Crimble’s Cottage, is a delightful, attached period cottage, believed to date from the late 16th Century enjoying an excellent position within the Conservation Area overlooking the village pond. The property is recorded on the local list of buildings of architectural or historical interest and retains much of its original character with a wealth of exposed timbers and beams throughout, although unlike many period cottages, the ceiling height is generally very good.
On the ground floor the front porch opens to the central dining hall from which the staircase rises to the first floor. To one side is the dual aspect sitting room, and to the other is the kitchen/breakfast room which leads to the family room beyond. All of these rooms are heavily beamed and both the sitting room and family room have brick fireplaces with log burning stoves. There is a rear hall giving access to the rear garden with a cloakroom off.
On the first floor there are four double bedrooms, all heavily beamed, the family bathroom and a shower room.
There is a detached brick build double garage with parking in front of it located to the rear of the cottage, accessed from the side.
The garden lies to the rear and to one side of the property. This is level and fully enclosed by a combination of fencing and hedging and is laid primarily to lawn with flower and shrub beds and borders and a gravelled terrace. Garden shed.
The property is situated in the centre of Oakley, a popular village on the Western edge of Basingstoke. The village provides facilities catering for all day to day requirements, including a popular village school, shop, public house, tennis courts, church and dentist and doctors surgeries. Nearby Basingstoke provides a far more extensive range of leisure, recreational and education facilities. Commuting is excellent with access to the mainline railway station at Basingstoke providing fast and frequent services to London Waterloo and the M3 can be accessed at Junction 6 & 7.
