Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Dreaming of the rural lifestyle? Thyme Cottage offers a rare opportunity to purchase a picturesque family home in the tiny hamlet of Idstone, situated at the foot of one of Britain's oldest paths - The Ridgeway. For countryside lovers, horse riders, dog walkers and nature enthusiasts, this pretty cottage is a dream, yet you are still only a few miles from main motorway connections and other transport links, as well as towns with all the amenities they offer.

The original property comprised a semi-detached chalkstone cottage which has now been thoughtfully extended by the present owners. A first floor balcony accessed from the principal bedroom (and another) is a charming feature from which to enjoy a morning cup of tea or mug of freshly brewed coffee, or an evening nightcap whilst enjoying views over the village to the Ridgeway.

The peaceful sitting room boasts a fireplace with wood burning stove, with beams extending into the separate dining room, perfect for entertaining. A family farmhouse-style kitchen with granite worktops and gas fired AGA lies open plan to a garden room providing a sunny and relaxing, sociable space. Completing this floor is a useful utility/boiler room and cloakroom.

Upstairs, the main bedroom includes an en suite bathroom with bath, whilst the guest bedroom includes a spacious shower. A further double bedroom, a single bedroom and a family shower room complete the first floor.

The gated driveway provides off road parking for up to six vehicles. The gardens lie to the front on the south side of the cottage and are very private. Laid to lawn with mature shrubs, trees and hedging, there is a sunny patio, two garden sheds and a summer house.

To the side of the kitchen is a very useful covered space providing additional storage, room to dry laundry on a damp day and a perfect space to barbecue. A pedestrian gate gives access to a narrow strip of land to the rear for maintenance and storage.

This property is not thought to be listed. It has oil fired heating (bottled gas for the Aga) with mains water, electricity and drainage.
