Crest Nicholson is pleased to launch a contemporary mix of 74 two, three, four and five bedroom houses at its new development, Ackender Hill, in Hampshire. Located in the historic market town of Alton, these stunning new properties are perfect for young families looking for a modern home in a countryside setting.


Nestled within ancient woodland, the homes are traditional in design and blend seamlessly into the town surroundings. The bright open-plan kitchen and living areas, fitted with high quality appliances, offer residents flexibility and the opportunity to make a house their own. All properties boast private gardens, ideal for spending time with growing families or entertaining guests.

The development is perfectly positioned with Alton town centre less than a 10 minute drive away, giving residents the chance to make the most of an excellent array of restaurants, high street retailers, cafes and pubs. For those with children, there are many schools nearby – from nursey up to senior school – including The Butts Primary School and Chawton Church of England Primary School, both rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted. Alton also sits halfway between the University of Surrey at Guildford and the University of Winchester.  


Eileen Guihen, Sales and Marketing Director at Crest Nicholson South, comments: “We are excited to launch this collection of high quality houses at Ackender Hill, which is set to be a modern, thriving development. Residents will be able to enjoy a fantastic quality of life and thriving community in the picturesque town of Alton, while remaining within easy reach of London and beyond. This development has already been very popular amongst first time and young homebuyers who are looking for extra space, so with just a few homes remaining we encourage interested purchasers to get in contact with our friendly sales team to book an appointment.”


Once complete, Ackender Hill will also be home to a 10 hectare country park, providing pedestrian links to wider foot and cycle networks nearby. Residents will also find the South Downs National Park on their doorstep. The green space is great for weekend walks and outdoor activities, as well as visits to the historic Chawton House and the home of writer Jane Austen. Route 224 of the National Cycle Network is also nearby, offering residents stunning views of the Hampshire countryside.


With Alton train station nearby, residents will be able to get a direct service to London Waterloo in just over an hour, as well as enjoy the Watercress Line – a restored steam railway running between Alton and New Arlesford. The town is also well-served by the A31, providing access to the M3 at Winchester and Basingstoke.

Prices at Ackender Hill start from £385,000 for a two bedroom house and £420,000 for a three bedroom property. Select homes will be available to purchase through the Help to Buy: Equity Loan scheme and Crest Nicholson’s Part Exchange and SmoothMove schemes.
