  • Bedrooms: 5
A charming, detached house located in an idyllic setting within the South Downs National Park, with easy access to Winchester. Lower Chilland Lane is a quiet no-through road; a path at the end of the lane leads to a footbridge over the beautiful River Itchen, from where there is a lovely walk to the neighbouring village of Easton, where there are two well-known pubs.

Lower Chilland Cottage sits in a tranquil position on the lane, close to a footpath to Martyr Worthy and another to Itchen Abbas. It has a southerly-facing, landscaped garden, which is surrounded by hedging, giving it a high degree of seclusion and privacy. A five-bar gate opens onto the driveway, where there is garage and enough space to park a number of cars. The garden wraps around the house, and offers a choice of paved areas for relaxation, a raised pond, and shrub borders surrounding the lawn.

Inside the house, the accommodation comprises an entrance hall, a sitting room with a wood-burning stove, which leads through to the dining room, from where doors open to the lofty garden room/conservatory. An inner hall leads through to a sizeable drawing room, which has a wood-burning stove with twin sets of French doors opening to the garden. There is a fitted kitchen, breakfast room and further dining area, as well as a utility room and cloakroom.

The first floor landing is large enough to provide for a study area. Off the landing, there are three double bedrooms, all having built-in wardrobes and two having en-suites. In addition, there is a single bedroom and family bathroom. A spiral staircase leads up to two rooms built in the loft.

The villages of Chilland and Martyr Worthy are located between Itchen Abbas and Winchester and have good access to the M3 and the A34 for London, the South Coast and the Midlands. There is direct rail access to London from Winchester station, which is about 10-12 minutes' drive away.
