High Street, East Meon, Petersfield, Hampshire

Monthly Rental Of £2,250

Charming period 4 bedroom detached cottage in the heart of the highly sought after village of East Meon.

Dating from the 1690’s with later additions, the cottage is steeped in period character and charm and offers good family accommodation in a central village location.

Entered directly from the High Street, the entrance hall opens to a very pretty double aspect sitting room with magnificent, working inglenook fireplace and traditional beams. The beamed snug/playroom has the benefit of a wood burning stove set within the small inglenook. The kitchen/dining room, originally part of the adjoining outbuilding, has been well fitted with a range of units, including a practical and attractive island unit, and superb bi-fold doors opening to the south facing terrace and established rear garden. A small office, with electric underfloor heating, excellent recently fitted cloakroom with walk in shower and lean to for plants with adjacent W.C. completes the ground floor accommodation.

The cottage has three staircases. The main staircase leads to a charming landing with intriguing beams, two double bedrooms, with original wide oak/pine boards, and a contemporary bath/shower room. A second staircase leads to a double bedroom (with single skin external wall) while another leads to an ‘open’ double bedroom.

There is secondary glazing to most of the front (north facing) windows, an immersion heater, night storage heating (Economy 10) to most rooms in addition to the log burner, open working fireplace and underfloor heating in the office.

Outside, the south facing garden lies to the rear of the cottage with an attractive paved terrace and is imaginatively laid out on several levels with established plants, shrubs and trees and a small vegetable area. There is rear access on two sides to the neighbouring lanes. Street parking as available.

The Country House Company worked incredibly hard to secure us our dream house in Hambledon and we could not be more grateful. Kate was incredibly knowledgeable and open about the house and its history, the local area and the market. We were kept in the loop on communications with the vendor, we never needed to chase and felt that whilst the vendors wishes were communicated and respected our cause was similarly championed which ultimately resulted the best outcome for all. If and when we choose to sell our home, we won’t be going anywhere else. Our experience demonstrates that getting the right team on the case makes all the difference. Thank you Kate and the team at The Country House Company!
