Situated within the picturesque Village of Thruxton, which offers a wonderful community atmosphere and Village lifestyle, is this stunning Grade-II listed thatched cottage that dates back to the 17th century. This home is offered to the market with the added benefit of no onward chain complications.

This charming home welcomes you into its entrance hall via a storm porch; which is ideal for taking off coats and shoes. The entrance hall provides central access to a bright and airy living room with cruck framed ceiling showcasing exposed timber beams, a mezzanine floor that could be used as a storage or study space and there is a cosy log burning stove which makes for a stunning feature particularly in the Winter months. To the other side of the entrance is a formal dining room with double aspect windows, including a stunning bay window with window seating. It is worth noting there is an additional log burning stove, a door that opens into a deceptively spacious kitchen and a staircase that leads to two very useful storage rooms that the current owners are using as a study and children's bedroom. The kitchen features an array of eye and base level units along with ample space for white goods.

The property features three well-proportioned bedrooms and a family bathroom, with particular attention to the master bedroom where an array of built in storage and an en suite facility are also worth highlighting.

The property is ideally set within its plot, with a gravel driveway that leads up to the house and provides ample parking for numerous vehicles to the front and right of the property. There are lawned gardens to the front and rear, with the rear garden enclosed by fencing and tall hedging offering a high degree of privacy. The rear garden also features a patio area, ideal for alfresco dining and entertaining, with an array of wonderful fruit trees, exotic plants and beautiful border shrubs all making this garden a delight to spend time in all year round. There is a summerhouse offering plenty of storage, a greenhouse for vegetables and Pilhill Brook provides a delightful focal point and natural boundary during the wetter months.
