I saw pretty Primrose Cottage six years ago before the current owners bought it and it was in a bit of a sorry state. New life and oodles of love have been poured into the cottage now and it is simply stunning. The family are very sad to be leaving (and you can clearly see when you look round that they certainly haven’t scrimped on the improvements) but it is time for them to move on. Fabulous walks are on the doorstep as well as the local shop and 17th century Crown Inn. I’ve promised them I will find someone lovely to care for their house as they do. Could that be you?

Full description

We have all fallen for this beautifully presented cottage style semi detached house tucked in a quiet position in the ever-popular village of Shorwell. Improved to a high standard by the current owners in recent years, the home now has elegant, wide UPVC double glazed sash windows; Calor gas central heating and wonderfully light and well designed accommodation. The house has a wonderful blend of cottage character with polished floorboards and natural wood panelled doors which show off the fresh modern styling of the bathroom and superb kitchen. The double aspect lounge runs the full depth of the property with french doors leading into the garden and a beautiful rustic brick open fireplace. The gorgeous kitchen/dining room again is double aspect with a superb bespoke kitchen of painted units and superb marble and teak worksurface. This leads to a useful boot/utility room with a cloakroom off. Upstairs are three appealing bedrooms, the two double rooms having fabulous, far-reaching views up to The Downs. The rooms are serviced by a chic, fully tiled bathroom with fresh white suite. There is a large, mainly lawned garden to the rear with easy on-road parking straight behind in Westcourt Close. With its beautiful styling and wonderful village position, this is an unusual opportunity not to be missed!
