Hurstbourne Tarrant, Andover, Hampshire Sp11
An exciting opportunity to purchase a detached late 1920s house offering tremendous scope and potential for substantial enlargement or replacement (STPP) standing in a 1.3 acre plot comprising a large level garden and private wooded area rising up the Valley situated between the sought after villages of Hurstbourne Tarrant and Ibthorpe
A detached house understood to have been built in the late 1920s constructed of brick elevations beneath a tiled roof in need of modernisation together with a detached garage/workshop. The house stands in a 1.3 acre plot, the majority of which is level and laid to lawn extending from the rear of the property. The back section of the garden enjoys fabulous views across paddocks and countryside with the River Swift and Test Way footpath located at the rear of this area. The land beyond this area slopes up the Valley where there is an uncultivated wooded area.
The property is situated in the heart of the village of Hurstbourne Tarrant with excellent local amenities including a store, church, primary school, garage (for car sales only), public house with restaurant and rooms, veterinary practice and tea room. The school and hall are both within a short walk along Church Street. There are bus services to Newbury (about 10½ miles) and Andover (about 6 miles), where a more comprehensive range of shopping, educational and leisure facilities can be found. The nearby towns of Whitchurch and Andover have mainline railway stations providing fast services to London (Waterloo) as well as Newbury, and the A303 is close at hand allowing convenient access to London via the M3 and to the West Country.
