Perfect setting

Micheldever is a pretty village in lovely countryside yet within easy reach of Winchester, Basingstoke and London, via the excellent train service from the local station. There are also good community services in the village including a primary school, church, shop and public house.

This is the setting for an utterly charming Grade II listed cottage which sits in the heart of the village. This principally thatched cottage dates from the 16th century and a more recent extension provides a superb sitting room with a brick fireplace and wood burning stove, French doors to the garden and a master bedroom suite above with plenty of storage and a bathroom.

The kitchen is a good size with space for relaxed dining and a further reception room doubles as a formal dining room and study. There is also a ground floor cloakroom.

A split level landing branches off to three good bedrooms, all with fitted wardrobes, and the family bathroom.

A detached home office adds to the appeal of this home and is ideal for those working from home or for use as a playroom or studio. There is also a garage at the front of the property behind which is a secluded courtyard ideal for al fresco dining. Other areas of the garden have attractive planting around the lawn and at the front a path leads through a lawn, past a well stocked herb garden to the entrance. The driveway provides parking for a number of cars and leads to the garage.
