Goodworth Clatford, Andover, Hampshire Sp11
An extended detached timber frame/cedar clad bungalow providing spacious light and airy accommodation standing in a stunning mature garden that extends to over three quarters of an acre with a south westerly aspect tucked away in a rural position with a long gated driveway that serves just 2 properties. Great scope and potential for enlargement/replacement (STPP)
A detached colt style bungalow that has been extended in recent years. This property has a particularly special tucked away position, an electric gate gives access to a long drive that leads to Northcot and its neighbour where there is plenty of off road parking, a former garage has been converted into a home office/workroom. The excellent plot that extends to 0.79 is level and has the benefit of a south westerly aspect, long lawns are broken up with an interesting variety of mature trees and well stocked flower borders and there is an attractive terrace with water features to either side. This property may certainly appeal to couples downsizing and keen on gardening or equally may appeal to families looking for an opportunity to build a larger dwelling if it were possible to obtain the necessary consent, however this cannot be guaranteed.
The property is situated in the outskirts of the sought-after village of Goodworth Clatford, with its renowned riverside walks. The village has a Post Office/store, church, C of E primary school (rated Outstanding), village hall, two public houses and an active tennis club. The excellent Farleigh School is only 2.5 miles away and Rookwood School is within 10 minutes’ drive. 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.
