Alton Office :

A charming 1920's bay-fronted detached chalet being presented to the market for the first time in 47 years and offering breath-taking views over neighbouring fields and Winchester beyond. The property has three/four bedrooms, one of which has an en suite, three reception rooms including a sitting room, sun room, utility room and a double garage with a workshop. The grounds are approximately one acre and include a sweeping driveway providing ample parking. The property sits centrally within a very private setting. In our opinion there is vast scope to extend or alter subject to the necessary planning consents.

Enter into the porch and then through to the spacious entrance hall where there are high ceilings and doors to the various rooms. Positioned to the left is the sitting room which is dual aspect with a front aspect sash bay window and double side aspect doors into the sun room, in addition there is an open fireplace and further internal door through to the hall. The sun room is triple aspect and has sliding doors providing access onto the garden. Positioned to the right of the entrance hall there are two of the bedrooms, the front aspect bedroom has a bay window and the second bedroom along has a side aspect sash window and an en suite shower room. Beyond this room along the hall is the dining room which has a side aspect window, this room originally served as bedroom four. Further along the hall is the family bathroom which has an enclosed bath unit with a shower over, shower screen, wash hand basin, WC and a side aspect window. Positioned to the rear of the hall is the breakfast room which has a side aspect window providing breath-taking views over rolling countryside, off the breakfast room is the kitchen which features a full range of wall and base units with surfaces over, a stainless steel one and a half bowl sink and drainer unit, space and plumbing for a dishwasher, double Neff oven, four ring gas hob with an extractor over, vaulted ceiling with beams across and dual aspect windows to the rear and to the side. Off the kitchen is the garden room which has rear aspect double doors onto the garden, tiled floors and a glass roof. Off the garden room there is a large store and access through to the utility room. The utility has a further range of units with surfaces over, space for appliances, an additional sink and drainer unit and a separate cloakroom with a WC and a wash hand basin. In addition there is also a useful space linking the main house to the garage which also provides access to the driveway and the garden. Completing the ground floor accommodation is the inner hall which has a rear aspect door onto the garden room and stairs to the first floor.

Upstairs there is an additional reception space which has a rear aspect window, two skylights and eaves storage to both sides of the room. Off the reception room is the third bedroom which has a front aspect sash window. It is this room that we feel would really benefit from alteration to capture the fantastic views to the left hand side of the property, this would of course be subject to the necessary consents.

The property has grounds in the region of one acre with a sweeping driveway approaching the property and a large area of lawn to the front. To the left hand side of the property there is an expanse of patio creating an ideal seating area to enjoy the views. The rear patio wraps around the property and incorporates a pond which overflows to a lower tier pond creating a pleasant feature, there is also a further large area of lawn beyond this with hedgerow providing the boundaries on all sides, in addition there is a shed, a variety of shrubs, bushes and trees dotted around the plot in a very private setting positioned off Common Hill with a gated entrance. The double garage has two single up and over electric doors, in addition a separate workshop with power and light.
