Hamptons International are delighted to be marketing this stunning Grade II listed cottage situated in the heart of this popular Hampshire village.

The stunning drawing room features a brick built open fireplace and a double aspect, with windows overlooking the attractive front and rear gardens. The kitchen is fitted with a range of painted units, built-in appliances, including a dishwasher, and a range-style cooker together with a mellow exposed brick wall. For more formal entertainment there is also a dining room, which is ideally positioned adjoining the kitchen. For the home worker there is a separate study, plus a guest bedroom and shower room which also serves two of the upstairs bedrooms, creating a versatile arrangement. The first floor is of equal merit, which is approached by two separate staircases. There are an additional four bedrooms, all of extremely generous proportions, one of which is currently used as a secondary sitting room. There is also a family bathroom adjacent to the main bedroom.
