Guide Price £795,000
A well-proportioned yachtsmans cottage with a west-facing garden and attached garage situated on a quiet cul-de-sac within the highly desirable sailing village of Itchenor.
Located towards the end of this sought after cul de sac, this charming property provides surprisingly spacious accomodation throughout, accompanied with a good sized west-facing garden.
Now requiring some updating, and with the potential to extend (subject to the usual planning consents), the current accommodation is arranged over a single floor. Upon entering the spacious entrance hallway the main living room follows through to one side. Beyond is a good sized dining area with sliding doors opening onto a south-facing patio. On the other side of the hallway there is a kitchen with access to the garden.
Towards the rear of the property the main bedroom is particulaly spacious and has the benefit of an en suite bathroom and ample storage. From this bedroom, further sliding doors open onto the garden. There are two further bedrooms (both with hand basins and one with built-in wardrobes) and a family bathroom.
Outside the enclosed garden is mainly laid to lawn with many mature flowering shrubs and plants within the borders. The property is set well back in its own grounds and benefits from an area of off road parking to the front leading to the garage along with a lawned area with shrub borders.
The property is situated in the heart of Itchenor within walking distance of all the village amenities. This highly regarded and sought after harbour side village has a thriving sailing club and a multitude of moorings for boats and yachts, subject to availability. Also, is a beautiful church, village hall and, close to the harbour, the popular Ship Inn public house.
