Property Description

Full description

An individual four bedroom detached character residence offering a delightful arrangement of beautifully styled and presented family accommodation, further enhanced by the impressive landscaped cottage style garden located on the outskirts of Wickham.

The property is located on the outskirts of the historic Georgian market town of Wickham which boasts a range of local amenities including independent shops, restaurants, wine bars and public houses amongst others. The village is steeped in history and is enviably situated within the attractive Meon Valley countryside yet is still within easy reach of the commercial centres of Winchester, Southampton and Portsmouth. There are excellent sporting facilities within the area including golf, walking, and riding, fishing on the Itchen and Test and sailing on the Solent. Mainline rail links to London can be found at Fareham or Southampton Eastleigh Parkway whilst the A3(M) and M27 road networks are also within close proximity. For internal and international flights Southampton International Airport is about 11 miles away. Schooling wise, the property falls within the catchment area for Wickham Primary as well as Swanmore College of Technology.   

Dating back to the 1860’s, the property came into its existence when local workers were asked to vacate their homes on the nearby Rookesbury Estate. In exchange for this upheaval the workers were given bricks and this individual four bedroom detached character residence was built. It now provides a delightful arrangement of beautifully styled and presented family accommodation, further enhanced by the impressive landscaped cottage style garden.   

Internally the cottage is laid out as one would expect for a property of this age. A wealth of character features remain throughout and there is an excellent arrangement of accommodation with particular emphasis on extensive ground floor living space. The country style galley kitchen comes complete with not only cream wall and floor units but also the original red brick floor and bread oven. Two equally proportioned reception rooms both with feature fire places offer flexible living space and there is also a well-placed dining room, utility and cloakroom.  
Upstairs the charm continues. Four well-proportioned bedrooms can be found all being serviced by the well fitted family bathroom with all rooms enjoy delightful views, particularly those overlooking the gardens to the rear.    

Externally the prettily landscaped gardens are mainly laid to lawn, interspersed with a variety of mature trees and shrubs creating all year round interest and colour. To the rear of the plot there is a well establish vegetable garden and useful shed and closer to the house is an attractive terrace area. The perfect place to sit back and enjoy this charming setting. To the front the property is set well back from the road and ample off road parking can be found on the drive to the side of the cottage. There is also a useful single garage.
