A charming brick and flint cottage sitting in a stunning rural location a few miles to the north of Alresford.

No onward chain.

A beautiful brick and flint cottage sitting in a wonderful rural location to the north of Alresford. The property has been the subject of a major refurbishment, and has been remodelled and extended to create additional space. There is further scope for improvement, and planning permission is in place for a large extension to the rear ( Planning Ref 19/02560/HOU ). The property is available with the benefit of no onward chain.

The property is approached via a porch, with the front door opening to an entrance hall, with a coats cupboard and stairs to the first floor. To the left is the spacious sitting room, with a fireplace and a bay window overlooking fields. The galley kitchen has a range of units, drawers and worktops, with an adjoining cloakroom and door to the garden. The dining room has a fireplace and French doors to the garden, and a door to a study/potential fourth bedroom. A door from the dining room leads through to a new extension, where the main bedroom and adjoining en-suite shower room are located. 

Upstairs, there is a landing with a linen cupboard, and a separate cupboard housing the hot water tank. The first floor has been remodelled and extended to create two good size double bedrooms, each having built-in wardrobes and ensuites.

The front garden is enclosed by mature hedging, with a five bar gate allowing access to a gravelled driveway, from where there is a view over a field. The landowner of the field owns the approach to a gate allowing access to the field. We understand that the gate is rarely used. The owners of Rose Cottage have a right of access over the approach to the field. There is a recently-built garage, with a remotely controlled roller shutter door. In addition, there is an outbuilding, which is used as a workshop and storeroom. 

Swarraton is located just a short drive north of the market town of Alresford and is within an easy walk of The Grange, famous for its annual operatic performances. For lovers of the countryside, this is an idyllic part of Hampshire with beautiful scenery all around. There are excellent walks from the door, and nearby is The Woolpack Inn, which is much favoured by both locals and visitors alike. There are riding stables nearby. Swarraton is located about 8 miles from Winchester and 12 miles from Basingstoke.
