Monxton, Andover, Hampshire Sp11
A picturesque semi-detached period cottage situated in the heart of the village with gardens backing onto the Pill Hill Brook
A charming Grade II listed semi-detached period cottage which has been extended in recent years and constructed of white washed brick and flint elevations and brick to the rear, beneath a thatched roof. We understand that the cottage is believed to have once been a cobbler’s shop and has many period features including an inglenook fireplace and numerous exposed beams and framework. The accommodation comprises a sitting room with fine feature fireplace with inset log burning stove, separate dining room, large farmhouse size kitchen/breakfast room with an extensive range of units with stable door into the garden. To the first floor there are three bedrooms and a bathroom. The garden is an attractive feature of the property and runs down to the Pill Hill brook.
Recent Improvements include: New hot water tank installed in 2014; re-thatching of the back of the cottage in 2017; electrical inspection carried out and a new consumer unit installed in 2017.
The cottage is situated in the heart of the village of Monxton, a Conservation Area, which has a village hall and church. There is an excellent public house, ‘The Hawk’ just a short walk away in the adjacent village of Amport, which also has a reputable primary school. The nearby village of Abbotts Ann has an award winning shop/Post office and two public houses, whilst the 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. There is also a railway station in the neighbouring village of Grateley, just a few 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.
