Three Westview Cottages can be found beyond a small wooden footbridge over the River Pang – a chalk stream in the much-loved and friendly village of Hampstead Norreys.

Here, a stable door opens to a light and airy front aspect living room with wooden flooring, a log burning stove in an oak-beamed, slate-floored, hearth and double-glazed wooden door and windows. A modern fully fitted kitchen includes a full-size dishwasher, washing machine, fridge and freezer, pyrolytic oven, induction hob and ample storage. A hallway then leads both to the gardens and to a modern downstairs bathroom with bath, electric shower, oak cabinetry, and underfloor heating. On the second floor, there is a comfortable, front-facing, double bedroom with a built-in wardrobe, and views over the pretty front gardens. A single bedroom is currently used as a studio office, with additional storage and views to the rear gardens. A further flight up from the landing is the third, double, bedroom with extensive storage under the eaves and views from a Velux window over Folly Hill and the Berkshire Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

To the rear, through a gate and across a small lawned area is a hidden garden. Here, a stone pathway between flower beds leads to a beautiful summerhouse surrounded by shrubs and trees - a haven for the wildlife that visits its small decking area. Perfect for lazy summer evening barbecues or as a tranquil space for quiet reading.

This exceptional cottage has a further shed located behind the summer house and two brick outbuildings, one currently used as a workshop and the other as a wood store.

To the front of the house is a small lawned front garden, and hidden behind the shrubs next to the river, is a wooden bike shed - completing a home of exceptional character in a village that was runner-up in Chanel Four’s village of the Year.

Hampstead Norreys
Hampstead Norreys village, in The Downs secondary school catchment area, has an excellent all-round village primary school, Mark Kemp Hair Gallery, and an award-winning village shop and tearoom that’s ideal for meeting over a coffee or enjoying tasty sweet or savoury treats. There’s the White Hart public house and restaurant which dates back to the 16th century and offers fantastic ales and locally sourced produce.

There is all you need to settle and live the country life here, St Mary’s Church is in the very centre, and a large versatile Community Centre offers everything from Christmas pantos to yoga and book clubs, private parties, art classes, children’s groups and much more. Surrounded by Dene meadows, the village’s own open space, it has an active cricket club, a children’s play area and is surrounded by woodlands where a newly completed cycle path now leads through the trees to Hermitage.
