A delightful semi-detached period cottage of great character, dating we believe from the 1760's, and set in an idyllic location within the small Hampshire village of Newton Valence. Mellow brick and flint elevations with climbing plants and shrubs are complemented by a tiled roof. The cottage takes full advantage of the features associated with a building of this period with internal features including exposed beams, a wonderful Inglenook fireplace, wooden doors with cottage latches and leaded light windows. The generous living accommodation includes a large sitting room with beams and a substantial Inglenook fireplace. The dining room features a fitted shelved double cupboard and exposed beams while the kitchen is fitted with a modern range of bespoke base cabinets with ceramic tiled work tops, Belling electric oven and Zanussi ceramic hob with a an extractor hood. There is also plumbing for a dishwasher and space for a fridge freezer. A ground floor bathroom and utility / store room (accessed externally) complete the ground floor accommodation. On the first floor there is a landing providing access to a spacious principal bedroom with two fitted wardrobes together with two further bedrooms and a family bathroom fitted with a white suite and partly tiled walls. This is a very appealing and interesting village home with a lovely garden.
The active rural hamlet of Newton Valence has a Church and hall and is set amidst fine Hampshire countryside between the villages of Selborne, Hawkley and Farringdon within the South Downs National Park. The village has an active community with regular events organised by the Newton Valence Village Social Club. Newton Valence also adjoins Selborne Common (managed by the National Trust) which together with the immediate countryside provides ample opportunity for many country pursuits. The larger village of Selborne has a shop/post office, primary school and a public house. The popular Bowtells Farm Shop is in the village of East Tisted along with a shop/post office. The market towns of Alton and Petersfield collectively provide a comprehensive range of facilities as well as railway stations to London Waterloo.
The gardens and grounds are an attractive feature of the cottage and are principally laid to lawn with flower borders and a rockery adjoining the patio. The gardens enjoy a good degree of seclusion with a principally westerly aspect to the rear. To the front of the cottage there is a shingle parking area and a side gate leading to the rear garden.
