About this property

TENURE: Freehold

A delightful semi-detached period cottage in a wonderful rural location with much character. The ground floor flows seamlessly from one room to the next, with a lovely light sitting room featuring a wood-burning stove and bay window. The sitting room opens through to a separate dining room which in turn leads to the conservatory which has double doors out on to the terrace. The kitchen/breakfast room is a sociable room, having space for family dining.

On the first floor are two double bedrooms, both with fitted cupboards, and a third smaller bedroom. The bathroom is well appointed with a white suite. There is an excellent eaves cupboard which offers useful storage space.

The property forms part of a cluster of rural properties within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and surrounded by glorious countryside. The nearby village of Ecchinswell offers a thriving community, a church and the well regarded Royal Oak public house. There is both a nursery and primary school within Ecchinswell as well as an excellent range of both private and state schools in the general locality making it an ideal choice for families. The location offers access to the major centres of Basingstoke and Newbury with mainline rail access to both Waterloo and Paddington respectively within the hour. Overton station is also accessible as well as the M3 & M4 motorways. Further amenities can be found either in the village of Kingsclere or Newbury town itself.

One of only a handful of similar properties, the cottage is located in a quiet lane surrounded by glorious countryside and overlooking Watership Down. A small front garden is bordered by picket fencing, with a driveway at the side of the cottage leading to the rear. A wooden 5 bar gate provides access to a gravelled parking area for 4 or more vehicles and there is also a paved terrace adjacent to the property. Beyond, the garden is mainly laid to lawn with a well stocked flower border and a kitchen garden. There are also log stores and a useful timber shed. Rural views both to the front and rear are just stunning.
