Maytree Cottage was built in 1990 and has remained in the same family since its construction. The link-detached property is tucked down a quiet, private lane and is set in a spacious plot with delightful gardens and is built in the traditional style with brick and tile hung façades. With its rural location, this attractive property provides a wonderful country lifestyle and very pleasant views over the village and surrounding countryside, with its flexible internal layout making the ideal family home. A children’s playground opposite is a further highlight. The characterful property has a number of desirable features such as the open fireplace in the sitting room, and though dated in some areas and in need of some cosmetic updates, would make a fabulous project for the new owner. The layout is very versatile, with the ground floor comprising a 21ft sitting room, separate dining room, conservatory with underfloor heating for year-round comfort and a fully fitted kitchen. This cosy family space features the original units complemented by granite work surfaces. A Rangemaster oven adds to the country feel. A cloakroom completes the ground floor.
On the first floor there are four bedrooms, including a very generous master bedroom with en suite bathroom, two further doubles and a large single. Also upstairs is a separate family shower room.
Occupying a wonderful position in the well-regarded rural village of Bighton, with its village hall and church, the property is set down a peaceful lane surrounded by beautiful woodland walks, filled with bluebells and primroses in the spring. Bighton and the neighbouring hamlet of Gundleton form an active parish, with the charming Georgian market town of Alresford 2.9 miles for amenities. Renowned for its pretty streets lined with 18th-century cottages, there is a wide selection of boutiques, cafes and pubs plus riverside walks along the banks of the River Arle. The M3 provides fast road access to London and more comprehensive selection of amenities can be found in nearby Winchester which has direct rail access to London Waterloo (approx. 1 hour) and additionally Alton Station is within reach for the commuter.

The property is approached over a generous gravel driveway with space for several cars. The driveway leads to a single attached garage, which offers excellent development potential (subject to necessary consents). Parcels of lawn, hedging and established trees and shrubs to the front are further complemented by a well-proportioned south-facing rear garden, with a central lawn bordered by flowerbeds and a paved patio. Mature trees provide a wonderfully secluded feel.
