With a modern converted stable barn offered as an annexe, this impressive listing offers a unique blend of period character and charm with modern living throughout. Located in the heart of the village of Fyfield, The Old Rectory Cottage occupies a good-sized plot with the oldest part of the property, part of the original rectory, dating back to the Georgian era. The current owners have extended the property to a substantial degree providing accommodation that is generous throughout.
As a whole, the cottage itself comprises a farmhouse style kitchen, a cloakroom off a hallway that leads to a large, light and airy double aspect sitting room with French doors to the rear along with open access to a traditional dining room. The ground floor of the cottage continues to flow with a door off of the sitting room allowing access to the extended portion of the property which includes an office, utility room and second hallway from which the large double garage and workshop can be accessed. Stairs lead to the first floor from the first hallway and provide access to three bedrooms, one with an ensuite shower room plus the family bathroom. There are stairs to the first floor accessed from either hallway. A second staircase accesses the first floor from the extended side of the property and gives access to a further bedroom with ensuite shower room and a very impressive Games Room. The enclosed south facing rear garden is a true “Cottage Garden” and offers an overriding feeling of tranquillity. A brick paved patio gives way to delightful mature shrubs and flowers in borders surrounding an attractive lawn. As well as a greenhouse and two traditional garden sheds there is an intriguing shed built into the cob wall on one side of the garden.
Providing generous parking, a gravel driveway separates the Cottage itself from the Barn Annexe which was converted from a derelict and long since used stable barn. The current owners have sympathetically converted the barn into a modern and characterful dwelling which offers a spacious ground floor sitting room, open-plan kitchen and dining area plus a cloakroom and a utility room. The first floor provides three bedrooms and a bathroom which includes an inviting roll top bath as well as a modern shower cubicle. The Barn Annexe also has a large attached garage with power and light and has the bonus of planning consent for holiday letting so could provide a healthy income.
The village of Fyfield can be found just three miles west of Andover which offers a range of shopping, educational and recreational facilities including a college of further education, a cinema, theatre and leisure centre. The mainline railway station runs a direct line to London's Waterloo in just over an hour whilst the A303 offers good road access to both London and the West Country.
