Property Details

DESCRIPTION

Formerly a farm cottage, this period property is constructed of brick elevations under a slate roof and was significantly remodelled and extended in 2011.  The well appointed and characterful accommodation comprises an entrance hall, living room with wood burning stove and French doors opening onto the garden, separate study/play room and a magnificent hand-built farmhouse kitchen with central island and an adjoining dining room (also with fireplace and wood burning stove) as well as a utility and cloakroom.  To the first floor there is a master bedroom with open country views and en suite shower room, four further bedrooms and a family bathroom.  It is worth noting that the substantial loft area could lend itself for conversion into additional accommodation, if required (STPP).  Outside the house is set back from a quiet narrow lane with ample off-road parking.  The main garden extends to the rear of the property with the benefit of a large patio, detached home office/studio and long private lawn backing onto farmland.


LOCATION

The rural hamlet of Norton is situated in the Dever Valley between Upper Bullington and Sutton Scotney, just south of the A303 and north of the cathedral city of Winchester. There is excellent road access north and south via the A34, easy access to London and the West Country via the M3/A303, and mainline railway stations at Whitchurch, Micheldever Station or Winchester with fast services to London Waterloo (in about one hour).  Whilst there are local amenities available in Sutton Scotney and Micheldever, Winchester, Salisbury and Basingstoke offer a much broader range of recreational, cultural and shopping facilities, as well as a number of private and state primary and secondary schools within easy reach (Farleigh, Winchester College, Pilgrims, Peter Symonds, Cheam, St Swithuns).   Norton Manor Hotel offers excellent facilities including a swimming pool, gym, sauna, bar and restaurant.
