Jayswood Cottage is a delightful and charming Grade II Listed Hampshire timber framed house believed to date from the 17th century with early 19th century and 20th century additions. It sits in a picturesque setting in a pleasant rural situation surrounded by fields and farmland. The house retains all its inherent character and charm and has also benefited from substantial renovation by the present owner since 1993. The painstaking renovation work has been undertaken with great care using traditional methods and materials as required. The very flexible and delightfully beamed accommodation is arranged over two floors and features the original period staircase and a new solid oak staircase, having been installed in 1993 to provide easier access to the second floor. The accommodation comprises a sitting room, dining room, snug and a family room currently used as a music room. There is also a spacious and very well fitted kitchen/breakfast room with a separate well designed utility room and cloakroom. On the first floor there is a main bedroom with fitted cupboards together with an en suite shower room with power shower. The family bathroom is well fitted with bath and power shower and there are also three further bedrooms and a study separated from the landing by oak framed glass inserts providing a useful sound barrier, but designed to let light flow through to the landing.
The house stands in attractive well laid out gardens and grounds which have been superbly planted and stocked by the present owner to provide a 'plantsmans dream'. There is also a well stocked pond and the gardens and grounds enjoy complete privacy and seclusion. This is a rare opportunity to acquire an historic period property in a lovely quiet rural setting surrounded by fields and farmland.
The house is set in a very attractive location, historically known as Hawthorn, about one mile to the east of the village of Four Marks, between the villages of East Tisted, Ropley and Four Marks. Four Marks village enjoys the facilities of a Primary School, Church, parade of shops and public house. Jayswood Cottage enjoys a secluded and highly sought after location, yet is within easy reach of the A31 providing quick and easy access to the A3 and M3 linking London, the South Coast and beyond. The nearby market towns of Alton and Alresford both provide a good range of local facilities and there is also a mainline railway station connecting London, Waterloo at Alton. The well known and highly renowned Perins Secondary School is also within easy access at Alresford.
The house is set behind mature hedging providing a good degree of privacy and seclusion from the lane. The approach from the lane is via a gravelled drive and car parking area which also provides access to the double garage within the barn. The barn also features further generous space presently utilised by the owner as a gym and an additional garden store area. The barn is approximately 68’ in length and is a useful feature of the property.As previously mentioned the gardens and grounds are a true gardeners dream, stocked with a wide variety of mature and established specimen plants, shrubs and trees. A number of pathways meander through the garden providing interesting views and vistas and it is further complemented by a large pond. The gardens and grounds amount to about 0.83 of an acre in all.
