  • Bedrooms: 3
A pretty brick and flint cottage set on the stunning Preshaw Estate. 1 Dairy Cottages comprises one of a number of cottages, which were stylishly and imaginatively converted in 1994 from farm buildings on the estate. The hamlet of Preshaw is situated within the delightful countryside of the Meon Valley and is located in the heart of the beautiful South Downs National Park. The cluster of converted cottages is surrounded by the fields and woods of this large shooting and farming estate. The impressive approach is down a mile-long, tree-lined driveway with stunning views across the open surrounding countryside. The property is in need of modernisation and is offered with no onward chain. We understand that high speed broadband is available.

The property is approached from the parking area via a gate, with a pathway leading to the front door. There is an entrance hall with stairs to the first floor. A door leads off to the spacious sitting room, which has a fireplace, a built-in cupboard and window overlooking the front garden. On the other side of the hall is the family room, which has a fireplace with a wood-burning stove and hearth, and windows to the front and side. A couple of steps lead up to a rear lobby, where there is a cloakroom and door to the rear garden. A door from the lobby leads through to the dining room, which is open-plan to the kitchen, which has a range of fitted kitchen units and worktops.

From the first floor landing, a door opens to the main bedroom, which is at the front of the cottage and has a built-in wardrobe and views of the parkland. The second bedroom is also at the front of the cottage, with a double wardrobe and views of the garden. The third bedroom is at the rear of the property and has a built-in wardrobe and window to the side. The bathroom has a white suite comprising a bath, wc, wash hand basin and cupboard housing the hot water cylinder.

Outside, the main garden is at the front of the cottage and is laid to lawn with hedging and fencing to the sides. There is a low-maintenance courtyard garden to the rear, that is accessed via a gate to the side of the cottage. There is parking for two cars and a garage in a block nearby, where additional visitor parking is available. There is easy access from the doorstep to The Monarch's Way, a beautiful long distance path, which passes Preshaw to the south.

The cathedral city of Winchester is about 8 miles away, and Petersfield 14 miles to the east, both offering main line railway stations with services to London Waterloo (approximately 1 hour) together with a comprehensive range of retail, cultural and educational amenities. The market town of Bishops Waltham lies within about 5 miles with a range of local shops and restaurants. The M3 motorway (J9) is about 6 miles away, enabling direct road access to central London and the M27 to the South.
