Owners Comments

"Doctors Hill is without doubt one of the most convenient locations within the Test Valley to combine tranquil country living with modern life and this is detailed under the 'Location' heading."


Introduction

Commanding a prominent position overlooking its stunningly beautiful surroundings extending to 3.2 acres, Yew Tree Cottage enjoys its own very private hidden valley of 2.2 acres separating it from its formal one acre garden. Situated in one of the finest and most exclusive locations within the Test Valley, with easy access to so many amenities, Doctors Hill has recently become a very popular destination for buyers wanting to extend or totally redevelop and there are now some very impressive individual properties situated upon this quiet tranquil country lane. Yew Tree Cottage boasts one of the widest plots along Doctors Hill making it a truly magnificent spot and subject to planning permission offers the opportunity, if desired, to create an exquisite and substantial family home.

Providing deceptively spacious accommodation Yew Tree Cottage dates back 300 years and was extended some forty years ago to form a family home with 5 bedrooms and three reception rooms. The original part of the house boasts exposed old ships timbers some of which in recent years were found to contain lead musket shot. Eager to maintain the property in its country style there have been many sympathetic improvements made by our client over the years whilst retaining many of the period features associated with its era.


Description

The property has versatile accommodation. The front door leads into a dual aspect sitting room with a large original inglenook fireplace containing a woodburner. An inner lobby leads to the drawing room with stunning views across the garden and valley to the ancient woodland beyond. There is another inglenook fireplace in this room hosting a further woodburner. The dining room is delightful and ideal for entertaining, situated in the old part of the property. The kitchen has solid French Oak cupboard doors and leads into a breakfast room with a rear exit approached via french doors through a sizeable utility and boot room.

The original winding staircase leads to a dual aspect master bedroom suite with a shower room and a large walk in wardrobe. The fourth bedroom has been a study for many years and this together with the fifth bedroom (which can also be used as a dressing room.) could very easily be converted into one room. The study contains a very deep cupboard. There is a family bathroom with two further well proportioned bedrooms.


Outside

The property rests upon a magnificent plot of approximately one acre of established gardens in addition to the enchanting valley of 2.2 acres being an enclosed area with daffodils and bluebells drifting down from the ancient woodland in Spring. In recent years it has become a haven for wildlife. As it is well drained it was formerly used for grazing livestock and could be used for this purpose again. It is a wonderful adventure playground for children. The property is approached via a five bar gate and gravel driveway with parking for several vehicles. The surrounding gardens are predominantly lawned, studded with mature fir and specimen trees and shrubs. There are interspersed flower borders and more formal gardens at the rear with a delightful sun terrace and patio adjacent to the house. An enclosed courtyard with a paved terrace fronting the large barn provides an ideal venue for al fresco dining or entertaining. The barn provides additional workspace and storage and is situated alongside the pretty orchard with a variety of fruit trees where underneath many snowdrops bloom in the New Year.


Agents Notes

The property is served by oil fired central heating, private drainage and is Band G rated for council tax purposes.
