This unique letting presents a rare opportunity to live in a Grade II listed property, set within an idyllic rural location, yet ideally well-positioned for commuters.

Well-situated in a quiet rural parish, positioned within acres of stunning, secluded Hampshire countryside, this setting is ideal for leisurely strolls and drives, with a backdrop that really takes you back to nature, offering open fields with footpaths.

A variety of period homes add such charm to this quaint, picturesque village location, featuring the luxurious period hotels; Heckfield House and Highfield Park. The rural location further benefits from being well-connected for commuters, offering great access to neighbouring towns and villages; within easy reach of Hartley Wintney, Hook, Reading and Basingstoke.

This well-maintained period cottage offers a rare sense of history and culture, dating back almost two centuries, to circa 1830. Yet, despite the age of the property, it presents generous accommodation, featuring three reception areas, a versatile ground floor double bedroom and two further double bedrooms upstairs – with the accommodation of course benefitting from character features throughout.

A light and airy living room offers triple aspect views overlooking the gardens, a feature brick wall with an inset wood burning stove and exposed timber beams into a vaulted ceiling. A characterful kitchen benefits from a range of fitted units, well-equipped with appliances, including a dishwasher, fridge/freezer and a range style Belling cooker. Accessed from the kitchen, a separate dining room presents a built-in feature brick fireplace.  

A good-sized family room/conservatory offers the rare feature of two opposite sets of French doors, leading to both the front and rear gardens. The versatile ground floor double bedroom benefits from a three piece en suite shower, whilst upstairs, the bathroom has been refitted, offering a white suite.

The property further features three gardens, to the front, side and rear. To the front, a pretty cottage garden is well-established with lawn, mature plants and shrubs, enclosed with a picket fence. A side garden presents a great space for children to play, offering a lawn, enclosed and screened with mature trees and shrubs, whilst to the rear, a paved patio area is well-suited to al fresco dining. A generous shingle driveway also provides plenty of parking for numerous vehicles.
