Once a popular drinking hole in the desirable village of Alresford, The Old Running Horse has been sympathetically restored and converted into a beautiful Georgian home with fantastic sized reception rooms. With large sash windows and well-proportioned rooms with generous ceiling heights, the reception rooms are light and bright which all lead into each other.
A glass wall provides a clever separation between the dining and drawing room, with an open fireplace and access to the cellar. The large kitchen/breakfast room with a stripped wooden floor, has been beautifully fitted with modern kitchen units and electric blue AGA with separate gas hob. With plenty of storage and a large central island with a second sink and seating for up to six people, this is a great space for entertaining. Accessed from the kitchen is a cloakroom and utility room. A rear hallway has access to the garden and leads through to the bright sitting room with French doors opening onto the terrace and views of the garden.
Upstairs there are four bedrooms on the first floor including the lovely master bedroom suite with dressing room and ensuite bathroom. There is also the large family bathroom with a fireplace, free-standing bath and separate shower cubicle plus a separate cloakroom.
Up on the second floor there are three further bedrooms and a bathroom.
There is an immaculate walled garden to the rear which is mostly laid to lawn with well planted borders, espalier trees and a long gravel drive giving ample parking for several cars. At the far end of the garden is a wooden summer house with a terrace, a heated plunge pool and access to a useful storage area.
The house is situated in the charming Georgian market town of Alresford which offers a good range of day to day shops and facilities including pubs, coffee, tea shops and restaurants. In addition there are a number of more luxury boutique shops, the Watercress steam train line and a rugby club.
More comprehensive facilities can be found in the nearby city of Winchester which along with Micheldever Station (10 miles) have regular trains to London Waterloo taking from 58 minutes and 57 minutes respectively. Road communications are also excellent with the A31 linking the M3, A34, A303.
State and independent schooling is excellent with Sun Hill Infant and Junior schools and Preston Candover Primary School feeding into Perins Community School in Alresford. Independent schools include Twyford, Princes Mead, Pilgrims, Winchester College, St Swithuns and Alton Convent.
Good local 6th form education includes one of the UKs top 6th form colleges, Peter Symonds in Winchester.
Recreational activities include golf courses at Alresford, Basingstoke, Dummer and Winchester. Chalk stream fishing is available on the Rivers Itchen and Test. The area is criss-crossed by footpaths and bridleways and the renowned riding centre at Northington offering riding lessons and/or livery.
