Set in an elevated position within the popular Test Valley village of Longstock. This popular village stands in some of Hampshire's most attractive rolling countryside close to the market town of Stockbridge. This delightful town is only about 0.5 miles distant and provides a range of day to day requirements as well as pubs, restaurants, hotels and galleries. The cathedral city of Winchester approximately 10 miles to the east provides a more extensive range of shopping and recreational facilities. There are numerous good private schools in the area with prep schools including Farleigh, Norman Court, Twyford and Pilgrim's, and public schools including Winchester College, Marlborough College, St Swithun's and Godolphin in Salisbury. The local surrounding countryside provides an array of sporting amenities: there is fishing on some of the country's most renowned chalk streams including the River Test and nearby River Itchen, there is also fine pheasant and partridge shooting. Golf is available at Alresford, Winchester and Test Valley Golf Club to the north. The area is also ideal for walking and riding with its proximity to National Trust land, and there is extensive sailing and other water based activities on the South Coast and the Solent. Communications within the locality are excellent, access to the M3 at junctions 8 and 11 providing fast links to London, the M25, Heathrow Airport and the M27 to the South Coast. There are fast trains from Winchester to London Waterloo taking approximately 57 minutes, and also train services at nearby Grateley and Andover. Southampton International Airport is nearby with an increasing international flight network.
Halfway Cottage is a good-looking 5-bedroom period family home. This fine property is set well within its grounds which are approaching 1 acre and comes with some fabulous accommodation. The 29'3" x 13'6" drawing room is a superb space with attractive fireplace and is ideal for those big occasions. The kitchen/breakfast room at the heart of the house has a range of floor and wall mounted units including cupboard and drawer sections and integrated Aga. Steps lead up to a breakfast area with further cupboard space. The other reception rooms include a dining hall with central fireplace, linking through to the snug area. A study at the far end provides good space for working from home, and a conservatory provides a particularly useful link between the dining hall and the principal drawing room. The accommodation at ground floor level is generous and well balanced, ideal for those looking to house a growing family.
At first floor level there are 5 bedrooms and a family bathroom, and an en suite to one of the bedrooms, which can equally be a Jack-and-Jill arrangement. The overall feeling of this fine home is one of great character with a very welcoming atmosphere and delightful outlooks from all rooms.
The property is approached via a gravel driveway, at the far end of which is a detached double garage with twin up and over doors and storage space above. The d riveway leads right up to the front door, and there is parking for a number of vehicles. The gardens are a real feature of Halfway Cottage and surround the property, and provide a wonderful outlook from whichever room you look out from. There is a swimming pool area to one side, and a part walled sunken garden. The terrace immediately adjoining the property provides a fabulously secluded area for outdoor entertaining and relaxing. The gardens have been principally laid to lawn with some large open spaces, but equally there is attractive planting around the property, giving it a good degree of interest throughout the year.
