    About this property

    • Hurstbourne Cottage is a charming detached property, believed to date from the seventeenth century, with part tile hung elevations, a hipped tiled roof and casement windows. The property was significantly extended in 2006, has been recently redecorated, and offers well-presented accommodation arranged over two floors, with many period details including exposed beams, plasterwork and wooden latched doors.
      The floorplans give an excellent overview of the full extent and layout of the accommodation, with points of note including the sitting room, which has a working inglenook fireplace with bressumer, and the open plan kitchen/dining/family room, which has French doors to the pretty terrace that wraps three elevations of the house.
      The master bedroom suite has a walk-through dressing room and stylish bathroom fittings. Four further bedrooms are served by a bathroom and separate shower room.
      The property sits within a generous plot, extending to just under an acre, and has the benefit of a detached outbuilding comprising a large office (accommodating up to four staff) with kitchen and WC, a gym and a garage with off street parking for a number of vehicles.
      Close to the house are pretty cottage style beds, and a spacious split-level paved terrace with plenty of space for table and chairs.
      The remainder of the garden is mainly laid to lawn, with established shrubs and trees planted.

    I love the layout of this house, it is a wonderful family home - I can imagine Christmas by the open fire and summer barbecues on the terrace.
