A delightful Grade II listed cottage located in an idyllic setting in the middle of this picturesque village, just a few miles to the north-east of Alresford. The cottage retains many period features including an inglenook fireplace and exposed beams, and has the benefit of having plenty of storage. There is secure driveway parking, and a lovely cottage garden, which fronts onto the pond.
The property is approached via a picket gate in a flint wall, with a path leading to an enclosed entrance porch at the front of the cottage. The front door opens into the inviting living room, which features a beamed ceiling and a large inglenook fireplace with original bread oven. The long kitchen at the back of the cottage features a range of kitchen units, with worktops above and integrated kitchen appliances, which include a dishwasher, washer/drier, oven, hob and filter hood. At the far end of the kitchen there is additional kitchen storage and a freestanding fridge/freezer, which is included in the sale. The cosy sitting room has some useful built-in book shelving/storage. A staircase in the hall leads upstairs, and has an understairs cupboard housing the hot water cylinder. Off the hall is the bathroom, with a white suite comprising a bath, which has the facility for a shower attachment, a wc and wash hand basin.
