A superb detached family house standing in an exceptional location with distant rural views and principally south facing grounds. Originally believed to date from 1846 the house has been carefully extended and now provides a very appealing family home whilst still retaining all of its inherent character with lovely views from the well-proportioned rooms over the surrounding farmland. Features of note include a large triple aspect sitting room with sliding doors opening out to the rear terrace and a raised fireplace with a wood burning stove. This is a wonderful room with fine views over the garden and extending in all to about 24'3 ft. / 7.39 m. The generous living accommodation also includes a dining / family room standing at the heart of the house with a fireplace and wood burning stove. This is a very flexible room also with the benefit of sliding doors to the garden and a connecting door to the kitchen. The kitchen is fitted with a full range of cabinets and opens into the separate breakfast room with sliding doors opening out to the terrace. There are four / five bedrooms to the first floor. The principle and guest bedrooms have en suite bath or shower rooms. There is also a separate family bathroom. The fifth potential bedroom is accessed via another bedroom and allows for occasional guest accommodation or as a useful combination of a bedroom and home office / hobby room. The grounds provide an ideal setting and a good degree of seclusion with long views over the surrounding farmland.
The active village of Upper Farringdon is set amidst fine Hampshire countryside between the villages of Chawton, East Tisted and Worldham within the South Downs National Park.
