Property description

Whitchurch Hampshire is a charming market town, which topped the Evening Standard's list for London-commuter hotspots in 2017. It's got plenty of history and points of interest, with its conservation status and plenty of independent shops, right next to an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. This makes it an idyllic place for anyone needing to travel to London regularly but who doesn't want to be in the thick of it.

The property needs a refurbishment to the bathroom and some of the other rooms could do with a makeover, however it could be well worth the effort, as it would be worth around £165,000 with a revamp (at time of writing). It could also make a good return as a rental property, given Whitchurch's direct trains to London Waterloo and good links to Reading and Southampton. These factors make it an attractive purchase for first time buyers and investors.

There's 145 years left on lease, so it should have the feel of a freehold property.

Location and Transport Links

Whitchurch train station is a 13 minute walk, from which there are rush hour trains which can take you directly to London Waterloo in one hour. Throughout the rest of the day, there are also regular trains to Basingstoke to the east and Warminster, Salisbury and Frome to the west.

Whitchurch sits on the A34 dual-carriageway. This makes it quick to get around; it's a 35 minute drive to Southampton and a 45 minute drive to Reading from the property.

Nearby Amenities

Whitchurch is a lively, historic market town, which contains oodles of charm from its many listed and notable buildings, to its Friday market and annual Winter festival. One of the most notable points of interest is the country's oldest operating silk mill which is based just down the road from the property. Whitchurch also sits on the edge of the North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, so there's plenty to explore if you're into nature, hiking or cycling.

If indoor workouts are more your thing, there's a gym at Testbourne Community School, a 7 minute walk away, around the back of which lies Longmeadow Sports Centre, where the football club meets. The nearest swimming pool is a short drive away in the neighbouring town of Andover.

As the property is based in the centre of Whitchurch, it benefits from being close to the local independent shops and cafes. For day-to-day groceries, there is a Co-op and a Tesco Express, both within a 1 minute walk. The nearest large supermarket is Sainsburys (6 miles). To make the most of what the area has to offer, there's also a large market every Friday at the Civic Centre and Market Hall which supplies a huge variety of local produce.

For food & drink, try local favourites The Watership Down Inn (1.5 miles) or Blue Ginger (0.1 miles). The highly rated pub King's Arms is right around the corner and gin fans will be delighted to know the Bombay Sapphire Distillery is 2 miles up the road, which holds tours and events throughout the year.

All your medical needs are covered, as the property is situated above a dentists, and there's a surgery and a Lloyd's Pharmacy both a couple of houses away.

The local primary school is Whitchurch C of E which is rated Good by Ofsted and is 11 minute walk away. The secondary school is Testbourne Community School (a 7 minute walk), which is rated Outstanding by Ofsted.
