PROPERTY SUMMARY 'Ash Cottage' and 'Ash Studio' are unique in so many ways, the original cottage, believed to have been two former cottages, provides over 2,170 sq ft of living accommodation with three reception rooms, two having feature 'Inglenook' style fireplaces, a shower room, kitchen / breakfast room, garage and utility room on the ground floor with three bedrooms, a large feature family bathroom and dressing room accessible from the primary staircase (over the main house), and a further sitting room, accessible from a secondary staircase (over the garage). Within the grounds is a further Studio with 1,740 sq ft of living accommodation and incorporating the garaging and comprises; three bedrooms, one with en-suite shower room, a family bathroom, sitting room and 25' kitchen/dining room. The formal manicured grounds extend ¾ of an acre, however the current sellers rent further garden and woodland areas from the Southwick Estate, which we understand is transferrable with the sale. Both properties have immense character with some inglenook style fireplaces, wooden flooring and characteristics more in keeping to the original era as well as 21st Century modernised features including a bespoke fully fitted kitchen, feature family bathroom (with a claw footed bath) and oil fired central heating.
Accessed via a sweeping gravel driveway with extensive car parking and garaging, both 'Ash Cottage' and 'Ash Studio' sit back from the road in the former chalk pit surrounded by mature trees and manicured gardens. Being located equidistant to the historic village of Wickham and the centre of Fareham, these properties are ideally suited for the growing family, those who require staff quarters or have an ageing relative. The location provides easy access to local shopping amenities, bus routes, schooling, recreation grounds and commutable road and rail links. Having been completely refurbished and tastefully decorated, early internal viewing is strongly recommended in order to appreciate both the accommodation and location on offer.
