Agents Comments

“A character cottage occupying a generous plot extending to a third of an acre offering UPVC double glazing, oil fired central heating and private drainage.”


The accommodation is well proportioned with many of the rooms enjoying dual aspects and scope to extend if required, subject to the usual planning consents. Positioned just off the A3057, Lower Brook is nestled between Kimbridge and Horsebridge, a couple of miles from King's Somborne. There is a useful parking area in front of the double timber gates which screen the gardens from passing traffic and further parking is available on the driveway with a single garage/workshop. The charming village of King's Somborne offers schooling, a public house, shops and is ideally situated for easy access to Romsey, Stockbridge and the Cathedral City of Winchester.


A pitched front entrance porch with double glazed French doors and attractive stained glass precedes the composite inner door opening to the open plan sitting and dining room. The dual aspect sitting room features a coal effect electric fire with ornate surround and fitted corner shelving adjacent. Sliding patio doors open to the part brick conservatory with access to the mature gardens. The spacious dining room is open to the sitting room and houses the stairs to the first floor with storage space under hand crafted balustrades. The kitchen breakfast room comfortably accommodates a dining suite and features an ornamental red brick fireplace. A range of beech effect wall and base units provide extensive storage complemented by granite effect roll top work surfaces. The oil fired boiler is situated in the corner of the room with space for a cooker, plumbing for a slim line dishwasher and space for a fridge freezer. A useful cloakroom is accessed from the kitchen with a rear door to the garden and external utility room offering additional storage space and plumbing for white goods. The first floor landing hosts a small fitted cupboard and shelved linen cupboard with access to the part boarded loft space via a hatch and ladder. The master bedroom enjoys light from a dual aspect and is fitted with a range of built in wardrobes. Bedrooms two and three are well proportioned and served by the family bathroom comprising a white suite with panelled bath and mixer shower over, wash basin, WC and heated towel rail.


At the front of the property is a useful parking bay with double timber gates opening into a further parking area fronting the detached single garage/workshop with remote roller door, power and light. The beautiful mature gardens extend to a third of an acre, a real delight for keen gardeners, set against a hillside back drop, rich with a variety of mature trees. The undulating and well tended lawn is flanked by borders brimming with colourful flora and fauna. A vegetable garden is situated next to the cottage with a pedestrian gate at the front of the property.


Wonderfully positioned against a hillside of colourful mature trees and screened from the main thoroughfare with recently replaced fencing, Heron Cottage sits within the delightful hamlet of Lower Brook, a short drive from King's Somborne where local amenities can be found. Lying in the valley of the edge of the River Test surrounded by wonderful countryside, King's Sombone is perfect for peaceful scenic walks and cycle rides. Typical village amenities include a post office, reputable local schooling, church, public house and village shops. The cultural cities of Winchester and Salisbury are within close proximity and the nearby market towns of Stockbridge and Romsey both offer a wide range of facilities including boutique shops and restaurants. Rail links can be found at Andover, Romsey and Winchester.


From Romsey take the A3057 to Stockbridge for approximately four miles signed posted Lower Brook where the property can be found a short distance on the right hand side.
