A charming, deceptively spacious period property with private cottage garden and off-road parking.
Believed to date back to 1889, this beautifully presented character property is situated centrally within the sought-after village of Winkton, with great access routes to the larger centres of Christchurch and Bournemouth.
Arranged over three floors, the property has undergone a schedule of improvement works over the years and provides well-appointed accommodation with character features throughout. There are timber floorboards, natural stone floor tiles and a delightful fireplace to the sitting room.
Set back from Burley Road, on Winkton Green, the property is accessed via a pedestrian footway and a stable front door.
The ground floor comprises entrance hall, sitting room, kitchen with integrated appliances, dining/family room with vaulted ceiling and French doors to the garden and a WC.
A spiral staircase leads from the entrance hall to the first and second floors. The first floor provides two double bedrooms, one of which features exposed floorboards and a feature fireplace.
There is a family bathroom with large bath, bespoke vanity unit,
bowl sink and a WC. The second floor comprises a further bedroom. With Velux windows, this room houses the combi-boiler and benefits from shelving and eaves storage. There are pleasant views over Winkton to countryside beyond.
The fully enclosed, partly walled cottage garden is a particular feature of the property and benefits from an outbuilding with workshop and office/studio. The outbuilding provides potential for further conversion if required (subject to any necessary consents). There is also a useful storage shed to the side of the property.
The garden is mainly laid to lawn with planted borders and a brick-paved terrace. Double gates lead from Salisbury Road to a block paved parking area which the current owners use as a larger terrace/sitting area.
Lying just beyond the Western boundary of the New Forest National Park and sitting on the edge of the Avon Valley, Winkton is well placed to enjoy the surrounding countryside, the South coast as well as being within easy reach of the motorway network across the South and to London. There mainline stations to London Waterloo from Christchurch and Bournemouth. Bournemouth International Airport is 3.5 miles (approx.).
The village of Winkton has a popular village inn, The Fisherman's Haunt and the Lamb Inn at Bockhampton is within easy reach. For a greater selection of amenities, Christchurch is approximately 2.5 miles with a range of commercial, shopping and sporting facilities.
