Chestnut CottageWith origins dating back to 1680, this wonderful cottage has all the charm and features you would expect, while providing a spacious interior from additional accommodation that has been extended over the years.

This wonderful property is set in grounds of approximately a third of an acre, within the popular village of Hook with its abundance of local amenities and a train station servicing London Waterloo.  

Chestnut Cottage hallExtensions that have been added over the years have created a wonderfully spacious interior and also helped to protect the original 17th century features.  This is immediately evident as you open the front door into the entrance hall to reveal the original façade of the building. This most attractive hallway has a vaulted ceiling, a tiled floor and the beamed wall in front with white washed sections and exposed brick work is a joy. From here there is a turning staircase to the first floor and doors to the kitchen and reception rooms.

To the right of the hall is a door to an inner lobby from which there are doors to the family bathroom and the master bedroom. The master bedroom is light and generous and features an attractive bay window as well as a rear window looking over the gardens and there is a comprehensive range of built in wardrobes.
