of an acre adjoining and with views over Shortheath Common. The house is originally believed to date from the late 1700's and has been carefully extended to create a very appealing and interesting family home whilst still retaining all of its inherent character. The generous and versatile living accommodation features four / five reception rooms and includes a spacious drawing room with an open fireplace, dining room, sitting room and two studies. The large kitchen / breakfast room with an oil fired Aga, pantry and utility room is ideal for everyday family living. The living accommodation is complemented by five bedrooms and two bathrooms on the first floor. There is also a shower room on the ground floor. Of note, there is a very useful studio room which together with the garage and workshop could potentially be converted to create further accommodation, if required and subject to any necessary consents. This is a very rare opportunity to purchase an individual village house with potential to be a lifelong family home.

The historic market towns of Alton and Petersfield have a good range of High Street shops and weekly and specialist markets.
