White Cottage offers a rare opportunity for a buyer to redesign and refurbish their new home in a beautiful setting on the edge of the village of Hartley Wintney. Situated amongst the woods and fields of West Green, the house has around 2.5 acres of its own mature garden and grounds.

This 4 bedroom detached cottage is on the market for the first time in a long while, having been in the family for many years. The house is in need of updating, modernising and extending (subject to the necessary planning consents) and provides good living space downstairs and 4 well proportioned bedrooms. It is set in a peaceful, rural location but still connected to transport, the village and local schools.

The Property
On the ground floor, the house opens into a dining room and hallway which leads into both the kitchen and the through reception room. The main reception is double aspect looking out to the woods to the front and the with doors opening onto the gardens to the rear. It also has the benefit of a fireplace and chimney. The kitchen is situated to the rear of the house and leads through to a separate utility room, larder and downstairs cloakroom. There is also a study or separate bedroom which look out onto the rear garden. The double garage which is integral to the front of the house can also be accessed from the utility area.
Upstairs are 4 double bedrooms and one bathroom with a separate cloakroom.
The outstanding feature of the cottage is the 2.5 acres (approximately) of established mature gardens with a range of formal beds, shrubs, lawned areas, orchard and fruit trees. There are a number of outbuildings including a brick workshop, greenhouses, sheds and a stable or woodstore. There is huge potential to create a stunning garden and the scope to have animals or a small holding. The drone photos help to capture the gardens but a viewing and walk through the grounds is the only way to fully appreciate how special the property is.

The Location
The cottage is on West Green Common, on the edge of the village of Hartley Wintney, close to the National Trust’s historic West Green House. It is a quiet no through road with the woods and walks of West Green Common immediately outside the front of the house.

The Village
Hartley Wintney is a much sought after Hampshire village offering an active High Street with a broad range of privately owned boutique shops. These include restaurants, cafés, delis, pubs, organic food and wine merchants, beauticians, clothing, arts and antique outlets. There is also a Tesco, Doctor’s surgery, Dentist, Post Office, dry cleaners and Pharmacy.
The village has at its heart the historic Hartley Wintney Cricket Club, which dates back to 1770 and is believed to be the oldest permanently played cricket ground in England. There is also a golf club and numerous other sporting and recreational societies, which contribute to the village’s sense of community.
