Description

A charming detached period cottage of great character standing in grounds of just over 0.6 of an acre in an exceptional location with stunning views. The cottage has been carefully enlarged to take best advantage of the setting with views from each of the rooms to the open countryside beyond whilst retaining all of its inherent character with elevations of local stone beneath a slate roof. Features of note include a spacious kitchen/dining room with steps leading up to a raised terrace providing a superb outside entertaining area and distant rural views. The kitchen is fitted with a range of bespoke cabinets with granite work surfaces, pan drawers, integrated dishwasher and a dual plate electric Aga. The accommodation also includes a sitting room with a fireplace and a wood burning stove together with an adjoining study area. There is also a utility /cloakroom to the ground floor. There are four well-proportioned bedrooms to the first floor including a twin aspect principal bedroom and a separate family bathroom. The cottage is complemented by a well-established garden with beautiful rural views.

Situation
The cottage stands off a small rural lane just under a mile from the village of Selborne. The active village of Selborne has a public house, shops, church and primary school. The village is also renowned for its association with Gilbert White, the 18th century naturalist and is surrounded by scenery of outstanding natural beauty within the South Downs National Park and lying at the foot of a beech covered hanger. The market towns of Alton and Petersfield provide a wide range of facilities as well as mainline railway stations to London Waterloo. In addition, the A3 can be accessed at Liss providing a route to London and the south coast.

Outside
The cottage occupies a beautiful natural elevated setting with stunning rural views. There are a series of terraces providing a variety of outside areas for dining and entertaining bordered by low hedging and set around a plum tree all surrounded by shrubs and perennials including golden fennel and epimediums. An ideally positioned summerhouse overlooks the terraces and the garden to the open countryside beyond.

The woodland hanger provides a magical setting and is accessed via two alternative routes, one with steps and a split chestnut rail, the other via a sloping path also with a chestnut rail. The woodland provides a natural haven for wildlife with owls, woodpeckers and bird song often heard.

The lower section of the garden is primarily set beyond a natural pond and planted with a number of fruit trees with apple, pear and golden plum forming a small orchard. The orchard is interspersed by several varieties of crab apple and adjoins a vegetable garden with artichokes, chard, rhubarb, raspberries, redcurrants, gooseberries and blackcurrants. There is a triple-bin compost system and double leaf-mould container.

The pond is a very special feature of the garden providing a sanctuary for native species with newts and frogs.

In all the gardens and grounds extend to about 0.633 of an acre and provide an idyllic setting fully in sympathy with the unspoilt rural environment.

A shingle driveway is approached via a five bar gate and provides ample parking and access to the garage.
