A well-designed and spacious detached house occupying the prime plot in this small development of just seven properties, built by Hillreed Homes in 2011. With generous gardens to the front and rear, a double garage and good parking, this could be the ideal home for a family looking for space and seclusion, or for those keen on entertaining. Watercress Way is within easy reach of the A31, which links through to Farnham and Guildford to the north-east and Winchester and Southampton to the south-west.
The house sits on a lovely open plot, with a driveway to the front allowing parking for several vehicles. Covered by a storm porch, the front door opens to a long entrance hall, which has smart wooden flooring, stairs to the first floor and a cloakroom. The heart of the home is the well-proportioned kitchen/breakfast room, which has a range of kitchen units with worksurfaces and integrated appliances, including twin eye-level ovens. From the kitchen, doors open to the utility room and the dining room, where there is ample room for a long dining table and with French doors to the garden. Off the hall is a study to the front of the house and a family room/snug, which overlooks the garden. The light and airy sitting room has plenty of versatile space, with the focal point being the feature brick fireplace with a wood-burning stove. French doors open to the garden.
On the first floor, doors open to the bedrooms from the landing. The two principal bedrooms both have built-in wardrobes and en-suite bath/shower rooms. The remaining bedrooms are all well-sized with the third bedroom having a built-in double wardrobe. There is a family bathroom with bath and separate shower cubicle.
There is a lovely lawned garden to the front of the property, with mature planting screening the house from the road. The sweeping driveway leads to the double garage, which has twin up-and-over doors and a personal door opening to the utility room. A gate to the side of the house leads through to the unusually large rear garden, which is laid to lawn with a paved seating terrace adjoining the back of the house.
Watercress Way is within easy reach of Four Marks, with local shops, schooling and facilities in the village and just a few miles from Alton, where there is a Waitrose, M&S food store and Sainsburys, along with a good selection of local shops and facilities. There is good road access to London, the M25 and beyond via the A31, which runs through the village. There is direct mainline rail access to London from Alton, with Heathrow/Gatwick airports an hour away and Southampton airport about half an hour away.
