The accommodation comprises a large dual aspect sitting room with fine inglenook fireplace, separate dining room leading through to a kitchen with ‘Rangemaster’, a study/bedroom four and ground floor cloakroom. To the first floor there is an excellent principal bedroom suite with dressing area and en suite shower room, two further double bedrooms and a recently refitted shower room. Outside there is the benefit of off-road parking to either end of the cottage and a detached garage/workshop. The well-stocked rear garden has been attractively landscaped featuring a wildlife pond and recently created kitchen garden at the rear boundary.
The cottage is situated in the heart of the village of Monxton, a Conservation Area, which has a public house, village hall and church. There is a railway station in the neighbouring village of Grateley (London Waterloo in 1 hour 15 minutes) as well as a shop/post office, just a few minutes’ drive away. The nearby town of Andover offers a comprehensive range of shopping, educational and leisure facilities, as well as a mainline railway station also providing fast access to Waterloo. 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.
