Full description

Tenure: Freehold

THE PROPERTY Southdown House is a fine Victorian family house with soul and character from that wonderful period. The brick exterior has a distinctive timbered veranda to the main façade and the large, mainly sash windows provide a lovely light interior. Inside there are generous ceiling heights upstairs and downstairs with two well proportioned reception rooms, an elegant hall and snug by the kitchen/breakfast room which has a lovely aspect into the garden and easy access to the south facing terrace outside. The four double bedrooms are well positioned off a spacious landing. A family house for over 30 years, the house is in need of modernisation with scope for further extension (subject to planning), as it has been little altered over the centuries. The house has a lovely gravelled approach which swings past the front of the house to a rear courtyard where there is a practical everyday back door and outbuilding which has been a great home office with garage adjoining, but could easily be a games room or even ancillary annexe.

In a Nutshell:

A much loved family home for 32 years from toddlers to a wedding, we have loved the balance of space inside and outside, the happy memories will last a lifetime.
 

LOCATION Well set back from the corner of Paice Lane and South Town Road, between Medstead and Four Marks; the house is positioned on high ground in a lovely mature garden setting with some fine copper beech, horse chestnut and oak trees. The garden and grounds are free range heaven for children and there is scope for ponies with a small paddock and stables. Our clients rented additional grazing locally as needs dictated. The local village of Medstead is nearby with a shop/Post Office, pub, Saxon church and more extensive amenities are available nearby at either Four Marks, Alton or Alresford.

The extensive network of local lanes, footpaths and bridleways provide amazing walks and cycling routes, ideal for any country/outdoor enthusiasts. The A31 is at Four Marks and provides good regional transport links between Guildford and Winchester. The M3 lies to the north at Basingstoke where there is also a fast commuter rail service to London Waterloo. There is a good choice of independent and state schools in the region including Alton School, St Swithun's, Twyford, Perrins (Alresford), Alton Sixth Form College and Peter Symonds at Winchester. 

OUTSIDE The garden is mature and well established with some fine perimeter native trees providing privacy and seasonal colour. There is a paved terrace with southerly aspect outside the kitchen/snug ideal for summer lunches and barbeques. The garden gently slopes away and is mainly lawn with an enclosed vegetable garden and interspersed in parts with mature shrubs. There is a separate access off Paice Lane, which leads to the small fenced paddock and stable block (with three looseboxes, two hay stores and small tack room). There is plenty of parking space for cars by the house and an old timber shed and Garage/Store attached to the Home office. In all about 1.15 acres (0466 ha).
