This weeks selected property overlooks Hartley Wintney Cricket Green, the oldest in the county with matches being played there since the late 1700’s.

Around The Green the majority of the properties are character terraced properties but this property is one of only a few detached dwellings that enjoy a view directly over Hartley Wintney’s historic cricket pitch along with both Causeway Pond and the village golf course.

Living at the heart of the village with summer cricket matches and celebrations right on your doorstep, this is an ideal property for anyone loving a close knit community and village lifestyle.

The village has amenities such as a doctor’s surgery, bank, pharmacy, newsagent, veterinarian, beauty salon, church, infant and junior schools as well as a selection of traditional village shops including butcher, florist, sweet shop, news agent and off licence. Local shopping includes several clothing boutiques, and antiques shops for which the village is also well known. For entertainment in the village, aside from the annual visiting fair and summer activities on the green there are several village pubs and restaurants.

This three bedroom cottage provides an extremely rare opportunity to reside in one of North Hampshire’s most sought after locations. The house retains its character, but has been extended and opened up to create more spacious rooms, including a 32 foot principal reception room which features an open brick fireplace, wooden floor and French doors to the rear garden.

The main reception room is open plan to the cottage style fitted kitchen of with a large feature spot for the traditional Aga accented by decorative tiling and natural wooden beam above, complemented by an attractive yet practical stone floor. There are a further two reception rooms, spacious entrance hall and utility room to the ground floor.

To the first floor of the property are three bedrooms and a family bathroom which includes a free standing bath and separate shower cubicle.

The property has a back garden which is mainly lawn but with an area of shingle, raised flower beds and mature border shrubs; however with the whole cricket green and Hartley Wintney Common on your door step there’s no shortage of outside space to hand.

Hartley Wintney is conveniently located for access to Basingstoke via nearby M3 and Reading by a rather scenic route as well as being only a short drive from mainline rail stations at Hook and Winchfield providing easy access to London.
