Rarely does an opportunity arise to acquire such a picturesque cottage, locally listed as a house of local historic interest with origins dating back to 1840-1850. October Cottage is truly exceptional with its exterior elevations and interior structure being quite striking. The accommodation extends to 1600 sq ft and offers beautifully presented accommodation with a wealth of character features retained. There are three reception rooms in total, both the Study and Sitting Room benefit from log burning stoves, whilst the Dining Room is open to the kitchen. The kitchen has a range of painted wooden cupboards with granite worktops and butler’s sink and a range of integral appliances. The adjacent utility room is impressive with feature brick fireplace, ample cupboards with marble drainer and extensive storage cupboards. Upstairs are three bedrooms, all are of double proportions with stripped wooden flooring and cast iron fireplaces. The master bedroom benefits from built in wardrobe cupboards and an ensuite shower room. In addition, the family bathroom is stunning with period style fittings including a free standing bath, again stripped wooden flooring and a cast iron fireplace. Outside, the gardens are a particular feature of the property having been lovingly landscaped by my clients during their 16 years of ownership. To the front, flanking the cottage is driveway parking and a single car port. Gates either side leads to the stunning south facing gardens which are laid to lawn with a flagstone terrace immediately adjacent to the rear of the cottage, feature pond, many specimen trees including apple, cherry and copper beech and a greenhouse. A brick path meanders down the garden with pergolas, well stocked shrub beds, leading to a substantial summer house. Cleverly concealed with hedgerow is a large shed, workshop and compost and wood store areas.

Warsash is a charming maritime village which is home to the Hook Nature Reserve, a 500-acre inter-tidal area and is also one of the most popular centres for sailing enthusiasts on the South Coast with a well subscribed Yacht Club and the Royal Southern and Royal Southampton Yacht Clubs nearby. There are links to Hamble Village via a ferry for pedestrians and cyclists where you can access the Royal Victoria Country Park.

The centres of Southampton and Portsmouth are approximately 9 and 14 miles away respectively and both offer excellent shopping facilities. Junction 8 of the M27 links to the M3 for London and the Cathedral City of Winchester.
