THIS beautiful cottage is in one of Berkshire’s prettiest villages.
With its duck pond, cricket pitch, pubs and church, Hurst is a popular place to live. And this cottage is an attractive part of it, too. From its pretty porch and bay windows to its manicured lawn, Park Cottage is surely a dream home.
Improved by the present owner, the house provides generous accommodation over two floors, and may have the potential to enlarge further, subject to obtaining the necessary consents.
On the ground floor, the reception hall provides access to the principal reception rooms, including a lovely dual aspect lounge with views over and access on to the gardens.
There is also a separate dining area and a large and attractive open plan refitted kitchen/breakfast room/family room, which also opens on to the rear gardens. The kitchen is finished in high gloss black with contrasting oak counter tops, a matching black Aga and an island unit with a breakfast bar to one side.
Also accessed from the kitchen is the utility room and cloakroom.
Upstairs there are four large bedrooms, including the master, which has built-in wardrobes and a refitted en suite bathroom.
All the remaining bedrooms have built-in wardrobes, one with a refitted en suite shower room, and there is a further refitted shower room serving the last two bedrooms.
Outside the house is approached by a five-bar gate and driveway with lawns to one side.
The driveway continues to the side and leads to the detached garage.
At the back, the gardens are laid to lawn with a copse to the rear and the gardens have views across adjoining fields.
Park Cottage is in Sandford Lane, on the edge of Hurst village, and only a stone’s throw from Hurst Golf Course, Dinton Pastures Country Park and a popular sailing club.
