Aptly named, this stunning Grade II listed cottage has Jacobean origins with Georgian and Victorian additions and takes its name from its location adjacent to Historic St Peters Church, reported to be amongst the oldest Churches in the Hampshire. The location, is superb, combining tranquillity, with access, on foot, to the wide range local amenities within the Village. For walkers, the local area is a haven, you can walk from the cottage, through the Church yard, and enjoy walks along the Canal tow path, with this leading to the beach, through farmland, culminating in the harbour and Wildlife wetland Haven at Meon Shore.
The cottage is deceptively spacious and on entering, it is immediately apparent that the current owners have lavished care and attention on a sympathetic refurbishment, with features such as wide plank painted and oiled floors, superb fireplaces and beautiful Georgian paned windows flooding the property with light. Many of the rooms have stunning views of the Church Yard, and the breath-taking architecture of the Church itself. On the ground floor the generous Sitting Room focuses on an open fireplace, with the adjacent dining room being well proportioned, again with a fireplace. To the rear, a live in kitchen/breakfast room has a bespoke sink unit with handcrafted cabinets, original cupboards and plenty of space for a Kitchen table, work station and dresser. The original quarry tiled flooring is worn with age and tells a story in itself. The scullery has plumbing for a washing machine, and in turn leads to a wonderful walk in cupboard, begging to be shelved out for use as a larder. The Bathroom, on the Ground floor, has a white suite and an unusual herringbone wood block floor. Approached via a painted turning staircase, the first floor offers three double bedrooms, all with beautiful wooden floors; Bedroom 1 and 2 have stunning fireplaces and views towards the church, exposed timbers and some superb panel work. An adjacent wash room, with wc, is a welcome addition to the first floor.
Outside the garden has a garden gate to the Church yard, and is walled in nature, with pretty beds and borders a small lawn and pleasant sitting area looking towards the Church's steeple. The brick outbuilding is stunning with a vaulted ceiling, exposed brick and timbers and a small mezzanine over; useful for storage, but with some alteration, subject to permissions, could be adapted as a Garden Room or office, or indeed social entertaining space, with this adding to the substantial accommodation already on offer.
