About this property

TENURE: Freehold

Holly Cottage is a beautiful, deceptively spacious (1,061 sq ft – excluding garage), Grade II listed cottage that was completely rethatched in 2012. It is idyllically located in the heart of this picturesque, most sought after village. A well stocked and profuse cottage garden leads to a detached double garage (offering potential as a home office/studio) with additional parking.

The cottage reputedly dates back to the 15th century in parts and exudes charm throughout, with an abundance of original features including exposed beams and floorboards. The property was re-thatched in 2012. On entering the cottage, the sitting room is to the right, with a beautiful inglenook fireplace with bread oven and contemporary flue-lined woodburner. The dining room leads through to the kitchen as well as a rear vestibule with door to the rear garden and a WC. On the upper floor are there two good-sized bedrooms, including an impressive triple-aspect principal bedroom with an original Elizabethan double Oriel window. Both bedrooms have exposed beams and floorboards and are served by the upstairs family bathroom.

Situation
The picturesque village of Boxford stands astride the River Lambourn. The centre of the village is a Conservation Area with a number of attractive period houses and cottages together with the Parish Church of St Andrew. Boxford also has a public house, a large new village hall with pre-school, tennis courts, playground and sports field for cricket and football. The renowned Watermill theatre is in the neighbouring village of Bagnor. There are also 3 Michelin-starred restaurants just minutes away from Boxford in Bagnor, Stockcross and Speen. Newbury was voted the fourth happiest place to live in the South East of England in Rightmove's December 2019 Happy at Home Index.

More comprehensive amenities of the market town of Newbury can be found approximately 5 miles away and include a train station with an excellent service to London Paddington in approximately 45 minutes. The A34 and M4 provide good access to London, the West Country, Oxford and the south coast. There is an extensive range of schooling available in the local area, both state and private, and the surrounding countryside is renowned for its walking and riding opportunities.

Outside
Approached via a pretty front garden with pathway to the front door, the property is set back from the road at an angle. To the rear is a stunning cottage garden which has a central pathway between the two lawned areas, plus two patios providing a choice of seating areas, one flanked by an established wisteria. The garden is well stocked with a variety of cottage garden plants and shrubs, providing a profuse riot of colour throughout the spring and summer. A gate leads through to a parking area to the rear for 2/3 cars in front of the detached double garage which offers further potential to become a studio / home office, subject to relevant consents.
