Abbotts Ann, Andover, Hampshire Sp11
A detached period cottage with great character and potential in need of renovation and modernisation, standing in a large plot approaching half an acre with ample off-road parking and a detached double garage
An attractive detached period cottage constructed of colour-washed elevations beneath a tiled roof with dormer windows and decorative verge boards. The property is in need of renovation and modernisation and has the considerable benefit of not being listed. There is a large level garden plot amounting to about half an acre and enjoying a good degree of privacy. Gated access off Foundry Road leads to a generous parking area and the detached double garage. The property is situated adjacent to and on the eastern side of the A343. The entrance to the driveway is located at the beginning of Foundry Road which is in fact closer to Anna Valley than Abbotts Ann.
The property is situated on the outskirts of the village of Abbotts Ann, close to Anna Valley which has a recreation ground and garden centre and farm shop. Abbotts Ann has a shop/Post Office, village hall and playing field, primary school, church and two public houses. The nearby village of Upper Clatford also has a pub, church and village hall. Andover is within a short drive and offers a comprehensive range of shopping, educational and leisure facilities as well as a mainline railway station providing fast services to London Waterloo (in just over an hour). The cathedral cities of Salisbury and Winchester are within half an hour’s drive and the A303 is close at hand allowing convenient road access to London and the West Country.
