Goodworth Clatford, Andover, Hampshire Sp11
An attractive end of terrace cottage featuring an open plan kitchen with living/dining area, separate sitting room and two/three bedrooms together with a useful outbuilding comprising home office/studio and store with a large professionally landscaped rear garden set in the heart of the village
An end-of-terrace period cottage with a particularly attractive brick and flint façade set in the heart of village and within a short walk of the shop/Post Office and pubs. The characterful accommodation comprises a cosy sitting room with log burning stove, open plan kitchen with adjoining living/dining area, also with log burning stove. A stable door opens onto a raised deck and the gardens. On the first floor there are two/three bedrooms, en suite shower room and main bathroom. The cottage also benefits from timber frame double glazed windows throughout. Outside immediately behind the cottage is a former garage/outbuilding, the front section was retained as store. The larger rear section has been fully insulated, plastered and decorated and offers excellent scope as a home office, studio or cinema room (broadband connected). The surprisingly large garden has been professionally landscaped and is impressively stocked with an abundance of flowers, shrubs and trees.
The property is situated in the heart of the sought-after village of Goodworth Clatford, with its renowned riverside walks. The village has a Post Office/store, church, primary school (currently rated Outstanding), village hall, two public houses and an active tennis club. There is also an 18 hole golf course and large garden centre nearby, as well as the renowned Longstock Water Gardens (owned by the John Lewis Partnership) with its farm shop and tea rooms. Andover, about two miles distant, offers a more comprehensive range of shopping, educational and leisure facilities, as well as a mainline railway station providing fast services to Waterloo in just over the hour. The A303 is close at hand allowing convenient access to London and the West Country and the picturesque town of Stockbridge, traversed by the celebrated River Test, is approximately five miles away. The cathedral cities of Winchester and Salisbury are both within 30 minutes’ drive as is Basingstoke.
