A charming edge of village contemporary family house with lock up and leave convenience, yet handy for Alton or Petersfield.
THE PROPERTY A great contemporary village house set within a private cul de sac of four individual houses completed in 2018. The Whitebeam has a lovely light interior with large windows and a flexible split level layout. The main reception room is at first floor level with direct access to the rear garden and this is adjacent to the kitchen/breakfast room providing fabulous entertaining space. The master bedroom suite is self contained at first floor level with study or flexible bedroom adjacent. On the ground floor are three further bedrooms, a bathroom with shower and utility room.
LOCATION Selborne is one of Hampshire's rural gems. It has historic association with the 18th Century naturalist Gilbert White and unspoilt landscape featuring the ancient wooded "Hangers". The village has an active community with village hall, shop/post office, pub, pre-school, primary school and recreation ground. It is rural yet remarkably accessible, Alton is just 5 miles away and Petersfield about 8 miles to the south both offering wider shopping facilities and mainline stations. The Whitebeam is well positioned on the eastern edge of the village within walking distance of the recreation ground and village centre. The A31 at Alton provides good regional transport links to Winchester and Farnham and the A3 at Liss to London, Guildford or the south coast.
Hampshire is well catered for with top performing state and independent schools all within the region (Alton Convent, Bedales, Highfield, Churcher's and St Swithun's). There are many footpaths and bridleways in the area, as well as the local lanes, which provide a fantastic network of walks and cycle routes (including the National Trust land at Selborne Common).
OUTSIDE To one side of the house is a parking area with outside store.
In front of the house are some well stocked borders, the main garden being to the side and slopes up at the rear to an upper level where there is a paved terrace providing a sunny area well positioned off the kitchen and sitting room and a handy spot for summer lunch or even breakfast. The garden is manageable and mostly laid to lawn.
In a nutshell:
We love the natural light which floods into the house, having neighbours for community security yet the convenience to stroll to the recreation ground or village amenities and so close to wonderful country walks.
