Property Description

Full description

DESCRIPTION

A large detached residence constructed of brick elevations beneath a tiled roof with the benefit of a substantial integral double garage and large timber store/workshop.  The property was in fact built for a local family who were downsizing from a substantial period country house who clearly wanted to retain a certain style of living space, particularly on the ground floor, which features light and airy rooms with high ceilings.  The accommodation flows well and has a good connection with the beautifully landscaped gardens and grounds which extend to 0.67 acres, the main area of garden facing west.

The accommodation, which extends to 3,561 sq ft (including garage) comprises a useful enclosed porch, a beautiful central reception hall opening into a formal dining area beside the kitchen, a dual aspect drawing room with fireplace, study/bedroom six, garden room with grape vine, master bedroom with separate dressing room and en suite, guest bedroom suite, as well as utility and freezer rooms.  To the first floor there are three bedrooms (two doubles), a family bathroom and also a large boarded loft storage area accessed from bedroom five.  This well situated property will have great appeal to either large families or those who wish to downsize their existing land/garden obligations whilst retaining a comfortably proportioned home with the option to live solely on the ground floor, if required.


LOCATION

The property is situated in the picturesque village of Appleshaw which has a fine old church, primary school, playing fields, village hall and public house/restaurant.  Andover, approximately four miles away, offers a comprehensive range of shopping, educational and leisure facilities as well as a mainline railway station with extensive parking providing fast services to Waterloo (65 minutes). The A303 is close at hand allowing convenient access to London and the West Country.
