A delightful, Grade II listed thatched cottage in the desirable village of Charlton All Saints, this three bedroom home has much character and a wealth of period features. The detached home enjoys lovely countryside views from its semi-rural setting and is built in a traditional brick style with a thatched roof. Though the property has been sympathetically updated it would benefit from further modernisation to the interior décor. The ground floor accommodation is accessed via the central entrance hall, with reception rooms opening off either side including a sitting room and separate dining room, both with an inglenook fireplace and exposed beams. The kitchen is arranged over two levels and leads to a garden room with glazed front and side elevations and a vaulted ceiling. The master shower room is located on the ground floor. On the first floor there are three double bedrooms which interconnect, access is via two separate staircases at either end of the house.
The property is located in the extremely sought after hamlet of Charlton All Saints which is approximately three miles to the south of Salisbury city centre in the scenic Avon valley. There are excellent walks and riding in the Downland countryside and alongside the River Avon. To the south Downton has a number of useful amenities including a range of shops, doctor’s surgery, pubs as well as the Ofsted 'Outstanding' rated Downton Primary School and the Trafalgar School. Whilst to the north Salisbury City Centre offers amenities including a Waitrose and everything the city has to offer including shopping and leisure facilities, cinema, theatre, numerous parks, restaurants and a lively twice weekly market. Communications are excellent with mainline rail services to London Waterloo from Salisbury (85 minutes) or Southampton Parkway (from 66 minutes). Access to the motorway link via the A31 at Ringwood, is from junction 1 of the M27, linking with the M3 to London. The New Forest provides wonderful opportunities for a variety of recreational activities, especially walking, sailing and riding.
The property is set in attractive cottage style gardens enclosed by brick walls to the front. A traditional five-bar gate opens onto a long brick paved driveway which runs along the front of the house, leading to a detached double garage. There are areas of lawn to the front and side, surrounded by a variety of well-established shrubs and border plants, and lovely views over open countryside. The garden also features a paved patio area adjacent to the summer room, creating a pleasant indoor/outdoor entertaining space.
