Open aspect over countryside

Sitting in a third of an acre gardens with a lovely open aspect over countryside, this detached cottage is quietly situated in the rural hamlet of Redenham in the Test Valley which sits centrally within a square created by Winchester, Salisbury, Marlborough and Newbury. Local amenities are available in nearby villages and the mainline station at Andover is within five miles.

Beautifully presented, Dove Cottage has well proportioned accommodation with great character. Grade II listed, this is a pretty thatched cottage with lovely cottage style gardens.

The thatched entrance porch has slate flooring and ledged double doors open into a spacious open plan reception room where an open fireplace with oak beam above houses a wood burning stove and two windows open to the southerly aspect of the side garden. In the designated dining area exposed beams and timbers set the scene. The farmhouse style kitchen is well fitted with beech work surfaces on cream units, a Rangemaster set in a brick recess, other essential appliances and space on the cream tiled floor for a breakfast table.

Upstairs are two double bedrooms, both with lovely eyebrow windows, one with an adjacent bathroom complete with roll top bath and one with its own cloakroom; together with a further room ideal as a dressing room or occasional bedroom. An additional bedroom suite with a shower room on the ground floor makes a good guest suite and has a door to the garden

The main garden has a gently sloping lawn with inset lavender and rose borders and there is a variety of fruit trees, gravelled paths and useful thatched outhouse. A timber outbuilding provides three loose boxes or store rooms with a hay store at one end.

To the other side of the property there is an enclosed cottage garden with fencing with trellis work above, well stocked shrub borders and a raised paved patio with open views.
