Situated less than a mile from Warsash village and the River Hamble, an attractive semi-detached Victorian cottage, which has been occupied and much loved by my client’s family for 50 years. The accommodation is well proportioned and extends to 1,619 sq ft. The driveway offers parking for numerous cars, double wooden gates to the side offer access to additional parking or for those needing to store a boat. On entering the porch the original front door leads in the Entrance Hall from which the reception rooms and staircase lead off. To the front the Family Room is well proportioned and centres on a Victorian tiled fireplace with gas coal effect fire. The Dining Room is equally a good size with a Victorian fireplace and pretty alcove area providing a seating area with a fitted bench; this room leads into the Kitchen which has been fitted with ample wooden cupboards and showcases a stunning bespoke pine dresser. The beautiful Sitting Room beyond is a later addition, built in the mid 1970’s and is a generous space being some 15’4” in length, with dual aspect doors leading out to the garden. Upstairs are three bedrooms, two of which are large doubles, with Bedrooms 1 and 2 benefitting from extensive wardrobe cupboards. A particular selling feature of this property is the glorious garden which extends to over 100 ft in length and which has everything you could ask for as a keen gardener. There is a large terrace directly outside the Sitting Room which provides a secluded space in which to entertain and relax; beyond there is an area of lawn and leading on down the garden are pretty meandering stepping stones flanked by three wooden arbours with flowering climbers. There is a fantastic fruit cage with blueberry and raspberry canes and a good sized greenhouse, and at the end of the garden are apple, plum and cherry trees. Furthermore there is a large outhouse to the rear providing an excellent space for a workshop or storage.
