A charming Grade II listed cottage set in a tranquil location in the middle of the village close to the village green and River Itchen. Cheriton is surrounded by beautiful countryside with a choice of dog walks and The Flower Pots Inn just 5 minutes' walk away. No onward chain.

The cottage is believed to date from circa 1800 and retains many original character features including inglenook fireplaces, exposed beams and wooden doors with latches. The property was extended in 2007 to create additional living space on the ground and first floors. There is driveway parking for two cars and a pretty front garden surrounded by a hedge, with a path leading to a low-maintenance courtyard garden to the rear of the cottage.

The front door opens into the sitting room, where there is a large inglenook fireplace with a wood burning stove, window overlooking the garden and stairs to the first floor. A door leads through to the dining room, which features another inglenook fireplace (currently sealed up but which could be opened up again), a storage cupboard and understairs storage. An opening leads to the kitchen/breakfast room, which has a range of kitchen units and worktops and French doors to the rear courtyard garden. Off the dining room is a utility room and cloakroom.

Upstairs, there is a linen cupboard on the landing, and a shower room with a white suite and Velux window. The main bedroom is a double room with a cast iron fireplace and alcove storage cupboards. The second bedroom is also a double room, with a vaulted ceiling and window overlooking the green and river.
