Fox Corner, Amport, Andover, Hampshire Sp11
A well presented detached family house providing spacious accommodation including four double bedrooms featuring a stunning landscaped south facing garden enjoying open views over the immediately adjoining farmland to the west towards Quarley Hill
A well-built detached house of brick elevations under a tiled roof, one of five similar large detached houses in an exclusive rural development on the outskirts of Amport. The house is partially linked to the neighbouring property, the reception hall projects out at ground floor level and the end wall connects to the similar projection from the neighbour’s house. The spacious accommodation has been much improved by the current owners over the years who are also responsible for creating a truly breath-taking landscaped garden that extends to over a quarter of an acre. This wonderful garden and a productive kitchen garden enjoy an impressive long view over the immediately adjoining farmland and beyond towards woodland and Quarley Hill, an Iron Age Hill Fort.
The property is situated in a peaceful semi-rural location on the outskirts of the sought-after village of Amport which has a church, reputable primary school, riding stables, the renowned Hawk Conservancy and The Hawk public house, and is also surrounded by country walks. There is good access to the A303 and Grateley mainline railway station is only 5 minutes’ drive away, with trains to London Waterloo in 75 mins. A village shop and post office can be found in the nearby village of Abbotts Ann as well as Farleigh School, a leading catholic co-educational school. There is an excellent choice of private schools in the area: Cheam, St Gabriel’s, Winchester College, St Swithun’s and Pilgrims as well as Peter Symonds College in Winchester. A comprehensive range of leisure, entertainment and shopping facilities can be found in Andover (5 miles), as well as Winchester, Salisbury and Stockbridge, all within about 20 minutes’ drive.
