This substantial well presented detached three storey house was built by a specialist local builder of bespoke properties in 1994. The Firs is built in the style of a farmhouse, with attractive brick elevations, part rendered, colour washed and tile hung, under a hip tiled roof. The property offers well proportioned accommodation and has great flexibility, including the potential to create an annexe by combining the existing garage and room over, subject to necessary permission. It has been comprehensively modernised by the present owners to include kitchen, bathroom, utility room and boiler. It stands in attractive mature gardens of approximately 0.84 acres. There are extensive uninterrupted open countryside views from both inside the property and the garden across the Meon Valley. It is a rare opportunity to acquire a property of this calibre in such a popular semi rural location, so viewing is very highly recommended.
