Full Details

On entering the cottage the Sitting Room to the front centres on a cast iron open fireplace with a slate hearth, flanked by fitted cupboards with shelving above. The Kitchen/Breakfast Room has ample shaker style cupboards and a 4-ring gas cooker, oven and grill; this space opens into the Conservatory providing a lovely family area overlooking the delightful gardens. On the first floor are two double bedrooms and a stylish family bathroom which was refitted in 2019 with a Moroccan style tiled floor, white metro tiles and traditional sanitaryware. A particular selling feature of this wonderful family home is the master suite which is situated on the top floor and converted by my clients in 2019; this spacious bedroom has two sets of fitted wardrobes and a glazed wall with Juliette balcony providing far reaching views. There is a stunning en suite Shower Room which has been elegantly fitted with traditional sanitaryware and a spacious Shower. The back garden has been thoughtfully planted with mature shrub borders flanking a low maintenance astro turf lawn; there are two deck terraces designed to capture the morning and evening sun and at the end of the garden is a good-sized Summerhouse, heated with power and light, perfect if working from home. There is a wooden gardeners shed behind. Additionally, there is gated side access.

Bishops Waltham centre is within easy walking distance from the cottage and provides everything you could want for family life; there are excellent amenities, small independent shops and boutiques, cafés, public houses and restaurants. A good local bus service runs from The Square to Hedge End, Fareham and Winchester and fast trains run from Southampton Parkway eight miles away servicing trains to London Waterloo. The cottage lies close to the South Downs National Park, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with over 600 square miles of breathtaking countryside with the South Downs Way trail running its entire length between Winchester and Eastbourne.
