Burton Cottage is a delightful, 4 bedroom, quintessential Grade II listed thatched cottage which has recently been completely renovated to provide the perfect countryside residence set within just over half an acre.
This unusually large, light and airy cottage is wonderfully traditional from the outside and inside retains the unique character that only an older property can give. This is now combined with thoughtful and considerate renovations and delightful interior design to give the highest quality finishes resulting in an enchanting family home.
Burton Cottage has an amazing history, being the birthplace of the childhood story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. The Poet Laureate who wrote the story and once lived at Burton Cottage must have taken some inspiration from this magical home!
Exposed timber beams, wood burners, cottage windows and wooden floors keep the essential character of the property, however spacious, light rooms, modern technological features and plenty of storage make this home capable of dealing with the demands of a modern lifestyle. Outside, attractive gardens to the rear and side, with dedicated outdoor entertaining space under the loggia are extremely private and add to the wonderful ambiance of the property.
Downstairs features a wonderful entrance hall which currently also doubles as a study and sets the tone for the rest of the house characterful, light and airy. The hall accommodates the stairs to the first floor and doors to dining area, lounge and breakfast. The stunning triple aspect large lounge features a log burner, wonderful mantelpiece and useful alcove.
The dining room currently has a table capable of seating 10 and further enhances the cottage feel with exposed beams. The attached cloakroom, like all the bathrooms, is finished to exceptional specification and in wonderful contemporary country style. A breakfast room leads from the hall into the Kitchen, which features Bosch integrated appliances, granite worktops and a Belfast style sink.
From the kitchen is a door to the patio and beyond the kitchen a spacious laundry/ utility room and the wonderful snug. This room has access via the rear porch to another exterior door and another downstairs cloakroom, giving potential for conversion into a separate annexe if required.
On the first floor, the expansive Master bedroom leads through to a luxurious ensuite with dressing area. With a dual walk in shower, His and Hers vanity basins, heated mirrors and underfloor heating, this very special ensuite adds more than a touch of opulence to the Master accommodation. Three further generous double bedrooms and another stunning family bathroom complete the upstairs accommodation.
Outside, the cottage has a large gravel driveway and a detached oversized garage with power and light. The southerly garden is largely laid to lawn and is bordered by hedging and trees, giving complete privacy. The garden is well equipped for entertaining with a decked area and a covered Loggia and a number of other useful outbuildings. Well stocked gardens, mature plants and trees and a pond provide various features of interest to maintain the cottage feel.
Burton itself is popular village with a strong community feel and local amenities, including its own Primary School (Ofsted rating: Good) and local post office and pubs. It lies adjoining farmland and on the edge of the New Forest National Park, giving many opportunities and easy access to countryside pursuits whilst being only a few miles from the historic market towns of Christchurch and Ringwood. The coast is within easy reach and mainline trains to London, Southampton and Bournemouth are available at Christchurch and Hinton Admiral.
