A spacious four bedroom link-detached family house with an adjoining self-contained ground floor annexe offering great scope for improvement, standing within a good size level garden, quietly situated at the end of a well established Close
An extended link-detached four bedroom house with an adjoining self-contained ground floor annexe, off-road parking and single garage (which is the only part of the property linked to the neighbouring house). The property has the benefit of double glazing and recently installed air source heat pump central heating, however the house as a whole is in need of updating and redecoration. The accommodation comprises a reception hall, large living room with wood burning stove, dining room, family room and kitchen. To the first floor there is a master bedroom with en suite, three further bedrooms and a family bathroom. From the reception hall a door leads into the self-contained ground floor annexe which has a large living room/bedroom, bathroom and a kitchen which is in need of updating. Adjoining the house there is a single garage and parking for one or two cars on the driveway. The good size front and rear gardens are laid to level lawn and well enclosed.
The property is quietly situated at the end of the Close in a popular residential area in Chilbolton which has a Post Office/store, church, village hall and public house. A second public house ‘The Mayfly’ sits on the bank of the River Test within walking distance. There are many charming walks from the door to West down and Chilbolton Common – a designated Area of Special Scientific Interest and a renowned local beauty spot particularly noted for its rich flora and traversed by the River Test. West Down, also a short walk away, is ideal for dog walking. There is a reputable primary school in the neighbouring village of Wherwell, about 1½ miles away and Stockbridge 4 miles. Andover (4 miles) offers a comprehensive range of shopping, educational and leisure facilities, as well as a mainline railway station providing fast services to Waterloo. The cathedral cities of Winchester and Salisbury are about 15 and 25 minutes’ drive respectively, and the A303 is close at hand allowing convenient access to London and the West Country
