Hurstbourne Tarrant, Andover, Hampshire Sp11
A detached two bedroom period cottage with off-road parking and a south westerly facing courtyard garden set in the heart of this popular village within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty
Marble Arch Cottage is a detached period cottage of considerable character, dating back to early 1800 situated in a popular village, with fantastic amenities and a Primary School (Ofsted outstanding). The property is separate from its neighbours and has its own private brick paved driveway offering parking for two cars and a low maintenance south-westerly facing rear courtyard garden which is perfect for alfresco eating and barbeques. The cottage offers well planned accommodation, arranged over two floors, with numerous features including a large inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove, exposed bread oven, and a wealth of original exposed timbers throughout. However this property does allow every modern convenience, being recently sympathetically and extensively renovated throughout, retaining many of the original features but bringing the house up to high standard and offering a lovely and comfortable 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.
