Just 1 word sums this House up - CHARACTER! A truly delightful Victorian Cottage with bags of original features that are too many to note but if you appreciate charm and character then you will fall for this House. In fact, it has been so well cared for and presented by the present Owner that the House has been featured in the " Beautiful Homes " Magazine!

The Ground Floor has been thoughtfully extended to its side and rear. The entrance is through an enlarged L shaped Hallway that provides a large bright and welcoming entry point to this lovely House and an additional feature of this extension is a large and very tasteful Cloakroom/Shower Room with a high sloping ceiling and velux window. Also accessed from the Hallway is the front facing and bay windowed Living Room with a Log Burner for the colder times of the year! The Hall has stairs rising to the First Floor but also leads to a super 27' long Kitchen which widens to a large Dining space providing ample space to socialise. The Kitchen is presented in a mix of rustic and modern styling which fit the House perfectly. At the end of this part of the House, there is a seating area that overlooks the sunny Patio and replacement Glazed Doors lead to outside from here too.    

The First Floor has its original floorboards with a white painted finish. The Master Bedroom faces to the front with 2 original sash windows, there is a further Double Bedroom at the back and a large Single Bedroom too. The Bathroom is very tastefully fitted and has a cosy bath with shower above, the room complemented by grey tiling.  

Externally, those with an interest in gardening will be in their element! The  rear Garden is very impressively stocked with a range of shrubbery, plants and trees of differing shapes, colours and sizes. Rarely have we seen such a lovely Garden and it is truly tranquil and peaceful.  Being South facing, the Sun shines brightly but there are areas of shade aswell.  At the very end of the super 80' Garden is a substantial outbuilding that is currently used as a working Pottery but its use is versatile and is just a further bonus for the next lucky Home Owner!

The front has been re-designed to provide driveway parking for 2 small or 1 large car and the House is within a 3 minute level walk to 2 local supermarkets, an excellent independent butchers and coffee shop, takeaways can also be found in the area with Aldershot town centre and its railway station just under 1 mile away.

Aldershot is located just 30 miles from South West London and just off the A331 with road links to the A3, M3 and beyond. Rail commuters are well served with connections to London Waterloo in under 1 hour and to the South Coast via Guildford equally accessible. There is an excellent local Bus network serving the area too. 
Aldershot’s historic reputation as the ‘Home of the British Army ‘ still survives although there has been significant development over the years and even now, a lot of the original Army Land has been and is being redeveloped into Residential communities with appropriate infrastructure to support it.  Various schools offer well regarded Ofted service levels to provide educational support to children of all ages and further educational options are accessible in nearby Farnham Art College and Farnborough or Guildford Sixth Form colleges.
With a strong and vibrant multi racial community, the town has a wide selection of shops, restaurants and cafés and the pedestrianised area is under redevelopment now that will provide a fresh and exciting place to shop, socialise and chill! The Princes Hall often hosts well known music and comedy acts, there is an Arts centre too and the Westgate Centre has a modern multiplex cinema and further places to eat and relax. Football fans can watch their ‘ local team ‘ at Aldershot FC and with many miles of heathland, nature reserves and walks, walkers and dog owners are very well catered for too
