A beautifully appointed and exceptionally well presented semi-detached Edwardian house standing in a very fine and convenient location for the town, within half a mile of the High Street. The house has been considerably improved by the existing owner to create a very comfortable family home. This is a house of great character and charm which takes full advantage of the features associated with a building of this period. The house now provides a stylish and interesting home while retaining all of its inherent character. The feeling of light and space is apparent throughout, with high ceilings, large sash windows and well proportioned rooms. The generous accommodation includes a most impressive living room with a square bay window and a working open fireplace. There is also a second reception room, currently used as a 4th bedroom and study. The well proportioned kitchen diner has French doors leading to the patio and rear garden. The first floor accommodation is of equal merit with three double bedrooms and a large, recently renovated family bathroom. The house is complemented by a far larger than expected garden to the rear, enjoying a good degree of peaceful seclusion, and featuring a fantastic modern garden-room. The house also has the considerable benefit of off-road parking to the front, for two cars, and a further single space to the rear.

Location
The house stands in a much sought-after part of Alton, close to the town centre yet with easy access to beautiful surrounding countryside and the South Downs National Park. Ideally located, it is less than a mile to the mainline station, with frequent direct services to Waterloo, and the terminus for the historic Watercress Line steam railway. The road network is good, with easy access to the M3 and A3 for London or the south coast. There are a host of local amenities including excellent local schools and sixth-form college, sports centre, Waitrose, Sainsbury's, M&S Food and a range of shops and restaurants including Pizza Express. There is a weekly market on the High Street and to the rear are the market square and picturesque public gardens, a hive of activity and a great local attraction especially in the summer months.
