This 17th century thatched cottage occupies a semi-rural location with a very pretty English country garden in Nutbourne.
The property, in Inlands Road, is Grade II listed and has a wealth of period features including wall and ceiling beams, two inglenook fireplaces, one with a good bread oven, oak flooring and a newly re-thatched roof.
In the kitchen is a panel of original, what appears to be Tudor wall-painting, and the master bedroom has a 17th century carved door.
The house has flexible and adaptable accommodation with a part-galleried inner hallway leading to a beautiful and well-proportioned drawing room with heavy beams and a magnificent inglenook fireplace with enamelled wood-burning stove, a beamed dining room with inglenook fireplace with open fire and bread oven, fitted kitchen, ground floor study which could easily double as a fourth bedroom, main bathroom, utility room and store room.
On the first floor there are three generous bedrooms – the master has a 17th century carved door and ancient wall panelling – and a shower room.
The house has a very pretty English country garden with a wide array of traditional herbaceous plants in beds and borders including a mature herb garden and a vine-clad pergola.
Beyond this lies a separate fruit and vegetable garden.
Additionally there is a large timber workshop, and on the south side of the house is a lovely York stone terrace and well.
At the front there is parking for two cars.
