Property Description

Full description

DESCRIPTION

A picturesque detached 18th Century Grade II Listed period cottage constructed of whitewashed elevations under a mainly thatched roof (tiled to the rear) which we understand was totally re-thatched about three years ago, with the benefit of oil fired central heating.  The accommodation comprises a triple aspect sitting room with fireplace, a separate dining room with broad brick fireplace and latch door leading into a kitchen/breakfast room.  From this room a door leads to the rear lobby with cloakroom.  To the first floor there is a spacious landing, two double bedrooms (one double aspect) and a single bedroom and bathroom with coloured suite.  The gardens are an attractive feature of the property being well enclosed.

Agent’s Note:  This is the first time the property has been placed on the market in 44 years.


LOCATION

The property is particularly well situated in Church Lane, a pretty ‘no through’ lane in the heart of this highly sought after village, which has delightful walks nearby traversing the River Test and on to the renowned Test Way.  There is also an excellent recently renovated public house/restaurant (The Boot) with its barbecue area and gardens running down to the river Test and All Saints church dating back to the 12th Century.  Further facilities can be found in the neighbouring town of Stockbridge (two miles) which offers a variety of shops, a Post Office, hotels, restaurants and public houses, churches, a doctor’s surgery and primary and secondary schools.  The cathedral cities of Salisbury and Winchester are both within a twenty minute drive, and the A303 is close at hand allowing convenient access to London and the West Country.
