Property Description

Lupin Cottage is a detached Grade II listed character cottage

constructed of mainly cream washed smooth rendered and brick

elevations beneath a thatched roof. The beautifully presented

accommodation has been cleverly re-configured and restored by the

current owners to create a stunning home with modern conveniences

whilst retaining the charm and character of the house.

The accommodation is as shown on the floor plan and includes a

good sized sitting room featuring a magnificent inglenook fireplace as

well as numerous exposed beams and timbers. Adjoining is a separate

dining room with vaulted ceiling, walk-in storage with shelving and

access to overhead storage space. The dining room looks over the

raised beds of the kitchen garden.

The kitchen/breakfast room includes bespoke units from John

Lewis of Hungerford, incorporating high and low level storage and

open fronted display shelving, a deep Butler sink with central mixer

tap. Wooden fronted ceramic tiled work surfaces. ‘Neff’ stainless

steel built-under oven and grill (replaced within the last year) with

four ring gas hob over and high level open fronted book shelving to

one side, plumbing for dish washer. The kitchen exudes charm with

exposed ceiling timber and Quarry tiled flooring. There is space for

a breakfast table in front of the leaded picture window overlooking

the landscaped garden. There is a separate utility/boiler room which

opens out onto the garden.

The main bathroom is also well appointed and is situated close to the

stairs on the ground floor. It includes half travertine tiles from Fired

Earth, and a white suite comprising bath with folding glass screen and

wall mounted shower.

There are three double bedrooms on the first floor. The master

bedroom has an impressive vaulted ceiling, brick fireplace and an

ingenious concealed shower room, again all beautifully presented.

The second bedroom also has a fireplace and exposed oak beams.

The third bedroom is approached through a separate landing area

which gives it a feeling of privacy making it ideal as a study, guest

accommodation or as a teenager’s room.


Lupin Cottage sits in an award winning landscaped garden including a

particularly impressive collection of David Austin roses, lupins and a variety

of mature shrubs and borders. The garden is separated into different areas

providing areas of colour throughout the seasons and privacy. There is a

terrace and summer house as well as a garden shed/store.

The gravelled parking area is verged by curved dwarf brick retaining

walls behind with colourful well stocked borders planted with a

great variety of mature and flowering plants and shrubs (designed

by Crocus for RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2010 with other beds in the

main garden designed as cutting beds by Sarah Raven which have so

far provided flowers for three local weddings). The parking area is

screened to the front by low picket fencing and provides access to the

garage with its attractive pitched slate roof.

The Location

Abbotts Ann has a public house, church, recently built primary

school, award winning community post office and store and nearby

garden centre. Andover, approximately three miles away, provides a

comprehensive range of shopping, educational and leisure facilities,

as well as a mainline railway station with fast services to London

(Waterloo in just over one hour). There is also a main line railway

station at Grateley, approximately ten minutes’ drive away. The A303

is close at hand allowing convenient access to London and the West

Country and the cathedral cities of Winchester and Salisbury are both
