Property Description

Full description

DESCRIPTION

A substantial detached house believed to have been built in the 1920s, constructed of brick elevations beneath a hipped slate roof and featuring many interesting and attractive windows.  Additional benefits include a large driveway providing plenty of parking, a large detached five car garage block with workshop and beautiful gardens and grounds, all enjoying a high degree of privacy and extending to about two acres including paddock areas (with separate access to the road), the main garden surrounding the house and also a secret garden.  The property has not been placed on the market since early in the 1960s and whilst it has been well loved and maintained over the years there is now scope for modernisation, improvement and even extension if required (subject to obtaining the necessary consents).  In brief the accommodation includes a large entrance porch, reception and inner halls, cloakroom, three reception rooms (all with fireplaces) and kitchen/breakfast room with Aga, pantry, rear lobby and boiler room.  To the first floor there are five double bedrooms (three substantial large rooms), a family bathroom and separate shower room.


LOCATION

The property is situated adjoining countryside in the picturesque hamlet of East Cholderton located between the villages of Thruxton and Amport (both of which have a primary school and public house), and is within convenient reach of the A303 which allows easy access to London and the West Country.  The White Horse public house in Thruxton is within a short walk of the property and there are also many delightful walks nearby amongst the water meadows, designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Andover offers a comprehensive range of shopping, educational and leisure facilities, and there are mainline railway stations in both the town and the nearby village of Grateley (both providing fast services to Waterloo).  The cathedral cities of Winchester and Salisbury are both within 30 minutes’ drive.
