Property Details


A Grade II Listed detached period cottage, built in 1747, constructed of mainly white washed elevations beneath a thatched roof with a single storey extension to one end beneath a slate roof.  The cottage has been recently updated by the current owners and comprises a reception hall, large dual aspect sitting room with deep inglenook fireplace and wood burning stove, separate dining room with open entrances into a bespoke fitted kitchen with solid oak work surfaces and range style cooker.  Also on the ground floor there is a separate study/occasional bedroom three.  On the first floor there are two generous double bedrooms and a good size main bathroom.  Outside the property has the benefit of off road parking leading to a detached single garage.  The attractive mature gardens and grounds amount to approaching a quarter of an acre and are well enclosed by dwarf capped walling, mature hedging and trees.


The cottage is situated in the heart of the sought after village of Monxton, a Conservation Area, which has a village hall and church.  There is a reputable junior school in the adjacent village of Amport as well as a church and the popular ‘Hawk’ pub.  The nearby village of Abbotts Ann also has a junior school, two pubs, church and award winning village shop.  The nearby town of Andover offers a comprehensive range of shopping, educational and leisure facilities, as well as a mainline railway station providing fast access to London Waterloo in just over one hour.  There is also a railway station in the village of Grateley, just 3.5 miles away, with regular trains to Waterloo in 75 mins.  The A303 is close at hand allowing convenient access to the West Country and London, and the cathedral cities of Salisbury and Winchester are both within approximately twenty five minutes’ drive.
