This quintessential 17th Century listed cottage is located in the heart of the sought after Crookham Village in Hampshire. Oozing with charm and character the property has many original features, as one would expect from a home of this era, but with the additional appeal of a modern kitchen and home office.
Entering the cottage via an entrance hall, there is a large kitchen breakfast and dining room, being the entire depth of the property. The kitchen is fitted to a high standard in a style to compliment the age and character of the house. There are cream cabinets and hardwood worktops, a double butler sink and a large Rangemaster oven with gas hob. The fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washer dryer are all integrated. The remaining area is currently used as a more formal dining room, although would be equally suited to an informal eating/living space. Currently used as a study, there is a further room off this area, facing out to the rear garden.
From the dining area the large conservatory can be accessed. The conservatory is very roomy with ample space for sofas and chairs, laid with an oak floor and with the roof blinds giving much needed shade in the summer months, this room is very much a usuable living space. For those chilly winter evenings the sitting room, with it's large inglenook fireplace, open style wood burner and original wall and ceiling beams, it couldn't be cosier!
There is a downstairs shower room with wc off the hallway.
Up on the first floor there are three bedrooms. The master bedroom with dressing area faces out to the rear garden with views of the fields beyond. The second bedroom, also a double room has built in storage, and the third bedroom is a single room. The bathroom is fitted with a traditional Victorian style white suite of bath, high level cistern WC and handbasin.
The gardens and grounds are particularly lovely. Adjacent to the conservatory are two distinct areas - one for quiet relaxation in a raised area bordered by brick walling - the other for alfresco entertaining! Beyond this is a large lawn with established borders stocked with all manner of shrubs and plants. At the furthest part of the garden there is a home office for those wanting to work from home, but needing separation from living space distractions. Finally, at the foot of the garden there is a raised patio, a greenhouse and a summerhouse.
At the front of the house, there is a gravel driveway with parking for 3 cars easily - 5 if parked more strategically.
Crookham Village is an extremely sought after location. There are a number of popular pubs and restaurants in close proximatey, a village general stores with Post Office and excellant local schools within the catchment. Fleet and Winchfield mainline stations are within easy reach as is the M3.
Lavender Cottage would suit those looking for a country home with unlimited charm in a village location. For those who are able to work from home from time to time but need access to major routes when necessary, this property would be particularly appealing.
