Full description

Tenure: Freehold

We believe that the property dates back to circa 1646 and having then been extended around 1900 and the property was originally three cottages, which we believe were then rented to three separate families for a farthing each - hence its name - Farthing Cottages. The property comes with a wealth of both charm and character in addition to many original features including an array of exposed beams throughout, original fireplaces, doors and even original Tudor panelling in the drawing room. Accommodation on the ground floor briefly comprises a reception/entrance hall with an open fire, family room, drawing room, dining room, inner hallway, beautiful bespoke kitchen/breakfast room and cloakroom on the ground floor. Whilst on the first floor there are then four double bedrooms and a family bathroom complete with a roll top bath. Additional benefits include a driveway providing off road parking for numerous vehicles, garage, double width wood store and tool shed, a beautiful mature rear garden and 24ft games room with a large loft space above, which would make an ideal office for anyone looking to work from home. 

LOCATION The village of Upham has its own popular primary school, church, village hall and pub, even its own brewery. The village is also in a conservation area with the property also benefitting from being directly opposite the recreation ground and due to the village being within the South Downs, is surrounded by some of the most beautiful countryside in Hampshire, with many beautiful country walks on its doorstep along with a network of popular footpaths and bridleways. The village is also close to the pretty market town of Bishops Waltham that offers a broad range of shops and amenities, is close to neighbouring Botley which has a mainline railway station, with the Cathedral City of Winchester being just under half an hour away, Southampton Airport and all main motorway access routes also being within easy reach. 

INSIDE The property is approached via a driveway leading to an original oak front door which then leads directly through to the entrance vestibule which has windows to both front and rear along with a beautiful original open fireplace and inset wood burning stove. There is an array of exposed beams, a staircase leading to the first floor and doors that then lead through to both the family and drawing rooms. The family room, which is the part of the house that was extended around 1900, again has windows to both front and rear along with an exposed brick fireplace with oak mantel, fitted cupboards to either side of the chimney breast and a bookcase to the opposite wall. The drawing room, which is a well-proportioned room, has a set of French doors that lead out onto the rear patio area, exposed beams, with the main focal point of the room then being the wonderful Inglenook open fireplace. The room also benefits from wall lights and a Tudor wall panel with original glass and then has openings to both sides leading through to an inner hall which has an additional staircase also providing access to the first floor with a door to the side then leading down to the cellar. The dining room, which has windows to either side, is the perfect room for entertaining whilst the heart of the house is the lovely kitchen/breakfast room which has been thoughtfully designed and fitted with a bespoke matching range of pine wall and base units with cupboards and drawers under. The units also have pine worktops that include an inset Butcher's block to one side, a Butler sink unit, chimney breast with inset Aga and quarry tiled flooring. The room also has plumbing space for a washing machine and dishwasher, space for a fridge and further appliance space and again has quarry tiled flooring. A door at one end leads through to a rear porch/ boot room from which doors lead through to a cloakroom with a further door leading through to the rear garden. The cellar is accessed via the inner hallway which is 15ft in length, has power, light and provides useful storage space.

On the first floor which can be accessed via two separate staircases, part of landing is used as a study area with doors leading to all bedrooms. The master bedroom which is a dual aspect room, has a feature open fireplace with pine surround and a range of fitted wardrobes along one wall. Bedroom two, which again is a large double room, has windows to both front and side, a brick open fireplace with wooden surround, fitted wardrobes and has access to the loft. Bedroom three has windows to both the front and rear, an open fireplace and has fitted wardrobes whilst bedroom four, which again is a double room, has fitted wardrobes and overlooks the front of the property. The family bathroom has a window to the rear and is fitted with a suite comprising a roll top bath, separate shower cubicle, wash hand basin set in an attractive pine vanity unit with cupboards below and WC.
 

OUTSIDE To the front of the property there is an area of garden which is laid to lawn and planted with a variety of flowers, trees and shrubs with a shingled in-and-out driveway providing off-road parking for numerous vehicles. The driveway in-part leads down to the detached brick-built garage which has wooden doors, eaves storage space, power and light. Directly behind the garage there is an open fronted double width wood and tool store with the rear garden benefitting from a good sized paved patio area, complete with a well to one side whilst the rear of the garden is mainly laid to lawn yet again well-stocked with selectively planted flowers, trees and shrubs. Towards the end of the garden there is a detached building which would make an ideal office for anyone working from home, with the room having had a number of uses over the years including a games room and workshop. The room is fully plastered, has a large loft space and power and light. Rarely available to the market, to fully appreciate both the accommodation on offer and the property's location, an early viewing truly is a must.
