Dunley, Whitchurch, Hampshire Rg28

3 bedrooms

A well presented detached house with approaching three acres, a barn/coach house and stables, quietly situated in the highly sought after hamlet of Dunley with easy access to the A34 as well as fabulous walking and out-riding.

Property Details


A detached chalet style house, built during the 1960s, providing well-presented light and airy accommodation standing in an attractively landscaped garden with an integral garage and spa/swim trainer pool with fully opening canopy.  The gardens, grounds and paddocks amount to about 2.83 acres (see enclosed plan) and also include a small stable block and detached barn/cart house.  Few opportunities arise to buy a property in Dunley.  Poplar Cottage is situated at the end of a select group of residential properties that together own and enjoy access to a six acre paddock which extends to the front of the neighbouring dwellings and was purchased some years ago to preserve the idyllic rural setting and views.


The property is situated in the rural hamlet of Dunley within the North Wessex Downs, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, just 3 miles north of the town of Whitchurch which has local shops and junior and secondary schooling as well as a mainline railway station providing fast services to London Waterloo in just under one hour.  Andover is 10 miles to the west.  Basingstoke (15 miles to the east) offers a comprehensive range of educational, shopping and recreational facilities and also has a mainline railway station.  The A34 is a short distance to the east, Newbury and the cathedral city of Winchester are both within approximately 20 minutes’ drive and the M3/A303 is close at hand providing good road access to London and the West Country.
