Anna Valley, Andover, Hampshire Sp11
An exciting opportunity to acquire a substantial individual five bedroom family house offering scope for improvement and restyling, standing in an excellent plot extending to about 0.44 acres, with the rear garden running down to the Pill Hill brook
NO ONWARD CHAIN
A substantial detached 1960s house comprising comprehensive spacious family accommodation which is light and airy throughout. The property has the benefit of double glazing but whilst habitable it requires modernisation and offers great scope and potential for re-styling and re-modelling. Dale House stands in a large well enclosed plot extending to 0.44 acres with the attractive benefit of the rear boundary bordering the Pill Hill Brook, a chalk stream and tributary of the River Test. It is also worth noting that the plot falls within the settlement boundary of Anna Valley and it may therefore be possible to develop the site further, perhaps with an additional separate dwelling in the rear garden (subject to obtaining all the required consents) however there is by no means any guarantee that this could be possible.
The property is situated on the edge of Anna Valley which has a recreation ground and garden centre nearby. Upper Clatford is within a short walk and has a pub, church and village hall. The neighbouring village of Abbotts Ann has an award winning shop/Post Office, village hall and playing field, primary school, church and two public houses. Andover, some 1½ miles to the north, offers a comprehensive range of shopping, educational and leisure facilities as well as a mainline railway station providing fast services to London Waterloo (in just over an hour). The cathedral cities of Salisbury and Winchester are within half an hour’s drive and the A303 is close at hand allowing convenient road access to London and the West Country.
