About this property

  • The Old Cottage is a wonderful family home enjoying a secluded and private position on the outskirts of the village of Hascombe. Understood to date from 1850, the property was later extended in 2006 and has been extensively rebuilt and renovated to an exceptionally high standard by the current owners. The house has Cat5 cabling throughout with built-in speakers in many of the rooms.

    The property has spacious and well laid out accommodation that offers flexibility in its use and is well suited for family life whilst retaining the character and charm of a period home. There are excellent entertaining spaces both inside the main house and in the glorious gardens.

    On the ground floor, there is an impressive kitchen/dining room which leads into a fabulous conservatory. This space is very much the heart of the home, generous in size and filled with natural light from the bay windows and doors opening on to the gardens. Fitted with bespoke cabinetry, central island, granite worktops and range cooker, the kitchen is beautifully appointed and lends itself to entertaining guests. To the rear is a useful utility room with access outside and a cloakroom. There are two reception rooms both of which enjoy a pleasant aspect of the gardens and original features.

    To the first floor, bedroom accommodation is well planned with a superb principal bedroom with a generous en suite with bath and walk-in shower. Across the hall are three further double bedrooms serviced by the family bathroom.

    Outside, the well-kept gardens are spectacular, extending to just under an acre, with a delightful terrace that wraps around the house. There is a large area of level lawn and well stocked planted borders providing an abundance of colour from spring through to autumn, framed by mature and specimen trees. To the rear of the garden is a potting shed and an area of woodland.

    Accessed via wooden gates, there is plenty of parking on the gravelled driveway as well as a timber framed double garage with a large adjoining workshop and store with a loft room above.

I love the location of The Old Cottage, incredibly quiet and peaceful yet close to lots of amenities.
