About this property

TENURE: Freehold

The cottage is believed to date from around 1840 and is of important local interest forming part of a series of handsome buildings in Selborne. Importantly, the cottage retains many of the features associated with a building of this period with bright and well-proportioned rooms with large windows set around a spacious reception hall and landing. The generous accommodation includes a sitting room with a central fireplace and a charming dining room. The further accommodation is versatile and includes a garden room overlooking the courtyard garden. There is also a kitchen and bathroom to the ground floor. There are four bedrooms to the first floor with fine views from the rear bedrooms and landing towards to the Selborne Hangers and over the stunning landscaped gardens and grounds of Gilbert White's House.

The courtyard garden is a very special feature of the cottage and provides an attractive setting. The cottage is set beyond a low stone and brick wall with period railings. A paved pathway leads along the side of the cottage to the rear. There is an area of ground to the side with a variety of mature trees. The courtyard garden to the rear provides an ideal outside seating area with exposed stone walling. Services: Mains drainage. Oil fired central heating.

Selborne has a strong community with a public house - 'The Selborne Arms', shop, cafe's, church and primary school and is set amidst fine Hampshire countryside between the villages of Hawkley and Farringdon within the South Downs National Park. Renowned for its association with Gilbert White, the 18th century naturalist, the village is surrounded by scenery of outstanding natural beauty lying at the foot of a beach covered hanger. The village is also home to Gilbert White's House and Gardens with free entry for residents of Selborne. The market towns of Petersfield and Alton collectively provide a range of facilities as well as mainline stations to London Waterloo. In addition, the A3 can be accessed at Liss (also with a station) providing a route to London and the south coast.
