Houghton, Stockbridge, Hampshire So20
An exciting opportunity to acquire a mid terrace period cottage offering great scope and potential for modernisation and restyling, together with a south westerly facing level garden, situated within this highly desirable Test Valley village close to Stockbridge, the River Test and the Test Way
A mid terrace cottage, one of an attractive terrace of just three properties, constructed of Flemish bond brick elevations incorporating decorative burnt header/blue bricks with pebble dash above beneath a clay tile roof. The doors, verge boards and cast iron guttering are painted in the Estate’s dark green colour. The property requires modernisation and has the benefit of two off-road parking spaces within a short walk of the cottage as well as a useful brick outbuilding.
The property is situated within the Bossington Estate, on the edge of the highly sought after village of Houghton, which has delightful walks traversing the River Test and on to the renowned Test Way, Clarendon Way and Monarch Way. There is also an excellent public house/restaurant (The Boot Inn) and a church, both within a short walk. Further facilities can be found in the neighbouring town of Stockbridge (2.7 miles) which offers a variety of shops, a Post Office, Dental Practice, chemist and doctor’s surgery as well as hotels, restaurants, public houses, and churches. The cathedral cities of Salisbury and Winchester are both within a twenty minute drive, and the A303 is close at hand allowing convenient access to London, South Coast and the West Country.
