Full Details

FULL DESCRIPTION ME Estates are pleased to bring to the market Buzzards Drift which was built to a Scandia Hus design in 2008 with excellent attention to detail throughout.



Buzzards Drift has been designed to give a sense of great open plan living and well-appointed living space from the minute you walk through the front door.



As you enter the spacious entrance hall, with a beautiful staircase to the right which leads to the first floor, with the open plan kitchen/breakfast room/family area leading to the left. The sitting room straight ahead which boasts a fully restored Edwardian fireplace with a timber surround has double doors opening to the garden. The kitchen/breakfast room/family area is a wonderfully adaptable space which is over 33ft long. The very well designed and equipped kitchen area which boasts ample storage and an integral microwave/oven/grill, ceramic hob with stainless steel hood over and a 1.5 ceramic sink. The kitchen area is divided from the family area by a breakfast bar which has a beautiful dark blue granite work surface. Moving into the family area there is a brick chimney breast which houses a wood burning stove and triple folding doors (with electric canopy which extends by 3 metres) open to a large area of Indian sandstone terrace. At the end of the family room there are double doors which open to the very spacious conservatory. Throughout the ground floor, there is underfloor heating including the conservatory.



The dining room which is southerly facing presents a charming square bay window which overlooks the front of the property and the woods beyond. In the dining room there is a further restored Victorian fireplace housing a gas coal effect fire. There is a study and well fitted utility room, including a four-plate gas hob, and access through the back door to the driveway.



On the first floor, the master bedroom is of generous proportions with a walk in wardrobe with fitted storage and an ensuite bath/shower room. At the front of the master bedroom which faces south there are French doors which lead to a well-proportioned balcony providing views over to the Bushy Leaze woodland.



There are four further bedrooms located on the 1st floor, two of which are complimented by ensuite shower rooms and the 5th bedroom is perfect for a study or nursery. There is also a family bathroom with shower and bath. All the bathrooms and shower rooms have electric warm up tiles also.



A feature of the property is extensive storage space including eaves storage, fitted wardrobes and, the loft (which has the potential to be converted space), with a pull-down ladder onto the galleried landing. The roof space benefits from double insulation. Also, the triple doors in the family room are double glazed along with the conservatory. The rest of the property has triple glazing.





Garage/Studio Annexe

Another well designed part of the property that was built at the same time as the original house, the vendors converted the loft area in 2012 to further accommodation with its own entrance, a generous 21ft x 21ft bedsitting room with stainless steel sink. The focal point pebble stone-effect electric fire is wall hung together with two radiators heated from a Calor gas-fired boiler. There is also a separate shower room. Below is the three bay garage with two up-and-over doors.



Location



The house enjoys a risen outlook set back from Medstead Road with a village location within the sought-after village of Beech. The very attractive and active village of Beech is surrounded by beautiful Hampshire countryside with an unspoilt wooded valley between the villages of Bentworth, Medstead and Shalden. The village has a very welcoming community with a church, village hall and associated recreation ground. There are a number of foot and bridle paths nearby, ideal for country walks. The village of Bentworth, about 3 miles from the property, has a primary school, two public houses and a church. The village of Medstead, about 2 miles away, has two shops, a church, village hall and primary school. Alton about 2 miles away provides a good range of shops along with weekly and specialist markets, cinema, sports centre, two secondary schools, sixth form college and mainline station to London Waterloo.



External Areas



The current owners have divided the original acre garden into two equally sized plots with the area belonging to Buzzards Drift enclosed on the southern boundary by a post and rail fence. The house is accessed via a shared drive which leads up to the house and an excellent level parking area with space for at least 5 cars next to the garage. Steps and the drive lead up to a further area of parking and the front door.



To the western side of the house is an attractive and large area of Indian sandstone paving with further paving leading around the conservatory and beyond. The garden extends above this area with lawn broken by mature hardwood, fruit trees and conifers. The current owners have also erected a deer fence around the garden boundaries. The area has been split into two equal sized plots of half an acre each.
