Amport, Andover, Hampshire Sp11
A beautifully presented south facing mid terrace period cottage with a wealth of character, set well back from the lane in an elevated position affording fabulous views over the long landscaped garden to countryside beyond
A Grade II Listed period cottage, formerly two smaller cottages, constructed of colour washed elevations beneath a thatched roof. The well-presented accommodation has a wealth of character and all the principal rooms benefit from picture windows that not only provide southerly light but also afford beautiful views over the long landscaped garden and countryside opposite. The accommodation in brief comprises a sitting room with fireplace, dining room with fireplace (not currently used), new modern kitchen, inner hall (currently used as a laundry/drying area) and rear lobby. In addition there are two double bedrooms and a recently replaced ground floor bathroom. (Note: The staircase currently leads directly into bedroom two which in turn leads into the principal bedroom, however a stud partition could be erected to create a hallway, subject to any required consents).
Agent’s Note: A viewing is essential to appreciate the attractively landscaped southerly facing gardens which are a particular feature of the property and extend to about 122 feet as well as the elevated position and views.
The property is situated in the sought after village of Amport which has a reputable primary school, church and popular pub/restaurant, The Hawk, as well as the renowned Hawk Conservancy.

The mainline railway link to London is via Grateley station which is 10 minutes’ drive away (Waterloo in 75 mins) or close by in Andover (Waterloo in just over the hour).
