Chattis Hill, Stockbridge, Hampshire So20
An excellent mews style three bedroom period house together with two garages and a landscaped low maintenance garden within an exclusive development situated just 1.5 miles to the west of Stockbridge High Street
A recently modernised well-appointed and tastefully presented house within an exclusive development, originally a Victorian stable block and associated buildings forming part of the historic Stockbridge Race Course (1775-1898) which was converted into eleven dwellings in 1989. The Race Course was closed in 1898 due to part of the land being inherited by Marianne Vaundry who strongly disapproved of gambling and refused to renew the lease. The accommodation comprises a reception hall with cloakroom incorporating a laundry area, drawing room with inset Di Lusso wood burner, dining room and stylish new kitchen all featuring elegant high ceilings. There is also a recently constructed quality conservatory overlooking the level landscaped rear garden. To the first floor there is a master bedroom with recently replaced en suite bathroom, two further double bedrooms and a family shower room (also recently replaced). The property also benefits from double glazing throughout and two separate large garages, communal tennis courts and attractive garden areas.
Chattis Hill Stables occupies a wonderful location on high ground approximately one and a half miles west of Stockbridge, surrounded by farmland. Stockbridge offers a variety of shops including a delicatessen, Post Office, hotel, public houses, wine bar, restaurant, churches, doctors’ surgery, regular bus services and primary and secondary schools. The cathedral cities of Salisbury and Winchester and the abbey town of Romsey are all within a twenty minute drive, and the A303 is close at hand allowing convenient access to London and the West Country. There are also mainline railway stations in Winchester and Andover (both about fifteen minutes’ drive away) as well as Grateley (about ten minutes’ drive) with fast trains to Waterloo.
