An attractive Grade II Listed attached house providing family accommodation with character, requiring improvement and offering scope and potential for modernisation, with the benefit of a private level garden and off-road parking
A late Georgian attached Grade II listed period house, requiring improvement and offering scope and potential for modernisation, constructed of white washed elevations beneath a slate roof with attractive sash windows to the front elevation. The accommodation comprises an entrance hall, large dual aspect sitting room with fireplace and wood burning stove, a separate dining room (both with large sash windows) as well as a good size kitchen. To the first floor there are four bedrooms (two of which are good size doubles with large sash windows to the front aspect) and a family bathroom. Outside a driveway running behind the neighbouring properties gives access to a gravelled off-road parking area. The main garden extends to the rear of the house and enjoys a good degree of privacy.
The property is situated bordering the village road in the heart of the village of Hurstbourne Tarrant which has a main shop, Post Office, church, primary school, garage (for car sales only), public house, veterinary practice and tea room as well as several smaller shops. 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 town of Whitchurch has a mainline railway station providing fast services to London (Waterloo), and the A303 is close at hand allowing convenient access to London via the M3 and the West Country.
