Dating back to the 17th century, the thatched home is thought to be the oldest building in the Chewton Common conservation area and housed allied airmen during the Second World War. As well as the main property, new owners will also discover a one-bedroom cottage at the front of the house.
Step inside and you'll find five bedrooms, three bathrooms, a spacious kitchen/breakfast room, large drawing room for entertaining, a dining room, plus an additional sitting area with its own traditional fireplace. The standalone cottage also has its own dining, sitting and eating area — perfect to rent out.
Not only did the property accommodate troops, but agents say it was also a former school for waifs and strays in Victorian times. It's the ideal home to lose yourself in a world gone by.
There's also a picture-perfect garden, complete with pretty flowers, shrub borders, luscious lawns, lilac wisteria and a patio area for entertaining. Bursting with romantic blooms, the outside space feels fun, relax and free-flowering.
Nestled in the popular village of Highcliffe on Sea, this cottage is just moments from unspoiled beaches, buzzy cafes, restaurants, a plethora of shops, Christchurch Harbour, Bournemouth, and The New Forest. Whether you enjoy bodyboarding or bathing, Highcliffe sits on one continuous bay and is the ideal place to spend summer days.
This property is currently on the market for £950,000 with Winkworth.
