A charming flexible Listed village house of character with a wonderful private garden, in a handy central village position within walking distance of local amenities.
THE PROPERTY A charming Grade II listed village house dating from the late 18th and early 19th Centuries combining timeless classical character with an updated contemporary interior.
The house has a flexible layout with a lovely double length south facing drawing room, three further reception rooms which can flex to suit family/generational needs, a great utility room/larder and boot room for practical day to day needs as well as a substantial ground floor store room. A real "indoors/outdoors" house with a choice of six doors/French windows opening onto the garden.
Upstairs there are six double bedrooms and two bathrooms, the rear two bedrooms could easily be reconfigured into a guest/annexe suite of sitting room, bedroom and bathroom or use the existing space as a studio, upstairs playroom or home office according to needs.
LOCATION Wonderfully discreet, The Grange is approached up a long drive off a traditional village street scene, privately positioned within the conservation area. The house is well placed near the village community shop and the popular Thomas Lord pub. West Meon lies within the South Downs National Park and is an active village community with a primary school, village hall, butchers, shop and Doctor's surgery. The Meon valley is part of a gently undulating rural landscape that has remained largely unchanged for hundreds of years. It is a great location for cyclists and walkers as the network of local lanes meander for miles.
The A272 lies to the north of the village connecting Winchester and Petersfield, providing a choice of wider amenities and mainline stations with services to London Waterloo in just over an hour. The A3 can be accessed at Petersfield, which provides good regional links to Guildford and the South Coast. There is an excellent choice of private and state schools in the region.
OUTSIDE The entrance drive sweeps up passing the side of the house into a wide gravelled parking area to the rear of the house, with plenty of off road parking and access to the substantial open fronted garage with integrated machinery/garden store.
The garden is arranged around the house in several "rooms". To the east is a partially walled orchard garden with areas of lawn, gravelled/brick paths and lovely sun trap. To the south and west are expanses of lawn ideal for smaller children to enjoy or delve into the lighted wooded/wilder boundary areas providing deep shelter belts. A lovely herbaceous border runs down the driveway wall and there is a wide paved terrace across the south of the house with a smaller paved area to the west providing choices for alfresco summer entertaining. In all about 1 acre (0.397 ha).
