Hartley Wintney in Hampshire is a quintessential country village oozing with charm. Voted several years in a row as the best place to live in the UK by The Halifax, there is much on offer. In addition to the practical day to day necessities such as post office, hair dresser, doctor’s surgery and a one stop shop, there’s a traditional butcher, a couple of bakeries, antiques emporiums, boutique shops, cafes and restaurants.
Community and community spirit are central to village life. The cricket club, situated on the village green, is a focal point on lazy weekends during the summer months with many villagers wandering down to watch a game and to enjoy a drink at The Cricketers – the village pub. There’s a golf course and a range of classes and workshops in everything from yoga and sewing to art.
“People who come to buy property here, buy into the village first and fall in love with the house second” says Jane Bailey, Sales Manager at Bewley Homes, whose development Hartley Row Park is situated on the edge of the village and only a ten minute walk from the core of village life.
“Many of our buyers already have some connection to the village but for those new to the area, it is the excellent village amenities in conjunction with good accessibility which makes Hartley Wintney so appealing. Central London can be reached by rail in 55 minutes from Winchfield station (2 miles away) or from Blackwater and both Heathrow and Gatwick international airports are about half an hour and an hour away respectively. For families, there is a choice of school including independent Grey House School; Oakwood Infants which is currently rated as Ofsted outstanding; and Greenfields Junior with an Ofsted rating of Good.”
At Hartley Row Park, buyers really do get the best of both worlds – traditional styled houses constructed and finished to an exacting standard and with all the benefits modern day construction brings including double glazed windows and doors, energy efficient boilers and versatile layouts.
Prices here start at £385,000 for a 2 bedroom semi-detached house.
