Full description

A charming Grade ll listed semi detached thatched cottage dating back to the 17th century with a wonderful garden backing directly onto the village millstream. The accommodation has recently been extended with a rear porch and utility/WC and was completely re-thatched back in 2015. The accommodation offers a wealth of charm and character and includes living room, dining room, kitchen/breakfast room, master bedroom with en-suite bathroom, two further double bedrooms and family bathroom. Garage with driveway parking, stunning garden with summerhouse and further thatched outhouse and backing onto the village millstream.

Location - Ecchinswell is situated approximately six miles to the south of Newbury in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty sitting just on the Hampshire/Berkshire border near Watership Down. The property is also well placed for access to the M3, M4 and A34. Schools in the area include the highly regarded Cheam, Horris Hill and St Gabriel's. The village has a community centre, church and the popular Royal Oak pubic house/restaurant. Nearby Kingsclere has most amenities required for day to day living including a grocery store, family butchers, doctors and dental surgeries.

Ground Floor - The accommodation is accessed via a front door to the rear of the property into a porch which has been newly constructed in the last few years together with a utility/cloakroom. This leads through into a well appointed kitchen/breakfast room with built-in Stanley Range cooker and a range of eye and low-level units with built-in cupboards and an area set aside for a breakfast table which could easily seat six people. Door through to the dining room which has a lovely feeling of character with exposed timber staircase rising to the first floor accommodation and exposed beams to walls and ceiling. A further door leads through into the living room, again offering a great deal of charm and character, with a superb brick built exposed chimney breast with inset beam and wood burner with further exposed beams to walls and ceiling. There is also a door providing access to the rear garden.

First Floor - Three double bedrooms with the master bedroom having built-in storage and an en-suite bathroom. The landing is again full of character with exposed beams throughout. A family bathroom completes the accommodation.

Outside - The cottage is accessed via a driveway leading down the side of the property providing parking for two cars leading to the single garage with metal up-and-over door and power and light connected.

Rear Garden - The rear garden measures approximately 75ft in length and is predominantly laid to lawn with beautiful flower and shrub borders. There are two patio areas, one being adjacent to the property with the other adjacent to the summerhouse which has power and light connected. There is a further thatched outhouse ideal for storage with side gated access to the parking area. A charming feature to the rear of the garden is the delightful mill stream which gives a feeling of peace and tranquility.

N.B. The current vendor has lived at the property for ten years and we are lead to believe that the property has not flooded in that time and there is no knowledge of any other flooding to the property or garden in its history. The property was completely re-thatched back in 2015. There is also current planning for an additional window in the breakfast area of the kitchen to the side aspect.

Services & Council Tax - Mains drainage, water and electricity are connected to the property. Central heating is by way of oil. The property is in Band E. Current charge for 2017-2018 is: £1,836.75. Telephone Basingstoke & Deane Borough Council on: 01256 844844.

Directions - From Newbury proceed southbound following the signs for Basingstoke, on the A339. After approximately a mile, at the first roundabout, turn right signposted Ecchinswell and Bishops Green. After passing through Bishops Green continue through the village, passing the church on the left and the duck pond further along also on the left. Just before the turning signposted Kingsclere No. 1 Riverside Cottages can be found on the left hand side. The first of the two thatched semi-cottages.
