A pretty cottage situated in the heart of the well known village of Chawton renowned for its long association with Jane Austen.
With scope for modernisation and improvement, the cottage is situated in a quiet and tucked away location close to the centre of the village. Of note, it is believed that this is the first time that the property has been offered for sale in the last fifty years or so. A potential purchaser now has a unique opportunity to enhance and improve the cottage but with the objective of retaining the character and style.
The cottage is not Listed but is in a conservation area and the South Downs National Park. A pretty cottage garden at the front leads to a front door where there is access to a sitting room with a lovely Inglenook fireplace. This leads on to a dining room with brick fireplace which in turn leads onto the kitchen together with a bathroom, separate WC and study/third bedroom.
On the first floor there are two well proportioned bedrooms which are vaulted and therefore enjoy good ceiling height. This is a delightful period cottage in a truly unique and sought after area.
The house stands within the conservation area in the heart of the historic village of Chawton. The village is set around a nucleus of period houses and has an active community with a church, Primary School, public house, coffee shop and museum.
The thriving market town of Alton has a good range of individual shops, cinema, sports centre, two secondary schools, 6th form college and railway station to London Waterloo. The A31 provides a link to the A3 and M3 and provides a link to London, the south west and beyond.
To the front of the property there is a pretty cottage garden with a path leading to the front door. There is a partly walled area of garden to the side of the property leading to a further area of garden to the rear.
The rear garden is mainly laid to lawn with a selection of plants and shrubs. Although there is no off street parking within the curtilage of the property, it is possible to park in the lane (to the front) as there are no parking restrictions.
