Manor Cottage is situated in a truly rural spot within the sought after Meon Valley and offers a wealth of character and charm, including beamed ceilings and fireplaces. Built with brick and flint elevations, the original part of the cottage dates back some 400 years with later extensions, creating a wonderful home. Situated about a mile or so outside of Hambledon village and surrounded by beautiful countryside, the property offers excellent family accommodation and set within delightful gardens.
On the ground floor there is a charming entrance hall with a quarry tiled floor, which leads to a cosy snug with an open hearth fireplace. The spacious dining room has French doors out to the front garden with a triple aspect providing plenty of light. There is a useful utility area leading to the country style kitchen with a Rayburn oven and butler sink. From the kitchen there is a generous sitting room with a charming window seat overlooking the rear garden and a log burning stove. A superbly fitted bathroom with roll top bath and separate shower completes the ground floor. On the first floor there are three double bedrooms. The large master bedroom suite enjoys an en-suite cloakroom and views over the gardens.
Externally the cottage is approached via a gravel driveway. The gardens wrap around the property and are mainly laid to lawn with mature trees and shrub borders, along with an open barn style storage shed. This could be converted into stables, subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents. Beyond the gardens there is a further large paddock.
Hoe Street is a rural country lane, approximately a mile from the village of Hambledon. The village boasts a shop and public house, with schools at nearby Droxford and Denmead. There are more comprehensive shopping, leisure and schooling facilities available at Waterlooville to the south, whilst to the north west, the market town of Petersfield has a mainline railway station, with trains from Petersfield to London Waterloo taking around an hour.

Petersfield often features on lists of the best places to live and work and was recently voted one of the top 10 most desirable market towns in England; The Guardian went so far as to describe Petersfield as ‘a commuter’s Nirvana, the urban equivalent of a foot rub and a G&T’.We have a delightful choice of properties in the area, from beautiful character cottages, some dating back 500 years, to coach house style homes and large rural retreats to modern family homes. There’s also a thriving rental market here as the convenient location, attractive setting and abundant facilities make this an excellent base for those working in the wider area or simply wanting a perfect place to raise a family.
