An older style property that was extended by the well-known Winchester architect, Huw Thomas, in 1984. The Rosery offers a generous amount of versatile living space, and is set on a lovely 1/3 acre plot in the middle of this popular village just five minutes' drive from Alresford. The house is approached via a long driveway, which leads to a parking area and a double garage, which has an up-and-over door. The striking front garden is laid out in a formal topiary design, and wrought-iron gates to the side of the house lead through to the secluded rear garden, which is laid to lawn, with two paved seating areas, a summer house, a couple of greenhouses, flower and shrub borders and is surrounded by hedging. The property is being sold with the benefit of no onward chain.
The front door opens to an entrance hall, with a cloakroom and stairs to the first floor. A door leads to the fitted kitchen and utility room, and beyond is the light and airy garden room, which has glazed French doors which open to the garden. The older part of the house has four similarly sized rooms comprising a sitting room, dining room, study/family room, and a bedroom with en-suite shower room.
Upstairs, there is a landing with airing and linen cupboards, and a loft access hatch. There are two double bedrooms, both with built-in wardrobes, a bathroom and shower room. A hallway 'bridge' leads through to a large double bedroom, which has its own walk-in dressing room.
