Description
Sold in Association with Fine & Country. A lovely six bedroom cottage built in the 1800's with an abundance of space both inside and out.

Location The property is situated in the Hampshire village of Eversley, meaning 'Wild Boar Clearing' and the boar is the symbol of the village.

The area is well served for schools including Charles Kingsley School (named after Charles Kingsley, who for 35 years was rector of the parish) St Neots, Yateley Manor, and Wellington College. There is a village shop, 4 public houses, a church, cricket and football teams, a river and some wonderful countryside. Walks to the countryside can be accessed from the public footpath opposite Hundreds.

The nearby towns of Wokingham, Fleet, Reading and Basingstoke provide a comprehensive range of shopping, leisure and recreational facilities.

Hundreds is located between the M3 and M4 with their routes to London and the South West. Fleet railway station is only 10 minutes away, with its high speed trains in to London Waterloo (45 minutes) and access to Paddington is from Reading mainline station - a 20 minute drive, with its commuter trains arriving in London in 25 minutes.

The entrance to Hundreds welcomes you in to the large reception hall of this lovely old cottage. With stripped wooden floors in several of the rooms, many of the original features have been retained including the duck's nest cast iron fireplace in the sitting room and the extensive veranda along the side of the house, which is accessed from the dining room and sitting room.

Doors lead off the reception hall to the dining room, drawing room, kitchen - with space for a 7 foot table - and study, with stairs leading to four bedrooms upstairs, two of which are double rooms, one with en suite cloakroom and a family bathroom. Another door off the reception hall leads to what was previously used as an annexe, a more recent addition to the property, comprising 2 double bedrooms (one currently used as a home gym), a sitting room, kitchen (currently the utility room), shower room, cloakroom and another room which could potentially be an en suite bathroom. This would be a great space for elderly parents, teenage children or an au pair/nanny.

The heart of the home is found in the large kitchen/breakfast room which has space for a range cooker and is fitted with traditional cream painted units. The dining area is light and airy with French doors leading to the secluded terrace area, adorned by roses and awash with colour.

Outside Hundreds is approached by close board gates opening to a large gravelled parking area for several vehicles. Beyond this is a large terrace which leads to a lawn with steps up to the heated swimming pool and more lawn beyond. The plot extends to almost half an acre and overlooks fields to the rear and paddocks on one side - the countryside is literally on the doorstep. Outdoor buildings include a shed with power and light, a single garage and a shed housing the pump and boiler for the pool which also has power and light.
