Little Park, Abbotts Ann, Andover Sp11
An individual detached chalet style family home with spacious and characterful accommodation featuring an excellent open plan kitchen/dining room, standing on a mature third acre plot towards the end of a ‘no through’ lane on the outskirts of the village with views over the adjoining farmland
A detached chalet style property built about twenty years ago by a renowned local company, D C Li Builders, since extended by the present owners. The property stands in a third acre plot surrounded by farmland with a spacious driveway providing ample parking and leading to a well-built detached double garage. The accommodation features large living rooms, especially the triple aspect kitchen with separate dining area beneath a vaulted ceiling. There are five bedrooms (two with en suites) and a family bathroom.
The property is situated towards the end of a narrow ‘no through’ lane in a rural area surrounded by fields on the edge of the sought after village of Abbotts Ann which has an award winning Post Office/Store, primary school, two public houses, church and a nearby garden centre. The area is a haven for those who enjoy country and riverside walks, and numerous sporting pursuits can be enjoyed including golf in Longstock and Andover, horse racing at Newbury and Salisbury, polo at Tidworth, motor racing at Thruxton, sailing on the Solent, and fishing on the celebrated River Test. The picturesque town of Stockbridge is about eight miles. Andover (3 miles) offers a comprehensive range of shopping, leisure and educational facilities, as well as a mainline railway station providing fast services to Waterloo. The A303 is close at hand allowing convenient access to London and the West Country, and the cathedral cities of Salisbury and Winchester are both within a half hour drive.
SCHOOLING AND RECREATION There is excellent schooling (private and state) in the area. In addition to the primary school in Abbotts Ann, Farleigh Preparatory School is also situated on the edge of the village; Kings and Peter Symonds Sixth Form College are located in Winchester and there are Grammar Schools in Salisbury.
