Kings Somborne, Stockbridge, Hampshire So20

2 bedrooms

A large detached cottage with three excellent reception rooms and two large double bedrooms standing in a good size mature garden on the edge of the village

Property Details


An extended detached period cottage constructed of white washed elevations beneath a thatched roof with spacious accommodation extending to over 1,500 sq ft.  On the ground floor there is a good size reception hall with exposed flint walls, a cosy dual aspect sitting room with fireplace housing a wood burning stove, very large living room (also with fireplace and stove), separate dining room with exposed flint wall and beams, kitchen and shower room. For the size of the cottage the kitchen is small and we believe there is great scope to create a superb open plan kitchen/breakfast room within the existing living room, and converting the original kitchen into a utility/boot room.  On the first floor there is a central landing with bathroom and two spacious dual aspect double bedrooms.  It is also worth noting that there is a substantial loft void over the living room that may lend itself to conversion into additional accommodation if all the required consents could be obtained.

Outside there is a generous area of off-road parking and a timber garage. The property has an attractive mature garden extending to the rear of the cottage which enjoys a good degree of privacy, and a courtyard area of garden to the front.


The property is situated on the edge of the popular village of King’s Somborne which offers everyday facilities including a Post Office/village store, primary school, church and public house.  The picturesque town of Stockbridge, traversed by the River Test, is just three minutes away to north and offers a variety of shops, Post Office, hotels and public houses, tea rooms/restaurants, churches, a doctors’ surgery and primary and secondary schools.   The abbey town of Romsey is approximately seven miles to the south, and the cathedral cities of Salisbury and Winchester are both within a half hour drive.  There are also excellent road links to London and the West Country via the M3 and A303 and also to the South Coast.
