Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Squirrel Cottage is understood to date back
to the mid-18th Century and is Grade II Listed
as being of Special Architectural and Historic
Interest. Constructed with rendered and colourwashed elevations, beneath a thatched roof
which was re-thatched in 2010, it has been well
maintained, both internally and externally. In
2014 a sympathetic extension was added to the
rear, providing a dining room on the ground
floor with a spiral staircase up to a fourth
bedroom with adjoining shower room.

The cottage has retained many inherent features
of its original period, including numerous
exposed beams. There is a well-proportioned
sitting room with a wood burning stove, well
fitted kitchen/breakfast room with oak units
and an electric 4-oven Aga. On the first floor
there are three bedrooms, including two double
bedrooms which have been well fitted with wardrobes and drawers.

The cottage lies on the outskirts of the most
attractive and very popular village of St Mary
Bourne, within the heart of the Bourne Valley,
and the cottage forms part of the community of
Gangbridge Lane which lies on the banks of the
Bourne, a very popular part of the village.

Local amenities include a village shop/Post
Office, primary school, Parish Church of St Peter,
village hall, doctors' surgery, recreation ground
and three public houses. The larger local
centres of Whitchurch (with its mainline railway
station on the London Waterloo line) and the
nearby market towns of Andover and Newbury,
together with the Cathedral City of Winchester
offer more extensive amenities including leisure
and sport.

The A303 and A34 are also within easy reach,
providing excellent road communications to
all parts of the country, including the M3 and
M4 Motorways. The surrounding countryside is
renowned for its natural beauty, in which there
are some lovely walks and rides, together with
first class chalk stream fishing in the Rivers
Test and Itchen, horse racing at Salisbury and
Newbury and a number of very popular golf
clubs.

Within the village is St Mary Bourne Primary
School with Test Bourne Community School in
Whitchurch and the first class Peter Symonds
Sixth Form College in Winchester. Preparatory
schools include Farleigh, Rookwood and
Horris Hill leading onto Godolphin in Salisbury,
Winchester College, St Swithun's at Winchester
and Marlborough College.

The cottage garden is another delightful feature,
having been professionally laid out and planted
providing a most attractive setting. There is an
"in and out" gravel drive with a mature beech
hedge along the frontage to the lane, giving
excellent seclusion and privacy. The front
garden is laid to lawn with sitting-out areas, a
Jacuzzi hot tub and well stocked flower and
shrub beds. The rear garden is accessed either
side of the cottage, containing further paved
sitting-out areas with gravel surrounds, well
stocked flower and shrub beds and borders,
from which there is a delightful outlook over the
countryside to the rear.

There is a large detached garage of timber
frame construction with weatherboard
elevations, beneath a slate roof, with double
doors and electricity connected. To the rear,
and approached through the garage, and with
its own separate entrance is a studio currently
used as an office, being well fitted with desk
and drawer units and also ideally suited as a
self-contained annexe.

There is a fenced-off area with kennel, store and
greenhouse.
