Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Kernets is a charming Grade II listed period house in the heart of the village and from its beautifully landscaped garden, an open aspect over fields to the rear. Many period features remain with an inglenook fireplace, exposed beams and timbers as well as echoes of its use as the village store and bakery in the 1900s.

The house is set back from The Street behind a privet hedge and is accessed through a wide entrance to a gravel drive and the linked garage/storage building. The porch protecting the front door is of ancient oak timbers.

On entering the house the hall, which is divided from the dining room by timber uprights, has parquet flooring. The sitting room is a well-proportioned room with a large inglenook fireplace with hooded grate and French windows opening to the garden terrace.

The location of the existing bay opening had originally been the shop window with beyond the ‘Oven’ room (now a Family Room) the former bakery. The kitchen with adjacent breakfast area has plenty of storage and built-in double oven and double stainless steel sinks.

The landing of the house is unusual with exposed beams which are at about ‘eye level’ and very fine. The ledged doors again have a low trajectory but on entering the master bedroom with its vaulted ceiling the view through the casement windows is overlooking the garden and fields. Beyond is the dressing area with fitted cupboards and the en suite bathroom. There are two further bedrooms and a bathroom.

Hook 2 miles (London Waterloo 53 minutes), Basingstoke 8 miles, Reading 13 miles, M3 (Junction 5) 3 miles (All distances are approximate)

Rotherwick is a popular rural village with a Church, active village hall, two public houses and the locally renowned White Water Primary School. Nearby Hook provides facilities for day to day needs including a Tesco supermarket, doctor’s surgery, dentist, veterinary surgery and post office.

A broader range of shopping, recreational and educational facilities can be found in the regional towns of Basingstoke, Reading or Farnham. There is a good range of independent schools in the area including Daneshill, Lord Wandsworth and Sherfield School a few miles away.

There is a choice of highly regarded state (Whitewater Junior School and Robert Mays) and private (Daneshill, St Neot’s, Eagle House) schools within convenient reach.

Rotherwick is well served for the commuter with Junction 5 of the M3 within easy distance providing access to London Airports and the South Coast. Mainline stations to London are at either Hook (Waterloo) or Bramley (Paddington via Reading).

The garden has been cleverly landscaped, beautifully maintained and is a fitting setting for this attractive property. From the drive, the garden to the side and rear is mainly an expanse of lawn broken by specimen trees and shrubs enclosed by mixed hedging. A brick path leads around to the rear paved garden terrace with steps up to the lawn, flanked by herbaceous borders. In one corner is the timber summerhouse and an arbour with seating (subject to negotiation) in the other.

Behind the large garage/store, to maintain the charming garden, is a shed and working area which can also be accessed from a side door in the house.
