Rural Retreat with Elevated Views

Situated in a stunning elevated position with far reaching views over unspoilt countryside, this charming period thatched cottage is the perfect rural retreat.

There is excellent walking available directly from the cottage and the small village of Farringdon, with its church and two public houses is a mile away. Alton with good shopping, major supermarkets and mainline station which brings Waterloo within about an hour’s commute, is approximately four miles. Winchester, Farnham, Guildford and Petersfield are all within easy reach.

Beautifully restored and extended to provide comfortable accommodation, the entrance hall opens to a light and airy living area with an inglenook fireplace and superb original brick chimney breast and period beams. The kitchen has been comprehensively fitted with a range of units and appliances and the dining area opens to a timber framed loggia and paved seating area with the best of the views. A further room on the ground floor is ideal either as a study or fourth bedroom and has French doors to another paved terrace.

The staircase leads to a galleried landing with exposed timbers and fitted storage. The master bedroom has a magnificent vaulted ceiling, fireplace with original brick chimney breast and fitted window seat. Two further double bedrooms and two well appointed bathrooms; one with a power shower. As expected, the views of the countryside are even better from the first floor and the interior is decorated in pale neutral tones giving a light and contemporary feel.

This charming cottage is set in attractive gardens which are easy to maintain with paved seating areas and shared use of a vegetable garden. Accessed via a gravel driveway there is parking for two or three cars.
