East Cholderton, Andover, Hampshire Sp11
A substantial detached family house set back from the lane approached via a long driveway with gardens and grounds of just over 1.5 acres featuring large lawns and beautiful mature trees
A substantial detached characterful family house understood to date back to the 1930s. The spacious accommodation comprises entrance porch, large central dining hall with fireplace and wide split staircase rising to the first floor, inner hall with cupboards and cloakroom, drawing room, sitting room (both dual aspect and with fireplace) and a modern kitchen/breakfast room with family dining area. There is also a side hall/boot room and utility which connect the house to large tandem garage with separate workshop at the rear. To the first floor there is a principal bedroom suite with dressing room/walk-in wardrobe and en suite shower room, a second bedroom (also with en suite), three further double bedrooms and main bathroom. The salient feature of this property is the mature 1.6 acre plot with beautiful mature trees. The property also offers scope to extend, subject to obtaining the necessary consents.
The property is situated in the picturesque hamlet of East Cholderton located between the villages of Thruxton and Amport (both of which have a primary school and public house – Amport C of E Primary is one of the highest rated in the country and Farleigh School is within a short drive), and is within convenient reach of the A303 which allows easy access to London and the West Country. The White Horse public house in Thruxton is within a short walk of the property and there are also many delightful walks nearby amongst the water meadows, designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Andover offers a comprehensive range of shopping, educational and leisure facilities, and there are mainline railway stations in both the town and the nearby village of Grateley (both providing fast services to Waterloo). The cathedral cities of Winchester and Salisbury are both within 30 minutes’ drive.
