THE PROPERTY

A most attractive and well proportioned edge of vilage house, surrounded by established grounds in an unspoilt and peaceful contrified setting but well placed for mainline communications. Ellisfield village is extremely sought-after, tucked away within Hampshire farmland and woodland and yet it is only situated six miles south of Basingstoke centre and two miles west of the A339 Basingstoke to Alton road. The village is ideally placed within a quiet rural location with good road and rail links within easy reach. Junction 6 of the M3 is just under six miles away (25 miles to the M25) and fast commuter trains from Basingstoke station to London Waterloo in 45 minutes. The village has a strong community and the benefit of a church (St Martins), the Fox Inn, Memorial Hall and in nearby Preston Candover, village store and primary school. There is also a primary school in Cliddesden with senior schools in Basingstoke and Alton. The house is a detached two storey house built in 1985 which has the most attractive stuccoed elevations with contrasting brickwork, part tile hung at first floor level with inset double-glazed windows under a hipped tiled roof. The accommodation is extremely well proportioned and with the house being slightly elevated, the majority of the rooms have fine views over the gardens, grounds and woodland and farmland on the western side. The accommodation broadly comprises, entrance porch, cloakroom, double height hall with a quarter turn staircase rising to the first floor. Drawing room, inglenook style fireplace with a Jetmaster fire, sliding picture window opening out onto the terrace and gardens and a door leads through to the workroom which could simply be used as a further reception room and houses the boiler. The dining room has a slate floor, fireplace, Clearview wood burning stove, bi-fold doors and a sliding picture window opening out onto the two tiered deck terrace and gardens. From the dining room it opens through to the kitchen/breakfast/family room, oak laminate floor, shaker style units, oak worktops, butcher's block, rangemaster stove, and a walk in larder. The utility room has various fitted units, back door and a stable door which leads through into the workroom. On the first floor the main bedroom is extremely well proportioned, has long views to the west, and an archway leading through to an adjoining bathroom and dressing room. There are four further bedrooms, two of which have shower cubicles and vanity unit basins. There is also a further family bathroom. The house is approached by a long in and out driveway which leads up to a detached barn style double garage which has weather boarded elevations under a hipped tiled roof. The gardens are a very special feature. The frontage to Green Lane is defined by a wall of brick pillars with railings between. The gardens are elevated, there are sweeping lawns, mature shrubs and studded with a broadleaf and evergreen trees, mature fruit trees, and a former grass tennis court. The boundaries are hedged and create a great deal of privacy for the garden. Other buildings include two garden outbuildings, one for garden machinery with an open sided log store and a further tool store/workshop. The ''Rest Room' is a former old privy and now a gardener's WC and there is a further single garage. The gardens extend in all to 1.06 Acres (0.428 hectares)
