We’ve been fortunate to be trusted with the sale of a truly remarkable home in the village of Hannington, situated between Basingstoke and Newbury. This home offers heritage and history within a peaceful, idyllic village green setting.
One of Hannington’s most prominent homes, Dickers Farm rests on the border of the village green, next to the Church, within the heart of this quintessentially English, rural village.
As a small hilltop development, Hannington has been formed around the village green, with a selection of distinctive and historic dwellings. Dickers Farm is of local importance; a key visual point within the village landscape, contributing to the overall character of the rural community and the special quality of the Conservation area in which it resides. Hannington is located along the North Wessex Downs, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, bordering Watership Down.
Built in the 17th century, Dickers Farm has seen some modernisation, yet retains many original features. The Grade II listed property radiates classical charm and traditional elegance, with a vast interior offering a wealth of versatile spaces to suit a variety of requirements. Symmetry and order were key features of 17th century architecture, both evident in the aesthetic of the home.
The substantial property encompasses over 4,225 sq ft, presenting four reception rooms, an open plan kitchen, cellar, an annexe, four further bedrooms and two bathrooms. Each reception room offers a varied style and function, whilst presenting grand fireplaces and generous proportions. The open plan kitchen/living/dining room extends over 20ft to create the heart of the home, featuring an inglenook fireplace and an Aga to add to the character appeal. The utility room, cellar, cloakroom, boot room and pantry are all accessible from the kitchen, with the utility room leading onto the shed and detached garage, forming a notable addition to the home by offering a spacious area for appliances.
An annexe forms a real bonus feature to this home, whilst it is in need of refurbishment it presents plenty of scope and potential, benefitting from a private entrance, an 18ft reception room, double bedroom and a cloakroom.
To the first floor of the home, the galleried landing, typical of the period design, leads through to four spacious double bedrooms and a bathroom. Whilst three bedrooms benefit from built-in wardrobes, the master bedroom goes a step further, offering a luxurious en suite which has been refitted with a slipper bathtub.
The home also benefits from over an acre of extensive grounds, offering formal gardens, a paddock, stables and a double garage with electric doors. A conservatory offers panoramic views over these stunning grounds.
From every room in the home you are offered pleasant views over the surrounding village landscape, or the manicured, well-kept, surrounding gardens.
The friendly village of Hannington enjoys a relaxed atmosphere, offering a public house, The Vine and a Country Fair held on the green every two years. Additional community hotspots include Michael’s Field, a football and play area, the Village Hall, a Silver Band and a playgroup. The mature landscape offers plenty of open countryside, with footpaths and bridleways providing excellent circular walks and countryside views.
Basingstoke town offers further conveniences, including a hospital, bustling town centre and excellent commuter links. Basingstoke station serves numerous links to London Waterloo and Reading, whilst the A339 runs alongside the village, connecting to the M3.
