A charming end of terrace period cottage with a long rear garden backing onto a winterbourne, situated in the heart of this popular village with good local amenities within a short walk
An end of terrace period cottage believed to date back to the 1850s within a terrace of four, constructed of brick elevations under a tiled roof with the benefit of UPVC windows and doors. The property has been owned by the same family for the last 60 years and now offers an excellent opportunity for updating and remodelling, subject to obtaining any necessary consents. The property was improved approximately 15 years ago with the addition of a single storey flat roof extension to the rear to increase the size of the kitchen/dining room (also refitted at that time) as well as the installation of oil fired central heating. In brief the accommodation comprises an entrance hall, sitting room with fireplace, inner hall with shower room and cloakroom/WC, and a spacious kitchen/dining room on the ground floor, with three bedrooms to the first floor. The property benefits from a long rear garden from where there are attractive views overlooking water meadow and fields, traversed by a winterbourne at the rear boundary.
The property is situated in the heart of the village, which offers everyday facilities including a Post Office/store, primary school, church and public house, all within a short walk. The picturesque town of Stockbridge, traversed by the River Test, is just five minutes away to north and offers a variety of shops, Post Office, hotels and public houses, tea rooms/restaurants, churches, a doctors’ surgery and primary and secondary schools. The abbey town of Romsey is approximately seven miles to the south, and the cathedral cities of Salisbury and Winchester are both within a half hour drive. There are also excellent road links to London and the West Country via the M3 and A303 and also to the South Coast.
