This attractive detached house seamlessly blends period character and modern convenience to create a delightful family home in secluded gardens of 0.29 acres, right in the heart of this Hampshire village. The owners have fashioned a high quality home with interesting features both inside and out.

Oakley has an attractive core of historical buildings and a range of small shops, two pubs and very popular infant and junior schools. The major town of Basingstoke lies around four miles to the east and this has a mainline rail service into London Waterloo of around 45 minutes. The M3 motorway is easily reached at junctions 6 or 7 making this an ideal spot for the commuter.

The house is approached across a shingle drive with an enclosed porch leading into the dining room that has an open fireplace. The living room has an attractive DRU gas fire and has open access into a comfortable snug that has French doors to the outside. There is an excellent sized study, and this has further French doors out to the garden.

The kitchen/breakfast room is impressively fitted with handmade shaker style units with soft-close cupboards and drawers, complemented by textured granite worksurfaces and a polished timber breakfast bar. There is a range of integrated appliances including an inset induction and gas multifunction hob with hood, teppanyaki plate, double ovens with grill, warming drawers, and a dishwasher.

The ground floor is completed by a large utility room and the downstairs loo.

Heading upstairs there are five good size bedrooms with the largest having delightful views out over the gardens and a stunning en-suite shower room with a walk-in shower cubicle. The family bathroom has a further shower over the bath.

Moving outside there is a sound-proofed purpose-built cinema room that could also be used as a music room, entertainment room or studio.

The gardens and mature trees extend around three sides of the house and offer a high degree of seclusion. There are French doors from the kitchen out onto a paved terrace with steps up to a formal lawn, which is surrounded by well-stocked flower and shrub beds. There is a paved dining area with BBQ and a separate 'loggia' with fixed seating and a stone fireplace.

Parking is good here with a shingle drive to the front with space for four/five vehicles in addition to a single detached garage.
