A most attractive Grade II Listed cottage of considerable charm and character. Formerly Upper Silkstead farmhouse and dating back to the 17th Century, the cottage is listed as one of 'Hampshire's treasures' in a survey by the county council of local heritage assets. The current owners have thoughtfully and sensitively refurbished the cottage rediscovering and enhancing the original features including an impressive Inglenook fireplace, exposed beams and former smoking room with the original meat hooks still in situ. If further accommodation is required there is the potential to extend to the rear or convert the attic space subject to the relevant consents. All appointments are via Hamptons International.
Occupying a delightful position in the historic hamlet of Silkstead surrounded by beautiful open countryside yet with the convenience of the cathedral city of Winchester with its excellent range of cultural, leisure and retail facilities within 5.5 miles. Despite the rural location communication links are first class with rail services into London Waterloo from Shawford and Winchester, whilst the M3 provides access to the national road network and Southampton Airport is within 9 miles. Outdoor pursuits are well catered for with ample opportunities for walking and riding from the front doorstep, numerous golf courses and sailing on the south coast.
Approached via a sweeping driveway terminating in a parking area outside the cottage for several vehicles. There is a large area of front garden lying beyond the driveway and a well enclosed rear garden benefiting from a south easterly aspect and a good degree of seclusion.
