A charming three/four bedroom detached period cottage, situated in the sought after village of East Meon, offering a wonderful opportunity to be updated and modernised throughout. Originally two labourers cottages and dates back to the early 1800's, Bottle Cottage is so named because of a bottle-end in the flint wall at the front of the house.
Arranged over two floors the accommodation comprises an entrance porch leading in to the dining area with the kitchen to one side and the well-proportioned sitting room to the other, with a log burning stove and a wealth of character features. This leads to a ground floor shower room and study/bedroom four.
To the first floor the master bedroom is dual aspect with an en suite bathroom and built in wardrobes, along with access to a useful storage loft that runs the length of the outbuildings, bedroom two has a built in wardrobe and overlooks the rear garden, bedroom three faces north and has a small built in cupboard.
The cottage is approached via a double wooden gate through to a driveway, leading to a single garage. There are various outbuildings adjoining the property, which could be converted subject to necessary planning permission/consent. The attractive rear garden has a raised lawn with mature flower and shrub borders along with a pond, patio area and an attached sun room.
Located in the South Downs National Park, East Meon is a picturesque small village, the highest in the Meon Valley, with the River Meon running alongside the village street. The village has a 12th century church, Tudor and Georgian houses and 14th century cottages in the centre. The village has a thriving community, with two public houses, primary school and village shop. The nearby market town of Petersfield offers a comprehensive range of shopping, sporting and leisure facilities and there is a main line railway station providing a regular service from Portsmouth to London Waterloo.

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.
