Tenure: Freehold

A wonderful detached family home, approached over a gravelled driveway, with ample parking leading to the double garage. At over 4500 sq ft, The Cottage benefits from superb accommodation over two floors, with spacious cellars, and has ability for further expansion if required (stp).
The moment you enter into The Cottage, you immediately understand that this is a beautiful example of a late Victorian family home, full of character features, with exceptional feeling of space. The large welcoming entrance hall radiates light from an impressively large double height window on the wide wooden turned staircase.
There are three main reception rooms on the ground floor: a delightful drawing room of over 35’ long, featuring a large central fireplace in the middle of the room; a good size family room, dining room. The dining room is adjacent to the drawing room and is conveniently located next to the kitchen/breakfast room. The kitchen/breakfast room is beautifully fitted with a range of shaker style white wooden cupboards, a large centre island with space for a range cooker, a separate fitted Aga, ample space for a large farmhouse dining table, and double doors leading out onto the rear terrace. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a boot room with cloakroom, utility room and further ground floor cloakroom.

The first floor is approached via the beautiful staircase to the landing. The master bedroom suite comprises a spacious room with views over the rear garden, adjoining dressing room and bathroom with fitted shower. There is a further bedroom suite, bedroom two, which has an adjoining bathroom. There are two further double bedrooms, and a fifth bedroom, again a double, accessed via a sitting room/bedroom six. A family bathroom completes the first floor accommodation. The basement can be accessed from the ground floor under the staircase.

Immediately adjacent to the rear of the property is a large terrace with brick retaining wall through which steps lead up to the formal gardens. The gardens and grounds extend in all about 0.64 acres being mature with wonderful yew hedging and a wealth of specimen plants and trees providing wonderful protection. The gardens also benefit from a swimming pool which, whilst in need of some updating, would provide a spectacular recreational facility with its adjoining pool buildings, shower and sauna.

The Cottage is pleasantly situated within this quintessentially English village, just South of Winchester, yet close to the heart of the village itself, which benefits from a choice of public houses, a church, village hall, recreation ground, excellent primary school, family butchers and a post office. The village has a wonderful soul, with amateur dramatics, events in the village hall, and of course the much heralded annual Hursley 10k every September. The historic City of Winchester is within a short drive/bus journey and has many attractions and a variety of useful services and amenities to suit all needs. The thriving city centre has an interesting array of specialist shops, award winning restaurants and cultural delights including theatre, cinema and sporting venues.

For those looking to explore Winchester, the City holds a wealth of fascinating architecture, especially in the areas surrounding the Cathedral and College. The property is within the catchment area of Kings’ School, John Keble Primary School, and Peter Symonds College. The surrounding area
has a range of extremely well regarded private schools including Princes Mead, Twyford and Pilgrims Preparatory. with St Swithuns School for Girls, King Edwards, and Winchester College.

For the commuter, the location is superb with either a mainline commute to Waterloo taking approx. 55 minutes or an easy access to the M3, A34 and M27; and Southampton Airport with its network of international flights is easily accessible.
