The property was built in 1876, functioning as a Church of England school until 1962, before it was closed for approximately 10 years and then converted into a private residence. The property was also the subject of extension through the course of the 1950's and its early residential use to provide kitchen facilities, with further improvements made by the current owners who have lived at the property for nearly 14 years.
The home welcomes you in to a storm porch, allowing space to hang coats and store shoes before going into an inner hall, which provides central access to; an impressive principal living/dining area with stunning features including a log burning stove, stained glass window, impressive vaulted ceiling with exposed beams to mention a few. This living space also offers three rooms which could be used in a variety of ways, whether that be bedrooms or as a play room/study. A stair case leads to a mezzanine floor that the owners are currently using as their master bedroom. The bathroom is also located off the hallway, along with a lovely sized kitchen, which offers an array of eye and base level units, complimented with granite work surfaces and a breakfast bar. Offset from the kitchen is a bright and airy breakfast room, along with a utility room that gives access to the wet room with shower, w/c and basin, and to the garden area. The property is in very good decorative order and has been well maintained by the present owners, who have made a number of major improvements during their time in the house.
As aforementioned, the overall plot measures just over 1/4 of an acre. A shared driveway beside the newsagents leads to the five bar gate, with the driveway continuing round the house to reach a detached double garage, accessible via an electric roller door. There is a large garden area with separate patio, which is ideal for alfresco dining and entertaining. The garden is secluded thanks to an array of mature border shrubs and fruit trees, with the lawn area partially occupied by vegetable beds and a fruit cage, with space to the side occupied by a shed and greenhouse.
The property is ideally located within the centre of Charlton Village, just behind The Royal Oak public house and newsagents. Charlton itself offers a number of beautiful walks, particularly with Anton & Charlton Lakes nearby. Andover town centre is a short drive away providing an array of popular shops, restaurants and cafés. Andover railway station, a short walk away, provides a reliable train service to London Waterloo in just over an hour, and the nearby A303 provides a good road connection to the M3, A34 and the West Country.
