Dean, Sparsholt, Winchester, Hampshire So21
A charming and most attractive detached period cottage in an idyllic quiet setting on the edge of Sparsholt, enjoying a pleasant outlook at the front toward paddock land and countryside, together with a mature garden, garage and parking
A charming detached cottage with brick elevations beneath a thatched roof. The compact accommodation which has been carefully maintained comprises a dual aspect sitting room with open fireplace, separate dining room, study/bedroom three and small hand-built kitchen. To the first floor there are two bedrooms (one a good size double) and the bathroom is located at the foot of the stairs. On the opposite side of the lane there is a useful parking area with space for three vehicles, a detached barn style garage and kitchen garden to the rear. The main mature garden extends to the rear of the cottage and features well stocked borders and mature trees. There is also a summerhouse with decked area to the side boundary.
The property is situated in a rural setting in Dean, a small hamlet near the village of Sparsholt, approximately 2 miles from the cathedral city of Winchester, a 10 minute drive from the mainline railway station with trains to Waterloo in just over one hour, and 6 miles east of the picturesque town of Stockbridge. Sparsholt village offers everyday facilities including a church, primary school, public house, village hall and post office/store (located within a tiny building which we understand was originally the Well House of the village holding water drawn from a wind-powered well for use by the villagers).
