An enchanting cottage, outstanding family accommodation, glorious cottage gardens, with views towards Tichborne Park.
The very special village of Tichborne is in a conservation area in the South Downs National Park. It has a public house (The Tichborne Arms) and a Saxon church. It is surrounded by farmland but is not remote being only two miles to the south of the charming Georgian town of Alresford which caters for most everyday needs. Within easy driving distance are the larger centres of Winchester, Alton and Basingstoke, all having mainline stations to London Waterloo. There is access on to the M3 at Winchester and Basingstoke or the A31 continues into the A3 at Guildford and on to the M25 orbital motorway, the airports and London.
The cottage is a modern thatched cottage inspired by the vernacular style of Tichborne and its glorious parklike grounds and estate. The house was built in 1991 to an exacting style seamlessly blending the appeal of a thatched cottage with the practicalities of a modern house. As such there are light and bright rooms with south aspect at the rear. The approach to the cottage is through a short path through charming cottage gardens leading through to the hall from where the main rooms radiate. There are no beams and good ceiling heights. The whole creates a charming yet practical character house with sitting room featuring an open fireplace, leading through double doors to the conservatory which has blinds and a radiator to extend the use throughout the season. With the interconnecting doors to the sitting room this can create a large scale entertaining area and in turn doors lead on to the garden terrace which enhance large scale entertaining and alfresco living.
The kitchen which was refitted approximately 6 years ago has an extensive range of built in cupboards with space saving designs, long work surfaces, induction hob, electric oven and grill, water softener. The central heating boiler was re-positioned and renewed, positioned outside for easy maintenance. The kitchen/dining room has an attractive outlook across the gardens to the rear which are south facing and there is a side door to the garden path. In addition there is a spacious dining room overlooking the gardens at the front and the separate study and cloakroom. On the first floor there are three bedrooms. The principal bedroom has views towards Tichborne Park at the rear and has an en suite shower room. There are two further bedrooms and a recently refitted bathroom with shower over, all creating a practical yet stylish home. A year ago the property was rethatched at the rear with Norfolk Reed, a traditional material renowned for its logical merits including keeping the house cool in the summer and warm in the winter, and is a renewable resource.
Fronting on to the lane there is an enclosed cottage garden featuring a traditional planting style with roses, and abundantly stocked borders billowing over the path. This path leads around to the rear where the majority of the garden which is surprisingly large and is not necessarily apparent from the outside. There is an enclosed entertaining terrace which connects with the conservatory, beyond which may be found gently rolling lawns edged by abundantly stocked herb and flower borders, featuring various roses all enclosed within hedges which leads through to the rear where there is a screened oil tank and large garden shed. There is a grass walk way which leads to the garage at the rear with a separate driveway from the lane and is in a block of three. An up and over door provides access to a single garage with storage over and there is an additional hard standing area in front.
