Glen Road is close to main commuter routes, junction 8 or 9 of the M27 and the Locks Heath Centre with its everyday community and shopping facilities plus popular coffee house and Waitrose supermarket. Additionally close at hand are walks through Holly Hill, a wooded menagerie of secret paths to the lakes, waterfalls and sunken gardens of this rambling old estate , trails lead through to the most picturesque and scenic part of the Hamble, unspoiled and overlooking the red bricks of Bursledon, the river is dotted with motor cruisers and elegant yachts that glint and tring on the moorings, seabirds foraging amongst the wrecks; an abundance of footpaths wind along this fascinating riverbank to the rural patchwork of the meon valley and out to Southampton water, It’s an ever-changing window of activity and interest. Away from the tranquility is the Marina, a hive of maritime activity; chandleries, boat builders, cottage industries, and bistros; its a great meeting and eating place thriving on the fruits of the Hamble river. All of these attributes have seen this location evolve as a destination address for those looking for activity and amenities close at hand.

The property is well presented with a warm welcoming feel further enhanced by a neutral interior and a lovely finish throughout. All rooms have been stylishly decorated and hold a clever mix of traditional period features with a contemporary twist ideal for modern living. There is a woodburner set against a feature wall in the sitting room and a good sized dining room with ample room for formal furniture. The conservatory is a versatile addition overlooking the garden and accessed from the kitchen with plenty of storage and preparation space with views across the garden and rooftops. On the first floor the bedroom accommodation is well proportioned and there is a modern bathroom. Character homes are a joy to live in and even more fun to furnish as one can get lost in interior magazines and design ideas all of which a home of this nature lends itself so well to. To complement the garden is lawned with a paved patio ideal for al fresco dining and borders well stocked with established shrubbery and perennials offering bursts of colour throughout the seasons and a welcome environment for wildlife.

In summary this is a pretty two bedroom cottage with scope to extend subject to planning, off road parking for numerous vehicles and stunning elevated views from the garden, an early inspection is highly recommended.
