Instantly recognisable

This beautiful Grade II listed thatched cottage enjoys a picturesque setting in the heart of the village of Kings Somborne. Believed to date back to the mid-16th century, the property is steeped in character, with exposed beams in most of the rooms, and has stunning views over water meadows and countryside beyond.

Something of a landmark, the cottage is instantly recognisable with its distinctive clipped yew tree at the front.

The superb reception hall sits centrally and provides spacious circulation space with the sitting room leading off on one side, with a wood burning stove, and the dining room on the other which has an open fire and double doors through to a conservatory. The kitchen is well fitted and also connects with the conservatory.

Three double bedrooms radiate from the first floor landing and share the smart family bathroom with its roll top bath, and there is also a shower room on the ground floor.

Yew Tree House sits in gardens approaching a quarter of an acre which are mainly lawned for ease of maintenance, screened by mature hedging and with planted borders for interest. A fabulous studio or office sits within the garden which has a kitchenette, living area, shower room and a mezzanine sleeping deck. Off road parking is provided together with a single garage.

Kings Somborne is a charming village which lies on the edge of the Test Valley. The community benefits from a primary school, general store, post office, church, village hall and public house with a wider range of amenities found in Stockbridge, about three miles away.
