A beautiful grade two listed cottage in Selborne...

Price: 350,000
Location:Gracious Street, Selborne
Agent:Hamptons International, Alton, 01420 86868
Accommodation at a glance:This is a rare opportunity to purchase a delightful period cottage in a stunning location with a fascinating history.

Situated in the highly sought-after village of Selborne, just off Gracious Street, this Grade II Listed, period cottage is believed to date from the 16th Century. Built from the distinctive Selborne Stone under a pitched, tiled roof, the cottage is part of a historic village landmark which consists of a group of cottages that were believed to have been in use as the village workhouse in the early 19th century. The cottage now provides a most interesting home that still retains all of its inherent character, whilst offering the opportunity to modernise and improve.

The accommodation includes a sitting room, kitchen/breakfast room and bathroom to the ground floor and two bedrooms and a WC to the first floor. In addition there is an attic room with views towards the Beech covered Hangar. There is a well stocked pretty cottage garden to the front with flowering plants and shrubs and a delightful, west-facing courtyard which borders the adjoining cottages to the rear. In addition, there is a mature and secluded area of garden a few steps along the lane, boasting many plants and fruit trees together with two parking spaces.

Location:The cottage occupies a picturesque setting amongst a collection of other period cottages and village homes of varying styles and sizes in a very attractive and mature village location.

Selborne is set amidst some of the finest Hampshire countryside between the villages of Hawkley, Farringdon and Worldham and has an active community with two public houses, shop, church and primary school. The village is also renowned for its association with Gilbert White, the 18th century naturalist and is surrounded by scenery of outstanding natural beauty, also now part of the South Downs National Park. The nearby towns of Alton and Petersfield provide a range of facilities as well as mainline railway stations to London, Waterloo. The A3 provides a convenient route to the South Coast via the new Hindhead tunnel to London.
