Hurstbourne Tarrant, Andover, Hampshire Sp11

A spacious detached five double bedroom period family house with a beautifully landscaped quarter acre walled garden and superb views from the upper garden, situated in the heart of this extremely popular village with excellent local facilities


A large individual detached period house being offered to the market for the first time in over 40 years with great scope and potential for restyling by its new owners.  It is worth noting that the property is not Listed.  The spacious accommodation is complimented by a large utility/boot room at the rear linking the house to the barn room which is currently used as a workshop, but has potential to be incorporated into the living space creating a large kitchen/dining/family room.  There are five large bedrooms on the first floor, two with en suite bathrooms, and a separate family shower room (formerly a bathroom).  Additional benefits include a gated driveway for parking and secure detached double garage.  A particular feature of this excellent family house is the stunning walled landscaped rear garden that slopes gently up to the rear boundary where there is gated access out onto a footpath and the Test Way, as well as beautiful views back towards the house and across the Bourne Valley.


The property is situated in the heart of the friendly and lively village of Hurstbourne Tarrant with excellent local amenities including a store, church, primary school, garage (for car sales only), public house with restaurant and rooms, veterinary practice and tea room.  The school and hall are both within a short walk along Church Street.  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.
