A beautifully bright, spacious Edwardian home in the heart of Church Crookham. With 4 double bedrooms and 3 reception rooms, this is a well balanced home with a wonderful feeling of space within walking distance of shops and schools.
This beautiful home features high ceilings, big windows and large rooms throughout giving it a wonderful feeling of space and calm.
The large hallway opens on to all reception rooms. The dual aspect sitting room opens on to the garden at the back and overlooks a terrace to the side. With an open fireplace and polished hardwood floors this room is large enough to accommodate a sitting area and music area.
The kitchen/living/dining room features a large kitchen with pantry, breakfast bar and living space with Velux windows and double doors opening on to the garden. A separate utility room finishes this bright, practical ‘day room’.
The generous dining room has an open fire and dual aspect windows while the family room – also ideal as an office – features a gas fire.
The wide, open staircase leads to a wonderfully large, bright landing area with space for storage and seating, leading on to all rooms.

The house sits on a 1/3 acre plot. The garden is mostly laid to lawn and wraps around two sides of the house. South facing, the back garden has a large terrace with a second terrace to the side of the house surrounded by mature shrubs.
The large gravelled driveway includes a double garage and space for 6 additional cars.

I moved here when the children were getting older, we really needed bigger bedrooms and more living space. This house ticked the boxes and with the wonderful high ceilings and big windows it feels even bigger than it is.
I’ve been here 16 years now and I love everything about the house. Every room feels comfortable for me and I have the space to do everything I want. I love to entertain and it works really well here with guests wandering between the kitchen, garden and living room. I get the sun in the evening in the garden so it’s great for summer dinner parties.
The family room is a quiet corner of the house we’ve all valued over the years. I’m an avid reader and it’s the perfect spot to read and relax. We have an unwritten rule that if the door’s shut, someone is using it so leave them be!
My bedroom is a lovely piece of home for me, it gets plenty of sun and with the walk-in wardrobe and en-suite it’s perfect as an escape and for lazy mornings in bed.
This area has a whole variety of restaurants, one of my favourites is Two Spoons where I regularly meet friends for brunch. The Foresters pub is next to Velmead common, perfect for a walk then a pub lunch. Velmead common is incredibly well used with walkers, cyclists and children playing, it’s very safe there. Tweseldown Racecourse is also very good for walks, I feel very safe and connected to the community on my jaunts!
There are plenty of independent retailers in Fleet, it’s a vibrant high street. For a bigger shop I go to Guildford, Basingstoke or Reading.
It’s very easy to get around from here. I can walk to the shop in 3 minutes, 4 pubs are within a 15 minute walk and Fleet town centre is just over a mile away. Over the years I’ve worked in London and Reading which are an easy commute by car or train, the airports are a quick journey too.
I’m retired now and don’t need all this space so it’s time to downsize and let another family enjoy the house which I know they will, it’s been a wonderful home for my family.
