Whitchurch, Hampshire Rg28
A unique extended bungalow offering spacious light and airy accommodation with elegant reception rooms standing within private grounds amounting to about 0.41 acres featuring beautifully landscaped gardens
An interesting single storey residence providing versatile accommodation with the current long term owners choosing to have three bedrooms including a luxury master bedroom suite with master bathroom and its own drawing room, all with vaulted ceilings. However we consider the property could easily be converted into a four bedroom dwelling either by converting the drawing room into a fourth bedroom or converting the dining area into a bedroom with an adjacent wet room. We think it is likely however, that the buyer would favour moving the wet room from the living/dining room to create a spacious main reception room. The gardens and privacy are a salient feature and viewing is essential to appreciate this property. There could also be scope for further enlargement or development of the site (STPP).
The property is situated on the norther edge of the popular sought-after town of Whitchurch which offers a comprehensive range of amenities and a mainline railway station within a ten minute walk (London Waterloo in one hour). There is good access to Newbury, Basingstoke, Winchester and Andover (all within a 30 minute drive) as well as excellent road links to London, the Midlands, the South Coast and the West Country via the A34, M3 and A303. Whitchurch also offers primary and secondary schooling however there is also an excellent choice of private schools in the area: Farleigh, Cheam, St Gabriel’s, Winchester College, St Swithun’s and Pilgrims to name a few, as well as Peter Symonds College in Winchester.
