An attractive extended cottage constructed in the local vernacular of brick and flint with tile hung elevations. This lovely home over-looks open countryside and its own pretty cottage garden and is set within this small hamlet which is situated between Winchester, Petersfield and Alton all of which are within a short driving distance. The cottage has been extensively and sympathetically refurbished by the current owners with interiors created by a Chelsea school of Art trained designer and many original features retained including exposed beams and timbers. The accommodation is attractively appointed around a private courtyard, with all of the ground floor rooms opening onto this outside space, which is perfect for alfresco dining and entertaining. A welcoming reception hall with bespoke oak cabinets opens to the sitting room with doors to the garden and to a newly fitted shower room. This space has been cleverly designed so that it can be closed off by using the bifold doors to provide a downstairs bedroom if needed. A spacious dining room provides plenty of character with fireplace and a large square bay window with window seats and doors to the courtyard. Two steps down from here lead to a cosy family snug area with fireplace and open beamed divider which separates it from the kitchen. Fitted by Beauport, the kitchen benefits from oak and quartz works surfaces, Farrow and Ball painted units, gas and induction hobs and two double ovens. In addition, there is a large wine cellar and shuttered French doors to the garden. A utility accessed from the hall completes the ground floor accommodation. On the first floor is a stylish master bedroom with walk in wardrobe cupboard, two further double bedrooms both with ensuite facilities, a fourth bedroom and bathroom which has a clawfoot bath. To the front and side of the property is a gravelled area with ample parking space for several cars. To the rear is a pretty, private garden with south west facing sun terrace, mature lawn and cottage borders, outdoor heated pool and summer house which could be used as a study. There is also a brick pool house and raised seating area, whilst to the rear boundary is a timber garage and access. Situation Sherwood Cottage is positioned along a quiet country lane in a peaceful hamlet of Lowlands just 2 miles from West Meon. There is easy access to the A272 and A32 linking to Winchester, Petersfield and Alton, each with mainline stations with regular fast services to Waterloo, extensive shopping and leisure facilities and a range of excellent state and private secondary schools. West Meon is a vibrant village with post office/general store, cafe, butcher, tennis courts and pub. The village primary school and preschool are a big draw to the village and there is biking, walking and riding throughout the Meon Valley and South Downs.
