About the property

A delightful part thatched, part tiled cottage, presented in very good order throughout but still retaining much of its original charm and character. The original part of the cottage we believe dates back to the 17th century and was extended in the 1930's to form the four bedroom house that it is today. In recent years the current vendor has carried out improvements to include new windows in 2011, new facias, soffits and guttering in 2019, new boiler in 2021, new septic tank in 2022 and replaced the thatched roof in 2014. The ground floor also provides three main reception rooms together with cloakroom/utility and kitchen. The cottage sits within a delightful plot of approximately 0.31 of an acre with a pleasant outlook over the adjacent water meadows. Highbridge is conveniently situated within 10 minutes of the centre of Chandlers Ford, Eastleigh and Winchester as well as easy access to the M3, M27, main line railway stations and Southampton airport.
