With winter approaching thoughts often wander to those of cosy up around an open fire, or hang your stockings up on Christmas eve. At Mackenzie Smith we have several beautiful properties featuring open fireplaces to choose from with prices for all budgets ranging from £300,000 – £1,000,000.
The first of which are two charming Victorian cottages, one nestled within the Surrey town of Ash Vale and the other in the much sought after location of Hartley Wintney. Both present two double bedrooms and the period charm you can expect from properties of this time.
Dutchman’s Cottage is a stunning three bedroom family home in Normandy that has been lovingly refurbished by the current owners who have renovated the property in a turn-of-the-century Arts and Crafts/Edwardian style, sourcing features such as Oak parquet flooring to the same age as the house (1890). The generous lounge not only presents a cast iron log burner creating to the perfect cosy winter room but also, charming wall panelling and an eye catching cast iron spiral staircase rising to the first floor.
Wykeham House is situated betwixt the villages of Odiham and Hartley Wintney, this mature detached four bedroom family home stands within tree fringed grounds and would ideally suit a growing family who wish to live in a semi rural environment. This wonderful property boasts spacious, versatile accommodation that has been beautifully finished by the current owner. Understood to have been constructed around 40 years ago, the property has been extended to the side to create a conservatory with delightful garden views.
Lastly, we have Candle Cottage in Hartley Wintney, a beautiful four bedroom detached home set within woodland down a quiet lane with land approaching 2.4 acres. The house has the feel of a secluded rural home yet it is in walking distance of shops, restaurants and the local train station. As well as plenty of outside space, the cottage also has an abundance of space inside with three reception rooms and a kitchen breakfast room. Both the front sitting room and the dining room benefit from those much desired solid fuel fire places, making this a perfect winter retreat.
