Upper Clatford, Andover, Hampshire Sp11
A picturesque detached Grade II Listed period cottage situated in a delightful mature garden on the edge of this sought after village
An attractive detached Grade II listed period cottage, constructed of white washed rendered elevations under a thatched roof, partly rethatched in 2017 and the exterior rendering repainted. The cottage has a wealth of character with exposed beams and timbers and the accommodation comprises a sitting room with deep inglenook fireplace with door and steps into a study (which could be used as an occasional third bedroom), a kitchen/breakfast room which has been refitted and an Aga within the inglenook fireplace as well as a walk-in larder with cold shelf. From the rear lobby a door leads into a utility room housing a ‘Grant’ oil fired boiler with further door into a separate WC. To the first floor there is a master bedroom with windows on two aspects (formerly believed to have been two rooms, which could be re-instated if required), a second bedroom with attractive views over the garden and a newly fitted bathroom with white suite and shower.
Recent Improvements: Repainting of the front exterior wall; partial rethatching of the roof; refitting of the kitchen and bathroom; installation of a new ‘Grant’ oil fired condensing boiler and new oil tank; partial rewiring; new carpet in the sitting room; installation of heat and carbon monoxide detectors in the living room, kitchen and utility and smoke alarms in the loft, landing, lobby and study/bedroom three.
The property is situated on the edge of the village of Upper Clatford, which is renowned for its period cottages and has a public house, church and village hall. Everyday necessities can be purchased at the Post Office/store in the neighbouring villages of Goodworth Clatford. Andover, approximately 1½ miles away, offers a comprehensive range of shopping, educational and leisure facilities, as well as a mainline railway station providing fast services to Waterloo. The A303 is close at hand allowing convenient road access to London and the West Country.
