This charming cottage was built in 2003 and forms part of a small niche development of two sets of semi-detached cottages that lie at the eastern end of the village on the lane to Avington Park. The property has been exceptionally well-maintained (by the current and only owners). The accommodation is light and bright throughout and has a welcoming hallway with a cloakroom and stairs to the first floor, a most spacious 'live in' style kitchen/dining/family room and a separate utility/boot room. A sitting room further compliments the ground floor and in fact both of these rooms are double aspect. The first floor has a spacious landing which accommodates a desk, a master bedroom with en-suite again offering a double aspect with views over open farmland to the front and the rear garden. There are two further bedrooms and a bathroom. Externally there is a delightful garden to the front which is laid to lawn with a mature cherry plum tree and a gravel drive which provides off-road parking for two cars. The approach to the rear of the property has another car parking space demised to the property, whilst there is an open fronted car port on the northern boundary. The garden to the rear of the cottage is a low-maintenance courtyard styled space with an access gate which approaches a path to the car port.
The village of Easton lies in the Itchen Valley on the north-eastern side of the cathedral City of Winchester, just south of the B3047 which runs through the valley from Abbotts Worthy to Alresford. Easton is lined with attractive period houses and cottages, has a Church, two public houses, cricket pitch, village hall and garage. There is a local school at Itchen Abbas, the independent school Princes Mead is about one mile and there is a Post Office/shop at Kings Worthy. Surrounding the village is beautiful open countryside and the cottage looks directly south over farmland. There are very special walks along the banks of the River Itchen and through Avington Park.
The proximity of Winchester and its many facilities are a particular attribute, especially the fast access to London either by road or rail with the mainline station to London Waterloo (journey time about 58 minutes). The M3 provides fast links northwards to the M25 motorway, the airports and central London or southwards to the M27 for the South Coast.
Leave Winchester via the Worthy Road, turning left after The Cart & Horses public house and then immediately right sign posted Alresford. Continue for some distance until you see a sign for Easton on the right-hand side, proceed along this road. Turn left after The Cricketers public house, proceed down the lane continuing round the sharp left-hand bend with The Chestnut Horse public house on your left. Continue round the sharp right-hand bend and 'Sweet Woodruff Cottage' and adjoining neighbours are the last properties on the left before you leave the village into open countryside.
