    About this property

    • Sitting in its pretty riverside gardens, this delightful cob, brick and flint thatched cottage is approached via a foot-bridge over the River Bourne, adjacent to a picturesque wide fording point. The entrance is under a thatched porch into a well-appointed open-plan kitchen/dining/sitting room, with a flagstone floor. The kitchen, to one end, has a range of fitted wooden units, butlers sink and integrated oven, hob, fridge and freezer. The central section of this large room would naturally suit a dining area and the far end, with its large inglenook fireplace, a sitting area. An adjacent study/bedroom three has a walk-in cupboard and offers access to the cloakroom/WC. From the main living area, a bespoke oak split staircase leads alternatively to two double bedrooms, one with an en suite bathroom and one with an en suite shower room.

      Outside
      The picturesque riverside gardens are laid predominantly to lawn, with a stone terrace to the west of the cottage. The property has the benefit of a short stretch of double-bank fishing. To one side of the garden, a traditional hatch house sits above the river, with the water flowing beneath it.
      To the rear of the property is an outside storage shed. The south-facing cottage is approached via a foot-bridge over the River Bourne. Parking is available near the entrance to the bridge.
