An architect designed family home set in fabulous landscaped grounds of approximately 0.6 acre


Brook cottage enjoys a rural position within a mile of the historic market town of Bishops Waltham and its comprehensive facilities including local shops, restaurants and banks. The Cathedral City of Winchester lies approximately 12 miles to the north-west.
Southampton, Portsmouth and the M27 are all within easy access, as are the mainline railway stations at Hedge End and Botley, and Southampton Parkway Station, connecting to London Waterloo (about 70 minutes) is about 10 miles. The leisure facilities of the Meon Valley are all within a short drive.


Brook Cottage is an interesting family home designed by the local Winchester architect Huw Thomas. The property has a fabulous reception hall with cathedral-like ceilings up to the first floor. The sweeping staircase is a real feature and sets the tone for this
unique family property. At ground floor level is a kitchen/breakfast room with range of floor and wall mounted units including cupboard and drawer sections with work surfaces over. Doors from this room lead out onto the rear terrace, which provides a fabulous space for outdoor entertaining. There are doors also from the kitchen to the dining room, making it a practical living space and again ideal for entertaining. There
are two bedrooms at ground floor level, one of which is the master bedroom with en suite bathroom and views over the pond area. The second bedroom at ground floor level also has its own shower room. At first floor level there is a magnificent living room which provides a fabulous space with its vaulted ceiling and exposed timber, corner log burner and doors onto a balcony
with views over the garden. Off this fantastic room is a study providing good space for working from home and off the first floor corridor are two bedrooms and a family bathroom. The overall feeling of this house is one of great individual design and plenty of light and bright rooms.

At the front of the property is a large driveway which provides parking for numerous vehicles and access to the double garage. The principal gardens lie towards the rear of the property and have been exquisitely presented with some attractive lawned sections interspersed by some well thought through planting with numerous borders full of mature plants and shrubs. This fabulous garden provides a super space for recreation and with its rear terrace, great space for entertaining.

Acreage: 0.66 Acres


From Winchester proceed south on the B3335 passing through the villages of Twyford and Colden Common. At Fishers Pond turn left onto the B2170 towards Bishops Waltham and follow it all the way to the roundabout, taking the 2nd exit (straight across). At the next roundabout, take the third exit onto the Botley Road (B3035) and after about 1 mile, take the turning right and the entrance to the driveway will be found on the left-hand side.
