SOLD SUBJECT TO CONTRACT

Keller Williams are delighted to market the wonderful Bears Barn, a 5 reception room, 4 bedroom detached family house on the outskirts of Hartley Wintney . It is set in half an acre of grounds, has a fascinating history and is so perfect for entertaining that there will be many more stories to be told in the future.

The History

Bears Barn intriguingly gets its name from the fact dancing bears were shown at the property to people travelling to London. There is a "History of Hartley Wintney" picture in the house illustrating this which is also in the photos here. The oldest part of the house is the dining room and 2 of the bedrooms which date from 1740 and amongst its previous owners was Admiral Sir Richard Onslow, Captain of HMS Ashanti

The room which is now the study was added in Victorian times and was originally the kitchen which you realise when looking at the cupboards with airholes and false backs. It is believed the living room nursery and master bedroom were added in the 1920s.

The Property

Today, Bears Barn is a wonderful large house, perfect for a family and entertaining with a lovely big garden to relax and play in. One of the unique features of the house is all the reception space available and the fact each of the rooms has its own character and identity. The privacy of the study with its high ceilings, the sunny playroom overlooking the garden, the sitting room with its fireplace and log burning stove, the dining room suitable for a banquet and the kitchen diner as the heart and hub of the house. The ground floor also has a utility room and downstairs cloakroom.

Upstairs are 4 double bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and there is planning approved to further extend the upper floors. (Details are available from the agent)

The garden provides patio areas for entertaining as well as large expanses of lawn and mature trees and shru
