Owners Comments

"To live in such a characterful thatched cottage has been a real life enhancing experience, a wonderful chapter in our lives. Everyone who sees Orchard Cottage, always remarks on what a pretty place it is within such a beautiful garden."


Introduction

Exposed original timbers and original feature brick fireplaces fuse with a contemporary elegance and charm within the substantial accommodation and well-proportioned rooms, some with vaulted ceilings. The accommodation is also particularly versatile offering the option to utilise the three bedrooms and three receptions to suit various requirements. Positioned on a tranquil country lane within the peaceful hamlet of Newtown on the fringes of the village of Awbridge, Orchard Cottage is set within beautifully tended well sized gardens, offering a high degree of privacy supplemented by generous parking and a double oak framed car port.


Description

Upon opening the hardwood front door into the dining hall, one is immediately immersed in the evident history of this home with original exposed brickwork, lath and plaster walls and the original brick fireplace with inset wood burning stove. The updating of the property has been beautifully subtle with oak flooring, half panelled walls and traditional latch doors to the principle rooms. The dining hall is an ideal dining venue with ample space for a sizeable table and chairs and positioned adjacent to the kitchen. Beautifully equipped with a range of cottage style base units in contrasting colours beneath granite worktops, the kitchen is delightfully presented, dual in aspect with integrated Neff appliances including ceramic hob with extractor hood, stainless steel double oven and dishwasher. A boiler cupboard houses the Worcester Bosch boiler and Karndean Flooring flows to the lobby area which provides access to the garden with cloak hanging space and useful storage cupboard. The vaulted sitting room is an attractive room centred upon a contemporary electric flame effect fire with picture window overlooking the well-tended gardens. Adjacent is a well sized study with loft storage. From the dining hall there are steps down to the third bedroom. With double doors to the terrace, this room is versatile as a family reception room or bedroom. The master bedroom is impressive, vaulted and dual in aspect, afforded much natural light creating a particularly bright and airy feel. The adjacent family bathroom has a contemporary white suite comprising of low level WC, pedestal wash hand basin, freestanding bath with wall sunken TV, separate shower cubicle with rainfall shower head and steam room facility. There is contemporary lighting and tiled floor. Bedroom two is positioned in the original part of the cottage enjoying exposed timbers and benefiting from an ensuite shower room with shower cubicle, wash hand basin and low level WC.


Outside

The property is screened from the road by mature hedgerow and is approached via a five bar gate to the extensive driveway. This provides parking and turning for several vehicles leading to the double oak frame carport which has loft storage and a secure lockable store to the rear. The front garden hosts a small lawned area with steps to the front door and attractive well stocked borders. Dual side accesses lead to the rear garden approached from one side via a pretty pergola adorned with Wisteria and steps to the large sundeck, which is an ideal entertainment venue adjacent to the attractive well-structured summer house and currently hosts a hot tub. The gardens are beautifully tended, predominantly lawned with broad sculpted well stocked flower borders hosting an array of flowering shrubs and trees and ornamental walled pathways and borders. The gardens are ideally screened with a secluded storage / play area to one corner. To one side of the bungalow is a large shingled and paved area which houses a further summer house, currently used as a gym, a timber bike shed and a utility room with plumbing for a washing machine, sink and storage.


Location

Orchard Cottage is situated in the highly desirable hamlet of Newtown within the parish of Lockerley. Ideally located within walking distance of Awbridge primary school, there are a network of country paths to local villages, public houses and to the market town of Romsey. The popular town of Romsey is situated approximately five miles away offering a host of amenities and varied shopping outlets.


Agents Notes

The property benefits from double glazing, propane gas fired central heating and is served by private drainage via a septic tank. The thatch has been attended to in November 2013 with part of the ridge having been rethatched and the remainder combed throughout. The bulk of the rest of the thatch and ridge was completed approximately seven years ago.
