Full description

Homes are proud to present this exquisite cottage of considerable charm and character situated on a no through road in the pretty Hampshire village of Chawton. Reputedly dating from the 18th century, this former post office cottage is set back behind a walled cottage garden and has accommodation within comprising three receptions rooms, two stunning double bedrooms as well as a single bedroom/study, a beautiful country kitchen, a separate utility room and both ground and first floor bath/shower rooms. There are beautiful gardens, a garage and a substantial outbuilding.

You are welcomed in to the property through a stable door in to the reception hall which in turn leads to a cosy snug. From here, access is provided in to all of the ground floor rooms which include a charming sitting room which has authentic beamed walls and ceilings as well as a spectacular inglenook fireplace featuring a recently added wood burning stove within. The recently enhanced kitchen has a country theme and has a range of base and wall cupboards, a Smeg Range cooker with seven burners including a Wok burner. The room also enjoys a rear aspect. The dining room has a lovely bay window and leads to the utility room. There is also a shower situated on this level.

You approach the first floor via an impressive wrought iron turning staircase. There are two incredible double bedrooms, as well as a single bedroom which could also be used as a study; there is also a family bathroom. The master bedroom enjoys a twin aspect and a small range of wardrobes built in to the eves. The guest room has a stunning beamed, vaulted ceiling as well as a walk in wardrobe.

It is important to mention that like a great deal of properties in this locality, the main garden is detached and does not directly adjoin the rear boundary of the property. It can be approached by a pathway and passing over the adjoining neighbours garden. However, once through the garden gate you are given a real treat. You will find a sea of summer colour on offer from a real mixture of plants and shrubs in deep borders and a large area of level, well tendered lawns which are surrounded by larger shrubs and trees.

There is also a fantastic detached home office building.
This would make an ideal setting for anyone who works from home or needs that extra space away from the main house. This building is made up of two rooms, one of which could be used as an occasional bedroom with en-suite facilities. Both rooms benefit from a supply of light and power. A detached garage is also included with the property and is located a short distance away from the cottage on Winchester Road. There is an electric up and over door and a water supply.
