About this property

TENURE: Freehold

A handsome individual detached cottage of great character standing in a tranquil edge of village location in mature grounds of about 0.85 of an acre. The cottage retains all of the features of a building of this period with bright and well-proportioned rooms, high ceilings and large sash windows. The living accommodation includes a twin aspect sitting room with an open fireplace together with a separate dining / family room with a fireplace and wood burning stove. The living accommodation is complemented by a spacious and recently fitted kitchen / breakfast room (2019) with an adjoining utility room and boot room. The kitchen/breakfast room provides an ideal layout for every day family living and is fitted with a range of cabinets, dishwasher, twin steam ovens, induction hob and extractor fan. There are three bedrooms including a twin aspect principal bedroom enjoying fine views and a stylish modern family bath/shower room. The existing owners have carefully improved the cottage with a fully fitted kitchen/breakfast room, new bathroom and heritage sash windows. Of note, there is potential to enhance the house further and take advantage of planning permission that was granted in October 2018 to enlarge the kitchen to create an open plan twin aspect kitchen/dining/family room with sliding doors opening out to the garden (Ref:20472/006).

The active village of Medstead stands amidst fine Hampshire countryside with the market towns of Alton and Farnham to the north-east and the Cathedral city of Winchester to the south-west. The village has a church, public house, primary school, local shops, post office and a number of clubs and societies. Four Marks and Alresford provide a wider range of facilities including the well renowned Perins Secondary School at Alresford. Alton has a good range of high street shops, Waitrose & M&S Simply Food, weekly and specialist markets, senior schools, further education college, Alton School (independent school for boys and girls), sports centre (new in January 2020), two outlying golf courses and mainline station to London Waterloo.

The cottage occupies a beautiful setting with a variety of areas of interest including a 'wildlife' garden and areas of light woodland together with a variety of fruit trees, broad expanses of lawn, bushes and vegetable garden. There are several ideal outside seating areas with views of the paddocks and open countryside beyond. A private shingle driveway is approached via a five bar gate and provides ample parking. Within the garden there is a very useful workshop, greenhouse and shed.
