This 2 double bedroom character home has a stunning dual aspect kitchen/dining room with integrated appliances and a cosy living room with woodburning stove. There is a good size garden to the rear whilst the front of the property has seasonal views across the A31 to farmland diagonally opposite. New electric heating and cavity wall insulation are also included.
Standing well back from the road behind a tree studded green, the cottage is in Ropley Dene, part of the parish of Ropley village. The immediate surroundings include properties of varying ages, sizes and types on the same side of the A31. In the best traditions, Ropley has a well conserved village centre which incorporates a primary school, shop and post office, Church of St Peter, unique coffee/meeting room, village hall and sports field, and an ecclectic mix of sports and interest clubs and a programme of events. Footpaths and bridleways traverse the surrounding countryside with the serene valley of the River Itchen to the West. The major centres of Alton, Petersfield and Winchester have High Street shops, state and private schools, colleges, commuter trains to London Waterloo and golf courses, whilst Alresford, 3 miles away, has a landmark Broad Street, useful shops, Perins Academy senior school and annual agricultural shows and watercress festivals in September and May respectively.
