"Sunny Cottage is a delightful character home located one mile form the Hamble River, Warsash village centre and its range of local amenities. This charming home is steeped in character and local history and would provide the ideal property for anyone looking for seclusion."

Upon entering the property through its solid hardwood front door, you immediately notice the wealth of period charm and character that it has to offer. A tiled floor extends throughout with substantial fitted storage provided and a doorway leading to a ground floor cloakroom. Stairs rise to the first floor and an additional doorway leads through to a sizeable study that is ideal for those who require space to work from home. The living room measures a comfortable 13ft2 x 12ft8 and enjoys the benefit of an Inglenook fireplace that is ideal for a roaring fire on a cosy evening in. Exposed beams and character windows provide a traditional cottage feel, with openings leading to other nooks, crannies and reception areas. Having been added in more recent times the family room enjoys a high open vaulted ceiling and can easily accommodate sizeable modern furniture. The dining room enjoys an open fireplace that has been enhanced with a substantial wood-burning stove. There is room for a large dining table and chairs and a staircase rises to the first floor. Truly the heart of this home, the kitchen extends to an impressive 19ft with room for a breakfast table. It comprises a range of handmade storage cupboards with low-level base units and drawers to match. A granite work top incorporates a butler-style sink with mixer tap, whilst fitted appliances include a fridge freezer, dishwasher and a gas fired Aga with integrated electric oven. The larder cupboard also provides excellent storage. Also located on the ground floor is a sizeable utility room with dual access to the rear garden. It comprises a row of storage cupboards with space and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer.

The first floor accommodates four double bedrooms each with access to en suite facilities and an array of built-in wardrobes. The en suite that adjoins the master bedroom has been recently refitted and comprises a large walk-in shower cubicle with rain head shower attachment, a rolled top bath with mixer tap, low-level W/C with mixer tap and a heated towel rail.

The property is tucked away down a private lane just off of Fleet End Road in Warsash. Accessed via a set of wooden gates there is ample parking provided for several vehicles. There is a large carport with adjoining office space/games room and scope for creating an in-and-out driveway if desired. The grounds beautifully maintained grounds extend to approximately 2 acres that comprise well-maintained lawns and patio areas as well as access to a private stream and a large area of ancient woodland. There is also the addition of a substantial workshop with power and lighting connected.
