NB See important note on SDLT (stamp duty land tax) on About Us & General Info page


Fabulous country house full of character and spacious proportions
​situated up a tranquil, no-th​rough country lane with views over neighbouring countryside

Location

Market town of Alton approximately 2.5 miles; Farnham 9 miles; Basingstoke 14 miles; Winchester 22 miles; Alton Station (trains to London, Waterloo) approximately 2 miles

Situation

The property is situated in the semi rural 'hamlet' of Neatham just outside the village of Holybourne. It enjoys a slightly elevated setting with views over farmland to the south and rolling Hampshire countryside to the north and west.  Holybourne has a church, an exceptional C of E primary school, local shop and post office and a public house.  There are some very good independant schools nearby including Alton Convent in the town with the hugely popular pre-prep and prep schools of Brookham and Highfield about thirty minutes away in Liphook.  More locally, Eggars provides a first class State secondary education whilst Alton Sixth Form College enjoys an excellent reputation.

Property Description


The cottage is thought to date back to the 18th century with the exposed oak timber and fireplace in the drawing room suggesting that be the case.  More recently, the house has been considerably extended and is now a very well appointed family home.   The elevations are of brick with colourwash on the rear and tile hung beneath a tiled roof.  There is mains gas central heating, underfloor heating in the family bathroom, an open fire in the drawing room and a large woodburner in the snug.   The grounds are lovely and include a vegetable garden with greenhouse, two lawns, an area of woodland with pathways winding through the laurel, larch and Scottish pine trees, a floodlit tennis court and a rear parking area with separate access from the lane and leading to several sheds/workrooms.

Special mention must be made of the barn annexe and the pavilion (please see the individual pages of these two important aspects of the property).  The barn provides self catering accommodation and thus is a source of income (please enquire as to the figures), whilst the pavilion, situated beside the tennis court, has a bathroom and loo, two sleeping platforms, is centrally heated (LPG) and has air conditioning.   Both barn and pavilion are hard wired for broadband, thus one contract can, if required, service the house, the barn and the pavilion.
