A charming 16th century Grade II listed cottage located in the heart of Tichborne, with the benefit of a self-contained annexe building at the end of the garden, offering the possibility of multi-generational living, or an ideal space for working from home. The property is offered for sale with the benefit of no onward chain. Tichborne is a very quiet hamlet, located within the scenic South Downs National Park. The village dates back to Saxon times and the current environment is one of relaxation and leisure with access to The Itchen Way or Wayfarers Walk in close proximity. It is a popular cycling, horse riding and rambling route, with a popular pub, The Tichborne Arms, just up the road. The tradition of distributing "The Dole" continues to this day on Lady Day (25th March), wherein Tichborne Manor distributes a gallon of flour to each resident of Tichborne and Cheriton. The ground floor accommodation in the main cottage comprises an entrance hall, a cloakroom with shower, a kitchen/dining room featuring a well in the floor with a glass cover, and French doors to the garden, a sitting room with wood-burning stove, and a family room. The first floor accommodation is accessed via two separate staircases. At one end of the cottage is the main bedroom, which includes an en-suite with a free-standing bath. At the other end of the property are two further bedrooms. The detached annexe in the garden fronts onto the lane running through Tichborne, with its own parking space. The downstairs accommodation comprises an entrance lobby, a generous sitting room and separate dining room, a kitchenette and shower room. Upstairs, there is a bedroom in the eaves, a bathroom and separate cloakroom. The southerly-facing garden enjoys a good deal of privacy and seclusion, and is a bit of a blank canvas being simply laid to lawn with a paved seating area and path to the lane. Tichborne is located in between Alresford and the larger village of Cheriton. It is off the beaten track with little passing traffic, but is conveniently located just 5 minutes' drive from Alresford, where there is a range of independent shops and traders, and about 15 minutes from Winchester, where there is a more extensive range of shops and facilities.
