Property description

This charming, quintessential, Grade II listed country house, believed to date back to 1650, has immense character displaying many features that mark its historic past. Once a village school house and a Midland Bank outpost, Apple Tree House is now an inviting, welcoming and flexible home, with environmentally conscious carbon free heating, from which to enjoy the surrounding countryside and the many amenities and activities that this highly regarded village offers.

The principal reception room, to the left on entering, extends the full depth of the house and benefits from an inglenook fireplace with open fire. To the right is a family room that links conveniently into the generously proportioned kitchen/breakfast room so that young children can be within sight and sound. Otherwise this could be a television room or a dining room. The bespoke country style kitchen has an aga and is fitted with an excellent range of cabinets and has a lovely aspect over the garden. There is also a study which also looks out over the garden.

The first floor comprises of some really lovely, rooms of much charm. The ceilings are of a surprisingly good height and all could accommodate double beds if required. They are served by a well fitted bathroom with bath and separate shower. The principal bedroom is peacefully positioned overlooking the garden.

Preston Candover is in the desirable Candover valley, an area renowned for its fine rolling countryside, picturesque hamlets and small villages. The village unusually offers a great deal of amenities. There is a highly regarded pre-school and primary school, (Ofsted outstanding), a community shop/post office, village hall, tennis club and The Purefoy Arms gastro-pub. The larger Georgian market town of Alresford is approximately 6.4 miles away providing most everyday needs with a number of boutique shops, restaurants and pubs. Winchester and Basingstoke both provide a more extensive range of facilities and access to the railway network. Micheldever Station is also nearby. Preston Candover ce Primary School leads into Perins Community School in Alresford with good local sixth form at one of the UK’s top colleges, Peter Symonds in Winchester. Independent schools include Prince’s Mead, Twyford and Pilgrims Prep Schools followed by Churchers, Alton Convent, Daneshill, Lord Wandsworth, St Swithun’s and Winchester College.

The garden is delightful with many organically fed shrubs and plants. This really has been a wonderful sanctuary for our client over the last 30 years. A strong scented Rosa Mundi ancient rose is a feature as are two beautiful Arisaema's. A couple of apple trees including a Bramley produce delicious 'straight from the tree' eaters. There is a stone terrace on which to position a table and chairs, well stocked beds punctuated with colourful plants and shrubs and a mature and thriving wisteria meanders across the rear elevation. There is a garden shed for which planning would not be required if one wished to convert this into a home office. There is planning permission for a garage but currently a driveway on which one could park at least 3 cars.
