Full description

Leyswood Cottage is a beautiful Grade II Listed thatched cottage, originally a row of three cottages and now restored and converted into one dwelling.

Dating back to the 17th century the property is full of character with attractive inglenook fireplaces and original beams and now forms a charming family home with great entertaining space.

On the ground floor there are two good sized reception rooms, both with big inglenook fireplaces and doors opening onto the rear terrace and a lovely well-fitted kitchen with oak cupboards, a Rangemaster cooker and doors leading out onto both the front drive and rear terrace. There is also a large utility room and two bathrooms.

Upstairs, there are four bedrooms, accessed via three separate staircases.

Leyswood Cottage is located in the hamlet of Wildhern which falls in the Parish of Tangley & Hatherden, approximately 4 miles north of Andover. It is a popular village with a thriving community and social scene of both young and old.

The Parish has three very good local public houses in the area including The Fox and The Cricketers at Tangley and The Old Bell and Crown in Hatherden. Within walking distance there is a village hall and a newly established sport facility with hard flood-lit tennis court, cricket net and children's play area. Andover itself offers excellent extra-curricular activities for children such as cricket, rugby, tennis, gym and swimming. There is also great shopping and amenities including a Waitrose in Andover.

There are a good number of excellent private and
state schools in the area. Local schools include the well renowned Bourne Valley primary schools of Vernham Dean, Hurstbourne Tarrant and St Mary Bourne. Prep schools include Farleigh School (8 miles) as well as the number of schools that Winchester and Salisbury have to offer. Popular private boarding schools within easy reach include Marlborough College, Sherborne, Dauntsey's, Godolphin and Winchester College.

The house benefits from a generous in and out gravelled drive approached via timber gates and provides parking for several cars. There is a single garage with an electric door and loft space above. The gardens have been thoughtfully designed and beautifully landscaped. To the front are well stocked flowerbeds in front of wonderful mature yew topiary hedges which screen the house from the village lane. To the rear, doors from the drawing room, dining room and kitchen open onto a large terrace which leads out onto a lawned garden with further well-stocked beds.

There is a superb 'Garden Room' which is insulated, double glazed and has electric heating and lighting. It is currently used throughout the year as a library, home office, TV room, and coffee area. It also has TV cable, broadband internet access and landline.
