To the other side of the hallway is a separate utility room with built-in storage and a cloakroom.
The main bedroom is set to the far end of the property and features an en-suite bathroom and a bay window providing stunning, uninterrupted views across neighbouring countryside.

Outside
Set off a country lane, an electric gated entrance opens onto a driveway leading up to a large parking area and garaging.

The wonderful grounds attributed to this property extend to approximately four acres, offering a harmonious blend of formal and natural elements, catering to a variety of interests.

Set within the grounds are a number of useful outbuildings, including a recently constructed home office/garden room, garage complex and a large wood store offering options for a number of different uses. There is also an organic/kitchen garden and a second driveway from the lane leading to a further garage in need of repair.

The elevated setting also provides wonderful, far-reaching views across the neighbouring fields and countryside. The paddock areas together with the stabling also lend themselves to those with an equine interest.

Situation
The property is tucked away in a secluded and semi-rural location yet lies within one mile of the Georgian market town or Alresford with its excellent range of independent retailers, delicatessens, restaurants and public houses. There is a more comprehensive range of shopping, cultural and recreational amenities in the cathedral city of Winchester, together with a mainline station with services into London Waterloo with a journey time of approximately one hour.

The A31 and M3 provide access to the national road network and the area is well served by an excellent range of state and private schools, including Sun Hill Infant and Junior and Perins Secondary & Sports College. Outdoor pursuits are also well catered for with fishing on the renowned Itchen River and many opportunities for walking and riding in the surrounding countryside.
