A lovely period cottage in a rural location with 0.5 acres of grounds
THE PROPERTY Cutlers Farm House is a detached period farmhouse dating we believe from the 17th century with more recent additions. It was completely refurbished by our clients about 10 years ago and offers surprisingly spacious and flexible accommodation. Of particular note is the good size main sitting room with inglenook fireplace, the large hall and lovely big kitchen/dining/garden room. On the first floor there are two bedrooms serviced by a family bathroom and then on the ground floor a further bedroom with adjacent shower room. If four bedrooms are required, you could also use the study as a bedroom. For a cottage of this age, the accommodation is surprisingly spacious and bright, and it is one that needs to be viewed to be truly appreciated.
OUTSIDE Adjacent to the house is a good sized parking area with space for a few cars. At the front of the house there is an area of terracing and beyond this an open area of lawn and this is where the private drainage is located. To the rear of the kitchen there is a good sized terrace leading round to the side of the house as well and steps lead up to further areas of lawn. The rear of the terrace there are open areas of lawn and at the rear, on agricultural land, an area of hard standing. The grounds total about 0.5 acres in all.
LOCATION The house lies out in open countryside to the north of Portsdown Hill and is one of two houses formed out of a period farm yard. The nearest day to day facilities are available a couple of miles away in Denmead and for a more comprehensive range of shopping, sport and leisure facilities including Waitrose, Waterlooville is just over two miles away to the east, where there is an M&S Food Hall. Both the South Coast and The Downs are a short drive away and the larger regional centres of Portsmouth, Chichester, Winchester and Guildford are all within reasonable driving distance. Access to the London to Portsmouth railway line can be found at Havant, Rowlands Castle or Petersfield. There are lots of good walks in the area including a footpath adjacent to the property giving direct access onto open countryside.
