No more than a third of a mile from the centre of Alton, Berehurst offers a mix of spacious two and three-bedroom cottages, apartments and bungalows, set around two courtyards landscaped with lawns, herbaceous borders and shrubs. The four acres of grounds beyond, bordered by a restored steam railway, are home to an all-weather tennis court and swimming pavilion with changing rooms.
Alton is an historic town with many fine buildings, dating from its days as a coaching route. Today it is a bustling centre with a good range of leisure facilities, shops and supermarkets, including Waitrose and Marks & Spencer. Transport links are good, with a mainline station in the town. Opportunities to walk abound, with the beautiful beech woods of Selborne Common and the whole of the South Downs right on your doorstep and the estate itself offering fine views over the town and surrounding countryside. The area is also home to a number of interesting museums and galleries, in addition to the houses once lived in by authoress Jane Austen and the ornithologist Gilbert White.
Cognatum Estates Limited maintains, repairs and insures all the buildings, arranges the window cleaning and refuse collection and tends to the gardens and grounds. There is a personal alarm system in every property and Resident Estate Managers are available to provide support and a helping hand when needed making this an ideal 'lock up & leave' property.
The cost of providing the services is shared equally between all properties. There are no restrictions on owning a property except that one resident must be over 60 years of age.
999 year lease (from 1984). No ground rent.
