This delightful cottage and barn can be found in the most idyllic setting in Corhampton Down. Nestling amongst mature trees and yet with open views to the west, Shellets is in a particularly secluded spot. The generously proportioned principal reception room serves as a sitting, dining room and study and features a wood burning stove, attractive lattice windows and oak flooring. The kitchen has lovely views over the garden and towards fields. The garden room, likewise, is both light and enjoys the immediate surroundings because of the extensive expanse of window.
On the first floor, two double bedrooms and a single bedroom, with decent ceiling heights, are served by a bathroom which can be accessed from the principal bedroom too. There are also some attractive beams visible on this floor.
The gardens are a total delight with various enclaves, colourful plants, mature trees and to the west in particular, lovely views. There are brick built sheds and some hard standing for a vehicle.
Across Lone Barn Lane is Shellets Barn, a predominantly brick and flint, single storey building sitting amongst a most attractive orchard. There is also a substantial wooden outbuilding used for storage currently. The Barn comprises a vaulted principal room with mezzanine level over the kitchenette and shower room. The Barn has recently been classed as 'residential' in planning terms and so could be utilised more fully as an annex or let to provide an income.
We understand that modest extensions to both Shellets and Shellets Barn could be possible but we would urge interested parties to make their own enquiries to the planning departments.
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!View all testimonials
