Property Description

Full description


A semi-detached Victorian cottage constructed with attractive brick elevations with UPVC double glazed windows beneath a slate roof and a single storey extension to the rear beneath a flat roof.  The beautifully presented and well appointed accommodation comprises an open plan dual aspect sitting/dining room featuring two open fireplaces (one not in use), a well fitted kitchen (also dual aspect) with a two oven Rayburn, oak work surfaces and an adjoining lean-to lobby/boot room.  There is also a bathroom on the ground floor.  To the first floor there are two double bedrooms, however the current vendor has converted one of these into a luxury shower/dressing room, which could be re-instated into a bedroom, if required, as there is also a bathroom on the ground floor.  The cottage has a well enclosed front garden, a courtyard style rear garden with country views and the benefit of two off road parking spaces.


The property is situated on the very edge of the village of St Mary Bourne, but within easy walking distance of one of the pubs (Bourne Valley Inn).  The village, which is renowned for its many period houses and cottages and the surrounding undulating countryside, has a primary school, doctor’s surgery, church, modern village hall, a Post Office and shop, as well as two public houses and recreation ground with cricket pitch. The nearby towns of Andover (about five miles distant) and Newbury offer fast mainline rail services to Waterloo and Paddington respectively, together with a comprehensive range of shopping, educational and leisure facilities.  An excellent rail service to Waterloo is also available from Whitchurch, about three miles distant.  The cathedral city of Winchester is approximately twenty minutes’ drive away.  The A34 and A303 roads and M3 and M4 motorways are all within easy reach.
