Property Details

DESCRIPTION

A charming Grade II Listed character cottage, situated in the very heart of this popular village, constructed of part brick and flint/part white washed elevations, mainly beneath a thatched roof with a single storey extension under slate to the front.  The accommodation, which benefits from good ceiling height throughout, has been tastefully improved by the present owners to a high standard and comprises a useful entrance hall, sitting room, dining hall and family room, all with attractive fireplaces and limestone flooring, as well as a well fitted ‘John Lewis of Hungerford’ kitchen.  To the first floor there are three large double bedrooms and whilst access to bedroom three is currently through the second bedroom, it would be possible to create a passageway to reinstate three separate bedrooms. There is a beautifully fitted bathroom on the ground floor, located near the foot of the stairs and we also believe there is scope and potential to create a small shower room for the master bedroom in the large wardrobe/void beside the chimney breast (any suggested alterations would be subject to obtaining the required consents).  

A particular feature of this property is the superb landscaped south easterly facing garden and a substantial detached double garage with a separate adjoining workshop/office.


LOCATION

The cottage is situated in 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 a reputable primary school 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.
