An attractive Grade II listed cottage set in a stunning rural location within The South Downs National Park. The Old Cottage would make an ideal home for a family, or anyone who enjoys country living, being surrounded by beautiful Hampshire countryside, and having dog walks from the doorstep. The cottage is surprisingly spacious especially downstairs, with an inglenook fireplace in the sitting room, a bespoke country-style kitchen. From the secluded and private garden, you can enjoy views over the neighbouring fields.
The five bar gate opens to the long driveway offering plenty of parking, and to a timber framed open double garage. A lawned garden surrounds the house on three sides. The cottage is situated up a narrow lane which is well away from the main road.
A covered porch to the side leads to the front door opening to the breakfast/dining room, which has the full benefit of any morning sunshine. There is wooden flooring, useful banquette window seats with built-in storage, and kitchen storage units and worktops, one of which has plumbing for a washing machine (appliance not included). A wide opening leads seamlessly into the country-style kitchen, featuring bespoke wooden storage units and granite worktops, an electric AGA range cooker, space for a tall fridge/freezer, an understairs cupboard, and access to the cellar, which houses the oil-fired boiler. Beyond the kitchen is the family room/study, which has wooden flooring and stairs to the first floor. The spacious sitting room features a beautiful inglenook fireplace, beamed ceilings and the wooden front door. A door leads through to the garden room, which has wooden flooring, a built-in window seat with storage, and a door to the garden.
On the first floor landing, there is a storage cupboard. There are three double bedrooms, featuring exposed beams. The refitted bathroom has a freestanding bath with central taps, a corner shower enclosure, a wc, a sink on a wooden washstand, a heated towel rail and access to the loft.
Outside, the beautiful lawned garden wraps around the house and is surrounded by mature hedging. There is a brick path to the front door, a seating terrace positioned to make the most of the afternoon sunshine, and with views over neighbouring fields. There is an open -fronted timber double garage, with adjoining store room, and a greenhouse.
Woodlands is a quiet rural semi-location, set within The South Down National Park, 4-5 miles from Alresford. The area is surrounded by attractive rolling farmland and downland.
