Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Originally part of Clapgate Cottages, this pleasant two/three bedroom bungalow is located in Whitchurch, approximately two miles from the centre of town. The plot is entered through wooden gates, beyond which a gravel driveway leads to the bungalow. There is parking and a sizeable garden area to the front and side of the bungalow, which has a (lpg) gas central heating system via radiators. The home is located on a plot with one additional dwelling and has a delightful semi-rural feel.

Whitchurch
Nestled in the heart of the Hampshire countryside, Whitchurch is reputedly the smallest town in the county and straddles the famous River Test. This charming town has an excellent range of local shops and amenities which include a doctor’s surgery, dentist, bakery and petrol garage, as well as a primary and secondary school. Centred between Basingstoke, Winchester, Andover and Newbury, the town enjoys excellent communications with convenient access to the A34, A303, M3 and M4 corridors, with the main line railway station provides a direct service to London Waterloo.

Background
Clapgate Cottages as it was called in the 1700s, was originally a small hamlet of up to 5 dwellings. The site is now home to two properties; Clapgate Cottage and The Old Tollhouse, which marks the beginning of The Portway, a Roman road which used to run directly to Silchester. The Old Tollhouse was there to collect tolls and to provide shelter, food and tobacco in clay pipes to travellers and pilgrims travelling to Silchester.
As the property ran close by the original Great Western Railway line (which was closed in the 1960s), there are a couple of interesting covenants in the deeds. These allow full abstraction rights of water, meaning you don't pay water rates, and that the owners are allowed to sell water to travellers, but not cream teas to railway travellers!
The two properties have their own water supply sourced from a flint lined well, which was converted into a bore hole and is dipped every month by Basingstoke and Deane.
