A most attractive country cottage enjoying a lovely rural position and offering stylish accommodation, ample garaging and separate annexe.

THE PROPERTY Walpole Cottage is an attractive country cottage, believed to date back to the late 1700s, enjoying a lovely rural position overlooking neighbouring countryside. Offering stylish and well presented accommodation throughout the cottage has been thoughtfully adapted and enlarged over the years and boasts abundant charm and character. Notable features include an attractive exposed fireplace, bespoke fitted kitchen, lovely timber joinery throughout and a wonderful contemporary family / dining room with extensive glazing giving direct access to the garden and its delightful outlook.

LOCATION Walpole Cottage enjoys a rural situation with views over neighbouring countryside. Although rural, local amenities are nearby with Liss village 2.4 miles and Selborne 2.8 miles away with their local shops and public houses. More extensive shopping can be found in Alton or Petersfield. The A3 provides great regional transport links to Petersfield, Guildford, Chichester and Portsmouth (ferry services). There are well regarded state and private schools within the region, including Bedales, Ditcham Park and Churcher's College in Petersfield and prep schools such as Highfield in Liphook. For any commuter there is a choice of Alton, Petersfield or Liss stations offering various scheduled services to London Waterloo.

OUTSIDE Walpole Cottage is approached via a private, personal pedestrian gate and separate double gates from the lane opening to a shingled parking area which in turn provides access to the garaging facilities. The garages comprise a detached triple barn style garage with heating - ideally suited for a car collector - an Annexe / Office above and a further, separate barn style double garage. The remainder of the cottage gardens, which envelope the house, are principally laid to lawn with mature hedge borders to the front and side providing a high degree of privacy and a low fence at the rear allowing enjoyment of the neighbouring paddocks, fields and view beyond. In addition, there is a paved patio area for relaxing and outdoor entertaining. In all the gardens and grounds extend to approximately 0.3 acres (0.12 ha).
