5 Bedroom Detached House For Sale
A substantial, versatile and charming period detached 4 / 5 bedroom house in a popular village with large garden and views.
Church House is situated in the highly sought after village of Shillingstone. This charming Grade II Listed house was built approximately 300 years ago as a farmhouse for the Portman Estate. The house was extended in the 19th century, further extended at the beginning of the 20th century and has retained its traditional brick construction and thatched roof. There is an abundance of character and charm throughout including exposed beams, feature fireplaces, high ceilings, exposed floorboards, and sash windows. The house offers spacious living, predominantly over just two floors, and the accommodation is extremely adaptable and could be used as a family home with a separate annexe for a dependent relative or visiting family or B&B.
Benefiting from a large garden and far-reaching views towards Hambledon Hill this superb property has so much to offer.
The front door opens into a porch with a further door into an entrance hall with a cloakroom.

Off the inner hall there is a trio of reception rooms overlooking the garden or village lane. The dining room has an impressive bay window and access to the garden is via the drawing room or the sitting room through the French doors. There is an attractive oak framed kitchen / dining room, added in 2011, with views over the main garden, a door leading outside and a fully equipped kitchen.
