A rare opportunity to purchase a delightful pair of semi-detached cottages of great character and history standing close to the heart of the village with a southerly facing rear garden. The cottages have been sympathetically updated and extended over recent years and would provide an ideal option for anyone that wished to live close to family and / or friends but not within the same property. The properties are available for sale as a whole or individually. The cottages retain all of the inherent character of the original properties with fireplaces, exposed beams and exposed brick walling. Each cottage has a lovely and very welcoming entrance hall / living room extending into a sitting room. Both rooms have fireplaces with wood burning stoves and combine to create very flexible and spacious living spaces. The careful extensions to the rear of each cottage have created large kitchen/dining rooms with underfloor heating and French doors opening out to the rear gardens. Each kitchen is fitted with a bespoke range of cabinets together with an electric Aga in No.1 and a range in No.2 together with an integrated dishwasher and wine refrigerator. There are four bedrooms to each cottage with a superb bathroom with a traditional suite including a roll top bath to No.1 and a stylish shower room to No. 2.
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 cottages have the most attractive and well-tended landscaped gardens providing a variety of areas of interest and a principally southerly aspect. The rear gardens are set around areas of lawn with well stocked flower borders, a variety of young and mature shrubs and vegetable garden. A paved terrace adjoins the kitchen/dining room to each cottage and provides an ideal outside seating area. Steps lead from here to further areas of paved terrace providing a perfect setting for outdoor entertaining. Immediately to the rear, there are a pair of useful storage cupboards to both cottages. To the rear of the garden, there is a timber framed greenhouse, garden shed and chicken run with two timber stores to either end.
