Broad Oak, Botley
Dating back to 1870, this beautifully presented character home has been thoughtfully extended by the current owners and comes with a wealth of both charm and character. The property benefits from being only a stone’s throw away from Botley’s pretty village centre and its mainline railway station. Accommodation on the ground floor briefly comprises a sitting room with wood burning stove, 17ft dining/family room, modern kitchen and cloakroom/boot room. On the first floor there are three double bedrooms and a modern family bathroom. Additional benefits include a loft room, solar panel for hot water, a good size attractive garden, outside studio, garage, carport and off road parking for several cars.
Botley has its own primary school and array of shops and amenities, with the pretty market town of Bishops Waltham also being close by, as is Hedge End and its retail park. Southampton Airport is only 20 minutes away and all main motorway access routes are also easily accessible.
INSIDE The property is approached via a pathway leading to an oak wooden and glass panelled front door which leads directly through to the kitchen. The kitchen is a bright, dual aspect room and has been fitted with a matching range of wall and base units with cupboards and drawers under. There is a one and a half bowl sink unit, gas cooker point, plumbing space for a dishwasher and washing machine, as well as further appliance space. The room also benefits from spotlights and complementary tiling, with a door to one side leading through to an inner hallway which has wooden floorboards, stairs leading to the first floor and an understairs cupboard. A door to one side leads through to a downstairs cloakroom/boot room which has a window to the front, WC, wash hand basin and space for cloaks. The good size sitting room has a beautiful, exposed brick chimney breast to one wall with inset wood burning stove. There are exposed floorboards, TV and various power points, with a set of oak bi-folding doors at one end leading through to the 17ft dining/family room. This is a bright, well-proportioned room with stripped floorboards, a window enjoying views over the garden and French doors leading out onto the patio area.
On the first floor landing there is a double glazed window to the front and access to the loft which is fully boarded, has a fitted desk and two Velux windows, as the room is currently used as a home office by the vendors. Bedroom one is a dual aspect room with stripped floorboards. Bedroom two, which is also a good size double room, has a window to the front and a cast iron fireplace. Bedroom three is a dual aspect room with stripped floorboards. The family bathroom has a window to the front and has been fitted with a modern suite comprising a panel enclosed bath with telephone style shower attachment over, separate shower cubicle, wash hand basin, heated towel rail and WC.
OUTSIDE The garden is mainly laid to lawn and planted with a variety of flowers and trees, with both paved and decked patio areas. There is a children’s play house and an outside studio which has a set of double doors and a window to the side. To one side of the garden there is a gate leading out onto a good size shingled driveway leading to the detached garage which has an electric metal door, power and light and a fully boarded loft space. To the side of the garage there is a carport.
