A delightful semi-detached cottage of great character and history standing close to the heart of the village with a south-west facing rear garden. The cottage has been 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 spacious living space. The careful extension to the rear has created a stunning vaulted kitchen/dining room with underfloor heating and French doors opening out to the rear garden. The kitchen/dining room is the centrepiece of the cottage and is fitted with a bespoke range of cabinets and pan drawers together with an electric Aga, breakfast bar, integrated dishwasher, hob and wine refrigerator. There are four bedrooms (each with fitted wardrobes aside from Bedroom 3). The superb bathroom is completed with a traditional suite including a roll top bath, WC and pedestal wash hand basin. This is a very special opportunity to purchase a charming cottage in a gorgeous village setting.
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 good range of individual shops together with weekly and specialist markets, Waitrose food shop, Sainsbury’s and M & S Simply Food, cinema, sports centre, two secondary schools, sixth form college and station to London.
The cottage has the most attractive and well-tended landscaped garden providing a variety of areas of interest and a principally south-west aspect. The rear garden is set around a shaped lawn with well stocked flower borders, a variety of young and mature shrubs and vegetable garden. A paved terrace adjoins the kitchen/dining room and provides an ideal outside seating area. Steps lead from here to a further area of paved terrace providing a perfect setting for outdoor entertaining. Immediately to the rear, there are a pair of useful storage cupboards. To the rear of the garden, there is a timber framed greenhouse, garden shed and chicken run with two timber stores to either end.
