SITUATION

April Cottage enjoys a central position in the Conservation Area in the heart of the village overlooking the green. Sherborne St John is a popular village situated just to the north of Basingstoke. The village itself has a primary school, church and public house, whilst Basingstoke itself offers a far more extensive range of leisure, recreational and educational facilities. Commuting is excellent with easy access to the M3 via junction 6, and the mainline railway station in Basingstoke provides fast and frequent services to London Waterloo.

THE PROPERTY

April Cottage is an attractive detached thatched cottage believed to date from the 17th Century, retaining much of its original character with a wealth of exposed ceiling and wall beams, an inglenook fireplace, exposed floor boards to the first floor and oak doors.

On the ground floor, the front door opens to the reception hall with staircase rising to the first floor. There is a dual aspect sitting room with inglenook, behind which is the study, a dual aspect kitchen/dining room with two oven Aga, a large utility room and a bathroom. On the first floor there are three bedrooms and a shower room.

OUTSIDE

The property is approached from the lane over a tarmac drive which provides parking in front of the detached double garage.

The garden extends to about 0.3 acres and lies to the front, rear and one side of the cottage, adjoining the green to the front (with the village pub just the other side). To the front there is a paved terrace from which a brick pathway links to a large and private brick terrace to the rear, next door to which is a charming log store/play house. The garden has an area of lawn, various flower and shrub beds and borders, a large vegetable area with greenhouse and a number of trees and shrubs. Tree house. Large garden shed.
