Situated within the beautiful countryside of the South Downs National Park in a delightful village setting is this historic thatched cottage with much charm. Believed to have been built in the 1500s and later extended in the 1700s and 1960s, the property has a fantastic array of characterful features including beamed ceilings, brick inglenook fireplaces and wooden wall panelling, complemented by more modern additions including a sun room. Though the property has been well looked after it does require some modernisation and would make an excellent development project for the right owner. On the ground floor there are three reception rooms including separate living and dining rooms and a sun room, a kitchen and utility/boot room, and access to a lower ground floor cellar. The first floor bedrooms are arranged around a central landing and include a master bedroom with en suite shower room, four further bedrooms and a family bathroom, in addition to a separate cloakroom.
Surrounded by open countryside, the village of Owslebury enjoys close proximity to picturesque walks along part of the South Downs Way and around National Trust properties. Amenities within the village include a church, part-time Post Office, park, village primary school and cricket ground, as well as a friendly pub. Families will appreciate the village’s location close to Marwell Zoological Park (2 miles) and the cathedral city of Winchester (5 miles) with its extensive selection of shops, restaurants and leisure facilities. The area is well-linked to the M3 and wider motorway network, affording easy access to the M25 and Southampton. Winchester mainline station provides services to London Waterloo with journey times of about one hour.

The garden to the front of the property is laid to lawn with shrubs and hedges providing seclusion from the road.
