A charming brick and flint period cottage, enjoying fabulous countryside views, located on the edge of the popular village of Ropley. The cottage has been sympathetically improved and extended, and offers plenty of versatile family accommodation.
The heart of the home is the fantastic open-plan kitchen/dining room, where the main focus is an island breakfast bar, incorporating an AGA cooker, a built-in oven and hob. The dining room will easily accommodate a sizeable farmhouse table. A door leads to a hallway, with a useful storage cupboard and doors to the garden, and through to the study, which has a fireplace and could equally be used as a family room. An opening from the kitchen leads to the large drawing room, which has an open fireplace and tall windows to the front. A utility room and cloakroom complete the downstairs accommodation. Upstairs, there are four double bedrooms as well as a dressing room, which could easily become an additional single bedroom. The light and spacious principle bedroom has a range of built-in wardrobes and its own ensuite shower room.
The cottage sits on a lovely plot that benefits from having southerly countryside views from all the front facing rooms. Parking is well catered for on the gravel driveway as well as in the timber framed garage, with storage above and an adjoining carport. A side gate leads through to the private and secluded rear garden, with a paved seating terrace, with steps up to the lawned garden. At the rear of the garden is an outbuilding housing a home office, with light, power and internet connection. To the rear of the office is a very useful garden store. The south-facing roof slope has solar panels fitted that produce power for the cottage as well as providing a small additional income from the energy company.

It is a quiet village, but has easy access to the A31 and A32 which allow access to London, Winchester and the Midlands. Mainline rail access to London is from Petersfield and Alton. There is a good primary school in the village with a secondary school in nearby Alresford and sixth form education available in both Winchester and Alton.
