4 bedroom house for saleChilbolton, Stockbridge, Hampshire
A detached family house with an outstanding kitchen and adjoining conservatory tucked away on the edge of the village close to West Down in the Test valley
The village of Chilbolton lies deep in the Test valley between Stockbridge and Andover, surrounded by wonderful countryside close to the dramatic rolling downland typical of the area. Drove Hill stands at the top of Drove Road right on the edge of the village close to West Down, excellent for dog walking and provides a wealth of open countryside. This in turn leads back through to the Test Way, the River Test and the Mayfly Public House. West Down is a haven for wildlife and an area for childrens adventure. In the centre of the village where the River Test runs through, there is further open countryside at Cow Common with its beautiful water meadows and riverside walks, which link through to Wherwell and Harewood Forest.
The pretty Georgian country town of Stockbridge lies 3 miles to the west, with its good range of local amenities and schools. There is a primary school in the neighbouring village of Wherwell and further primary and secondary schooling at Stockbridge. It is ideally placed for the large centres of Andover, Winchester and Salisbury with good road communications, access to the A303 to the north, the A34 and M3, and there are mainline railway services at Andover and Winchester, both to London Waterloo.
Drove Hill enjoys a high ground setting on the Downs, on the edge of the highly-regarded village of Chilbolton within the Test Valley. The true extent is not apparent from outside as the current owners have enhanced the property significantly by creating a showpiece kitchen with family room and breakfast area based around handmade French kitchen units to create an important hub for the family and for entertaining. The extensive built in cupboards and units have integrated appliances and include an instant hot tap, long breakfast bar and induction hob. Separate dining area and cabling for a music system and games console, with a door leading through to the utility room, study and the outstanding conservatory on the south western side with doors leading into the enclosed garden. The whole combines to create a wonderful contemporary space which contrasts with the intimate entertaining rooms. The sitting room has an open fireplace, doors leading onto the garden and there is an adjoining dining room.
On the first floor there are four bedrooms. The principal bedroom has a recently installed contemporary shower room, and there are extensive built in mirror fronted wardrobes. There are three further bedrooms, one has an adjoining dressing area/study room, ideal for a teenager.
There is also a family bathroom.
Attached to the property is a garage with internal access which also houses the oil tank. In many respects this is a family house full of surprises.
The property is well set back on Drove Hill and has mature gardens set within tall hedges. There is off road parking for several vehicles.
The main garden adjoins the terrace, sitting room, dining room and conservatory and provides a private level area. The terraces are designed for alfresco living and there is a mature private area on the west side.
