Winter Cottage is situated down a quiet lane on the edge of the popular village of West Tytherley. West Tytherley is a quiet rural village in the Test Valley surrounded by rolling farmland. The village has a range of amenities including a village shop/post office, church, public house, a well-regarded Church of England primary school and Norman Court Montessori school. There is an excellent range of both private and state schools in the surrounding area including Farleigh School, Chafyn Grove, Godolphin and both girls and boys grammar schools in Salisbury. The village is conveniently situated between the cathedral cities of Salisbury and Winchester which provide comprehensive shopping and amenity facilities. The pretty Test Valley town of Stockbridge is also nearby and has a good range of shops, a deli, fishmonger and butcher and a small supermarket. There is an excellent network of roads in the area to all parts of the country including the A303, A34, M3 and M27 coastal motorway. There are mainline railway stations at Salisbury, Winchester and Grateley on the Waterloo line.
Winter Cottage is a rather special period family home occupying a delightful position within the village of West Tytherley. The property has undergone significant enhancement, resulting in some excellent accommodation, all of which is presented to a high standard.
Particular features of note include a fantastic kitchen/breakfast room with a range of units including cupboard and drawer sections and work surface over. The room provides excellent space for preparation and entertaining. The oak framed garden room with its fantastic views out over the surrounding grounds links in well with the main kitchen area and with a central fireplace provides an excellent space for everyday living. In the original part of the property is the central snug/library with attractive fireplace and exposed timber floorboards, making for an atmospheric room. The drawing room is accessed off this area and provides a really charming space for entertaining, with lots of character and outlook over the front grounds. A large utility/boot room is a particularly practical space ideal for this idyllic village/rural lifestyle.
There is a guest bedroom at ground floor level with en suite shower room, and at first floor there is a total of three bedrooms including a master bedroom suite with en suite bathroom. A family bathroom services the remaining rooms.
In summary, the presentation of this property is impressive, and the character and history of this house is clearly evident.
The property is approached via electric gates which open out onto a gravelled driveway providing ample parking for numerous vehicles as well as access to the garaging.
The gardens lie predominantly to one side of the property and wrap around to the rear, and are very much in keeping with the character feel of the property with some attractive planting and established borders providing a good degree of interest throughout the year. At one end of the garden is an outdoor swimming pool, which is separated by a picket fence and, with its summerhouse, provides a superb space for relaxing and outdoor entertaining. As one meanders to the rear of the property the gardens open out to a greater expanse of lawn which leads up to the 2 main paddocks which run to the far boundaries. There is a vegetable garden with raised beds and a plant house, and the large outbuilding offers a degree of flexibility.
