A delightful four bedroom period cottage offering surprisingly spacious accommodation and enjoying a central village location. With origins dating back to 1760's, this delightful home retains much of the original character and charm associated with its era including sash windows, exposed beam and brick fireplaces fused with the practical comforts of modern living with open plan reception spaces, a downstairs cloakroom and conservatory. There is also a separate dining room and four spacious bedrooms. The cottage style gardens are well stocked and feature a variety of specimen trees including a stunning Magnolia tree and flower beds. Whiteparish is very well provided for in village amenities and is situated within easy reach of the New Forest with its wonderful walks and yet with convenient access to Salisbury, Southampton and Bournemouth.


A solid wood front door opens into a quaint snug with exposed brick fireplace and gas stove. The hall features a solid wood floor and access to the principal reception space. The open plan L-shaped living/dining room is beautifully bright, and is centred upon an exposed brick fireplace with wood burning stove inset. The kitchen is equipped with an extensive range of duck egg eye and base level units with granite worktops incorporating a breakfast bar. It is centred upon a red gas fired Aga and integrated appliances include a dishwasher and fridge. The kitchen is supplemented by a useful utility room, with ‘Shaker' style cottage units and Belfast sink together with a stone tiled floor with access to the rear garden and a cloakroom.

The first floor landing leads to the master bedroom which appreciates a dual aspect. Bedroom two features an overhead wardrobe, and accesses to a further bedroom with fitted wardrobe whilst bedroom three currently offers fitted storage. A staircase descends to the snug. The bedrooms are served by a family bathroom with white three piece suite comprising claw foot roll top bath with separate shower cubicle, W/C and wash hand basin.


A pedestrian side gate and covered access leads to the impressive cottage rear gardens which are delightful. Enclosed by a low level period wall and predominantly laid to lawn, there is an established Magnolia tree with mature terraced flower beds and shrub borders. There is a brick built log store on the patio adjacent to the rear elevation and a pleasant rear decking area, which both provide an ideal summer entertaining venue.


The property is located within the popular village of Whiteparish, favoured for its excellent day to day amenities including shop, choice of public houses, church, hall, doctors surgery and highly regarded primary school. The property is within 50 metres of a multi user games area, a newly refurbished playground and playing fields. There is easy commuter access to Romsey, Southampton and Salisbury, in addition to its wealth of recreational, cultural and educational amenities whilst falling within the catchment area of the acclaimed Salisbury grammar schools.
