Holly Cottage is a beautiful, Grade II listed cottage that was completely rethatched in 2012. It's located in the heart of this picturesque, most sought after village. A wonderful cottage garden leads to a detached double garage (further potential) with additional parking.
The cottage reputedly dates back to the 14th century in parts and exudes charm throughout, with an abundance of original features including exposed beams and floorboards. The property was re-thatched in 2012. On entering the cottage, the sitting room is to the right, with a beautiful inglenook fireplace with bread oven and woodburner. The dining room leads through to the kitchen as well as a rear vestibule with door to the rear garden and a WC. On the upper floor are two double bedrooms, both with exposed beams and floorboards. Both bedrooms are served by the family bathroom.
The picturesque village of Boxford stands astride the River Lambourn. The centre of the village is a Conservation Area with a number of attractive period houses and cottages together with the Parish Church of St Andrew. Boxford also has a public house while more comprehensive amenities of the market town of Newbury are approximately 5 miles away and include a train station with an excellent service to London Paddington within the hour. The A34 and M4 are easily accessible. There is an excellent range of schooling available in the local area, both state and private, and the surrounding countryside is renowned for its walking and riding opportunities.
Approached via a pretty front garden with pathway to the front door, the property is set back from the road at an angle. To the rear is a delightful cottage garden which has a central pathway between the two lawned areas with two patios providing a choice of seating areas, one flanked by an established wisteria. The garden is well stocked with a variety of cottage garden plants and shrubs, providing a riot of colour throughout the spring and summer. A gate leads through to a parking area to the rear for 2/3 cars in front of the detached double garage which offers further potential to become a studio / home office, subject to consents.
