Outside the terrace is a useful outdoor space for entertaining while the garden is much large than most village cottages and has been sympathetically landscaped to create a formal garden with well-stocked beds – there is also an established vegetable garden.

The Apple House is located in Farnborough which offers a range of local facilities including a village hall, parish church and a popular public house. Further amenities are found at Fenny Compton, two miles away.

The guide price is £495,000. For further information please contact Savills on 01295 228 000 or visit www.savills.co.uk.
