Superb thatched cottage in Hampshire Village - POA

This sale presents an enviable opportunity to acquire a delightful period detached cottage with origins dating back, the vendor believes, to circa 1800.  The cottage is surprisingly light and airy for a building of this type.  The property is situated on a lovely plot with far reaching views across adjoining fields and a sympathetic barn style out building which contains a hot tub.  The property offers many character features including exposed beams and open fireplaces but would benefit from a program of modernisation.

On the ground floor a large entrance hall provides access to all ground floor rooms and has Parquet flooring and a selection of exposed beams.  The lounge is situated to the rear of the property and has a brick built fireplace, Parquet flooring, exposed beams, an under stairs storage cupboard and a glazed door opening to the rear garden. The dining room is located at the front of the property and features a fabulous original fireplace, exposed beams and Parquet flooring.  The adjoining study also benefits from Parquet flooring and exposed beams.  The bathroom is fitted with a suite comprising a panel enclosed bath with mixer tap and hand shower attachment, pedestal wash hand basin and low level w.c.  The generous kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with a range of floor and wall mounted units, work surfaces with a butler sink, built in oven and four ring hob with extractor over, washing machine, dishwasher and fridge freezer.  There is also a door leading through to a pantry/store room.

The first floor landing also has exposed beams and doors to all first floor rooms.  The first and second bedrooms benefit from built in wardrobes and the first bedroom also has three generous eaves storage cupboards.  Bedroom three offers a range of exposed beams and brickwork, a cupboard housing the hot water tank with slatted shelving above and windows to the front and rear.  The bathroom comprises a full length bath, shower cubicle, wash hand basin, low level w.c. and hatch to the loft space. 

Outside to the side of the property there is off road parking.  Immediately to the rear of the house is a small paved patio area and a barn style outbuilding with a hot tub and sliding patio doors which provide panoramic views over the large rear garden which is mainly laid to lawn and leads down to the fields and river beyond.  There is a shed immediately adjoining the barn style building and also substantial outbuilding further down the garden with decked area in front of it.
