Charming Grade II Listed cottage
55 Northbrook Street
Myrtle Cottage is a very pretty detached thatched cottage in a lovely rural location with views over open countryside.
To the front of the cottage is a well-proportioned sitting room with exposed beams, a large brick fireplace providing a warm and welcoming feeling and brick and tiled floor. A large window overlooking the front garden adds light and gives the room a spacious feeling. Adjoining the sitting room is the double aspect dining room with views to the front and side.
The large kitchen/breakfast room is well equipped with plenty of storage space in pale green coloured wall and floor units with white worktops, space for both cooker and dishwasher and plenty of room for a dining table.
Leading on from the kitchen is a good sized conservatory with tiled flooring which enjoys views over the rear garden and fields beyond.
To complete the ground floor, there is a convenient utility room with door to the outside accessed from the kitchen and a cloakroom.
Upstairs there are three good-sized bedrooms and the family bathroom. The master bedroom has a high beamed ceiling, a fitted wardrobe and cupboard and overlooks the front garden. The two other bedrooms both have fitted cupboards.
The cottage is approached via a five bar gate through to a gravel driveway which provides ample off-road parking for numerous cars and a garage.
The front garden is lawned with hedging and a pathway leading up to the front door. A small side gate takes you through to the rear garden, mainly lawned with flower and shrub borders to the sides, a summerhouse and a fence at the bottom with fields beyond. There is a graveled area immediately outside the conservatory, ideal for a table and chairs
The picturesque village of St Mary Bourne, is a popular village in the beautiful Bourne valley. The surrounding countryside is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and there are great opportunities for walking, riding and other country activities.
The village itself has an active local community with a shop, 2 public houses, church, village hall and excellent primary school. Nearby Whitchurch offers a wider variety of shops, pubs and restaurants and the larger towns of Andover and Newbury provide an extensive range of shopping and leisure facilities.
Road and rail connections are very good with fast trains from Andover and Whitchurch into London Waterloo and from Newbury into London Paddington. There is very good access to the A303/M3 and the A34/M4.
The area is well served for schools including Farleigh, Thorngrove, Horris Hill, Cheam, Downe House, Marlborough College and Bradfield College.
From Winchester follow the A34 taking the exit for the B3400/Tufton/Whitchurch/Overton and keep right to continue onto Winchester Street.
