5 bedroom cottage for saleWherwell, Andover, Hampshire SP11
Sold by Us £575,000
A substantial Grade II Listed linked cottage, which has been substantially extended over the years and forms the end of a short terrace of just three thatched cottages. The accommodation within the main cottage comprises an inner hall with cloakroom, four reception rooms, kitchen/breakfast room and separate utility/boot room. To the first floor there is a master bedroom with en suite bathroom, three further bedrooms (one with dressing room) and a family bathroom. The annexe comprises an open plan studio style area with fireplace, kitchenette, laundry area and shower room. If the annexe facility is not required, the property may well appeal to those who work from home or perhaps those requiring a B&B facility to provide additional income. Further benefits include: ample off road parking; lean-to garage/workshop; well stocked good size garden and oil fired central heating with radiators.
The property is situated in the centre of the village of Wherwell, renowned for its many period properties and which also has a church, village hall, playing fields and reputable primary school. There are charming country walks nearby including one along an unspoilt lane to the fine old church, and another across a long footbridge to The Common and neighbouring village of Chilbolton. The nearby town of Andover offers a comprehensive range of shopping, educational and leisure facilities, as well as a mainline railway station providing fast services to London (Waterloo) in about an hour. The A303 is close at hand allowing convenient access to London and the West Country, and the cathedral cities of Winchester and Salisbury are approximately 15 minutes and 25 minutes distant respectively.
