Converted in the early 1990s, Little Plum Tree Barn is a wonderful wood clad barn conversion set in a lovely quiet position in the village of Houghton and full of character features such as exposed beams and wood flooring. The thing that immediately strikes one upon entering the property is the way it combines the best features of a converted barn but still has the feel of a period house. The vaulted sitting room is very light with a large open brick fireplace and floor to ceiling windows with French doors to the garden. The kitchen is fully integrated with steps up to the dining room and a door to the garden. Completing the ground floor is the master bedroom with en suite bathroom and a shower room.
Upstairs there are two further bedrooms, both
with cloakrooms that are accessed from the
dining room via two separate staircases.
Little Plum Tree Barn is attractively tucked away
within the heart of this extremely popular and
largely unspoilt Test Valley village of Houghton,
forming part of the Conservation Area, and in
which there is a church, village hall and well known public house.
Just to the north is the market town of Stockbridge, which offers a most comprehensive range of amenities, including a good selection of shops, doctors' surgery, chemist, church, and a number of public houses and restaurants.
The Cathedral cities of Winchester and Salisbury
are a little further afield and provide more
extensive amenities, whilst the road networks
in the area are first class, with the A303 just to
the north connecting the West Country with
London, via the M3 motorway, and there are
mainline railway stations at both Andover and
Winchester, both on the London Waterloo line.
There are a good number of private schools in
the area; preparatory schools include Twyford,
Farleigh and Pilgrims, together with public
schools at Winchester College and St Swithun's,
King Edwards in Southampton and Godolphin in
The surrounding countryside is renowned for its
natural beauty and in particular, within the Test
Valley itself, there is probably some of the finest
trout fishing in England. There is horse racing
at Salisbury and Newbury, together with a good
number of golf courses, and the South Coast is
close at hand with its excellent aquatic pursuits,
The house is approached via a gravel driveway.
The garden to the rear is mainly laid to lawn with herbaceous borders, shrubs, pergola and a large flag stone patio that wraps around the barn. The double garage is to one side of the barn with a lovely rose garden behind.
