Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Tudor Barn was originally constructed in 1647 and although converted and extended some time ago, the present owners have enhanced the accommodation to provide what is now a beautiful period cottage. We strongly recommend viewing this home to appreciate both its charming interior and rural aspect.

The cottage is conveniently situated on the fringes of Fair Oak and is only footsteps away from excellent footpaths and bridleways which explore the immediate countryside and woodland. Fair Oak offers reputable schooling, local shops and pubs with East Horton Golf Course and Marwell Zoo close by. There are good road links to Winchester, Southampton and Eastleigh and especially Hedge End where Superstores can be found such as Sainsbury's, M&S, Next, Curry's and B&Q.

The accommodation briefly comprises of two reception rooms, a kitchen/breakfast room and wet room downstairs and three bedrooms and a family bathroom upstairs. Additionally, outside there is a large, single story barn. This property benefits from lapsed planning permission to demolish the existing single story barn and replace it with a two storied Grand Design style extension to the main cottage, (Planning ref F/1067257). 

INSIDE The cottage begins with a wooden front door to the porch and main door to the light and airy dining room and separate sitting room. The sitting room features a fitted bookcase and an open fireplace with lead light window to the front. The dining room, also with exposed wooden beams has a lead light window to the front, entrance to the inner hall area and turning stairs leading to the first floor. The inner hallway provides access to a contemporary style three piece wet room with under floor heating and a spacious kitchen/breakfast room with window and door providing access to the rear garden. There is a matching range of fitted cream wall and base units with drawers, space for an electric AGA cooker, plumbing and space for a dishwasher and washing machine and work surfaces.

There is a well-proportioned first floor landing providing access to all upstairs accommodation including a master bedroom with a fitted double wardrobe and views over the garden and fields beyond. Bedrooms two and three both have windows facing the front, whilst the three piece family bathroom has been refitted in a contemporary style benefitting from underfloor heating.
 

DETACHED BARN The barn can be accessed from the double doors via the driveway and the side passage. This is a large flexible space, fitted with a wood burning stove and windows to the side and rear. The room is currently set up as a family/games/office room but could easily be used as a work space or annex as it stands or used to extend the cottage by reinstating the lapsed planning permission. 

OUTSIDE The property can be approached via a block driveway with ample space for parking several vehicles. From here, a side passage way leads to the rear walled garden which backs onto adjoining fields. The garden is mainly laid to lawn with planted borders, an attractive potting shed and a patio area.
