A lovely three bedroom country cottage with views over the water meadows. The cottage has been recently refurbished throughout, yet still keeping the period features. The property is entered via a vestibule area with ground floor w/c. The spacious L shaped sitting room, situated to the front of the property, centres on an exposed brick chimney breast with wood burning stove. Ceiling and cross timbers prevail, as they do throughout the house and windows to both the front and side flood this generous room with light. To the rear of the cottage is a well equipped contemporary kitchen. The tiling continues in the vaulted dining room, a later addition that, along with the modern touches, sits well against the character of the original house. An original turning staircase leads to the first floor where there are two bedrooms including the main bedroom which is almost 19ft and features fabulous panelled walls, a feature fireplace and views over the water meadows. On the second floor there is a third attic bedroom and a bathroom with bath and separate shower.
To the rear of the property is the garden mainly laid to lawn, with a terrace ideal for outdoor entertaining. Offered to the market unfurnished and available now.
Set in the Meon Valley and South Downs National Park, the cottage has a stunning position with views over the water meadows to the front and a wealth of footpaths and bridleways on the doorstep. The village has a strong community spirit, an excellent pub, church and village store at Meonstoke. Petersfield and Winchester (11 & 12 miles respectively) offer comprehensive shopping, recreational facilities and mainline rail links to London Waterloo (about 1 hour) whilst the A272 is also readily accessible linking to the A3 and M3. There is a state primary school at Meonstoke, a secondary school at Swanmore, both of which are very well regarded and a number of excellent private schools in the area.
