Wherwell, Andover, Hampshire Sp11
A charming and surprisingly spacious period cottage with well presented accommodation featuring an excellent kitchen, situated in this highly regarded village with the benefit of off-road parking and an attractively landscaped south easterly facing garden
An attractive end of terrace Grade II Listed cottage, constructed of white washed elevations beneath a thatched roof. The accommodation comprises three reception rooms (two with fireplaces), a beautifully fitted oak kitchen and useful lobby/boot room. There is also a modern well fitted bathroom with separate shower on the ground floor at the foot of the stairs. To the first floor there are three double bedrooms. The main garden extends to the rear of the cottage and is south easterly facing. This narrows to a rear gate and path leading to an area of off-road parking. There is an allocated single space and it may be possible to agree an additional space/spaces if required.
We understand the property benefited from a re-thatch in 2016; the boiler is only about 3 years old and has been regularly serviced; the oil tank was recently replaced and the kitchen was refitted in 2017. There has also been a complete electrical check carried out this year as well as recently fitted carpets.
The property is situated in the village of Wherwell, a Conservation village renowned for its many period properties and riverside walks, which has a public house, hair salon and primary school. There are charming country walks nearby including one along an unspoilt lane to the fine old church, and another across a long footbridge to The Common and neighbouring village of Chilbolton. The nearby town of Andover 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 access to London and the West Country, and the cathedral cities of Winchester and Salisbury are approximately 15 minutes and 25 minutes distant respectively
