The Property:

Set back from the road behind a gate which provides an excellent degree of privacy, this pretty red brick Edwardian cottage has recessed casement windows under a slate tiled roof. The accommodation is a traditional 'two up two down' arrangement accessed from a welcoming entrance porch. There is a sitting room to the front aspect with an open fireplace and a kitchen/dining room with a stylish bright red AGA. A rear lobby opens to a useful downstairs cloakroom. The first floor accommodates two bedrooms and a bathroom with views to the front and rear aspect and benefits from remarkably high ceilings. The property also has a boarded loft space. The rear gardens are larger than average and are simply stunning. Arranged into sections with a courtyard directly behind the cottage that links the workshop (which offers scope to covert into a home office) and further gardens which are mainly laid to lawn with flower and shrub borders and are a 'sea of colour' as well as having several fruit trees including a Medlar from which the cottage takes its name. The gardens are extremely private and benefit from a working water pump and well to the front, and an ornamental pond, garden shed and greenhouse to the rear.

The Location:

Located in the heart of this popular Test Valley village which has a good range of amenities including a pub, two shops, a Post Office, primary school and Church, as well as being surrounded by unspoilt countryside and walks by chalk streams. It also offers easy access to the nearby City of Winchester (15 minutes' drive) for a greater range of facilities and mainline railway connections to London, as well as being just under three miles from the popular Stockbridge high street which also has a wider range of amenities.

Directions:

From Winchester take the A30 Stockbridge Road proceeding past Sparsholt College taking the next left, sign posted Kings Somborne. Enter the village and turn left at the Post Office T-junction into Church Road. Continue up the hill and onto Furzedown Road where 'Medlar Cottage' will be found on the left-hand side, identified by our 'For Sale' board, just opposite the turning for Old Palace Farm.
