Believed to date back to the mid 18th century, this beautiful grade II listed period cottage enjoys a centralised position in Titchfield. Having been sympathetically restored and upgraded throughout, this charming period home boasts a wealth of elegant traditional features, such as exposed beams mixed with up-to-date modern luxuries including a garage, off road parking and a sizeable rear garden backing onto open greenery.
The property is entered through a panelled door. Upon entering the living room, you immediately notice its light and airy feel, having been tastefully decorated throughout. An inglenook fireplace incorporates a wood burning stove and provides the ideal focal point. Solid oak flooring extends through to the rear sitting area with a set of glazed doors which open out onto the rear patio. Extending to 32ft in length the kitchen comprises a range of handmade wall mounted storage cupboards with low level base units and drawers to match. A granite worktop incorporates a double butler sink. Fitted appliances include a three oven gas Aga, twin full height fridge/freezers and a Neff dishwasher. A flagstone floor extends through to an appointed dining area with ample space for a table, chairs and sideboard if desired. Also located on the ground floor is a handy utility room with fitted conventional oven, ceramic hob and integrated Neff microwave oven. Access is provided to a ground floor cloakroom with W/C. A door leads through to the integral garage which benefits from an electric garage door, fitted cupboards, and space for a washing machine and tumble dryer. A stable door leads to the rear garden.
The first floor accommodates three double bedrooms, each with fitted wardrobes. The master bedroom benefits from luxury en suite facilities (fitted in 2019) that comprise a walk-in shower cubicle with rain head shower, a low-level W/C and a wash hand basin with mixer tap. Having been refitted in a similar contemporary design to the en suite, the family bathroom (fitted in 2020) comprises a tiled bath with mixer tap and separate rinser, a walk-in shower cubicle with rain head shower, a low-level W/C and a wash hand basin with mixer tap and fitted storage. Both bathrooms enjoy the benefit of Porcelanosa tiles, under floor heating and heated towel rails.
The property is accessed via an attractive cottage front garden, with driveway parking provided in front of the garage. Enjoying a high degree of privacy, the rear garden is mainly laid to lawn with a silvern backdrop opening out onto Barry’s Meadow.
