The property is located within the Conservation Area close to the centre of the village, near the historic ruins of Basing House, largely destroyed by Oliver Cromwell during the English Civil War. Old Basing is a popular village with facilities including three pubs, good schools, shops and a church, and a recreation ground with active tennis and cricket clubs and a children’s play area. Old Basing is situated on the eastern fringes of Basingstoke which offers an extensive range of leisure, recreational and educational facilities, and good commuting with a mainline railway station (within cycling distance) and access to junction 6 of the M3 within about 2 miles of the property.
The Well House is an attractive and prominent Grade II Listed detached family home with the most delightful rear garden. Built around 1550 as an ‘open hall’ farmhouse, the property was extended, and the fireplaces installed, in the early 18th century with reclaimed materials from Basing House. Over recent years the property has been sympathetically transformed into a charming family home of great character retaining much of its original feel.
On the ground floor, the front door opens to a small entrance hall with the family room, with large open fireplace and Jotul log burning stove, to one side and the large principal reception room to the other. This has a wealth of exposed timbers and a large brick built open fireplace and is currently used as a combined sitting and dining room. The spacious kitchen/breakfast room is accessed from both principal reception rooms and is fully fitted with an excellent range of modern units, and gives access to both the study and the utility/cloakroom. The rear hall gives access to the rear garden.
On the first floor, there is a central landing with five double bedrooms, one of which has an en suite shower room and the large family bathroom.
To one side there is a brick paved yard providing off road parking with a brick stable block to one side (3 loose boxes and store) and the detached garage with office in front. There is additional parking on the other side of the house.
The rear garden is delightful. Principally walled, it is level and laid primarily to lawn with a large paved terrace and various flower and shrub beds and borders, and enjoys a westerly orientation.
All mains services are connected.
