Unique detached home

Demonstrating exquisite style and an imaginative refurbishment programme, Old Rectory Cottage at Abbots Worthy is a smart detached property with versatile accommodation which flows effortlessly through the living space and lovely kitchen which has French doors opening to gardens on the eastern and western flanks.

Formerly a gardener’s cottage, this home enjoys a quiet location in the hamlet of Abbots Worthy which sits on the edge of Winchester and has easy access to the motorway network. Cleverly extended to fulfil modern expectations, much of the living space is open plan with wide low steps separating the visual aspect and creating an interesting layout.

From the entrance hall a window gives a glimpse of the south facing aspect to the rear and a door opens to the dining room which has a tall and wide window to the front and underfloor heating beneath the wooden flooring which continues through into the family room. Steps from here lead down into the stunning kitchen which is a superb space for entertaining with an extensive range of Leicht units, granite work surfaces, a good range of integrated appliances and a large island unit with a breakfast bar extension. A useful utility room and cloakroom lead off here with a door to the garden.

A separate sitting room on the other side of the hall provides a peaceful space away from the main living areas and has a wood burning stove on a slate hearth, underfloor heating and a door to a study.

Stairs from the hall rise to the first floor landing which has exposed beams and doors to four bedrooms. The largest bedroom has a wonderful vaulted ceiling, exposed beams, a range of fitted wardrobes and French doors to a west facing balcony. Adjacent to this room is the fourth bedroom and a shower room which, if combined, could create a superb suite. One of the other double bedrooms has its own shower room and there is also a family bathroom.

Mature, well tended gardens surround the house on all sides, providing a lovely setting. At the front is a wide area for parking, whilst to the sides and rear there are paved terraces, flower and shrub borders around the lawn and mature hedges marking the boundaries.
