A charming semi-detached cottage of immense character standing close to the heart of the village with a southerly facing rear garden. It is believed that this is only the second time in 70 years that the cottage has been available for sale. The existing owners have sympathetically updated and extended over recent years whilst still retaining all of its inherent character with fireplaces, exposed beams and exposed brick walling. The overall accommodation is larger than first anticipated and includes a lovely and very welcoming entrance hall / living room extending into the sitting room. Both rooms have fireplaces with wood burning stoves and combine to create a very flexible and inviting living space. The careful extension to the rear has created a large kitchen/dining room with underfloor heating and French doors opening out to the terrace and rear garden. The kitchen/dining room provides a fine outlook over the garden and is fitted with a bespoke range of cabinets together with an electric range, breakfast bar, integrated dishwasher, fridge, freezer wine refrigerator and granite work surfaces. There are four bedrooms (with fitted wardrobes to bedrooms 1 and 2). The updated shower room is completed with a large shower, WC and pedestal wash hand basin together with travertine and mosaic tiled walls. Of note, plumbing has been laid to the third bedroom to enable the creation of a further shower / bath room, if required.
The beautiful village of Bentworth is set amidst fine Hampshire countryside and has an active community with a public house, church, hall and St Mary's primary school. The popular market town of Alton provides a range of individual shops together with weekly and specialist markets, Waitrose, M&S Simply Food, cinema, sports centre, two secondary schools, sixth form college and station to London Waterloo.
The cottage has a very well-tended landscaped garden providing a variety of areas of interest and a principally south-west aspect. The rear garden is set around a lawn with well stocked flower borders and a variety of young and mature shrubs. A large paved terrace adjoins the kitchen/dining room and provides an ideal outside seating area as well as a pair of useful storage cupboards. Steps lead from here to a further area of paved terrace with a fine outlook over the garden. Of note, a base for a summer house / garden room has been laid with electric and water/waste pipes in situ. There is an enclosed chicken run to the rear of the garden.
