Owners Comments

"I was raised in Brook Avenue and returned within a year of leaving, once married, when we purchased September Cottage- at the time in a derelict state with the pump in the kitchen that brought water up from the well in the garden! All four of our children have been raised here and despite looking at a few houses over the years they were never enough to draw us away from the peace, tranquility and seclusion of September Cottage. My Mother still lives in the Avenue and when we moved we did so just down the road!"

"Brook Avenue offers privacy with the most wonderful walks to the woods or foreshore from your doorstep. It is safe for families and those that seek privacy, love the water and walking."


Introduction

September Cottage has origins dating back to 1870 but has been significantly and sympathetically extended by our clients to create this stunning individual family home approaching 6000 square feet.
Surrounded by acres of fields with coast and countryside conservation, the property offers many exquisite features including a stunning kitchen living room, bespoke with a range of American walnut units and an extensive indoor leisure complex comprising swimming pool, sauna, gym and treatment areas.
The generous accommodation features a host of reception areas providing much versatility and wonderful social flow, whilst six first floor bedrooms comfortably accommodates the largest of families. The recent additions to the property have been styled to fuse the period charm with a modern elegance, typified by the impressive oak and glazed doors, reclaimed from Wimbledon Centre Court buildings, within the contemporary décor of the substantial sitting room.
September Cottage's seclusion is superb, with no near neighbours yet just a short stroll to the delightful River Hamble and Warsash's sophisticated amenities, a popular retreat for sailing enthusiasts.
