A beautiful thatched cottage, built in a traditional style by a local builder in 1991. One of a terrace of three distinctive cottages, it has the charm of a period property, but with the conveniences sought by today’s buyers. There is plenty of space, excellent head height, built-in wardrobes in each of the three bedrooms and two bath/shower rooms. The cottage is located in an idyllic setting within the South Downs National Park, with glorious walks from the doorstep. The Tichborne Arms pub is a just a short stroll away.
The cottage has been improved by the current owners and is presented in good condition throughout. The property is approached via a gate with path to the front door, which opens to the entrance hall, where there is a study, a cloakroom and stairs leading up to the first floor. The heart of the home is the fabulous kitchen, which has a range of fitted units, integrated appliances and worktops. A wall has been removed to create a large open plan room combining the spacious dining room with the kitchen. A newly-built utility room adjoins the kitchen, with a door to the garden. Off the entrance hall, a door opens to the large sitting room, featuring a fireplace and French doors, which open to a conservatory, with doors to the garden.
Upstairs is the landing, with an airing cupboard and access to the part-boarded loft via a hatch with a fitted loft ladder. There are three double bedrooms with wardrobes, a bathroom and an en-suite shower room off the main bedroom.
There is a lawned garden to the front bordered by a low fence. A gate to the side of the cottage leads through to the delightful rear garden, which is mainly laid to lawn, with a paved seating area adjoining the rear of the cottage, a selection of flower and shrub borders, some fruit trees and a path to the rear that leads to a gate and to the parking area and garage.
Tichborne is a small village located in between the market town of Alresford and the larger village of Cheriton. It is off the beaten track with little passing traffic, but is conveniently located just 5 minutes’ drive from Alresford, where there is a range of independent shops and traders, and about 15 minutes from Winchester, where there is a more extensive range of shops and facilities. Tichborne is surrounded by attractive Hampshire countryside, with lovely walks in various directions, some of which follow The River Itchen, a natural chalk stream known for trout.
