A Stunning GII detached Period home in one of Hampshire's popular villages in the South Downs National Park.

With approximately 2 acres of gardens, orchard and paddock, this cottage is a very rare find indeed. With a range of outbuildings and barns, including a large gym/workout room and swimming pool the property forms a lovely family home with plenty of potential to be further improved.

The property was the headquarters of the Parliamentary forces at the Battle of Cheriton in 1644 and latterly home in late C18/early C19 to Field-Marshal Gomm, who fought at Waterloo.

The Cottage retains much of its inherent character, the accommodation is extremely well proportioned and is laid out over two floors plus a small wine cellar.

The entrance, which is at the rear of the property, is shaded by an old Box tree clipped to shape and has an oak front door opening into the flagstone floored Hall, which is panelled to full height.

From here the house opens to the right to the study which leads through to the family room, with heated oak parquet flooring, which opens in turn to the spacious conservatory and on to the patio and walled garden.

To the left from the hall, a passage leads to the kitchen/breakfast room, which has stone flooring, a mixture of hand painted and crafted walnut units, Italian marble worktops and Aga, a conventional oven and hob, as well as a Teppanyaki Hot plate set into the centre Island. From the kitchen there are steps leading up into the dining room, with panelled walls and arch curved doorways to the front garden and the drive. Also, off the kitchen is a laundry room, which opens back to the hall.

A secondary hall area sees the staircase rise to the first floor and leads to a beautifully proportioned living room, fireplace, stone surround and over mantel, and parquet floor, a charming bay window overlooks the garden.

Upstairs there are four well-proportioned bedrooms with good storage and a contemporary family bathroom and separate shower/wet room, with heated flooring and a stunning view from the window overlooking the lawn.

Externally the property is approached via a gravel drive which ends in a turning circle by the twin bay oak car port. The front garden is bordered by mature hedging and mainly laid to lawn. The gardens to the rear are extensive and begin with steps rising to a terraced patio area which in turn leads up to the walled garden. Wide brick steps rise to a further lawned area, an extensive vegetable garden, a small paddock and an Orchard. From the Orchard a private track connects the property via a gate to a right of way leading to the main road.

The property possesses a wide range of barns, workshops and stores and former agricultural buildings. Some of these are in need of renovation, others function as entertainment rooms and an above surface swimming pool has been installed in a private and sunny area, surrounded by tiered decking.

The property further benefits from a gym, with a mirrored wall and soft flooring, which is large enough to host multiple users and adjoins the swimming pool area.
