About this property

  • Garden Cottage is a charming property located in a desirable village location with countryside views. The property has been completely refurbished by the current owners, including a new roof, new designer kitchen and bathrooms, loft conversion to a bespoke new fitted study, rewiring and plumbing. The redevelopment has helped to create a harmonious blend of traditional and contemporary style to the cottage. The overall accommodation is flexible creating engaging family living space. The entrance hall provides a bright arrival into middle of the cottage.
    On the ground floor there is a dining room with reclaimed pine wood floors and feature exposed brick wall and French doors to the garden. The dual aspect living room has a feature fireplace and wood burner and is a bright space enhanced by the neighbouring conservatory. The conservatory enjoys views across the established garden. The kitchen is well appointed and fitted with cabinets in a traditional timber painted style with granite work surfaces and integrated Neff appliances and benefits from a adjoining utility room and separate boot room. In addition there is an office/family room, cloakroom and a ground floor bedroom with en suite bathroom.

There is also a fully-fitted study on the second floor, with a raised working section for enjoyment of the uninterrupted views of Selborne Hanger. There is extensive storage space in the two lofts, both of which are fully boarded.
