An imposing Grade II listed house within this rarely available rural hamlet set in about 0.9 of an a

The Old Cottage, is a handsome Grade II listed house, believed to date from 1686 as indicated on a plaque set into the facade of early Hampshire brick above the fine oak door. This opens into the dining hall with its beamed ceiling and a brick and beam corner fireplace housing a wood burning stove. The sitting room is also beamed with an open fireplace and a bay window giving an attractive outlook over the garden. The kitchen has been comprehensively fitted with wall and floor units and an island unit together with an oil-fired AGA.

Stairs lead up to the bedrooms in the main house. The master bedroom has recently been comprehensively fitted with wardrobes/cupboards and hidden behind a pair of doors is a hand basin. There is also a hand basin in the spacious bedroom 2 with its dual aspect over the garden. There is generous cupboard storage in the bedrooms and in the loft. In the main house there are two further bedrooms and a family bathroom.

The breakfast room, with views up the garden, and the utility room, link the main house and the annexe. This area has been converted by the vendors to create bedroom 5 and a bathroom (a garden door gives access also to this area).

Above the double garage, accessed by internal stairs are two further rooms, ideal for a study/playroom.

This property has 0.9 acres of land.

Outside

The house is set behind a high beech hedge. The sweep of drive leads to the double garage and a brick path leading to the oak front door. The main garden is accessed from the drive through an unusual clematis clad gate or within the house a stable door in the rear hall to a paved terrace. The main lawn of the garden is bounded by a low brick wall and a mature rose border and in a corner the summer house. A brick path and steps lead up to the swimming pool (full but currently not commissioned) which is protected by hedge. Beyond the garden, also grassed, undulates to the post and rail fencing, with country views in all directions and broken by mature conifers and shrubs. To the side of the house is the orchard, log store and in a corner an equipment building and storage shed.
