This handsome, individual and generously proportioned detached house has all the qualities a family looks for, with large bedrooms, fantastic reception spaces, and plenty of natural light. There are many practical areas too, including a utility room, dressing room and a vast amount of thoughtful built-in storage. The property has been beautifully maintained and updated, with replacement sash windows throughout, adding to the charm, and with a state of the art nest heating system and a wired broadband internal network.
The property boasts ample parking, a lovely garden and is beautifully positioned just moments away from Bursledon Railway Station allowing for excellent access into Southampton and Portsmouth without the need for the car for work or leisure.
The house has been significantly extended in recent years, with the original part of the house believed to have origins back to the mid 1700s when it was built as a ship-builders cottage. The extension has produced a marvellous, bright open-plan kitchen/dining and family room.
All-in-all this is a very special, comfortable, family home, bursting with character and with neat design ideas, and very well positioned to enjoy all that this lovely area has to offer.
On the ground floor the warm, welcoming entrance hall is centrally positioned to the original cottage and first gives access to two rooms at the front of the house; the play room/sitting room on one side with built in play house, and a reception hall or music room with working fireplace on the other. Moving towards the rear of the house one passes a welcoming snug, a modern W.C. And large utility room with butler sink, a vast amount of cupboard space as well as space for washing machine and tumble dryer. To one side is the newest part of the house, entirely given over to a magnificent open-plan room with kitchen/dining area and a sitting room area with contemporary log-burner beyond. This impressive room is the real heart of the home over; 10 metres across and benefitting from high vaulted ceilings and electric Velux windows. Double doors seamlessly connect the family room to the patio area, making it perfect for summer entertaining on a grand scale. The high quality kitchen includes a large island/breakfast bar for more intimate gatherings and there are ample eye-level and base units arranged along the wall with top-notch integrated appliances. These include an aga with 6 ring gas hob, neff dishwasher, Samsung Fridge/Freezer and wine chiller. The dining area includes a large corner window seat with built in storage.
On the first floor the landing gives access to two double bedrooms, and family bathroom with large oval bath and double walk-in rainfall shower, all displaying the same level of attention to detail employed on the ground floor. The master bedroom in particular is lovely and large, beautifully designed with walk-in dressing room and integrated wardrobes. Bedroom two has an en-suite shower room with double rainfall shower.
Up on the second floor are a further two double bedrooms both with sky lights, integrated storage and useful eaves storage either side of the bedrooms.
The garden is a delight - very private, it has been landscaped and designed to be easily an integral part of the experience of the house. It is divided into two distinct sections with a large patio area outside the kitchen, perfect for entertaining and summer dining, and there is a gate out to the private area of parking here. The other part of the garden includes another patio, a large shed to the side of the house and an area of lawn with raised shrub borders well-stocked with a variety of mature shrubs and plants.
The house is nicely set back opposite Bursledon Railways station, and very private behind fences and hedges. An attractive Lych gate set within the hedge leads through to the garden and then the house beyond. As well as the private parking area there is ample free parking in the station car park.
The location is superb; the house is very close to the marinas and boatyards on the river Hamble at Bursledon so the house would be perfect for those with a strong connection to boating and water activities. There are lovely walks all around the area.

There are many leisure and boating facilities almost right on the doorstep and local shops near the marinas and boatyards and in nearby Lowford, including a Tesco Superstore. The area has many great pubs including the 18th century Jolly Sailor, The Old Ship, The Navigator and the Fox and Hounds.
