With such a range of properties on the market, it can be a challenge to find a house that meets your needs and desires. Many in this situation consider refurbishing and extending a new house to meet their exact requirements, but of course to do this, you need a house which has the right potential. Here at Mackenzie Smith, we have a variety of unique houses available, many with land, extension options or conversion potential to help satisfy those needs.

Barnfield, Yateley

A rare and unusual property, Barnfield is a non-estate chalet bungalow set in grounds extending quarter of an acre, offering significant scope to add garages and out buildings (STPP). This property presents an impressively versatile 1,500sq ft of living space, making it possible to move straight in while developing the remainder of the property. A flexible double downstairs bedroom could be turned into a family or games room and converted into a larger space by extending into the adjacent study (STPP). A spacious 20ft living room, a contemporary kitchen, a designated dining room and a modern, stylish downstairs shower room already complement this property, as well as a cloakroom and three spacious further bedrooms upstairs. To the rear, a substantial area of green, surrounded by mature trees and hedges, benefits from the addition of a summer house. There is plenty of space for landscaping and modification within the grounds. Set in close proximity to Yateley Common’s areas of natural beauty, the location of this property is ideal for a family, offering excellent schools as well as a Waitrose and Blackwater Valley Golf course.


Brackenhurst, Ewshot

Brackenhurst is a unique detached country home, set in a breath-taking three and a half acres of immaculate, expansive gardens, offering wonderful panoramic views of rolling countryside and featuring an adjoining pasture paddock and a range of outbuildings. Presenting an incredible and rare opportunity for substantial additions (STPP), this property shows a high standard of order throughout. The main residence features a spacious living room extending to 22ft and a characterful bay display window; double doors open into the garden and a dual aspect outlook takes full advantage of the beautiful countryside views on offer. There are three luxuriously spacious double bedrooms, with the master an extensive 18ft. To top it off, a generous L-shaped kitchen could even be widened and extended (STPP). Already adjoining a conservatory, this is highly suited as an entertainment space which could be even more expansive, perhaps including a bar area (STPP).
Practical outbuildings offer a double detached garage, tractor barn, storage shed, a further garage, a sizeable workshop with access to an implements store room and a shed. Most of these outbuildings are highly useful for agricultural work and some could even be converted into other desirable spaces and there is plenty of land to work with to create further buildings (STPP). Situated in a picturesque rural location, the grounds are set conveniently just off Farnham Road, near the villages of Ewshot and Crondall.

Mud Cottage, Hartley Wintney

If you are looking for a property set in a lovely village location, then Mud Cottage could be the home for you, as it offers fabulous potential with some modernisation and an impressive quarter of an acre plot of land. A spacious entrance hall with double doors opens to a sizeable living room with the added allure of a feature fireplace. A kitchen, bathroom, lobby and rear porch reside at the rear of the house, providing plenty of scope for renovation (STPP). Should you wish to extend the property to the rear, further rooms could be added, such as a dining room or conservatory, or even an expansive modern open plan kitchen/diner (STPP). A large double bedroom and a good sized single bedroom residing upstairs suggest potential for an extensive master suite (STPP).
The impressive expanse of lawn available with Mud Cottage offers not only a high degree of privacy, but also ample opportunity to add outbuildings or create extensive areas for entertainment, with picturesque views over surrounding countryside adding to the ambience. The front of the property also offers space for a detached double garage and would still have enough space for parking a number of vehicles.

Chingford Road, Farnborough

This home has already been extended and offers a well-presented, extensive living space with plenty of scope to extend further (STPP). If you are looking for a home close to local amenities, this is ideally situated within walking distance of the town centre, station and reputable schools. Offering modern living accommodation with numerous and generously sized living spaces, a large living room resides at the front of this property, presenting a luxurious reception room enjoying a characterful bay window and a fireplace. The living room is open plan to the dining room, which has a partially glazed door to the garden, surrounded by illuminating feature windows. A lengthy galley kitchen/breakfast room is another generous feature of this property and adorned in quarry tiled flooring, running adjacent to the study this could be widened into an even larger space (STPP). A versatile dual aspect family room is set alongside a study and a fully tiled shower room, at the rear of the house, providing ample scope for further adaptation or enhancement (STPP). Upstairs are two large double bedrooms and a well-proportioned single room, as well as a bathroom offering the potential to create an en suite for the master bedroom (STPP).
Despite the urban location and size of this property, there is still a generous rear garden measuring in excess of 60ft, further space which could be utilised to extend (STPP), or to perhaps create the addition of a summer house.

High Street, Odiham

This converted character apartment features living accommodation spread across two floors and is set right at the heart of the historical village of Odiham, imbued with culture and enveloped in farmland and countryside.
