Character, thatched 4 bed cottage, with garage, lodge, garden & parking.
Hinkhams Cottage is an unlisted early 19th century thatched cottage. Well maintained and much loved home, it offers versatile family living. The property runs parallel to the lane in a raised position offering delightful countryside views over Marshwood Vale.
Offering a separate triple aspect sitting room, large kitchen & dining room with a generous conservatory. These all look out onto a delightful lawned and raised bordered Mediterranean style enclosed garden, full of colour and interest. In addition there is a cloakroom, storage and a large utility, with stable door.
Stairs rise to the first floor with eave dormers throwing light the length of the landing which leads to two en-suite double bedrooms, a further double and a large single and family bathroom. The double bedrooms all have fitted or walk-in wardrobes and the en suite to the master bedroom has a roll-top bath as well as a shower. Most of the bedrooms are at the front of the property, with stunning views over the Vale.
The cottage benefits from oil-fired central heating throughout (piped under the stone flooring at ground level). Additionally, there is a log burner in the sitting room and electric under floor heating in both the conservatory and the summer house. The 4Kw solar panels on the garage roof generate c. £2,000 of tax-free income p.a., with approximately 12 years to run on the off-take agreement.
Outside the walled garden, the gated driveway offers generous parking for 3-4 cars. The large double garage would offer parking for two more cars. To the back of the garage, stairs rise to a large eaves room which could have many uses and is currently used as a music room. To the side of the garage is a vegetable area. The garden further extends to include a generous sized summer house with cloakroom facilities, ideal for overflow guests, office or studio, with outside decking and lovely views. Extending in total to approximately 0.25 acres.
