High Street, Stockbridge, Hampshire So20
A rare opportunity to acquire a linked period cottage offering characterful well presented accommodation and walled courtyard style garden, quietly situated behind the High Street in the very heart of Stockbridge with all amenities within a short level walk
A linked period cottage constructed of cream rendered elevations beneath a slate roof. The characterful accommodation comprises an entrance porch leading into a good size kitchen with Aga and adjoining conservatory, long sitting room with separate dining area and an inner hall with stairs rising to the first floor. The principal bedroom benefits from a walk-in wardrobe and large storage cupboard, whilst bedroom two could easily accommodate a double bed. There is also a good size well-fitted bathroom. The secluded courtyard style garden which is located at the front of the property is designed for easy maintenance and comprises sandstone and gravel areas with two brick planters, all enclosed by high brick walling affording a great degree of privacy. There is potential to replace the conservatory with an interesting extension (subject to obtaining the required consents).
The property is quietly situated set back from the High Street in the centre of the town within a short walk of all local amenities as well as the Test Way and National Trust Common with walks next to the River Test. Stockbridge offers a broad variety of independent shops, a Post Office, hotels and bars, delis/restaurants, churches, a doctors’ surgery, dentist and primary and secondary schools. The cathedral cities of Salisbury and Winchester and the abbey town of Romsey are all within a twenty minute drive, and the A303 is close at hand allowing convenient access to London and the West Country. There are also mainline railway stations in Winchester and Andover (both about fifteen minutes’ drive away) as well as Grateley (about ten minutes’ drive) with fast trains to Waterloo.
