Detached period house in Holybourne recently sold well in excess of £850,000 asking price

Reflecting the appetite among homebuyers for property offering flexible work from home and living accommodation in an attractive village setting, Homes recently agreed a successful sale for clients in London Road, Holybourne.

Character features meet contemporary style

The wisteria clad detached period house has beautifully light renovated interiors, including a newly built and extended kitchen with bi-fold doors leading out onto a private sunny patio. The four bedroom home has plenty of space with three reception rooms, all tastefully decorated to create a fresh stylish feel, whilst retaining many character features including ship’s timbers dating back to 1750s.

Perfect work from home space

One of the big selling points about this particular property was the plot extending to around one third of an acre, offering level lawns, mature planting with shrubs and trees in a secluded setting. The converted home office with a mezzanine level lying adjacent to the house provides excellent work from home space.

Prized parking for three cars and more

In a village where parking comes at a premium, this house has the huge advantage of having both a separate garage and driveway to accommodate three or more vehicles. The area does offer the new owners scope for further building, either adjoining or separate from the main house.

Rob Price, joint managing director at Homes commented: “We weren’t surprised to attract very keen buyers for this house priced at offers over £850,000 in Holybourne.

The moment we were instructed we had 24 viewings booked in over two days and with such intense competition from buyers ready to proceed, it went to best and final offers, achieving well in excess of the asking price.”

Holybourne is a very popular village in a Conservation area on the edge of Alton. It has a reputation for offering a friendly vibrant community. It has a village pub – The White Hart, artisan village store and post office, church and a thriving primary school with an excellent secondary school around the corner.
