Broughton, Stockbridge, Hampshire So20
This beautifully presented and charming detached Edwardian property has been a perfect family home, and there's little doubt that it would be for yours too.
Located in a tranquil, secluded spot within the highly sought after village of Broughton, Pippins maintains many of its original character features, whilst enjoying some tasteful and high quality renovation and remodelling, including a brand new Masterclass kitchen. There's no doubt that the new owners will be able to equally enjoy the beautiful new kitchen/breakfast room, the three excellent reception rooms, a conservatory and four light and airy bedrooms, the master having an en suite. And the enjoyment isn't confined to the inside of the property either - glance out of the front bedroom windows and see the swans, ducks and heron paddling along the stunning Wallop Brook, or relax in the secluded south westerly facing rear garden. The house is situated on the quieter southern side of the village whilst still being within a short walk of the village centre. It is no wonder that Pippins is named as a property of local interest in the Broughton Character Appraisal document. The current owners have loved living here, and we know that whoever owns this house next will love it too.
The property is quietly situated off Horsebridge Road on the southern side of the village of Broughton, which offers everyday amenities including a Post Office/store, doctors’ surgery, village hall, church, public house, Thai restaurant/second pub and a primary school. Situated on the Clarendon Way footpath, there is excellent walking in the surrounding countryside and on the renowned Broughton Down. The picturesque town of Stockbridge is about 4 miles away and provides a range of shops, hotels, restaurants, churches and a secondary school. The cathedral cities of Winchester and Salisbury are 12 and 13 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.
