About this property

  • Formerly the village Carpenter's cottage, Blackbrook Cottage is a charming, characterful and extremely well-presented cottage located on Hatchett Green on the northern perimeter of the National Park.

    The kitchen/Breakfast room centres upon a cream Aga within the original inglenook fireplace. High quality cabinets from Harvey Jones of Winchester incorporate a magnificent larder cupboard and central island unit with contrasting wooden and granite work surfaces. Top of the range appliances include a Miele rotisserie oven and dishwasher, Fisher & Paykel fridge freezer and Baumatic ceramic hob. Beyond the kitchen is a useful utility room and there is also a cloakroom.

    The sitting room features an impressive inglenook fireplace with inset wood burning stove coupled with a built in book shelves and display case.

    French doors open into a large and versatile conservatory, an ideal venue for dining and entertaining overlooking the cottage gardens. Completing the ground floor accommodation is cosy snug that can also double as a ground floor bedroom.

    On the first floor, the large landing leads to a bright and airy double-aspect master bedroom which benefits from built in wardrobes and views to the front and rear. The second bedroom is also a comfortable double with built in wardrobes and views over the rear garden; there are two well-equipped bathrooms, one for each bedroom.

    Outside
    The property is approached via a driveway for four cars leading to the single garage. A wooden pedestrian gate leads to the front door and side access to the rear garden. The south facing gardens are generous in size backing onto beautiful paddocks. Meticulously
    maintained, the garden is predominantly laid to lawn and well stocked with mature shrubs. There is also a beautiful summer house to enjoy.
