PROPERTY SUMMARY 'Dovetail Cottage' is believed to date back to circa 1750 and over the last few decades has been extended substantially, providing 2039 sq ft of living space (inc. outbuildings) arranged over two floors. The symmetrical layout with central doorway leads to the original cottage with exposed beams, wooden flooring and feature open fire & fire surrounds, stepping back from this area leads to a large 'L' shaped kitchen, shower room and utility room with twin doors leading to a further extension and a 19' sitting room. On the first floor are four bedrooms, the master with an en-suite shower room and a refitted bathroom. The primary rooms have wooden floors, some exposed brick work and the latch key wooden doors, there is central heating throughout and the drawing room has the added attraction of an open fire with the sitting room having a wood burning stove in one corner. Stepping out to the rear garden there is a lovely feeling of space with brick and flint walls on two aspects and backing onto hillside and fields beyond, the whole plot extends 0.20 of an acre. Hambledon village has a very strong village community with two shops, a public house and a well used community centre which also serves as a doctors surgery, unusually there is also the 'Hambledonian' which is a bi-monthly magazine updating everybody in the village about on-going events and services. The village is part of the South Downs National Park Conservation Area and has a strong historical background, the village nestles along a valley and ancient riverbed running from the South Downs in East Hampshire and is recorded as being the 'Cradle of Cricket' and the rebirth place of the English commercial wine production. For 3,000 years there has been a settlement in Hambledon and the human footprint of history can still be discerned, a Roman villa, a Saxon church and significant Norman and Medieval building, this historic village is set in typical southern English countryside surrounded by sweeping farmland and splendid woods. 'Dovetail Cottage' offers ample living space yet has the attraction of cosy, cottage style property set under a clay peg tiled roof, canopy porch and blue painted brickwork, early internal viewing of this interesting family home is strongly recommended in order to appreciate both the accommodation and location on offer.
