Renovated village home

This charming Grade II listed house is set in stunning gardens of nearly half an acre in the beautiful village of Hambledon near Petersfield. The area forms part of the South Downs National Park, has always been an area of outstanding natural beauty and offers an abundance of footpaths and bridleways including the South Downs Way.

The main façade of The Cottage is draped in wisteria and a brick path leads to the front door. The lovely gardens form a stunning backdrop with well stocked beds bordering lawns, a rose garden and a rockery, in all extending to just under half an acre. There is also a brick and flint former coach house which incorporates garaging and storage with additional space above.

The property had been the subject of extensive renovation and decoration which has greatly enhanced the fine proportions of the formal rooms and features such as exposed principal beams, fireplaces, working shutters and even the old call bells have been retained and restored.

The sitting room, dining room and study all lead off the reception hall and there is a formal drawing room with a door to the garden, whilst on the other side of the house the lovely kitchen has French doors opening to a brick terrace from where steps rise through a dwarf wall to the garden. The kitchen is exceptionally fitted with painted cabinets upon a flagstone floor and there is space for casual dining. The large utility room is a bonus and further storage is provided by the cellar which leads down from here.

The fine staircase rises through the centre of the house pausing on the first floor at three principal bedrooms and two superb bathrooms before continuing up to three further good size attic rooms and another bathroom.
