Opportunity for cottage lifestyle

Renting a home often provides an opportunity to explore a different lifestyle and here at Kimpton, a pretty village near Andover, April Cottage is just such a property.

Located in a quiet rural spot in the village, the cottage is, however, within a short drive of the centre of Andover where there are excellent shops and a mainline connection to Waterloo in just over an hour.

But April Cottage is really about the cottage itself, the lovely rural surroundings, and the wonderful character and lifestyle it suggests.

Beautifully presented, the thatched cottage is full of period charm with exposed beams and a lovely farmhouse style kitchen/breakfast room, complete with a range style oven, and with doors to a small courtyard leading to the garden. The sitting room has a wood burning stove to keep things cosy at this time of year and there is a separate dining room. Both these reception rooms have fabulous beamed ceilings. A rear lobby has doors to a shower room and a utility room.

The first floor is split into two sections, with two bedrooms and the family bathroom in one half and two larger bedrooms in the other accessed via a second staircase.

Outside is a beautifully maintained private garden laid mainly to lawn and includes a range of mature shrubs and plants amongst other features. The driveway has plenty of parking and access to a single garage.

The agent quotes a monthly rent of £1,695 on an unfurnished basis and says that the cottage could be available at short notice. Contact Hamptons International in Winchester on 01962 853046 for more details.
