Built in 1916 reputedly as one of a pair of cottages for the gardener and chauffer of 'Orient Lodge', this charming cottage was sympathetically extended and modernised by the current owners in the early 1990's. The property is set back from the road, accessed via a driveway shared only with next door, which leads to its own private parking. Externally this property has a rendered façade and pretty multipaned casement windows which sit under a tiled roof. Internally the cottage has simple plain architraves and pine panelled doors. The study/family room enjoys the front aspect, as does the sitting room which has an open fireplace. Beyond this room is the kitchen which is fitted with a range of cream shaker style units and the adjacent dining room which has French doors opening into the garden. The inner hallway has a wide staircase rising to the first floor with cupboard below and the lobby has a stable door opening to the rear garden. The first floor has three double bedrooms, the largest having a rear aspect and an alcove which has the potential for an en-suite. There is also a well-proportioned bathroom and a large walk-in storage cupboard. To the front of the property there is off-road parking for several vehicles and the rear garden measures in excess of 140ft and is enclosed by mature hedging, mainly laid to lawn with two apple trees and two garden sheds.
A broad range of buyers are drawn to Littleton and it has long been regarded as a top village location close to Winchester. This is due to the thriving community and pretty Church, recreation centre with village hall, bowls, cricket, football and tennis clubs. The Running Horse Public House is situated a short walk away. Excellent shopping facilities exist on Stockbridge Road where there is a Waitrose store, as well as smaller retailers and Friarsgate Doctor's Surgery. Primary schooling at Sparsholt, Henry Beaufort & Westgate Secondary schools and Peter Symonds Sixth Form College are within easy reach. There are also excellent transport links to London by train or road and Southampton International Airport, with the South Coast nearby for sailing, and excellent local access to open countryside for walking, cycling and riding.
Leave the City via Stockbridge Road, continuing straight over at the Chilbolton Avenue roundabout. Just past Harestock Road (on the right), turn right into Main Road and pass the junction with Kennel Lane. As the road begins to slope downhill the property will be found on the left-hand side.
