Nether Wallop, Stockbridge, Hampshire So20
An attractive spacious semi-detached period cottage quietly situated close to the village green in the heart of this popular village near Stockbridge
A Grade II Listed semi-detached cottage constructed of brick and tile clad elevations beneath a tiled roof with an attractive Flemish bond brick façade. The original cottage (one of a pair) built in the late 1700s was sympathetically and substantially extended in the 1980s, when Nether Wallop’s long established Mouland’s Builders and Carpenters yard finally closed and was developed for housing. The cottage had, for many decades, been used as an ‘office’ and meeting place for the craftsmen employed by the firm. Some of their initials are carved into the beam in the sitting room. The accommodation comprises a sitting room featuring a beautiful inglenook fireplace with log burning stove and bread oven, open plan kitchen/dining room, rear entrance hall and cloakroom. To the first floor there are two large double bedrooms and bathroom. The rear garden is well stocked and well enclosed with a good size entertaining paved area and ornamental pond. There are two parking spaces in front of the garage which is currently fitted out as a utility room and workshop, with excellent storage space for bikes. There is also generous parking at the front and rear of the property.
The property is situated close to the village green in the very heart of the village of Nether Wallop which has a primary school, church and village hall. Over Wallop has a shop/post office and public house. Middle Wallop has a garage/store, public house and village hall and there is also an excellent garage/store in nearby Kentsboro, just a short distance from Danebury Iron Age Fort. The picturesque town of Stockbridge is within 5 miles; Salisbury, Winchester and Andover are all within a twenty minute drive and offer a comprehensive range of shopping, educational and leisure facilities, as well as mainline railway stations providing fast services to Waterloo in about 1hr 15 mins. There is also a mainline railway station in nearby Grateley which has excellent car parking and frequent trains to Waterloo. Basingstoke is also within a 30 minute drive, and the A303 is close at hand allowing convenient access to London and the West Country.
