Property Details

DESCRIPTION

An extended detached period house constructed of mainly off white original cob walls and smooth rendered elevations, show casing many period features throughout the property.  The property is believed in part to date back to the early 1800s, although it should be noted it has the benefit of not being Listed.  

The beautifully presented and stylish accommodation has recently been significantly upgraded and extended and now comprises an entrance hall/boot room and cloakroom, large drawing room with Bath Stone fireplace and wood burning stove, dining room with arch into a snug area (currently used as a stylish ‘Gin Bar’), separate study, sitting/play room, stunning kitchen with substantial island, Aga and oak/glazed elevation overlooking the gardens, as well as a separate utility room.  To the first floor the master bedroom has a vaulted ceiling and picture window overlooking the gardens, as well as a free-standing bath and shower room; there is also a guest bedroom with en suite shower room, three further bedrooms and a family bathroom.

Within the grounds there is the additional benefit of a single garage and also a triple aspect summer house/studio overlooking the river (ideal for those working or consulting from home). The gardens are a particular feature of the property with approximately 125’ frontage to the Pill Hill Brook and fishing rights.

LOCATION

The property is situated on the edge of the village of Upper Clatford and Anna Valley beside a village green and play area.  Upper Clatford has a public house, church and village hall, and everyday necessities can be purchased at the Post Office/store in the neighbouring village 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.
