Full description

Homes are delighted to offer to the market this wonderfully charming, double bay fronted 17th Century cottage in the historic and picturesque village of Chawton. Having been the subject of extensive and sympathetic restoration and improvement by the present owners, this stunning cottage is presented in the most pristine order.

Characteristics include exposed timbers and beamed ceilings to the combined sitting/dining room, a beautiful pair of oriel bow windows with comfy seating areas, various latch doors, internal exposed flint and brickwork, a stand out inglenook fireplace with feature wood burning stove within.

One enters the cottage through the original solid door with optical window and are welcomed into the tastefully and beautifully appointed sitting and dining areas. Both rooms have the oriel bay windows and exposed walls and timbers. The sitting area features the inglenook fire with woodburning stove, whilst the dining room can house a large table and has bespoke, hand crafted store cupboards and shelving. Also on the ground floor is the well specified kitchen, finished in a light oak theme with black granite worktops, flagstone floor and several integrated appliances. A pretty stable door leads to the wonderful garden. An inner lobby area takes you to the ground floor bathroom.

The first floor has two generous double bedrooms, both with low level windows which enjoy a pleasant street scene aspect. The current master bedroom has a tremendous range of bespoke fitted units comprising wardrobes and exceptionally useful cupboards with shelving. Across the hallway is the slightly larger of the two bedrooms, also with a degree of storage as well as a corner desk area.

The delightful garden can be reached through the stable door or through a separate side pathway. You are initially greeted by an area of flagstone paving, screened with wisteria and vines, providing the perfect balance of sun and shade in the summer months. You continue along a pathway to the beautiful cottage garden which is fully enclosed with a shapely lawn and well stocked flower borders around the outside. There is also a summer house with electricity supply and both hot and cold outside taps.

This outstanding cottage really must be seen to be fully appreciated. Although bijou in size, it more than makes up in style, charm, character and outstanding location.

Set within a Conservation Area and on a part of the old Winchester Road which is now a cul-de-sac, the property is only 1.1 miles walking distance from Alton High Street. The village of Chawton is renowned for its past with the early 19th century writer, Jane Austen's home being situated in the village. Chawton has St Nicholas church, a primary school, the Grey Friar Inn, tea rooms, a village hall and a cricket pitch.
