Hurstbourne Tarrant, Andover, Hampshire Sp11
An attractive linked period house that has been extended over the years with a good sized south westerly facing garden, garage and off-road parking offering tremendous scope and potential for modernisation and potential further extension (STPP)
A semi-detached Grade II Listed period house constructed of brick and flint elevations beneath a tiled roof with a later extension beneath a shallow profile felt roof. The accommodation comprises a reception hall with cloakroom, large sitting room with fireplace, living/dining room with fireplace and kitchen/breakfast room. To the first floor there are four bedrooms (three of which are doubles) and a bathroom. Outside the property benefits from a good size well enclosed south westerly facing garden located at the side of the property. There is also an old outbuilding/workshop and a generous off-road parking area with pre-fab garage.
Agent’s Note This charming home was acquired by the current family in the early 1980s. It is thought to date back to the early 1800s with a late Victorian side extension and later rear additions. The property is in dated condition throughout and requires modernisation. There is scope for further extension and replacement of the pre-fab garage block with potential to create ancillary accommodation.
The property is situated in the heart of the village of Hurstbourne Tarrant which has a store, church, primary school, garage (for car sales only), public house with restaurant and rooms, veterinary practice and tea room. There are bus services to Newbury (about 10½ miles) and Andover (about 6 miles), where a more comprehensive range of shopping, educational and leisure facilities can be found. The nearby towns of Whitchurch and Andover have mainline railway stations providing fast services to London (Waterloo) as well as Newbury, and the A303 is close at hand allowing convenient access to London via the M3 and to the West Country.
