Chilbolton, Stockbridge, Hampshire So20
A large individual detached bungalow with spacious accommodation and elegant reception rooms together with a detached tandem garage, adjoining rooms and wc, standing in over a quarter of an acre of attractive mature gardens with distant views over the Test Valley
A spacious detached bungalow with rendered elevations beneath a tiled roof together with a detached tandem garage with adjoining study, work room and cloakroom which could potentially be converted into ancillary accommodation, if required (subject to any consents). The bungalow itself is light and airy and comprises a reception hall and cloakroom, three spacious reception rooms, kitchen, large master bedroom with en suite, two further double bedrooms and a bathroom with separate shower. Whilst perfectly habitable, the property offers considerable scope for improvement, reconfiguration or extension (subject to planning consent). The plot extends to over a quarter of an acre, the main garden extending from the rear of the property which has the benefit of both great privacy and distant views over the Test Valley. There is also a kitchen garden and wine cellar.
The property is situated in a favoured residential area on the edge of this popular village. Chilbolton 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 and is within walking distance, as is the Test Way. 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, approximately 1½ miles away, and the picturesque town of Stockbridge is some four miles distant. Andover, also four miles away, 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.
