Hampshire is full of interesting properties, from million pound mansions to equestrian estates and modern apartments. Every home tells a story and with a booming housing market there is plenty for sale.
A unique property currently on the market with Rightmove is the cozy cottage along West Street in Alresford. The Grade II listed construction would be easy to pass by and not notice.
However, the property is full of character inside and could make an ideal home for a small family. The period features make the house an attractive prospect for those looking for something a little different from the new build that is now appearing in Hampshire.

The listing is described as a “Georgian cottage full of warm, cozy spaces and wonderful charm” that make it a charming home. Although quite small from the outside, the house is actually spread over four floors with plenty of space to adapt the rooms to the needs of the owner.
Exposed beams along the hallway and in the living and dining room create an authentic feel to the property, while the electric wood burner in the living room is the perfect place to ‘curl up at the end of a day. very busy”. The kitchen/breakfast room is fitted out in a galley style with an island, providing owners with a ‘beautiful character and social space’.
The heart of the house is the dining room which has a recently installed wood burning stove and the southern position of the room allows it to take advantage of the sun streaming through its windows. A door leads down to the cellar, a space that could be converted into a bedroom, boudoir or home office.
The first and second floors of the chalet house the bedrooms and the family bathroom. The master bedroom benefits from high ceilings and views over Georgian rooftops and the town with stairs from here leading to the top floor of the chalet.
At the top of the building there is room for another bedroom and access to the adjacent attic. Another particularity of this sale is that the chalet offers the possibility of buying a second property.
The attic is a separate two bedroom converted barn behind the chalet which could be treated as an annex. There are a myriad of options for this, including independent living for family/grandparents, the ability to run a business from home, or the opportunity to create additional income.
The biggest downside to the property is the lack of outdoor space. The courtyard garden is a great place to relax in the summer, but there is no green space to enjoy it.
This property offers easy access to local shops, butchers and pubs, as well as riverside walks and National Trust properties. At the £425,000 market, the sale has no chain, so it’s the perfect place to jump in quickly.
