Stockbridge, Hampshire So20
An attractive period cottage that has recently been tastefully modernised, set well back from the road in a quiet gated area on the south side of the High Street in the heart of Stockbridge.
A mid terrace period cottage, one of just three, constructed of attractive brick/flint/smooth rendered elevations beneath a slate roof with traditionally styled UPVC double glazed windows and new remotely controlled electric radiators. The property has recently been tastefully modernised. The compact accommodation comprises a sitting room with fireplace and wood burning stove and a well fitted kitchen with space for a small corner dining table. To the first floor there are two bedrooms and a bathroom. Outside there is a private area of well enclosed garden immediately to the front of the cottage which is mainly laid to lawn with a patio area.
The property is situated along a private gated pathway, set well back from the High Street and close The Common providing walks next to the River Test, and yet also within a short level walk of all local amenities. Stockbridge offers a broad variety of independent shops, a Post Office, hotels and bars, tea rooms/restaurants, churches, a doctors’ surgery and primary and secondary schools. The cathedral cities of Salisbury and Winchester and the abbey town of Romsey are all within a twenty minute drive, and the A303 is close at hand allowing convenient access to London and the West Country. There are also mainline railway stations in Winchester and Andover (both about fifteen minutes’ drive away) as well as Grateley (about ten minutes’ drive) with fast trains to Waterloo.
