Property Description

Full description

A quite superb barn conversion in a quintessentially English cottage garden, perched on high and with fabulous views over open countryside. What an absolute cracker Pharaohs House is! This beautifully presented cottage style home really does have to be viewed to be appreciated and is just ready to move into, unpack and start to live. Bursting with character, there are beamed ceilings, flagstone and Maple floors and oodles of charm in every room. The main reception with its' stunning vaulted ceiling is flooded with light from the dual aspect French doors, whilst the wood burning stove with flagstone hearth is perfect for cosy cooler evenings. The kitchen with Aga flows through to the conservatory which brings the garden into the house. The 3 bedrooms are all doubles, one with an ensuite shower room plus there is a cloakroom and the family bathroom really has the wow factor with a fabulous roll top bath. The whole benefits from oil central heating, hardwood double glazing, beautiful landscaped gardens of a little under 1/2 acre. A sweeping driveway leads to a detached double garage and workshop. All in all one of the loveliest homes we have seen in a while.

Agents notes:
Beautifully presented, Pharaohs House was uniquely converted from a barn, stable and hayloft. Surrounded at the rear by native hedging affording privacy whilst retaining views, the gardens are stocked with mature shrubs, trees, roses and perennials. There is an attractive summerhouse and 2 greenhouses – the feature Alton ‘Victorian’ even has a productive vine! The rear patio with pergola is ideal for outside dining, whilst the south facing front sunken courtyard cloaked with Wisteria is a real sun trap.
