A GRADE II listed thatched cottage surrounded by its own gardens and a tennis court is on the market.

Rose Cottage, a pretty 17th Century home with later additions, was formerly an Estate cottage on the renowned Breamore Estate and sits centrally within its picturesque gardens.

Situated within the West Wiltshire Downs, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this three bedroom cottage is nestled in a pretty corner of Outwick and enjoys views of the surrounding countryside.

Rose Cottage is entered via a thatched porch, which leads to a sitting room with inglenook fireplace.

The adjoining triple-aspect kitchen has bespoke wooden units and dishwasher, fridge, freezer and range cooker.

To one end of the kitchen there is a dining area with a door which opens out onto the garden. A study that could, alternatively, be used as a fourth bedroom completes the ground floor, along with a cloakroom/lavatory.

The stairs lead up to a landing, with access to the dual-aspect principal bedroom, which has fitted cupboards, two further double bedrooms and a family bathroom.

The secluded and peaceful garden, with boundaries of deep mixed hedging, is laid mainly to lawn, with well-stocked borders of roses, peonies, irises and lupins.

The garden also boasts a variety of mature trees, such as silver birch, magnolia, apple and willow, as well as a vegetable garden. Two small wooden foot bridges take you across the Winterbourne to the tennis court.

Paul Cadge, property agent at Savills in Salisbury, said: “This really is the quintessential chocolate box cottage in an idyllic setting. Breamore is well known for its myriad of thatched cottages and Rose Cottage has such warmth and offers a real sense of privacy with its beautiful gardens.

"It also has a wide selection of both state and private schools in the area and nearby Fordingbridge offers a range of facilities, including a supermarket and small independent shops.”

Rose Cottage is being marketed by Savills for a guide price of £795,000. For more information, contact Savills Salisbury on 01722 426820.
