Monxton, Andover, Hampshire Sp11
A most impressive detached period family house providing stunning accommodation with tremendous character and a stylish well-appointed finish together with a beautiful detached party barn incorporating luxury ancillary accommodation, both sharing a professionally landscaped walled garden, quietly situated on the edge of the village
A large detached Grade II Listed family house with mainly rendered elevations beneath a thatched roof. The property was originally built as a large outbuilding/stables and has the huge benefit of high ceilings and large windows throughout. The present owners have professionally renovated and re-modelled the interior to provide beautiful family accommodation with good living space and four bedrooms. The owners have also converted a large detached Grade II Listed barn into a simply stunning entertaining area featuring an open plan living area with impressive vaulted ceiling, limestone flooring and a concealed kitchen. Additionally there are two double bedrooms sharing a luxury bathroom. Above there is a large mezzanine with frameless glass balcony that has been used as a home office.
Agent’s Note: The present owners have generated a considerable income and enviable reputation by occasionally letting the barn to holiday makers (via Home Away & AirBnB) – the reviews speak for themselves.
The property is situated in a quiet lane just off the centre of the sought after village of Monxton, well known for its many period and thatched properties. Monxton is a Conservation Area and has a village hall and church. There is an excellent public house within close walking distance (The Hawk) and Amport School, one of Hampshire’s leading primary schools in the adjacent village of Amport as well as two public houses and an award winning village shop/post office in Abbotts Ann, two miles away. 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 Waterloo in just over one hour. There is also a railway station in the neighbouring village of Grateley, approximately five minutes’ drive away. 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.
