This house that used to be the store for rare Liphook apples is for sale for just £625k.

Osborne Court House in Liphook was converted into a single storey cottage around 50 years ago, before which it originally formed part of a substantial Victorian farm as original apple store, with garaging formed from what was the stabling.

Liphook is known to have been the origin of a rare breed of apples named Bramshott Rectory apples, which are dessert apples.

The apples, which are best in desserts and are hard to find, would have been stored in what is now Osborne Court house along with any other apple breeds grown in the area.

In the centre of the village, the cottage retains its rural roots while still being at the heart of Liphook.

With stone exteriors, the former apple store is draped in flora, and boasts light, airy interiors.
