The Country House Company is delighted to be handling the sale of Sherwood Cottage situated at the edge of West Meon in Hampshire.
Built for the local gamekeeper circa 250 years or so ago, this pretty cottage has been sympathetically extended in recent years to offer spacious and versatile family accommodation. Overlooking open fields and set in well laid out mature gardens the cottage is in a small hamlet at the edge of West Meon.
This attractive brick and flint extended cottage retains a delightful cottage atmosphere incorporating many of the original features yet with contemporary fittings throughout.
The beamed ceiling entrance hall incorporates handmade oak cupboards and opens onto a large family room with bespoke bookcases and French doors that open to the patio and garden. Adjoining this is a newly fitted shower room with underfloor heating. This area can be closed off with the bi-fold doors to offer an en suite guest room, fifth bedroom or small granny annexe. To the side of the hall is a utility room with butlers sink, oak work surfaces and space for appliances.

The triple aspect kitchen is fitted to a high specification with oak and quartz work surfaces and Farrow & Ball painted units, gas hob and induction hob, two ovens, plenty of room for dining and shuttered French doors to the patio and garden. The kitchen provides access to a large wine cellar.
On the first floor the master bedroom is a spacious, quadruple aspect room with shuttered windows and walk in closet.

There is one en suite shower room, one en suite bathroom with shower over and a family bathroom all updated with contemporary fittings and underfloor heating.
