A very pretty colour washed period cottage, absolutely immaculate, full of character, mature south facing garden and long views over the adjoining countryside.
The property is an enchanting period cob cottage which has lime rendered and colour washed elevations with inset double glazed small pane windows under a slate roof. Within the last six years a substantial wing was added on the eastern side but very much in keeping. The accommodation is beautifully proportioned, full of character, the flooring throughout the ground floor is ceramic tiles and it has the versatility of a ground floor bedroom and bathroom. A central gravel path, lawn on either side, leads up to the front door and into the reception hall. It has a glass and china cupboard, fireplace with Victorian grate and stairs from an inner hall rising to the first floor. The beautiful drawing room has a wood burning stove, display alcove and a wide archway to a study/music area. There is a superb kitchen/dining room fitted with oak veneer units, pewter handles and topped with polished black granite worktops and there is a French door to the garden and terrace. There is a Rangemaster cooker, extractor hood over, refrigerator/freezer, dishwasher and china sink. There is a utility room with fitted units, wood worktops and a shelved larder cupboard and the rear hall has a door out to the gravel courtyard. There is a ground floor double bedroom and the second bathroom. The first floor landing provides space for a study area. There is a principal suite with a large bedroom and adjoining bathroom. The second double bedroom has an adjoining door to a Jack & Jill shower room and there is also a third bedroom, currently used as a study.
From the lane a pair of five bar gates open into a gravel drive which gives access to a single garage. The wonderful mature gardens lie to the south and east of the cottage. Along the lane frontage there is a rendered and painted wall and on the eastern side post and rail fencing divides the garden from open countryside. The garden is principally lawned studded with fruit trees, beech hedging, herbaceous borders, lavender beds and there is also some shaped box hedging and a kitchen garden.
The cottage lies in the small rural village of Kimpton close to the Hampshire/Wiltshire borders about five miles west of Andover between the Bourne and Test valleys. Kimpton has a church, public house and primary school with better facilities in the small town of Ludgershall (3 miles) or Andover (5 miles) with its mainline station on the Waterloo line. Also within easy driving distance are Hungerford, Marlborough, the cathedral cities of Salisbury and Winchester and Southampton. It is also ideally placed for the A303, about one mile, which provides fast access to the West Country or the A34 north to the M4 or east on the M3 for London, the M25 orbital motorway and the airports.
Recreational facilities include golf courses at Andover and Tidworth; chalk stream fishing on the River Test and its tributaries, wonderful walking and riding countryside within the area.
