Property Description

Full description

CHAIN-FREE SALE An unusual opportunity to acquire a circa 1933 detached bungalow with a 1979 built 4-roomed annexe lending itself to modernisation and alteration in a set back village location opposite fields.

Naturally screened in its own gardens, the property lies between Ropley Dean and North Street, Ropley being towards the North Westerly country outskirts of the parish of Ropley village. The immediate surroundings include mainly detached properties of varying ages, sizes and types on the same side of the A31. In the best traditions, Ropley has a well preserved village centre which incorporates a primary school, shop and post office, unique coffee/meeting room, village hall and sports field, and an ecclectic mix of sports and interest clubs and a programme of events. Footpaths and bridleways traverse the surrounding countryside with the serene valley of the River Itchen to the West. The major centres of Alton, Petersfield and Winchester have High Street shops, state and private schools, colleges, commuter trains to London Waterloo and golf courses, whilst Alresford, 3 miles away, has a landmark Broad Street, useful shops, Perins Academy senior school and annual agricultural shows...
