Exceptionally well designed apartments with consideration given to lifestyle and convenience, durability and efficiency.
Two bedroom apartments are something of a rarity within the heart of the traditional market town of Alresford, where the main streets are lined with elegant Georgian town houses interspersed with othe architectural gems, which combine to create a highly attractive backdrop for the wide range of amenities.
Ten superb apartments have been designed within a new three storey building, with access to the upper floors via stairs and a lift from a stylish communal entrance hall. Residents will be able to take advantage of the excellent specialist shops and boutiques, places to stop for coffee or lunch, as well as grocery stores and traditional butcher and fishmonger, greengrocer and florist.
Alresford has also become the hub of the UK’s watercress industry which takes advantage of the network of chalk streams and tributaries of the River Alre, which a little further to the south, feeds into the River Itchen, famed for its trout and salmon fishing.
The usual Hazeley high specification and attention to detail will appeal to a range of purchasers, from young professionals looking for a convenient location in an attractive and established setting, downsizers of all ages who are looking to streamline their lifestyle to free up time to explore new adventures, and retired people who recognise the value of having an easy and economical new home in a quiet location yet close to everyday amenities.
Alresford is surrounded by a patchwork of farmland, including watercress beds and fabulous countryside, with the South Downs National Park a little to the South.
The town itself is the perfect place for strolling, especially along Broad Street down to Old Alresford Pond, which was created by Bishop de Lucy in the 12th century for a ready supply of fish and to power mills further downstream.
The town has a rich and varied history, owing much of its affluence to a thriving wool trade through the centuries and its prominence due to the Bishops of Winchester establishing a palace nearby.
There are many sporting activities to be enjoyed in the area with a golf club on the southern fringes of the town and active teams and societies for a wide range of sports.
Cultural activities include the summer season of opera at Grange Park and there are wonderful days to be spent exploring the National Trust’s garden at Hinton Ampner. The Long Barn with its range of home grown lavender products provides another distraction.
The Cathedral city of Winchester is the nearest larger centre and the two communities are linked in many ways, not least due to the historical religious connections and several large family estates in the area.
