A beautifully presented semi-detached character cottage with the benefit of an attractively landscaped southerly facing rear garden, just four miles from Stockbridge
A semi-detached period character cottage constructed of smooth rendered white washed elevations beneath a slate roof. Presently there is planning permission for a single storey side and rear extension if required, ref. TVBC ref 14/02396/FULLN. The beautifully presented accommodation comprises a large reception hall with parquet flooring, cloakroom/utility area, separate sitting and dining rooms situated either side of a dual aspect fireplace with wood burning stove (both with southerly facing windows overlooking the main garden). There is also a well fitted kitchen with integrated appliances and oak work surfaces. To the first floor there are three bedrooms and a good size family bathroom. Outside there is ample parking to the front of the property. The main garden which lies to the rear of the property, has been attractively landscaped for easy maintenance and enjoys a southerly aspect.
The property is situated in an area known as Kentsboro which is on the edge of the Wallops and within level walking distance of a newly built petrol station and excellent Budgens store. The Iron Age Danebury Hill Fort is also close by, for those who enjoy walking, and the picturesque town of Stockbridge (approximately four miles distant) offers a variety of facilities including shops, hotels, public houses, churches, doctor’s surgery and primary and secondary school.
