Appleshaw, Andover, Hampshire Sp11
A classic period house of great charm and character with a brick and flint outbuilding offering potential for conversion (STPP) and a beautiful south westerly facing walled garden quietly situated on the edge of this popular village
A charming Grade II Listed late 18th Century house, partially linked at the front to a neighbouring period property, constructed of mainly cream washed brick elevations beneath an attractive clay tiled roof. The accommodation comprises a good size drawing room overlooking the rear garden, sitting room with inglenook and wood burner, dining room featuring a large bay window (both with oak floors), an inner hall/study with adjoining WC and a kitchen/breakfast room with oil fired Aga, pantry and side lobby leading onto the driveway. To the first floor, off staircase one there is a landing, master bedroom with en suite shower room, two further bedrooms and a family bathroom. A separate staircase from the drawing room leads up to a guest bedroom with en suite bathroom.
Outside there is off-road parking and a useful brick and flint outbuilding (beneath a slate roof) which currently provides a garage/store, utility and large boarded loft room/home office – ideal for conversion into a self-contained annexe/B&B (STPP) if required. The house has the tremendous benefit of a secluded south westerly facing walled garden that is attractively landscaped.
The property is situated in the picturesque village of Appleshaw which has a fine old church, primary school, playing fields, village hall and public house/restaurant. Andover, approximately four miles away, offers a comprehensive range of shopping, educational and leisure facilities as well as a mainline railway station with extensive parking providing fast services to Waterloo (65 minutes). The A303 is close at hand allowing convenient access to London and the West Country.
