Full description

Tenure: Freehold

An impressive, classically proportioned and versatile village house set within level gardens adjoining the Pillhill Brook, in the heart of the village.

Thruxton is a small but thriving village in the north west corner of Hampshire close to the county boundary and situated just off the A303, about five miles west of the former market town of Andover. It is a picturesque village with a manor house, thatched cottages, parish church, various active and well supported clubs and a War Memorial Hall. Within walking distance The White Horse public house is in the neighbouring village of Amport. There is a local shop and garage in Weyhill where there is a farm shop. The Rosebourne garden centre on the Old Amesbury Road has a shop and restaurant.

There are primary schools at Thruxton, Amport and Appleshaw and prep school at Farleigh. Further schooling includes Godolphin, La Retraite, Cathedral School Salisbury and Winchester College and St Swithuns, Winchester.

The Pill Hill Brook runs through the village. Thruxton was almost certainly one of the four “Annes” named in the Domesday Book. The nearby A303 provides a fast link to the West Country and eastwards to the M3, M25 orbital motorway and London. Andover has a varied shopping centre with superstores and there is a regular commuter train service London Waterloo, journey time about 70 minutes.

The house is one of the hidden gems right in the heart of the village and is an impressive and flexible family house by virtue of the two staircases thereby facilitating a separate, self-contained annex if required. Detached with mellow brick and flint elevations which are partially rose and wisteria clad, the house stands within well protected and very mature, lightly wooded gardens. The house extends to just under 3,000 sq ft and there is scope to extend the kitchen at the back of the property thereby providing a kitchen/family room for those who favour that lifestyle (subject to the required consents). There is a discreet entrance which leads through to the reception hall and the classically proportioned rooms, which when coupled with the southerly aspect at the front, creates an impressive living space. The accommodation is ideal for large scale entertaining whilst also providing more intimate areas. The entrance hall provides a link between the front and rear gardens and the principal entertaining rooms are configured off the dining hall and dining room. The kitchen/breakfast room is modern, with oak units and cupboards and an adjoining breakfast area, with door to the rear garden. The conservatory is nearly full width and there is a triple aspect drawing room with deep sash windows and double doors onto the garden and terrace.

Many of the rooms enjoy an outlook over the mature and level gardens. The layout on the first floor is perfect for an extended family or for those requiring space for a nanny or teenagers, with two staircases leading to the separate landings. The principal staircase leads to a wide landing that may provide a study/reading area. The master bedroom has an en suite bathroom with shower cubicle and there are two further bedrooms and a family bathroom. There is a link from the third bedroom to the secondary staircase and landing where there are two further bedrooms and a bathroom.

The property is screened behind a high hedge to the front and the gardens are very mature, enhancing the privacy and the setting. There is an extensive gravelled drive providing parking for a large number of vehicles and access to the integral double garage.

The garden encircles the house, is level, and adjoins the Pillhill Brook (approx. 239 ft) on the western and northern boundaries. It is a joy for the current owners. A central lawn is edged by mature perennial and shrub beds with a profusion of spring bulbs creating a riot of colour and interest throughout the seasons. At the back of the house is a rose clad pergola and terrace for outdoor entertaining. None of this is apparent from the outside and is worthy of a proper investigation.
