Stockbridge, Hampshire So20
A beautifully presented and charming period cottage situated in the heart of Stockbridge
A linked period cottage, believed to date back to around 1700 as a Hall House with timber framed elevations, brick infill and a brick encased façade with porch and bay window, beneath a clay tiled roof repaired in recent years when the chimney was rebuilt. The accommodation is well presented with a depth of character, yet a practical layout and usable living space. In addition there is a small south facing courtyard at the rear of the cottage, handsomely compensated for by the close proximity of Stockbridge Common and the Test Way. It could also be of interest that there are nearby allotments adjacent to the path leading to the Common, however we have not investigated the availability of these or the waiting list.
Stockbridge offers a broad variety of independent shops, a Post Office, hotels and bars, quality cafes and 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.
