Lot 1 – A unique and beautifully converted Oast House situated high on the northern reaches of the South Downs National Park together with two holiday cottages, stables and approximately 26.32 acres (10.65 ha) of land. Internal Virtual Viewing Tour Available On Request
THE PROPERTY The Oast House (Listed Grade II) was separated from Wick Hill Farm in the early 1990's and subsequently converted and extended by our client to form a secluded farm with a diverse range of outdoor activities.
The views from the house and land are some of the finest in Hampshire and far reaching in parts, it is a uniquely beautiful and tranquil location, ideal for anyone with countryside and nature interests.
The house provides comfortable space with a substantial guest wing which is used for holiday/leisure accommodation.
The two holiday let cottages are popular and provide an established income stream, but also can be occupied by seasonal workers.
The Stable Barn (55 ft by 40ft) (17m by 12m) provides 10 loose boxes with an internal tack room.
LOCATION Hartley Mauditt and Wick Hill are one of East Hampshire's best kept secrets, secluded and rural yet remarkably accessible, Alton is just under 5 miles away and Petersfield under 12.5 miles to the South. It is a virtually untouched landscape of undulating countryside characterised by ancient wooded chalk escarpments/hangers. Wick Hill is at the end of a no through road and the Oast House has a dramatic southerly aspect looking towards Selborne, famous for being the home of the 18th Century naturalist Gilbert White.
The area is characterised by small villages and farming hamlets spread over a series of meandering lanes with a timeless feel. Whilst secluded the original farmhouse is next door and other properties in the lane. There are miles of local footpaths to explore and bridle paths directly from Wick Hill for those who ride and also a fantastic network of local lanes providing country cycle routes. The nearest shopping facilities are in Alton where the A31 provides good regional transport links to Winchester and Farnham. The A3 is also accessible at Liss, linking to Guildford and Portsmouth on the south coast.
Hampshire is well catered for with top performing state and independent schools all within the region (The Alton School, Bedales, Edgeborough, Highfield, Churcher's, Winchester College and St Swithun's).
Whilst enjoying a beautiful and exceptionally tranquil countryside location and the lifestyle and recreation opportunities that affords. The Oast House is close to excellent shops, restaurants and major transport links by road, rail and air.
OUTSIDE The land is predominantly pasture.
