Ox Drove, Picket Piece, Andover, Hampshire Sp11
A beautifully presented and surprisingly spacious modern detached family house with open plan living, four double bedrooms, a single garage and well enclosed rear garden featuring a sunken terrace and fire pit
A recently built detached house with brick elevations beneath a tiled roof and the benefit of ample parking and a single garage. The beautifully presented accommodation comprises a large central reception hall with cloakroom, dual aspect living room, study and an excellent open plan kitchen/dining room with granite work tops and integrated appliances opening into a separate sitting area with bi-folding doors leading into the main garden. There is also a utility room on the ground floor. To the first floor there is principal bedroom with luxury en suite shower room, three further double bedrooms, each with built-in wardrobe cupboards, and a good size family bathroom. Additional benefits include underfloor heating throughout the ground floor which is predominantly oak. The present owners have made considerable improvements within the well enclosed rear garden which now features a stylish sunken sandstone terrace with built-in seating surrounding a fire pit.
The property is situated off a private drive serving just two other properties just off Ox Drove, a country lane on the outskirts of Picket Piece, a semi-rural area on the eastern outskirts of Andover and within a short distance of 24 hr supermarkets and a good selection of out-of-town stores. The area benefits from a village hall, the popular Finkley Down Farm complex, a Commercial Centre with garden centre and Post Office as well as the Wyke Down pub (all within a short walk) and a bus service. Andover offers a comprehensive range of shopping, educational, medical and leisure facilities, including a newly constructed Leisure Centre as well as a mainline railway station providing fast services to Waterloo in just over the hour. The A303 is close at hand allowing convenient access to London and the West Country and the picturesque town of Stockbridge, traversed by the renowned River Test, is approximately 9 miles away. The cathedral cities of Winchester and Salisbury are both within 30 minutes’ drive, as is Basingstoke.
Agent’s Note: The property is situated within 1.5 mile of the North Wessex Downs, an extensive and stunning Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty providing excellent walking and cycling and a great choice of pubs and restaurants.
