This stunning converted church is full to the brim with character and with over 3000 square feet of flexible accommodation and large gardens it is a wonderful place to raise a family.

It is also ideal for the commuter being just two miles as the crow flies from Basingstoke's mainline station (with services into London Waterloo of around 45 minutes) and the M3 motorway close at hand at junctions 6 and 7.

Cliddesden is a very pretty Hampshire village centred around a duck pond and having a popular primary school and a decent village pub. Basingstoke's retail and leisure facilities are also within a short drive.

This home is full of architectural interest with stone mullion leaded light stained glass windows, exposed timbers and lots of nooks and crannies (ideal for stealing away with a book).

The accommodation is entered through oak double doors and is set over three floors and is adaptable to suit whatever needs you may have. The living areas are wide and open and set around a central chimney breast that rises up through the heart of the home to the vaulted ceilings.

Emphasis has been given to the windows, particularly the signature window within the front elevation that offers pretty views over trees and roof tops to the countryside beyond – pull up a chair and gaze out. Balustrades have been set around the stained glass windows in the drawing room to illustrate the full height of the windows rising up from the living/dining room below.

The mezzanine level affords a real sense of the enormity and grandness of the church and can be used for a whole variety of purposes – library, games room, living room, bedroom, anything you wish really.

The gardens are extensive on three sides of the property and have a paved courtyard immediately to the rear of the building.

At the end of the garden there is a large garage/workshop that has power and light and will appeal to any handymen/women. There is also plenty of driveway parking.
