Coachman's Cottage forms part of a conversion from the original Preshaw Estate and comprises one of a number of cottages and farm outbuildings, which were stylishly and imaginatively converted in 1994. The hamlet of Preshaw is located within the delightful countryside of the Meon Valley and is within the South Downs National Park. The small group of properties sits within view of the large Preshaw Country house, and is surrounded by the fields and woods of this large shooting and farming estate. The impressive approach is down a mile long part tree-lined driveway with stunning views across the open surrounding countryside. Coachman's Cottage is situated next to the chapel, which is still used.

The front door opens to a lobby and into the study, which is open plan to the dining room, divided by a large brick fireplace with a wood burning stove. Beyond the dining room is the very comfortable sitting room, which has a full height vaulted ceiling with exposed beams giving a superb feeling of character. French doors lead to outside. An opening from the dining room leads through to the fitted kitchen, which in turn leads to a lovely sun room/conservatory, which faces south and enjoys views of the garden. On the first floor there are three double bedrooms and a family bathroom. Bedroom three also has an en suite shower room.

Pretty gardens surround the property and it is bordered by a beech hedge which gives excellent privacy. The garden is mainly laid to lawn interspersed with shrub and herbaceous borders and it is predominantly south and east facing. There is also a stone terrace area. There is a former garage which is now used for storage. Subject to any necessary planning this could be used as a home office should somebody wish to do so.

A small picket gate leads out to the generous parking area which is owned by the property and provides parking for up to three vehicles. Additional visitor parking is available nearby. For those working from home, high speed broadband 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.
