Occupying an enviable position in the heart of East Grimstead, Manor Cottage is a delightful semi-detached house believed to date back pre 1800 with period features such as exposed wooden beams and an inglenook fireplace. In recent years the property has undergone a programme of modernisation throughout including the installation of an oil fired boiler and new windows. It provides spacious, tastefully decorated family accommodation planned over two floors. On the ground floor there is a large kitchen/breakfast room with marble worktops, slate floor and exposed beams over the windows and French doors onto the front garden. The sitting room, which also has exposed wooden beams and a limed, smoked oak floor, benefits from a charming inglenook fireplace with wood burner and French doors onto the front garden. A welcoming entrance hall, cloak room and utility room make up the remainder of the ground floor. On the first floor there are three sizeable bedrooms and a well-appointed family bathroom. There is scope to extend into the extensive loft which has been insulated between the rafters.
Idyllically situated to the southeast of Salisbury and to the north of the New Forest, East Grimstead is an attractive village nested in an area of scenic wooded countryside. Manor Cottage is a short walk across open fields from the beautiful Bentley Wood, ideal for dog walking, cycling and horse riding. The nearby villages of Alderbury and Pitton have village shops, good primary schools and popular public houses. It is 15 minutes by car to the cathedral city of Salisbury which has a wide range of recreational, cultural and shopping facilities including a market, cinema and theatre.
The area is particularly well known for its excellent selection of schools at all levels including two grammar schools: South Wilts Grammar school for Girls and Bishops Wordsworth Grammar school for Boys, the Cathedral School, Leadenhall, Godolphin, Chafyn Grove, Leehurst Swan and Norman Court schools.
Communication links in the area are excellent with easy access to the A36, M27 and M3 accessing London and the north. Winchester is an easy commute and there are regular train services to London Waterloo from Grateley, Salisbury and Southampton Parkway.
The southwest facing rear garden is enclosed and mainly laid to lawn with an array of pretty herbaceous flora, trees and shrubs. There is a useful patio area ideal for al-fresco entertaining and a large garden shed, kennel/tool store and log store. The property is accessed by a large gravel driveway providing off-road parking for multiple vehicles and scope for a garage. A gate gives access to the enclosed and secluded front garden with a variety of trees and shrubs.
