Set in just over 2 acres, and occupying an elevated position, a two bedroom detached bungalow, private drive and gardens.

2 Grasshills occupies an elevated position on the edge of the sought after village of Aldbourne. The house is approached by a sloping tarmac drive, there is a mature beach hedge bordering three of the four boundaries. There are lawns either side of the drive. The gardens also circulate the side and rear of the property.
Immediately abutting the rear garden are two gently sloping grass paddocks. They are divided by a post and railed fence. There are views from the paddocks across Aldbourne and rolling countryside in the distance. The best views can be found from the 'top' and Westerly boundary of the paddocks. There is a field shelter/stables (which could benefit from improvement) just moments from the house. There is a gated entrance situated on the Westerly most edge providing additional access to and from the field which leads immediately onto a bridleway (see additional photos). Riding in the area is considered to be excellent.
The house constitutes a 2 bedroom detached bungalow which could benefit from modernisation/extension or re-development (subject to any necessary consents). There is a front and rear door into the house. The front door leads into the hall, to the right is a double aspect sitting room. The kitchen looks over the rear garden and up across the paddocks to the woodland in the distance. There are two double bedrooms and a family bathroom. There is a conservatory to the rear and a single garage to the Northerly side of the house.
Access to Grasshills can either by through the village green (immediately past the Blue Boar) or via Lottage Road.
