This homely cottage offers lovely character features and is in need of an owner who will provide it with some loving care and really bring it up-to-date.

With plenty of grounds available, there is, according to Branch Manager, Simon Dredge, “huge potential” for this property to be extended (STPP), enabling the right owner to really place their stamp on this property.

Set in the heart of the large rural village of Hook, this countryside setting includes reputable schools, community halls and parks combined with a range of independent high street shops in the village centre. The commuting options are quite impressive, with easy access to the M3 and the A30 as well as a mainline train station serving London Waterloo, Reading and Southampton directly.

The location offers a tempting variety of leisure activities, is close to Odiham and only 6 miles from Basingstoke. Odiham offers a wealth of historical culture, including Odiham Castle and Dogmersfield Park. Basingstoke features Festival Place which hosts a wide selection of restaurants as well as an extensive range of shops, leisure and entertainment venues.

A large shingle driveway leads up to the property, surrounded by greenery. The cottage welcomes you with an ornate covered entrance and a solid hardwood front door, providing access directly into the living room. The living room is a cosy, yet light, airy and spacious area with a bay window letting in plenty of natural light, an exposed timber beam and an ornate brick fireplace, creating an ideal space to sit and relax comfortably.

A designated dining room is perfect for entertaining; featuring wood effect flooring and sliding patio doors overlooking the garden, along with being conveniently open plan into a modern, refitted kitchen.
The kitchen offers pleasant views into the garden and is fitted with a full range of country style units. The kitchen benefits from the luxury of integrated appliances, with an electric oven, a four ring gas hob, an overhead fan extractor fan fitted into the units and a fridge/freezer.

Further on is an advantageous third bedroom, or family room, which has views over the front of the house and the rear with double aspect windows. At over 18ft long, this room could be used for a multitude of purposes. There is also the possibility to extend this room out with the dining room and create a modern open plan living space (STPP).

There is a modern shower room partially tiled in soft blue tones and conveniently situated downstairs. It features a double width shower and a white suite, with wood effect vinyl flooring and a wall mounted heated towel rail.

Upstairs, a light, airy and spacious master and second bedroom overlook the front of the property and both contain useful eaves storage space.
