Broughton, Stockbridge, Hampshire So20
A surprisingly spacious linked Victorian cottage offering well presented accommodation and a courtyard garden, situated in the heart of this sought after and active Hampshire village
An attached cottage, formerly one of the village shops, constructed of mainly brick elevations beneath a pitched tiled roof. The property has been improved by the present owner and is beautifully presented throughout. In brief the accommodation comprises a reception hall, sitting room with large window to the front aspect and a large kitchen/dining room with solid beech work surfaces, space for a family size table and a fireplace housing a wood burning stove. Off the kitchen there is a laundry room and lobby leading to the courtyard and a ground floor cloakroom. To the first floor there is a master bedroom with en suite shower room, a good size second bedroom with bay window overlooking the centre of Broughton, a third bedroom or study with wardrobe and book shelving, and a well equipped family bathroom. Outside to the front of the property there is a brick paviour hard standing that is used by the present owners to park a car, and a small private courtyard area to the rear providing space for a table and chairs and a barbecue.
The property is situated in the heart of the village of Broughton, which offers everyday amenities including a Post Office/store, doctor’s surgery, church, two public houses and a primary school. The picturesque town of Stockbridge is about four miles away and provides a range of shops, hotels, restaurants, churches and a secondary school. The cathedral cities of Salisbury and Winchester are some twelve and thirteen miles distant respectively. There is convenient access to London and the West Country by road (M3 and A303) and rail, with main line stations at Grateley and Winchester.
