A character home, set on a wonderful elevated plot with far-reaching countryside views. Beauworth is located in the middle of the beautiful South Downs National Park, with dog walks on the doorstep and The Milburys pub just a couple of minutes’ walk away. The property forms part of a former school building, and has high ceilings and spacious rooms. We believe there to be potential to extend the property, subject to planning permission being granted.
The property is approached from the driveway, with the front door opening to a lobby and then into the entrance hall, where stairs lead to the first floor. The dining room has a bay window to the front and wooden flooring, and is open plan to the sitting room, which has a brick fireplace with a wood-burning stove. A door opens to the kitchen which has a range of fitted kitchen units and drawers, with worktops above. There is space for a table and chairs, and a door to outside. A door from the kitchen opens to the utility room, which houses the oil-fired boiler, and into a boot room and cloakroom, and a door to the garden. A bathroom is located at the rear of the entrance hall.
On the first floor, there are four double bedrooms off the landing, as well as a bathroom with a bath and separate shower enclosure.
Outside, there is plenty of driveway parking and a generously proportioned garage, with the capacity for three cars. The overall plot measures 0.45 acres and overlooks fields to the north and west, with far-reaching countryside views. The garden is mainly laid to lawn, with a paved seating area adjoining the house, mature shrub borders and some small trees. There is a stable and area of hardstanding, currently used to house a donkey.
Beauworth is a pretty rural hamlet located about 4 miles south of Alresford and 6½ miles south-east of Winchester. The village is located within The South Downs National Park and comprises mainly period properties, the Manor House and the village church. A short walk away is The Milburys, a typical rural public house. The nearby village of Cheriton has excellent facilities, including a primary school, Post Office, village shop, public house and thriving tennis club. The surrounding Hampshire countryside provides plenty of beautiful walks, including The South Downs Way and The Monarchs Way. The south coast is easily accessible.
A further range of amenities can be found at the nearby picturesque Georgian market town of Alresford with boutique shops and supermarkets. The cathedral city of Winchester lies to the west with mainstream retail outlets. The M3 motorway and the A3 provide excellent access to central London, Gatwick, Heathrow (via the M25) and Southampton International airport.
SERVICES Mains electricity and water are connected. Heating and not water is supplied by an oil-fired boiler. There is a private drainage system in the garden.
