The House
Accessed via a quiet country lane and gated drive offering off-street-parking for several vehicles, the original part of Monks Cottage dates from the early sixteenth century and was extended some before the seventeenth century. In modern times, the cottage has been the subject of significant yet sympathetic improvements, including the reconfiguration of the ground floor to include an open plan dining/sitting area with wonderful views of the garden, a modern well-equipped kitchen with high ceilings and exposed beams, a new home office, and a new roof. In addition to three beautiful double bedrooms and two bathrooms to the first floor, the cottage is characterised by its tremendous period character with notable features including solid flooring (thought to have been recycled from a retired fifteen century ship!), ornate timber staircase, stunning stained-glass windows and bread oven were saved and recycled from Winchester Cathedral by some very brave monks during the reformation. The original oak fireplace and back plate dated 1571 still in excellent working order for that cosy fire in the depths of winter. This really is a very special home of incredible character and history, the charms of which we have merely touched upon here.

The Gardens (Approx. 1 Acre)
The gardens at Monks Cottage are simply magnificent, enjoying total privacy and seclusion. The sweeping lawn surrounds the house and can be accessed from every direction, and each little area brings something unique to the unique to proceedings. Carefully cultivated beds of wildflowers shrubs and trees create a beautiful oasis of tranquillity, adorned, and frequented by a large bird population including nuthatches, tree creepers, a variety of tits, finches, woodpeckers, sparrows, wrens, black birds and thrushes. The established pond is home to a large shoal of coy carp and feeding time is one of the owners' favourite parts of the day! For adults and child adventurers alike the gardens at Monks Cottage are a paradise, providing wonderful entertaining space for those special family occasions. When night falls light the firepit and sit back and enjoy the stars.

The Annexe (Potential to create separate residential dwelling STPP) and Outbuildings
Sat discreetly adjacent to the parking area, the Annexe is a large detached two storey barn, currently access by large barn doors lead into a cavernous open plan space with a modern kitchen and bathroom, and a super mezzanine sleeping area/double bedroom, with skylights and high vault ceilings with exposed beams, this is a very special addition to Monks Cottage. Fulfilling various roles over the years from space for rebuilding classic cars, hosting parties and barn dances, teenager's hideaway, and rental/guest accommodation, The Annexe has always had a large part to play in life at the cottage. Across the parking area you will also find a timber-built parking port and for future refence, the perfect spot for an EV charger point.
