Property Details

DESCRIPTION

An attractive individual detached house that has been extended and completely remodelled by the present owners who have happily resided at the property for many years.  The property stands in a quiet elevated position enjoying far reaching views to the north over countryside and towards woodland. A particular feature is the outstanding well established landscaped garden which enjoys a good degree of privacy and seclusion.  The well-presented and characterful accommodation comprises an entrance hall and cloakroom, reception hall with fireplace, dual aspect living room (also with fireplace), formal dining room with bay window, well fitted split-level kitchen/breakfast room with Aga, utility and second cloakroom.  To the first floor there are four good size bedrooms, an en suite shower room and large bathroom.  Additional benefits include a large garage/workshop with wood store, a garden shed/workshop, off road parking, attractive sash windows and oil fired central heating with radiators.

LOCATION

The property enjoys an enviable elevated position off Chapel and Mount Lane, a quiet narrow lane about 2.5k (1.5 miles) long serving a small selection of larger country homes on the outskirts of Lockerley which has a local store, garage, primary school, church and village hall, with a railway station at nearby Dunbridge.   There is also a village shop and Post Office just half a mile away on Branches Lane, and the Hatchett pub in Sherfield English is also close by.  The Abbey town of Romsey, approximately six miles away, provides a comprehensive range of shopping, educational (state and private schools) and recreational facilities, as well as a railway station. The cathedral cities of Winchester and Salisbury are within 25 minutes’ drive and there is also good access onto the M27 and to Southampton.
