HOME OF DISTINCTION - BEAUTIFUL GRADE II LISTED COTTAGE situated in the popular hamlet of Burgate, just moments away from the New Forest. Detached garage and annexe, beautiful gardens and a wealth of charm and character.

The Property

'Quatrefoil' is a detached thatched cottage believed to date back to the 17th Century and lies within the popular hamlet of Burgate on the western fringe of the New Forest National Park on the outskirts of Fordingbridge. The property offers a wealth of period features including original inglenook fireplace, exposed beams and casement windows.

Upon entering the property you are instantly greeted by the warmth and character that this home exudes throughout. The entrance hall features exposed wood flooring and leads into a spacious dual aspect sitting room which overlooks the front and rear of the property and provides access to the garden. The central room to the house is the sitting room which features a beautiful inglenook fireplace with bressummer beam, cast iron smoke canopy and a raised hearth. The kitchen sits on the rear elevation and features character wall and ceiling beams, fitted cupboards and tiled work surfaces, plus a utility room as well as an attractive dining room with feature fireplace and tiled floor; this room also features one of the two staircases which provides access to the first floor accommodation. The main bathroom is on the ground floor and is accessed from the entrance hall and features a fitted bath with electric shower, wash basin and WC. Moving upstairs, the character features continue as you enter the study/bedroom 4 with exposed wood flooring and ceiling beams. All of the bedrooms are spacious whilst the master bedroom features an en-suite bathroom with fitted airing cupboard. Bedroom 2 is of a particularly good size and has a large fitted wardrobe. Bedroom 3 also features a fitted wardrobe and it is worth noting that there is some restricted head room in this particular room.


A particular feature of the property is the detached annexe, which incorporates the garage with power and lighting at the front, whilst a personal door on the side leads into a large reception room and off of that, a smaller room which would be ideal as a WC. A timber staircase from the reception room leads up into a very spacious bedroom/office space with windows to each gable end.

The outside space is extremely pleasant with a large lawned area, a number of Cox's apple trees as well as various other fruit trees and shrubs, a vegetable patch, a feature pond and a timber built summer house. An ornate pear tree can be found growing on the side elevation of the property and has been a particular favourite of the current owner for many years. Off road parking is in abundance and the property is enclosed by a timber gate on the washed gravel driveway. This property will certainly capture your imagination and is sure to be of interest to those that appreciate the charm and character of an older style residence.
