PIcturesque Living

Carpenters Cottage is one of a number of dwellings built in 1985 on what was the carpenter’s yard in the centre of the picturesque South Downs village of Hambledon. A stable door leads from the private courtyard garden into the open plan living room/ dining room, linking to the kitchen, recently fitted with Bosch appliances. Oak flooring runs through the living area adding to the feeling of space, and there is a wood burner in the living room. On the first floor the generous landing, with skylight, links the well proportioned principle bedroom, second double bedroom and large bathroom, all stylishly fitted with a contemporary feel. Both bedrooms look out onto the courtyard garden. To the front of the cottage the paved patio garden is easily managed, with some mature shrubs which add to the private sheltered feel. To the rear of Carpenter’s Yard there is a single garage which is useful in this village centre location, and there is additional off street parking for two further cars.

Carpenters Cottage is central to the village, close to the popular Village Stores, in the heart of Hambledon. Famous for its history and strong association with cricket, this is a pretty rural village surrounded by the South Downs National Park and National Trust downland. There is a combined infant and primary school ranked Outstanding by Ofsted, two village shops, a church, pub and well known cricket club. The surrounding countryside is known for its lovely walks and extensive riding.

A good range of local shops and amenities are available in nearby Denmead, and both Winchester and Petersfield are easily accessible offering more extensive facilities, each with mainline stations and more extensive shopping and leisure facilities.

The A3 provides a direct link to London, the South Coast and the M27 network to Chichester and Southampton Airport.
