Three To View in Hampshire
Saturday 31 October 1998
Five miles from the mainline station at Winchester (less than an hour to London), Potty Cottage in Otterbourne is within the Thornden School catchment area and in a popular commuter area. A railway station at Shawford, two and a half miles away, provides a link to Winchester. Close to the village shop, church, restaurant and pubs, the white-painted house was built in the mid-1800s. It has an 18ft sitting room with fireplace, large kitchen breakfast room and separate dining room. There is also a playroom and study on the ground floor. Upstairs, there are four bedrooms and a bathroom. The house is reached via a pair of five-bar gates and has a small enclosed garden. Offers around pounds 210,000 to Lane Fox (01962 869999).
Selwood (incorporating Frenchman's Cottage) in Odiham actually used to be two homes, but they were linked by a previous owner to form a five- bedroom, Grade II-listed house with a single garage and parking space at the back. French prisoners of war were held in the cottage (the part of the building which boasts pretty bow windows) during the Napoleonic Wars, hence the house's colourful name. The large property has a reception hall big enough to hold a party in, a large drawing room, a morning room, a dining room and a study on the ground floor. The bathroom has been fully modernised and there is new carpeting throughout, making the house ready to walk in to. It also has beamed ceilings and pretty gardens with lavender and roses. Guide price pounds 500,000 through Hill & Morrison (01256 702892).
