About this property Originally an Elizabethan timber framed building with a thatched roof, the house has a fascinating history and is believed to date from the 17th Century with later additions. The house is full of character and is a wonderful family home with well-proportioned rooms, fireplaces, exposed beams and timbers. Many of the rooms have the benefit of a dual aspect with fine views to the garden and the Selborne Hangers beyond.

Two spacious reception rooms lead from the entrance hall and provide excellent entertaining and family space. The twin aspect sitting room is a beautiful room with an Inglenook fireplace and wood burning stove. The dining room also has a fireplace with a wood burning stove and double doors opening out to the garden. Of note, there is also a study with bespoke oak cabinets and a desk, ideal for home working. The garden room is at the south-east end of the house (set off the sitting room) and enjoys fine views over the garden. The wine cellar is conveniently accessed via the garden room.

The bespoke kitchenbreakfast room has a range of eye and base level oak cabinets, granite work surfaces and integrated appliances including a gas fired Nobel range with an additional electric ceramic hob. A lovely ‘snug‘ room, with a dresser, opens from the kitchenbreakfast room.

The first floor is approached via a broad staircase and includes four bedrooms and a family bathroom. The dual aspect main bedroom has an en suite bathroom and a large walk-in wardrobe.

The gardens have evolved over many years and are a very special feature of the house. The overall grounds complement the mature and established village setting and take full advantage of the changing seasons and exceptional views of the Selborne Hangers.

Lassams is ideally situated in a Conservation Area and adjacent to the High Street in one of Hampshire‘s most unspoilt and characterful villages with stunning views towards The Hangers. Selborne has a strong community with a public house - ‘The Selborne Arms‘, St Mary‘s Church, village hall and Selborne C of E Primary School. The village is set amidst fine Hampshire countryside between the villages of Hawkley and Farringdon within the South Downs National Park. Renowned for its association with Gilbert White, the 18th Century naturalist, the village is home to Gilbert White‘s House and Museum and is surrounded by scenery of outstanding natural beauty lying at the foot of a beech covered hanger. White‘s Café forms part of the Museum and is a popular village meeting place. The larger centres of Liss and Alton collectively provide a range of facilities as well as mainline railway stations to London Waterloo. In addition, the A3 can be accessed at Liss providing a route to London and the south coast.

The house is approached via a pair of hardwood gates and a shingle driveway providing parking and access to the detached double garage. The garage could potentially be converted to provide an external room home office (subject to any necessary consents). The driveway is screened from the garden by mature yew hedging and continues to a triple bay oak framed car barn and workshop. There is an upper storage area over the workshop and an electric vehicle charging point in the bays. A mower shed is set to the side of the car barn.

Gardens and Grounds
The landscaped gardens and grounds are primarily to the south and west and take full advantage of the beautiful setting and glorious views to the Selborne Hangers. There is a very well-positioned Amdega summerhouse and expanses of brick edged lawn set between mature beech and low lonicera hedgerows together with banks of flowering shrubs, spring bulbs and a variety of young and mature trees including a small orchard of apple cordons. There are a variety of areas of interest including a ‘knot garden‘ set around a fountain to the south-east corner of the garden and an area of low stone walling and a tall urn set centrally to the rear boundary. Of note, there is also a small former granary set on four staddle stones. A broad brick terrace adjoins the sitting room and dining room and provides an ideal outside seating area. A well (believed to be the deepest in the village) stands to the rear of the house.

In all the gardens and grounds extend to about 0.82 of an acre.
