A stunning modernised Grade II listed detached cottage, with origins dating back to the early 1700’s set within private grounds of just under half of an acre with private gated access. The property is presented in first class order with a detached barn style garage and ample parking. Epr: N/A
The property is located in the heart of the village where there is a general store with Post Office and is complimented by a selection of other shops, pubs and an extensive leisure centre while schools for all age groups are all within walking distance. Approximately 1½ miles west is the picturesque Georgian market town of Lymington which is famed for its attractive High Street, river, marinas and yacht clubs. The town offers an excellent range of schooling, both state and private, catering for all ages. There is a useful branch line rail connection that links with the neighbouring village of Brockenhurst (situated approximately 6 miles to the north) that in turn has an efficient mainline railway station (London Waterloo approximately 90 minutes) and its own tertiary college.
The property dates back to the 1700’s and holds a Grade 11 listing. Originally the property was four cottages and in the past few years has been completely refurbished to its current standard with a carefully thought out landscaped garden and the addition of a timber framed double garage. The thatch, flashings, chimney breasts, pointing and roof structure have all been upgraded with the addition of a beautiful bespoke kitchen with Gaggenau appliances and cat 5 & 6 cabling throughout.
The lounge is truly impressive with a walk in fireplace, panelled walls, exposed beams and wood floors. This spacious room has twin aspect, the front overlooking the pond and water features and the rear overlooking the orchard. The ground floor continues with a double bedroom, separate cloakroom and private office.
Rising the stairs you are greeted by the quality and craftmanship that flows through the entire home. The landing has a double guest suite with sumptuous bathroom separated from the rest of the first floor accommodation. There are two further bedrooms, with the master being a large, light room with white washed floors and tremendous views to the grounds and a separate en-suite with shower and bath.
Overall The Long Thatch is one of the hidden gems of the village, tucked away in a private location almost invisible from the road, yet within a stone’s throw of all local amenities. It is possibly one of the most characterful homes in the area.
Newly landscaped gardens wrap around the property on three sides and are enclosed with mature planting and fencing. There is lovely pond which rests in the gardens with marble well and marble topped barbecue, and the remaining grounds are mainly laid to lawn. There is currently a lean-to conservatory style structure which could be adopted into an orangery. An outhouse has been refurbished to serve purpose as a utility room but could easily become a home office or studio should someone wish to convert this space. Substantial parking on the wide gravel drive leads to a newly constructed wooden garage and open car port with concrete floor, tiled roof. There is also a secure bike store and open wood store.
