With origins back to 1825, this charming three bedroom cottage has been sympathetically extended and skilfully fuses character features with contemporary design. Idyllically set close to the clear waters of the River Whitewater and Odiham Castle, the cottage would make a wonderful family home as well as a rural retreat.
The cottage is set in the small village of North Warnborough with the neighbouring villages of Odiham, Hook and Winchfield close by. There are good transport links with the M3 just a stone’s throw away and direct links to London Waterloo and Southampton from Hook’s rail station.
Decorated with a neutral contemporary scheme throughout, this light and airy home uses meticulous design to remain sympathetic to the true character of the property. The interior is also particularly spacious with two large reception rooms and a study. Exposed beams and brickwork within the living room combine to create a striking and unique room that also has the wonderful feature of an open fireplace. The dining room is light and chic and features wood flooring and French doors to the rear garden. From here there is also access to the study that in turn leads through to a useful store.
Sleek glossy cabinets, granite worktops and a stunning glass splashback showcase the property’s contemporary edge within the stylish kitchen, which seamlessly conceals integrated appliances including a washing machine, a fridge and a dishwasher.
The downstairs cloakroom continues the contemporary design featuring an enclosed shower with monsoon shower head.
Soft carpeting and warming neutral décor continues throughout the three generous bedrooms on the first floor. The light and airy master bedroom enjoys a pleasant dual aspect, whilst also featuring fitted wardrobes. Stylish fixtures and fittings within the spacious family bathroom create a luxurious look that is exemplified by the ‘Victorian’ style freestanding claw foot bath.
A shingled drive provides a parking area for the home, with a gated picket fence leading to a courtyard which forms the front garden. The private rear garden is enclosed by wood panel fencing, with a large expanse of lawn as an area of patio adjoins the property.
